Millie Bobby Brown has shared her self-isolation skincare regime with her fans.

The Stranger Things star shared a video on Instagram TV and explained what her self-care routine is like now she’s at home and social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Millie answered a series of beauty questions from fans alongside her sister-in-law Rachel as the pair had a pampering session in their pyjamas.

When asked what her favourite product was from her hugely successful debut skincare collection, Florence by Mills, the 16-year-old picked her Look Alive Eye Balm.

“For every day purposes… my favourite Florence product would be the Look Alive Eye Balm, or the 16 Wishes glosses,” Millie shared, referencing the trio of lip glosses that was part of a capsule collection released in January, ahead of her 16th birthday in February.

She also claimed that the limited-edition Love Liv eyeshadow palette was one of her top products, which was created in memory of her friend who passed away after a battle with cancer, because it “means a lot to her.”

The Godzilla: King of the Monsters star also teased new Florence by Mills products and said she’s always looking to adapt to the ever-changing beauty industry.

“Make-up and skincare are constantly evolving, and I’ve always wanted to make sure Florence is moving with the times and staying present in my age and not just taking in one category of skincare and make-up,” she explained.

During the video, Millie applied the soothing Florence by Mills 16 Wishes Better Together Peel-Off Mask to “reset” her skin and later used the Dreamy Dew Moisturiser, the Glow Yeah Lip Oil, and finished off with her Zero Chill Face Mist.

Jennifer Aniston pulled out all of the stops at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

The 50-year-old, who won the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in The Morning Show, stood out in a vintage white silk dress designed by John Galliano back when he was creative director of Christian Dior between 1996 and 2011.

Speaking about her outfit during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, Jennifer explained that she actually owns the gown.

“This is John Galliano for Christian Dior, this is a vintage dress that I sort of gave to myself as a present,” she said. “This is an investment. These are designers that are working for particular houses – I only have a couple.”

Jennifer completed her ensemble with jewellery from Fred Leighton.

But she wasn’t the only star to opt for white at the SAG Awards – Riverdale star Lili Reinhart looked elegant in a two-tone Miu Miu ballgown, The Handmaid’s Tale actress Yvonne Strahovski rocked a simple white gown from Khyeli and Christian Louboutin heels, while Millie Bobby Brown sported a Louis Vuitton outfit.

Other celebrities to make the best-dressed list included Zoe Kravitz, who matched her peach Oscar de la Renta column gown with white gloves and Tiffany & Co. bling, Cynthia Erivo, who stunned in a fuchsia and orange number from Schiaparelli, and Lupita Nyong’o, who dazzled in a strapless Louis Vuitton gown with silver sequin design.

Elsewhere, Renee Zellweger, who collected the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her film Judy, rocked a midnight blue dress from Maison Margiela with Jimmy Choo stilettos, and Scarlett Johansson made a splash in a teal blue Armani dress with plunging neckline.

Millie Bobby Brown has won an award from officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for her vegan-friendly beauty line.

The Stranger Things actress unveiled her Florence by Mills collection earlier this year, with the range of skincare and make-up products aimed at teenagers and young people.

All products, including the Zero Chill Face Mist, Swimming Under the Eye Gel Pads, and Like a Light Skin Tint, are cruelty-free and Vegan Action certified, and now, Millie has been awarded one of PETA’s Libby Awards in recognition of her advocacy of animal rights.

“Brown’s skincare and make-up line, Florence by Mills – whose products contain no animal ingredients and are never tested on animals – earned her the award for Best Side Hustle for Animals,” a PETA representative commented.

In addition, singer Billie Eilish was presented with the Best Voice for Animals award for her promotion of a vegan lifestyle and for posting about instances of animal cruelty on her Instagram page, and Fuller House actor Juan Pablo Di Pace was named as the Brightest Onscreen Star for Animals after he starred in a PETA campaign urging people to avoid circus performances involving animals.

“Billie Eilish, Millie Bobby Brown, and Juan Pablo Di Pace are showing the world how easy it is to help animals by making kind choices in what we eat, what we wear, and how we entertain ourselves,” added PETA senior director of youth programmes, Marta Holmberg. “PETA is recognising them for using their star power to make the world a better place for all species.”

Other 2019 nominees included vegan musicians A$AP Rocky and sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey, as well as Hollywood stars Ruby Rose, Kat Graham, and Harley Quinn Smith.

