Beauty Secrets with Keira Knightley

Keira recently did an interview to InStyle that literally crashed the internet! She shared some beauty secrets to the well known session of the website, and told about losing hair due movie makeovers, which makes her use wigs for the past five years.

I have dyed my hair virtually every colour imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.

She also shared on her new routine, with now being a mother.

I have naturally crazy, curly hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks. I also use conditioner every two or three days. My skin has also become significantly drier with age, so I moisturise and I try to drink as much water as possible. Aside from that, my teeth are always brushed, and I use lip balm. My new approach is, “Do what you can remember, and don’t worry about it too much.”

“It only takes five seconds to mark X”

Keira Knightley has recorded a 30-second video to urge younger voters to participate in the EU referendum.

She worked with the pro-EU group We Are Europe, who have recorded similar videos with the actor and model Lily Cole and musicians Eliza Doolittle and Big Narstie.

It only takes five seconds to practice the perfect awards face. And it takes five seconds to mark an X in a ballot box. Five seconds to stop others fucking with your future.

The video is neutral, but Knightley has previously added her name to a list of celebrities backing the campaign for Britain to stay in the European Union. Last month, many arts figures, including Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Cumberbatch signed a letter to support the remain campaign.

From the smallest gallery to the biggest blockbuster, many of us have worked on projects that would never have happened without vital EU funding, or by collaborating across borders,” it read. “Britain is not just stronger in Europe, it is more imaginative and more creative, and our global creative success would be severely weakened by walking away.”

The poll on 13 June indicates that 53% support a Brexit, while 47% would like to remain in the EU.

Keira Among U.K. Celebrities Opposing Brexit

Benedict Cumberbatch, Helena Bonham Carter, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Keira Knightley are among more than 250 personalities from the British entertainment and arts world who have signed a letter urging Brits to vote to remain in the European Union next month.

In an open letter published in the Guardian, they warn that in the case of a British exit from the EU, a so-called Brexit, the country would become “an outsider shouting from the wings.”

Filmmakers Danny Boyle and Sam Taylor-Johnson, music star Paloma Faith, designer Vivienne Westwood and author John Le Carre are among the other signatories of the letter, coordinated by “Stronger,” the official pro-EU campaign that prime minister David Cameron is also supporting.

“Britain is not just stronger in Europe, it is more imaginative and more creative,” the letter also says. “Our global creative success would be severely weakened by walking away.”

It further argues: “From the Bard [William Shakespeare] to Bowie, British creativity inspires and influences the rest of the world. We believe that being part of the EU bolsters Britain’s leading role on the world stage.”

The referendum deciding whether the U.K. remains in the EU takes place on June 23. Cameron’s ruling Conservative Party is split on the issue, with former London mayor Boris Johnson being a vocal supporter of a Brexit.
