Arrow star Katie Cassidy posted a photo to Instagram on Tuesday showcasing her edgy nose ring. Sporting a natural look, the actress wore only mascara, and had her tousled hair cascading over her shoulders. With her camera angled from below, it’s clear that Katie Cassidy’s Instagram photo was meant to show off her nose piercing. She captioned her picture with a quote from Marilyn Monroe: “Madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
This starlet is anything but boring—her Instagram page is overflowing with artsy snapshots and her tomboyish fashion. Katie Cassidy manages to stay fresh faced, no matter the occasion. Whether she’s at the beach, out for dinner with friends, or on set, she keeps her look pretty and natural.
Katie Cassidy’s Beauty Regimen
A self-proclaimed tomboy, Katie Cassidy keeps her hair and makeup routine as simple as you’d think. When Us Magazine asked her about her beauty secrets, she mentioned some of her essentials. Never leaving home without Eucerin hand cream or her Clinique chubby sticks in her beauty bag, her routine remains as natural as possible. A nail polish fanatic, Cassidy can also be spotted wearing her favorite shade of OPI polish, “You Don’t Know Jacques,” which is a dark grey-brown color. That’s right—hand cream, chubby sticks that double as a lipstick and cheek color, and nail polish are the extent of the beauty products in her routine. Though painfully simple, her beauty advice comes just in time to help us out with our holiday makeup looks!
When asked about any makeup tips she’s picked up from experts on the sets of her many projects, the actress swore that they’d been learning from her! One of her most coveted (and interesting) beauty tips is ice. “I learned it from Paul Newman, he used to ice his face every morning, and can I tell you when I wake up in the morning and have to be on set at 5 am, my face is puffy. So sometimes I take an ice pack and I’ll sort of just set it there, so it totally takes the swelling down. And it kind of like tightens your skin, I guess,” the actress told Style Caster.
While her beauty routine is fairly simple, Katie Cassidy takes her skincare very seriously. Since her busy schedule keeps her on the go most of the time, she’s got an on-the-road skincare regimen to be envied. Some products that she keeps with her at all times include a Perricone eye cream, La Mer Regenerating Serum, Moroccanoil Body Soufflé, and Garnier refreshing remover Cleansing Towelettes.
We are completely jealous of how little effort Katie Cassidy has to put forth in order to achieve her edgy bombshell look!
