How Celebrities Always have Such Perfect Skin

You know exactly what we are talking about. All you need to do is turn on the TV or look in a magazine to see the flawless faces of celebrities beaming back at you. Pearly white teeth. Perfect lashes. Eyebrows plucked to perfection. And the most flawless complexion imaginable.

How do the stars manage to pull this off so consistently? Well, today we are going to dive into that topic and uncover all the dirty secrets celebrities have been using to keep up their beautiful images.

Powerful Products

The first method celebrities employ is one that, in theory, everyone should be able to do. But in reality celebrities vast fortunes allow them to buy products most of us simply cannot afford

You will often see products saying this product is good for rejuvinating your skin. But often this is simply a marketing tool designed to lure you in. Sure, these products will rejuvenate your skin a bit. But cheaper products aren’t that effective. Whereas celebrities can afford the products that are backed by medical research and massive funding. The types of products that are 100% guaranteed to work or your money back.

Not to mention celebrities can also afford a lot of the more expensive face masks, moisturizers, and cleaning products.

Powerful Editing

But we can’t attribute their flawless skin just to their ability to buy the best products. Even with the best stuff, everyone’s skin is prone to the occasional spot or bad day. Bags under the eyes or eyebrows going out of control.

But celebrities have one huge advantage we do not. They have a team of professionals that will carefully edit their photos in magazines or alter their image on TV to make their skin look flawless.

Editing photos has been a big issue as of late. The use of this editing software to alter appearances has caused a lot of people to aim for unrealistic body standards and is a leading issue in the mental health battle. More and more celebrities lately have been speaking out against using photo editing and try to post more natural pictures. And that is all well and good. But we guarantee that magazines will still brush up their skin to make them that extra bit flawless.

Makeup

The easiest way to make yourself look better than you actually are. Makeup has been around since the ancient Egyptians and most likely before. Our earliest ancestors used it to blend into their surroundings and intimidate their foes. Now we use it to make ourselves more attractive or to show off our creative flair.

And celebrities often have a team of dedicated makeup professionals who use only the best products to make sure they are looking fantastic. A lot of the time flawless skin on a celeb is actually just a very fine layer of carefully applied makeup. It’s no wonder people think Hollywood is all fake.

Stressless Lives

Celebrities like to go on Instagram live and moan about how hard they have it. The stress of haters and the paparazzi get to them and they need to vent their struggles. And yes it might be difficult. But I guarantee they lose less sleep over it than someone working two jobs just to pay for their meals.

Celebrities experience a lot less stress than the average person. And when they are stressed they can just pay to go to a spa or book a personal yoga class. This means they often have much clearer skin as they are a lot less stressed than the average person.

The Celebrities that get Mistaken for Someone else Constantly

A question we often ask ourselves and our friends is ‘what celebrity do you look like?‘  However, we rarely ask ourselves who do we think a celebrity looks like. Below is a list of the celebrities that most often get mistaken for someone else:

Daniel Radcliff and Elijah Wood

Despite the fact that Wood is nearly an entire decade older than Radcliff, the pair have been mistaken for each other for years. Each of them has amassed a number of stories about being mistaken for the other, with Radcliff even being handed a photo of Wood to sign once at a film premiere on which he wrote: “I am not Elijah Wood, Love Daniel”. The two have come to embrace their similarities over the years, in fact, it has become a long-running joke between them, leading to them saying that they needed to play brothers in a film one day as well as challenging one another to a fight.

Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard

This pair of Hollywood’s most beautiful redheads are often mistaken for each other. A mistake I myself have made plenty of times! Even the legendary actor and director Ron Howard, Bryce’s father, has mistaken Chastain for his own daughter. Despite their similar appearances, the two women grew up in very different circumstances. As the daughter of a famous writer and filmmaker Dallas Howard grew up in LA surrounded by Hollywood’s elite, whereas Chastain was raised by a single mother who often struggled to put food on the table. However, both would grow up to lead similar careers, starring in both blockbusters and critically acclaimed films. They even appeared alongside each other in the film The Help.

Margot Robbie and Jaime Pressley

Whilst others on this list look similar, Robbie and Pressley look near identical so much so that their fans have a hard time telling them apart and with the same face shape, hair parting, and even eye color it’s easy to see why! Despite Pressley being born in the United States thirteen years before Robbie in Australia, people often believe the pair to be twins. You can find Jaime on the smaller screen in television roles such as the sitcom My Name is Earl, whereas Robbie prefers the cinema screen with roles such as Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe. When the two finally met in person, even they were surprised by how similar they appeared.

Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley

Unlike the others on this list, Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley’s celebrity lookalike notoriety was not on accident. The pair first met on the set of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999 where Portman who was sixteen at the start of filming, played the young Queen Padme Amidala. Knightley was later cast mostly due to her likeness to Portman to play the character Sabe, the Queen’s body double who serves her as a bodyguard as well as standing in for her when Padme wants to experience life as a normal citizen. When the girls were dressed up in their makeup and costumes on set even their own mothers couldn’t tell them apart. As the pair grew up, their differences in appearance have started to shine through more which each other become recognizable actors in their own right.

Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth

It is no surprise that these two brothers are often mistaken for one another with their matching blue eyes, dashing smiles, and Hollywood mandated six-packs. Originally from Australia, the pair have soon become recognized as some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have worked on franchises such as The Hunger Games and The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Before the pair became Hollywood megastars though, they both stared in the Australian soap opera Neighbours with both of them later auditioning for the role of Thor in the 2011 blockbuster of the same name, of which Chris ultimately won the role. However there are rumors of Liam playing another character to wield the hammer, Beta Ray Bill and their other brother Luke Hemsworth has previously played a fictional version of Thor in the film Thor: Ragnarök, so perhaps the brothers will all be reunited on screen in the MCU one day.

The Famous Soccer Players who Contributed Millions to Charity

It is no secret that soccer players earn a lot of money, with some of the most successful, such as Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo, earning hundreds of millions every year. Whilst there are definitely a number of soccer players who, some might say, do not donate enough money to charity in relation to their salary, there are many players who donate a considerable amount of their wage. Some of the most charitable soccer players, and the charities that they donate the most to are listed here, and you might just be swayed towards supporting their soccer team after seeing the facts.

 

Didier Drogba

If you are at all familiar with Didier Drogba, perhaps most famous for his position in Chelsea, then it will come as no surprise that he is on this list of the most charitable soccer players. Drogba is famously credited with ending a five-year civil war in his country, the Ivory Coast, has pleaded with both sides to lay down their weapons, which resulted in a cease-fire. Drogba was listed as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2010 for his part in creating peace. Alongside this, Drogba has donated millions to charity and created the Didier Drogba foundation to provide financial and material help in health and education in Africa.

 

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi is the most well-paid soccer player in the world right now, as aforementioned, supposedly earning $127million in 2019 alone. Messi has been putting a lot of that money towards a range of different charitable causes. He is a brand ambassador of UNICEF and has paid a considerable amount of money to many charities, donating $1.1million to help during the COVID-19 crisis.  Messi founded the Leo Messi Foundation, similarly to Drogba and other successful soccer players, which helps many people in need across the world, particularly helping vulnerable children and healthcare groups.

 

Jermain Defoe

Defoe is known for being extremely charitable and giving, so much so that he was appointed an OBE in 2018 for all of the charity work that he has done. As well as donating to charity and setting up the Jermain Defoe Foundation, he is known for the support that he gave to Sunderland fan, Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old fan who was suffering from cancer. Despite Bradley sadly passing in 2017, Defoe still supports his family and speaks of him regularly. The charity work that Defoe does, as well as the others on this list, might just inspire you to look up your local soccer club and work to become just as successful – and charitable – like them. If you do decide to give soccer a go, make sure you buy the best of everything you need, there are many websites and blogs that can help with that, listing the best goalkeeper gloves to a range of the best nike soccer cleats.

 

Neymar

Neymar has, in the past, stated that the motivation for his success in soccer is to be able to donate to charity and help his home country Brazil. Not only does he have his own charity, Instituto Neymar Jr., which is dedicated to social causes and helping thousands of families, but he has also greatly helped the organization Waves for Water and works with Humanity & Inclusion. Furthermore, Neymar regularly organizes charity events and games to raise money for good causes, as well as donating millions to a range of different causes himself. Most recently, he donated almost $1million, split between UNICEF and a benefit fund in Brazil to help in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Why These 5 Hollywood Actors Appeared in Video Games

As video games frow in popularity, it appears that more Hollywood actors are appearing in well-known video games, as characters of themselves or to voice them. Many notable celebrities such as Gary Oldman in the Call of Duty franchise; as well as Sean Bean, Mark Hamill, Liam Neeson, and Samuel L. Jackson. Many people are more likely to buy games if they are aware famous actors are involved. This has helped companies release and sell more games throughout the years due to the increasing popularity and interest in gaming.