Millie Bobby Brown apologises for faking beauty routine in video

Millie Bobby Brown has apologised for pretending to apply her new skincare products in a beauty routine video.

The Stranger Things star recently shared a video of herself on Instagram showing off her new teen skincare line, Florence by Mills, but the footage stirred up controversy immediately, as it appeared she wasn’t using any of the formulas.

Followers noticed that her make-up stayed perfect throughout the clip despite her telling viewers, “So I’m just applying now,” while rubbing her face and, “O.K. so I just wiped that off.”

Now, the 15-year-old has issued a statement on the invisible beauty routine, explaining she is a novice who didn’t intend to send such a mixed message.

“I’m still learning the best way to share my routines as I get to know this space better – I’m not an expert,” Millie posted to her Instagram account on Thursday. “I thought doing a quick video replicating my personal process for that night was O.K. but that’s not what was conveyed. I understand, I appreciate all of your feedback on this journey, please keep sharing your thoughts and I will too!”

It’s not the first time Millie has had to defend herself over her new skincare and beauty range, as she recently had to explain why she had included an eye cream – aimed at teenagers – in the Florence by Mills line.

Criticism over her Swimming Under the Eyes Gel Pads and the Look Alive Eye Balm prompted the actress to speak up to reveal that she had personally insisted that the products, traditionally designed for older women, were created for her debut collection.

“Eye balm has been kind of objectified for older people to take away the wrinkles,” she told Allure. “For me, I wanted to do a youthful one to brighten up your face and use it to take away dark circles if you’re studying late at night or you’ve got to go to school early in the morning.”

Millie Bobby Brown is to co-produce a movie titled A Time Lost for Netflix.

The actress, who shot to fame playing supernatural Eleven on the streaming service’s hit show Stranger Things, and her sister Paige Brown have confirmed they are working with bosses at the company on the original drama.

Millie and Paige have developed the original story, with Anna Klassen attached to adapt. The plot will explore a long-standing feud between two Long Island families which comes to a head when one of their teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer.

“We are so grateful to Netflix for their confidence in us and this beautiful story, which we have spent years writing and developing,” the sisters commented in a joint statement. “It’s about friendship, family and overcoming obstacles when it feels like the world is pushing you down. It’s been a labour of love, literally.”

Millie is to serve as a producer, while Paige and their father Robert Brown will executive produce under the family’s PCMA Productions company. The 15-year-old is also co-producing her upcoming detective movie Enola Holmes with her sibling, among others, under the banner.

Regarding A Time Lost, Netflix’s Lisa Nishimura, vice president of independent film and documentary features, praised Millie’s ideas for the project.

“Millie is an extraordinary creative talent. We’ve been lucky to have her in our family from the beginning of her career. It is a genuine thrill to witness Millie bring her distinct vision to the screen, now as a writer and producer, alongside her sister on this wonderful film,” she added.

Casting details and a potential release date have not yet been announced.

Millie Bobby Brown has defended creating an eye cream for teenagers in her new beauty collection.

The Stranger Things star launched her clean make-up and skincare line, Florence by Mills, which features beauty staples such as the Zero Chill Face Mist, Cheek Me Later Cream Blush, and Dreamy Dew Moisturizer, late last month.

However, it was the addition of the Swimming Under the Eyes Gel Pads and the Look Alive Eye Balm that has prompted Millie to speak up and explain why she included products that have been traditionally aimed at older women.

“Eye balm has been kind of objectified for older people to take away the wrinkles,” she told Allure. “For me, I wanted to do a youthful one to brighten up your face and use it to take away dark circles if you’re studying late at night or you’ve got to go to school early in the morning.”

The eye balm and eye gel pads have sold out on florencebymills.com since dropping on 26 August, along with most of her debut beauty collection.

And throughout the creative process, it was the whale-shaped Swimming Under the Eye Gel Pads that the 15-year-old was adamant had to be included, because she suffers “from puffy eyes in the morning”.

The Look Alive Eye Balm features a formula spiked with caffeine, a peptide blend, and cucumber extract.

“I wasn’t like, ‘I definitely need a peptide blend.’ I had no idea. I just knew I wanted botanicals, vitamins, and flower extracts involved,” Millie shared, before revealing that calming ingredients like lavender, rose, and cucumber were on her mood board during the creative process for Florence by Mills.

