Even in a world where I performed sweaty dropkicks and hair-pull mat slams, I doubt I would look as good doing it as The Bella Twins. The WWE Divas, in town for “Raw” tonight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, spoke to the Powder Room about how they keep their cool in the wrestling ring.
POWDER ROOM: What makeup and hair products are essential?
NIKKI BELLA: Primer is my best friend. I use Dermalogica, and I love Jane Iredale foundation. It’s kind of sporty. And as far as hair goes, I try to use as little product as possible, because it just ends up looking greasy.
BRIE BELLA: It’s HDTV, so I use more natural makeup like Jane Iredale. It lets my skin breathe, so it won’t break out. And I love just using a great shampoo and conditioner – no gels or hair spray.
PR: Any secret beauty tips?
NIKKI: A lot of times we don’t get enough sleep, we’re always on the go. I put cucumbers on my eyes and ice underneath to reduce the black and swelling. Also, my face swells very easily – and that’s the money shot, right? Especially on TV days, I drink a lot of hot lemon water. I can’t believe how well it thins out the face, takes the water weight off.
BRIE: Eye creams work, but sometimes Vaseline is best. It gives me a fresh, dewy look, and keeps my skin looking healthy.
PR: What’s your workout routine like?
BRIE: Usually, SoulCycle and hot yoga. One thing I’m not big on is heavy weights; I like more Pilates-style, so I’m toning as much as I’m burning calories.
NIKKI: One thing my boyfriend taught me is it’s all about the booty and the squats. They’re the key to killing cellulite and getting a bigger butt.
