my fave star BEAUTY TIPS


Smile Often
'A woman is most beautiful when she smiles'. 'The most valuable tip I have learned is always use a skin moisturiser.' - Beyonce.

Invest in eye cream
'A good eye cream is really important when you are travelling, busy and stressed - that is when the dark puffy circles can get you.' - Kate Winslet

Wash you face even if you are tired
'Don't go a full day or night without washing your face. You have to get all the dirt and makeup out of your pores.' - Mary J. Blige

Reconsider oil
'I use omega 3 oil. I love light oil on my skin. It's one of my favourite feelings in the world.' - Gwyneth Paltrow

Be a water baby
'Once I started drinking more water, my skin, hair and nails all flourished.' - America Ferrera

Get Rosy
'After applying foundation and a little blush, dust your face with translucent powder, then mist skin with a rosewater spray and lay a Kleenex over for a second. It makes your face seem flawless in a way that looks as if you aren't wearing any makeup.' - Liv Tyler

Prep your eyelids
'For a smoky eye, moisturise the area first, so when you line the lid with a pencil it will smudge naturally.' - Ellen Pompeo

Fix smudges easily
'Apply loose powder on top of the foundation under your eyes, so if a little shadow spills, it's easier to wipe off.' -Katherine McPhee

Blow dry your eyelashes
'To make lashes curl better, take a hair dryer to your eyelash curler for one or two seconds before using it.' - Isla Fisher

Get dewy lids
'If you use petroleum jelly on your lids, it gives you a dewy, angelic look.' - Freida Pinto

Blend your own shades
'I love to layer tons of different shades to create new colors. I start with matte lipstick that's really dry then I put a more creamy, moist lipstick on my top. And my trick for not getting it on my teeth? Be really careful!' - Gwen Stefani

Wipe off your lips
'To make lips look naturally pink, I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss.' - Halle Berry

Spritz your outfit
'I love walking into a closet and smelling lingering perfume, so I always spray my clothes. And at the end of the bottle, when the atomiser no longer reaches the tiny little dribble that is left, I unscrew the top and pour the remainder onto a t-shirt or dress.' - Sarah Jessica Parker

Master the art of smiling
'An actress friend of mine shared a great trick. She told me to stick my tongue behind my teeth when I smile to keep from over-smiling. If you smile without doing it, sometimes your gums show a little too much. It's an actor's trick!' - Jessica Chastain

Tone down your concealer
'Use concealer that's two shades lighter than your actual skin tone and dot it under your eyes. It draws attention to your eyes and makes you look refreshed—which is great when you're extra tired or have traveled a lot.' - AnnaLynne McCord

Use a light hand
'My best beauty secret is simple: Have the right palette and the right colors and remember, you need so much less makeup than you think.' - Jessalyn Gilsig

Be yourself
I'm a really smiley person, so I've just learned when I'm doing my own makeup, I have to make sure it's smile ready and not too heavy. - Rosario Dawson
