Best Celebrity Beauty Secrets!Published on January 23, 2017. Updated October 2, 2019
Some celebrities look stunning no matter what they do and it doesn’t always take a team of stylists, plastic surgeons or makeup artists to help them achieve it! We have compiled a list of the 15 best celebrity beauty secrets! While some of these tips may seem like a bit much, others are perfect for those with sensitive skin – and for those of us on a budget!
15. Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough has the best hair advice! “My hair isn’t naturally very long. In fact, it only comes to my collarbone. That’s why I always wear 6-inch clip-in extensions. I cannot go anywhere without them! As for hair care, my sister owns three Aveda concept salons in Nashville, so she turned me on to Aveda shampoos and conditioners. I also love Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray,” Hough said.
14. Carrie Underwood
If you want Carrie Underwood’s luscious lashes, be prepared to buy a lot of mascara! “Well, I will admit that I use falsies every once in a while because they’re fun! But I do have a little kit that’s full of mascara. At any given moment I will have four or five different formulas on my lashes. I don’t think there is one that does all I need it to do, so I’ll grab a volumizing one to make them fat, then a lengthening one to make them longer, and so on,” the country singer said.
13. Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani likes to mix lipstick shades together to get the perfect hue! “I love to layer tons of different shades to create new colors,” she revealed. “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!”
12. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian knows exactly how to make her lips look full, thanks to her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic! “My upper lip is a bit thinner than my lower one, so Mario showed me how to use liner and gloss to even them out,” the reality TV star said.
11. Isla Fisher
Getting Isla Fisher’s long, curly eyelashes is simple! “To make lashes curl better, take a hair dryer to your eyelash curler for one or two seconds before using it,” she advises. Seems like a good idea to us!
10. Liv Tyler
If you want Liv Tyler’s flawless skin, follow her advice! “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,” she says. “It makes your face seem flawless in a way that looks as if you aren’t wearing any makeup.”
9. Sarah Jessica Parker
When it comes to perfume, Sarah Jessica Parker knows what she is talking about! “I’ve learned a thing or two about [perfume] application,” she says. “We apply a fragrance, and then we rip it apart by rubbing our wrists together. The key is to apply it and just let it sit for awhile. No rubbing.”
8. Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain knows how to smile for the cameras and, by following her advice, you will too! “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!”
7. AnnaLynne McCord
If you want to a fresh look then AnnaLynne McCord from “90210” is your go-to person! “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.”
6. Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson has amazing eyes and her beauty secret is simple: “I don’t use a real eye shadow brush – I just use the spongy brush that comes in the package. It fits nicely underneath my eye and creates a nice, everyday cat eye. I blend, add a little black eyeliner on the inside and I’m done,” the singer/actress said.
5. Rachel Bilson
Rachel Bilson recently told Cosmopolitan magazine that she turns to Vaseline to remove her makeup. “It just works really well – especially when you’re removing eye makeup – and it’s gentle on my skin.” Good to know!
4. Emma Stone
Emma Stone recently said in an interview that her allergies prevent her from putting many products on her skin, so she uses natural grapeseed oil! “I just use [it] on my face as a moisturizer,” she reveals. “After the shower, I pat it on, and then I’ll use it throughout the day and at night.”
3. Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood told Cosmopolitan that she uses olive oil-based products in her beauty regimen. She uses it to take off her makeup at night and then leaves it on as a moisturizer, which is great for sensitive skin.
2. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba’s lash curler is her best beauty friend! “You should always curl your lashes. I usually don’t use mascara that much unless I’m looking really tired and puffy-eyed. I just curl my eyelashes and brush a little mascara on the tips,” the actress said.
1. Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner ensures that her skin looks healthy and youthful by using sunblock! “My mom has always been a big believer in sunblock, and now I use Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunblock lotion on myself and my daughters. I like that it contains naturally sourced minerals and a strong SPF,” Garner said. That explains why she looks so young!
