Anna Kendrick has been in the spotlight for nearly 16 years, and over that time her appearance has changed dramatically. While Kendrick has always been stunning, before and after photos from years apart posted to the Instagram account @_celebrities_before_after_ showed just how far the 36-year-old has come with her beauty regime over her time as a celeb. She looks stunning!
Growing up in the spotlight can’t be easy, but Anna Kendrick made it look effortless as seen in the series of snaps that @_celebrities_before_after_ posted on April 13. While you can tell it is the same person, Kendrick had truly grown into her features, glowing with flawless skin and looking far more confident than before.

Fans were shocked by the pictures, but agreed that she looked equally as beautiful before and after. While some speculated at plastic surgery, most noted that natural weight loss was likely the biggest contributor to her changing face. “Loss of weight and something to the eye. But I think nothing more 😍 Then and now stunning,” one fan commented. Meanwhile, another wrote, “Natural glowup.”
Kendrick has really honed her makeup skills over the years, and it just goes to show how big of an impact confidence can make in your appearance. She was stunning before, but she’s even more gorgeous now–we need her skincare routine!
Anna Kendrick’s Beauty Routine, Complete With ‘Schmancy-Schmancy’ Lip Cream
An Academy Award and Tony Award nominee, Anna Kendrick is known for her roles in film (“Up in the Air,” “Pitch Perfect” and the “Twilight Saga” movies) and theater (“High Society”). She is also quite the Twitter star, issuing pithy pronouncements — “I’m so humble it’s crazy. I’m like the Kanye West of humility” — to her three million followers. She plays Cinderella in the musical film “Into the Woods,” which is nominated for a Golden Globe in the best motion picture, musical or comedy category. A native of Portland, Me., Ms. Kendrick, 29, lives in Los Angeles. BEE SHAPIRO
I do this AKMD foaming face wash, which no one has ever heard of, but it’s awesome if your skin is a bit oily. Then I do the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which is like a toner. I feel like I turn over a new layer of skin every time I use it. I always end up breaking out when I fly a lot, but I’ve realized the most important thing when traveling is being moisturized. So now I’m using the Kate Somerville Nourish moisturizer. I’m really into lip cream. I have this one by Hourglass; it’s an oil with this gold-tip applicator, and it’s schmancy-schmancy. When you get to the point that your lips are cracking, the price is worth it.
My sunscreen is Aveeno Smart Essentials moisturizer with SPF 30. I hate the way sunscreen smells. It always reminds me of being a kid and all sticky at the beach. This one just smells like lotion.
Oh, and if you’re not using Intuition razors, you’re wasting everybody’s time. It cuts your shower time in half. Whenever I hear someone is still using a separate shave gel (the Intuition has it in the razor), it’s like hearing they still use dial-up Internet.
At night, it’s pretty much the same stuff. Although, I just found the best wipes. You know how wipes make your skin feel tight and sticky, but you’re too lazy to actually go wash your face? Not this one. It’s by Koh Gen Do. Again, it’s not cheap, but so, so worth it.
I use Bobbi Brown foundation — the Long-Wear Even Finish one. I actually blend the 0 and the 3.25 shades together because that’s what my makeup artist did for “Into the Woods.” I would not have thought to blend two colors that aren’t side by side on the color spectrum, but it looks gorgeous.
I’ve started using Nars Contour Blush in Olympia. I was so scared of contour — you see girls on Instagram with that shiny, plastic war-paint look — but this one is so subtle. For mascara, I use Guerlain Maxi Lash. It’s a great mascara and all, but it smells really good, too. It seems silly, but for a product you use every day, it’s kind of a nice touch.
In my dreams, I have Keira Knightley’s eyebrows. But it’s just not in the cards for me, so I do what I can. I use this eyebrow liquid pen by this Japanese brand Suqqu. I found it when I was in England. It’s a game-changer: You never ever get that starting blob of eyebrow that you get with your regular pencil or powder or whatever. It’s impossible to mess up.
I’m not big on lip color, but I like to have a little bit of something. I just ordered a Jane Iredale Just Kissed lip and cheek stain. It doesn’t just give you that bee-stung thing for two seconds; it lasts for hours.
I like to buy a new fragrance for each film. I’ll go out in the city where I’m filming and snap it up. The one I have for “Into the Woods” is Terry de Gunzburg Flagrant Delice, which I bought in London. But the one I’m wearing now is Orange Flower and Lychee by Kiehl’s, which is from “Happy Christmas.” I was feeling nostalgic. That’s the thing about fragrance: Memory is so attached. I also love buying fragrance for special times in my life. Like maybe if I got engaged, I’d buy one.
At home, I’m using Oribe Shampoo and Masque for Beautiful Color. My hair isn’t colored right now, but I’m still feeling the repercussions from going blond for a film last year. For styling, I use the Oribe texturizing spray that everybody loves. I also use a Shu Uemura hair oil. I put it on before I blow-dry. I feel like hair oils help a lot.
I find getting my nails done the most tedious thing. I’m such a fidgety person; it’s like torture. Everybody loves massages; I don’t know what my problem is. I feel like I have to talk to the masseuses. Pretty soon, I’m asking for their grandma’s recipe for apple pie and pretending like I’m interested. Why? Besides, I’d rather do this face to face when their hands aren’t all over my n*-ked body. I do really like getting facials. I just got the most amazing one at Kate Somerville on Melrose. It’s, no joke, an oasis.
Diet and Fitness
I feel like 30 is just around the corner, and I’m reluctantly trying to take care of myself. My friend Aubrey Plaza has been trying to get me to be a grown-up and not eat the junk that I do. So now I’m taking Pure Barre and eating fancy cereal with almond milk for breakfast. The most disappointing part is how great I feel. I even like this Daily Greens juice called Purity. It tastes like you’re eating grass, but you feel so freaking good after it. I’m sure part of it is mental.
