Vanessa Hudgens Shares Beauty Tips, Including Odd Mascara Advice: See Her New Hair

Vanessa Hudgens is one of the most stylish stars in Hollywood and she definitely has one of the prettiest Instagram pages you’ll ever see (it’s “Instaglam”).

Because she’s such a beauty, ladies listen whenever Hudgens dishes out beauty advice. However, one of her beauty tips might leave some fans scratching their heads.

Vanessa Hudgens recently shared some of her best beauty advice with Celebuzz, and most of it was surprisingly simple. She revealed three top tips: rock a bold lip, don’t skip the bronzer, and “lather on” the mascara. Say what?

“Lather that stuff on! Benefit always has made the best mascaras, and I’ve always stuck to them for so long. Just lather that into your lash line and pull it out — You can never go wrong!”

Lathering is usually something you do with shampoo, not mascara. If you tried to lather the black stuff on, you’d end up looking like a messier version of Taylor Momsen. Vanessa probably wasn’t encouraging girls to go for the raccoon look — she was probably just referencing the old wiggle trick. To try it, place your mascara wand on your lash line and wiggle it back and forth to make sure that you completely cover the base of your lashes. Continue moving back and forth in a zig-zag pattern out through the tips of your eyelashes.

Hudgens’ other beauty tips are also excellent advice. A bold lip is great for days when you’re in a rush — you can skip most of your eye makeup and still look stylish and sexy. With Halloween coming up, now is the perfect time to choose a bright orange hue. If you feel like oranges and pinks are too spring-y for fall, invest in a classic bright red lip color instead.

Bronzer is great for the winter and fall months because you can use it to create a sun-kissed glow even though you’re spending more time indoors. To contour, make a fish face and use a flat brush to apply it underneath your cheekbones. You can also dust it on your forehead and along your jaw line. Just make sure that you don’t use a color that’s too dark — you might end up looking like a zombie.

If the dreary days of fall and winter start getting you down, you can also take a page from Vanessa Hudgens by completely changing your hair color. According to E! Online, the actress recently showed off her new “autumn hair.” It’s an ombre style that’s dark at the roots and bright red at the ends.

In one of her Instagram captions, Hudgens revealed that she drastically changed her hair color because she’s so excited for Halloween. In the accompanying photo, she went for a really bold look by rocking the red hair with bright red lipstick.

It’s nice to know that those leaked nude photos haven’t scared her away from snapping selfies.
