Addison Rae’s Beauty Routine & Go-To Crimping Hair Tool

Published

on

In Bustle’s Beauty Detail, we dive into the beauty bags of our favorite talents for intel on the rituals that keep them glowing and the MVPs (most valuable products) they can’t live without. Here, Addison Rae tells Bustle about her self-care essentials, her strategic approach to fragrance, and the early 2000s trend she’s bringing back in style.

Addison Rae’s first perfume obsession was Britney Spears’ Fantasy. She would go to the mall and buy the mini bottles, so she could always have the scent on hand to spritz herself with. But she also used different fragrances for different occasions.

“If I was going on a date, I would wear a different fragrance than if I was going home or seeing my family,” Rae tells me over Zoom. “I’ve always thought it’s really cool to associate different moments with smells.” That approach to scent is what inspired her to launch her own fragrance line, Addison Rae Fragrance — a collection of three unique formulas, each catered towards a certain mood (Happy AF, Hyped AF, and Chill AF, to be exact).

This isn’t the social media star’s first foray into the beauty world — Item Beauty, Rae’s skin care and makeup brand, launched in 2020. Though the entrepreneur entered stardom through her viral TikTok dancing videos, a quick scroll through her social media accounts (which total hundreds of millions of followers across her Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter) will prove she has a seemingly-innate beauty savvy. Whether she’s rocking ’90s-era butterfly hair clips or pigtails, Rae is perpetually at the forefront of what’s trending.

One source of inspo for the brand founder? Tumblr. “I had Tumblr growing up and now it’s so funny to see Tumblr-esque vibes coming back into style,” says Rae, laughing. She happens to be wearing one of these trends as we Zoom: bright purple eyeshadow. “Colorful eyeshadow was very trendy in the early pop 2000s days, which have been coming back a lot,” she says.

Beyond the joyful and experimental beauty looks she likes to wear, Rae says she turns to self-care for reasons beyond her appearance. “Self-care is actually tending to your heart, your soul, and your mind,” she tells me. “It’s about relaxing and truly giving yourself a break.” For her, that means spending an hour on skin care, sure, but also on breathing, meditation, and listening to music (“My boyfriend will play guitar, and that’s something I really love that helps me relax,” she says).

The skin care component of Rae’s self-care regimen is no joke. “I love to gua sha. I sit in front of a facial steamer for like 15 minutes,” she says, rattling off some of her beauty rituals. “I also have a body roller that has three balls on the end that you roll onto your skin. I’ve looked at a lot of videos online to figure out the perfect way to do it — I’m not a professional, but I’ve learned a lot from YouTube.”

Here, Rae tells Bustle about the beauty products she’s currently obsessed with — including a hair tool that’ll bring you right back to the year 2000.

Her Self-Care Essential

Dr. Dennis Gross Pro Facial Steamer
Sephora

“This is a product I live and die for. You put water in it — I’ll use bottled water, just so it’s even more purified — then it heats up and steams your face. Sometimes I’ll put on a mask and put the steamer on it, which is so nice. It feels like a steam room, but a portable one. My skin loves the humidity — I’m from the south — so this gives me that steamy feeling of a humid day and makes me feel incredible.”

Her Favorite Hair Tool

ghd Contour
Pleij Salon

“I love this ghd crimper. Crimping is a 2000s thing that I think is so cute and fun. It gives your hair so much texture, but not in a way that’s a curl. When you see someone with crimped hair, it’s like, ‘What is that?’ It just looks so unique and different.”

Her Go-To Body Lotion

Epicuren Coconut Hydrating Milk
Amazon

“Epicuren has this really incredible coconut-y lotion — it smells and feels incredible.”

Her MVP Shower Product

Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub
Ulta

“I love a body scrub. Frank Body has one that’s kind of like dirt — that’s the vibe of it. It was super trendy when I was growing up, and my mom didn’t let me buy it. Then finally I got my own, so I use it in the shower to exfoliate.”

Her Must-Have Mascara

ITEM Beauty By Addison Rae Lash Snack Clean Lengthening Mascara
Sephora

“I’m obsessed with my Item Beauty Lash Snack. It’s my go-to every day — I have it on right now.”

Her Nighttime Fragrance

Chill AF
Addison Rae Fragrance

“Usually when I’m going somewhere at night, I’ll use the Chill AF fragrance. Or when I want to relax or if I’m on a date, I’ll wear this just to keep me calm and cool.”

Her Go-To Lip Product

M.A.C. Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare
Ulta

“For lips, I love a good M.A.C. lip liner — they have incredible colors. Boldly Bare is one I really like. Sometimes I’ll go for a ’90s look with a maroon or dark plum liner with a nude inside. That’s more dressy though — something I’d wear when I go out. Usually I’ll just apply lip liner all over. I like using this brownish-nude to dab onto my face. I’ll put it on the bridge of my nose to match my lips and give me that sun-kissed look.”

Tweets About Jennifer Garner’s Viral Video Bathing Her Cat

Published

on

Jennifer Garner is many things. A top-notch actress, a mother, a philanthropist, and apparently, a cat wrangler. Sort of. A video of the Alias star recently went viral for all the best reasons, as it is simultaneously ridiculous and relatable. The viral cat video was posted by Twitter user Isabel Alcántara, who captioned it: “This video of Jennifer Garner bathing her cat takes up at least 1/4 of my mental real estate.” One viewing of the nearly-two-minute-long clip will have anyone agreeing.

In the video, Garner attempts to wash her cat Moose, who had apparently “pooped his pants.” The 49-year-old entertainer then struggles to keep her feline friend in the sink, to get him clean, and to avoid being clawed. Those who bathe their own cats know that walking away from such an activity unscathed is impossible, and by the end, Garner has some nasty cuts on her neck.

While the video features Garner doing something fairly mundane, she’s hilarious and entertaining. Everything she says throughout the clip is an instantly iconic quote, including such gems as, “He’s befouled” and “What’s to be done?” At one point, Garner moves the cat’s head so as to make him sing, “Yes I’ve seen the Muffin Man!” Of course, at the end, when it seems like the ordeal is over, she realizes she missed a step: “Oooh. We didn’t get to do conditioner.”

It didn’t take long for thousands of Twitter users to watch the video and share it, making Garner’s cat-washing adventure quickly go viral. People obviously loved every second of it, and they made their adoration known via tweets.
