Phoebe Tonkin Wows for Byrdie!
Popular online fashion and beauty platform from the creators of WhoWhatWhere, Byrdie Australia, features The Originals beauty, Phoebe Tonkin (Haley) in the latest series, “Self-Directed.” She collaborates with makeup artist Georgie Eisdell and hairstylist Christian Wood, to bring her three favorite beauty looks to life and dishes on some of her beauty own secrets. Below is a sneak peek of what Phoebe had to say about the feature.
“I love Pinterest and I love looking at photographs and different kinds of inspiration. I just wanted to do something different,” Tonkin says. The actress confessed she’s not exactly a beauty maven, admitting the majority of the time her beauty preparations consist of grabbing a hairbrush. “I’m really bad at it,” she laughed.
“I wish I was better at it, and I’ve been doing this for so long that I should be able to do my makeup, but I actually just don’t wear a lot of makeup in my day-to-day life. I’m not that experimental with hair and makeup, so I thought this was a nice chance to do something that was still me but something a little more planned than what I normally do with my hair and makeup.” Think smudgy eyes, just-bitten lips, braids, and even a hair ribbon or two.
BYRDIE: What’s in your handbag right now?
PT: There are a couple of those great little Chanel lip glosses, an eyelash curler, my active serum, and a little Mason Pearson brush.
BYRDIE: What keeps you in werewolf fighting shape?
PT: I like being trained by ballerinas, so I go to someone called Mary Helen Bowers in New York, and here I met someone called Andie Hecker about five years ago and I’ve been training with her on and off for five years. She’s like the naughty ballerina. She’s great and she’s in L.A. So when I’m [in LA] for longer, I try to see her.
BYRDIE: What about when you’re working in Atlanta?
PT: I do the Ballet Beautiful videos and just walk.