They Help Promote the Game

One reason for using Hollywood actors is that they help promote the game. Using high-ranking actors that many people are familiar with is a great way to sell people the game. If a person is aware that an actor they enjoy watching is in a particular video game or franchise, they are more likely to purchase the game due to this. Finding different ways to market games and having them appeal to a certain target audience can be hard; commercial marketing has become tougher and more competitive, therefore having celebrities promote the game through the use of social media is an efficient and effective way to sell the game.

 

The Game is Likely to Sell Better.

Using Hollywood icons helps to sell more copies of the game. Big names will create a large market, as they will be able to promote and encourage fans to buy the game due to their influence on society. Many games are rising in popularity due to the inclusion of celebrities within the games. There are many releases such as the game Warpath by Lilithgames, the Call of Duty franchise, and more. With these, celebrities are able to market these for the game companies, which is more successful than common marketing campaigns.

 

Why They Have Been Chosen

It is likely they have been chosen for their popularity. The more popular an actor is, the more likely it is that the game will sell better. In the Call of Duty franchise, Batman star Gary Oldman is used to voice a character. In doing this, it allowed for the game company to sell a staggering 25 million copies. This shows the power and influence that Hollywood actors can have within the gaming industry, as they are well-known and therefore fans will almost certainly purchase copies of the games, for good reason. Furthermore, other notable actors such as Liam Neeson, who appeared in the Fallout series; and is well-known for his roles in the Taken films. Alongside other actors such as Sean Bean who appeared in The Elder Scrolls, Mark Hamill in Batman, and Samuel L. Jackson in Grand Theft Auto. Each of these games has had a highly successful launch, with many still playing games such as Fallout today, even years after its release. This shows the influence that Hollywood stars have, and their ability to market and sell to the gaming community.

The Most Lavish Celebrity Homes Ever

For some reason, we are absolutely obsessed with celebrities. You could say it is only our obsession that raises anyone to celebrity status. We love to look at these stars and imagine that life for ourselves. We awn over their outfits and constantly ask who is wearing what. We coo over celebrity couplings and sip up the tea related to celebrity breakups.

One thing I have always loved is house hunting. Not that I can afford a nicer house. But I like to dream. And so do a lot of other people which means we spend a lot of time fangirling over celebrity homes. Today I am going to take a look at the most lavish celebrity homes ever built. So let’s dive right into one of my absolute favorites.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie isn’t one for being over the top or extravagant. She is humble, reserved in a confident way, and has been a fashion icon for what seems like her entire career. And her sense of style when it comes to her Australian based properties. Using Strata management Adelaide, she has managed to cultivate a small collection of apartments which she has transformed into a multi-level house. The room decor is a mix of minimalism meets regency England. Lots of baby blues and gold trims but paired with a more modern look.

This is by far her most lavish house. And it is mostly for show. Used to entertain or as a bolt hole while she is in this part of Australia. The rest of her properties are a lot more subtle and more like what you would expect to find from anyone with a high-end job. She has, many times, welcomed people and cameras into these homes to conduct interviews or even host musical events. We simply cannot get enough of Kylie.

Jennifer Lopez

The glamorous superstar Jennifer Lopez is known to like the finer things in life. She is not afraid of flaunting her style in the form of fashionable jewelry and luscious outfits. And her home is just as fantastic to match.

Living in a decadent, mansion in Bel-air, built by a famous architect a while back. The house boasts everything you would expect from a celebrity home. An infinity pool and sports courts. Home theatres and gym. A kitchen that would make your head spin and plenty of room to entertain guests.

The outside is often lit in a beautiful melding of greens and purples. The whole area is lit up like a nightclub in a tropical paradise. I imagine nowhere would be better in the summer.

Bill Gates

How could we not include one of the world’s richest men? While he may not be number one in that field anymore, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t accumulated a considerable saving. The only reason he has lost a lot of it is due to his charitable donations.

And as you would expect from a man of his considerable wealth, Bill Gates home is a sight to behold. We hesitate to even call it a home because it is more like 3 super mansions combined.

Hosting a staggering six kitchens, multiple isolated living spaces. Full art installations and entertainment complexes. And a miniature forest around the perimeter. It is truly a paradise with something for everyone.

And, being the creator of Microsoft, the complex is fitted with a lot of fantastic techs as well. State of the art security systems would put a lot of private contractors to shame.
