Celebrities are just like us. They pump their own gas, buy groceries, pick their kids up from school, and get beauty tips from Oscar-winning movie stars. In the case of Jennifer Garner, she too is an award-winning actor, but that doesn’t stop her from taking advice from her friend Reese Witherspoon.
Posting an Instagram video this week, Garner revealed that when it comes to beauty tips and tricks, she goes to the pros. Taking instructions from Witherspoon’s new book Whiskey In a Teacup, Garner followed her famous friend’s directions on how to style your hair, which includes using mousse, hairspray, and a lot of hot rollers.
Following the steps right down to the application of lipstick (this doesn’t help your hair, but we always feel better with a bright lip), Garner set her hair and then jumped in the car, windows down (very important) and made the drive to her children’s school to pick them up. Once parked, Garner removed her hot rollers to debut beautiful and bouncy curls. On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t have underestimated the importance of the lipstick.
It gives us warm female empowerment fuzzies to see Witherspoon getting support for her new book from her close friend Garner. We also appreciate a celeb who gives advice that is both realistic and has great results. We’re not pointing fingers, but we’re kinda pointing fingers.
Whiskey In A Teacup was released on September 18 and is Witherspoon’s guide to infusing Southern charm into health, beauty, entertaining and attitude. The new how-to book is the first from Witherspoon, who curates her own online book club.
The Hollywood A-lister has also become the go-to producer for taking bestsellers written by women and making them into hugely successful films and TV shows, including Wild, Big Little Lies, and Gone Girl. If Witherspoon decides to turn Whiskey In A Teacup into her next film project, we have an idea of who should star. It’s Reese Witherspoon. We didn’t say it was a creative idea.
