Heather Morris so convincingly plays ditzy Brittany on Glee, it’s hard to imagine that in real life she is an accomplished dancer who enjoys volunteering and knitting. Yes, knitting. Turns out the choreographer-cum-star is a serious multi-tasker: “I hate having downtime!” she admits in the February issue of Teen Vogue. And though she portrays an über self-conscious teenager on the hit show, in real life, Morris’s beauty routine is far more relaxed than that of your average Cheerio. How does she keep her flaxen do shiny? “I just wash it, end of story,” she reveals in the behind-the-scenes video below. Favorite products? The Flirt! brand ambassador is particularly loyal to the cosmetic line’s mascara. “I don’t need false lashes when I wear it,” she says. Another must have: ungoopy lip color. “Like most dancers, I love lip stains! We hate gloss because hair gets stuck in it.” To hear more about Heather’s laid-back philosophy on keeping her body and mind healthy (hint: exercise is paramount), check out the video below.
