The Beauty Lessons we Learned from Ab-Fab!

London’s most stylish ladies are, naturally, fashion icons. But what about when it comes to beauty?  With their big screen debut happening tomorrow, here are the laws of beauty according to Patsy and Edina.

  • On a diet? Stick to vodka

Patsy hasn’t actually eaten since some time in the 60s, sustaining herself on alcohol and cigarettes. Her favourite tipple, vodka, comes in at 69 calories per measure. It’s a dieters dream – but you will still suffer the effects of a hangover!

  • Go hard or go home

“Quick shower, quick shower… wash and go. Sandpaper, exfoliate, cellulite breakdown, tone and perm, auto-bronzer and birch twigs! Shall I soap? No, no soap.”

Eddy is anything but half- hearted when it comes to her morning beauty regime, if there’s a chance it works, she’ll try it. Well they do say no pain, no gain!

  • A beehive is your best friend

A well sculpted beehive can hide all manner of sins, not to mention withstand Patsy-style partying.  The up-do doubles as a convenient place to store you cigarettes - multi-tasking at its best.

  • When in LA, anything goes

“Eddy look, can I get away with this mouth?”

“Only in LA, darling.”

If you want to experiment with your beauty look Los Angeles is the city to do it, apparently. Garish lipstick, heaps of bronzer and a rainbow of eye-shadows, you can do no wrong.

  • Wear Chanel No 5 – always

“Sweetie, what are you drinking?”

“Oh this? Chanel No 5.”

Chanel No 5 is the best-selling perfume in the world, but it isn’t just Marilyn boosting sales. Patsy knows the best way to a long-lasting scent is to drink it!

OK, so we don’t actually recommend you follow ANY of Eddy and Patsy’s beauty rules, but we can’t wait to see the new Ab-Fab movie!