Millie Bobby Brown has launched her own cruelty-free and vegan beauty brand.

The 15-year-old has created Florence by Mills, named after her great-grandmother Florence and her own nickname Mills, which features skincare and make-up aimed at her generation.

In an interview with WWD, the Stranger Things star insisted she was hands-on during the development process.

“I’m very decisive. As soon as I make a decision, that’s my decision, and I will do it. There’s not regret, usually,” she said. “Every decision I make with Florence has been literally made in two or three seconds.

“‘I hate it, I love the colour, I hate the texture, what is going on,’ – it’s like immediately in my brain… I don’t think about things very long, I know exactly what I want.”

The line features products including Zero Chill Face Mist, Swimming Under the Eye Gel Pads and Like a Light Skin Tint, with prices ranging from $10 (£8) to $34 (£28).

Florence by Mills will also donate part of the proceeds to the Olivia Hope Foundation, which was founded in honour of Brown’s late friend, Olivia Hope LoRusso, who died from acute myeloid leukaemia in 2017.

The actress drew on her experience of being in the make-up chair since she was 10 to create the collection and said youngsters around her age needed different products.

“I wanted to come into the space because there was a gap in the market for young people,” Brown said. “I guess I could never find anything that I liked to put on my face and it felt good. I’d take off my makeup and boom, another pimple would appear. There are multiple different products I’ve put on that weren’t good for me. Some of those were anti-ageing, and I was 10 years old.”

Florence by Mills will be sold at Ulta Beauty, Boots and online.

Millie Bobby Brown is the new brand ambassador for jewellery company Pandora. 

 The British actress has signed a two-year deal with the Danish brand, known for its charm bracelets, and is to front a campaign for an upcoming collection that celebrates empowerment and self-expression.  

 “I feel extremely honoured to be partnering with Pandora,” she said in a statement. “I love Pandora because everyone can tell their own story, and each symbol can represent your individuality.” 

 Millie was photographed by Cass Bird for her debut Pandora campaign, which sees her posing in a black T-shirt and showing off a delicate silver bracelet. The photoshoot took place in her adopted hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, where she films her hit Netflix show Stranger Things. 

 A short film to accompany the images will also be released, in which the 15-year-old will share her personal connection to the pieces.  

 Stephen Fairchild, Pandora’s chief creative and brand officer, said the young star was the ideal fit for the company.

“Millie Bobby Brown is the perfect ambassador for the next generation of Pandora jewellery that empowers young women to express themselves. Not only an accomplished actor and making her presence as a voice of her generation known, she also brings a youthful and individual approach to jewellery that perfectly complements Pandora’s vision and creativity,” he commented.  

 Millie’s first Pandora editorial will be released in October. 

 The teenager is keeping busy with various projects following the release of the third season of Stranger Things last month. She’s just wrapped on Godzilla vs. Kong and is currently filming Enola Holmes alongside Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, and Helena Bonham Carter.

The hair and make-up team behind Stranger Things gave 250 perms to the cast of the series during production of season three.

Set in the summer of 1985, the science fiction hit features signature fashions and looks from the decade – including the once popular hairstyle.

“We had eight hairstylists help out the students, and they permed for weeks,” the show’s hairstylist Sarah Hindsgaul told U.S. InStyle.

She enlisted the help of Toni & Guy’s Academy in Atlanta, where the show is filmed, to help style the main castmembers and extras.

When it came to Natalia Dyer’s look, Hindsgaul made sure to add a big faux hair piece up top for extra body, recycling an item previously used by star Winona Ryder.

“Natalia’s piece is part of Winona’s old wig from season one that I cut up, because we like to reuse that stuff sometimes,” the expert added. “Suddenly, everyone was wearing little pieces of each other’s wigs that we started cutting up from past seasons.”

She also used an old roller set on Dyer’s hair and had to be mindful of the summer weather.

“I used a roller set, because she is the daughter of Karen Wheeler (Cara Buono) who probably taught her well in the self-grooming department,” said Hindsgaul. “I had the piece sitting on top because we were shooting in 100-degree weather and no matter what you do, that’s too hot and humid for hair to stay up.”

Season three of Stranger Things is due to begin streaming on Thursday.
