Stars Spill Their Top Beauty Tips and Tricks

There doesn’t seem to be an end to the countless beautiful faces in Hollywood. Most of time, people have this notion that these actresses go to the extreme to remain glowing and youthful. In reality, their beauty tips don’t generally break the bank, but for certain cases, there are always dupes or alternatives that are affordable for everyone.

So here are some beauty tips that famous Hollywood celebrities swear by.

1. Kate Winslet


Her beauty tip:

“A good eye cream is really important when you are traveling, busy, and stressed, that’s when the dark puffy circles can get you.”

Eye cream is something most women neglect. The skin under our eyes happens to be a very sensitive area and is prone to sagging because it is very thin. Other issues include puffiness, dryness, and even wrinkles. So to combat against that, it’s important to find an eye cream that can combat or prevent them from happening.

According to the majority, these are are the best eye creams in the market:  Shiseido Future Solution LX Eye and Lip Contour Regenerating Cream ($130), Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($47), Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream ($34), Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller($22.99)

2. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Her beauty tip:

“There are tricks I’ve learned from makeup artists on shoots. They put on the red lipstick, then blot it with a tissue, then they put powder over the tissue and sort of press it onto your lips. Then re-apply. It turns it into a stain that lasts much longer.”

Pop star Taylor Swift is known for her signature red lips. She has also been known for using MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick or NARS Dragon Girl Lip pencil. But in order to make this last longer, Swift got a cue from her makeup artist to apply tissue over a red lip and dab powder over the other side. This type of trick creates an even more striking matte effect to it.

3. Isla Fisher


Her beauty tip:

“To make lashes curl better, take a hair dryer to your eyelash curler for one or two seconds before using it.”

The always youthful-looking Isla Fisher uses her eyes to create a brighter and more wide-awake look. Before applying mascara, it is very important to use an eyelash curler first. Like any other curling products, you will have more chances of having a look that lasts longer when you heat it. Some lash curlers are made to be self heating, just like the Japonesque Heated Mini Lash Curler and the Ardell Heated Lash curler. Other than that, you can save money by placing your lash curler under a blow dryer until it’s heated.

4. Emma Roberts


Her beauty tip:

“I use the BeautyBlender, that pink sponge. It’s my favorite thing. You have to get it wet, put it under warm water and then squeeze it out really well and then it just makes your foundation go on really dewy and nice. I love it!”

Anyone who loves makeup knows about beauty blenders. It is a cult favorite for a very good reason too! The beauty blender has long been used as blending in foundation without streaking, just as most brushes tend to do. The beauty blender can also be used with concealer, blending in cream contour or highlights, and baking (another makeup trend) as well.

The beauty blender is sold at an average price of $20 everywhere. For many, that could be a huge price to pay for just a makeup tool, so a drugstore alternative to what Emma Roberts is using is Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge, which is priced at $6 to $7.95. Many makeup aficionados have gone on to say that the Miracle Complexion sponge is even better than the beauty blender! Seeing that it comes with fair price, it should be about time to check it out.

5. Iman


Her beauty tip:

“Every woman—even women of color—should wear a blush bronzer. Not a self-tanner bronzer!”

Model and fashion icon Iman may already be blessed with that beautiful and naturally glowing dark skin. But she strongly advises people to use tanning products. The primary downside with using self tanners is that it can sometimes look fake if overdone and has a tendency to cake in all the wrong places. So as an alternative, you can sticky by Iman’s advise and go for something that looks more natural such as bronzers or blushes. Some of the most popular bronzers or natural-looking blushes out there include Benefits Hoola Bronzing Powder ($29), Rimmel Natural Bronzer ($4.07), and Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso ($7.50)
