15. Emma Roberts- Use A Beauty Blender
The Beauty Blender sponge has exploded in the last couple years and beauty addicts everywhere have raved about the effectiveness of applying foundation using this applicator.

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!” she gushed.
14. Lauren Conrad- Lighten Your Eye Cream
There’s nothing worse than wearing heavy makeup in the summer and feeling it melt off your face in the midst of a humid afternoon. Lauren Conrad has the perfect solution for this dilemma that will help your heavy under eye concealer feel much lighter and refreshing. “I like to dilute my cover-up with a little eye cream during the warmer months,” she claims. “It makes this traditionally heavier makeup a bit lighter and sheerer, which is ideal for summer.”
13. Ellen Pompeo- Blend Your Smokey Eye Naturally
Creating the perfect smokey eye definitely takes a lot of practice and a few inevitable failed attempts. It requires a specific amount of blending and a skilled hand for flawless application. How do the stars get it right every single time? Ellen Pompeo let InStyle in on her little secret: “moisturize the area first, so when you line the lid with a pencil it will smudge naturally.”
12. Scarlett Johansson- Start With A Matte Base
Ever wonder how Scarlett Johansson gets her glowing complexion? She told InStyle that she’s careful with the order she applies products to ensure she begins with a matte-finish base and adds shimmery products last.

11. Taylor Swift- Blot Your Lipstick
Music icon Taylor Swift let us in on her secret to perfecting a seriously bold red pout. “There are tricks I’ve learned from makeup artists on shoots,” she reveals. “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.” No wonder Taylor even mentions her red lipstick in her song lyrics with an amazing tip like this!
10. Ilsa Fisher- Heat Your Eyelash Curler
Beauty experts have sworn by this tip for years, but after Confessions of a Shopaholic star admitted she does this herself, we definitely had to give it a shot! Fisher admitted she heats her eyelash curler for 1 or 2 seconds with a blow dryer before using it. This system is synonymous to that of a heated curling iron that you would use on your hair. It keeps your lash curl strong and ensures it lasts all day.
9. Rachel Bilson- Dust Bronzer All Over Your Face
Bronzer is one of those beauty products that can undeniably be used for multi-purposes and can be used all over the face. The O.C. star Rachel Bilson always had the perfect glowing complexion on the show and she has admitted she dusts bronzer on both her cheeks and eyelids to keep her look consistent and to achieve a sun kissed bronze effect.
8. Blake Lively- Use Household Products As Natural Hair Masks
Using household products as part of a natural beauty regime has been pushed on us by beauty experts everywhere, but do any of these products actually work? Blake Lively confessed a family secret to achieve shiny, healthy hair to the website Brydie and it involves products you could find your refrigerator! “My mom taught me this really great beauty tip. She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle,” Lively revealed.
7. Gwyneth Paltrow- Try Oil Pulling
Staying in the realm of natural products, Gwyneth Paltrow and many other stars and health experts have recommended oil pulling to not only whiten your teeth but improve your overall oral health as well! The process involves swishing coconut oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes, which initially seems like an unbearably long time, but becomes much easier the more times you do it. The sparkling pearly white results are absolutely worth it according to Paltrow.
6. Candice Swanepoel- Use A Nude Coloured Eyeliner
Candice Swanepoel looks flawless when she wears bare minimum on her face and even when she is wearing no makeup at all! Her glittering blue eyes always catch our attention and she revealed one of her favourite beauty tips to keep her baby blues looking wide and alert. “If you want to look a little more awake use a cream pencil on the inside of your eye, it opens up your eyes. Put a shimmer in the corners … it makes it pop,” she instructed.
5. America Ferrera- Drink More Water
This tip may seem obvious, but a gentle reminder to drink more water can create so many benefits in your beauty routine! Health experts recommend drinking eight 8-ounce glasses per day or approximately 2 litres (half a gallon). America Ferrera swears by this practice to boost the natural health of your body. “Once I started drinking more water, my skin, hair and nails all flourished,” she claimed.
4. Mila Kunis- Always Wash Your Face
Another seemingly obvious beauty tip, but one that we often find ourselves slipping on is to always wash your face every night, as Mila Kunis advises. This along with other nighttime beauty recommendations, Mila stated, “Wash your face before you go to bed. And double your pillowcases. I learned that early. That and change them regularly.” No one wants breakouts that could be easily avoided by following these tips that Mila suggested!
3. Kristin Davis- Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Sex and The City star Kristin Davis has admitted from experience that wearing sunscreen everyday is one of the greatest beauty tips that could be recommended! Although in your younger years it may not seem like an issue, premature wrinkles and sun damage are problems that pop up with age can easily be prevented when young. “I’ve done a lot of damage to my skin in the past, which makes me appreciate a great sunscreen now, ” Kristin admits, along with recommending her go-to sunscreen Ahava All-In-One. Other easy ways to ensure you’re wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is to select a foundation or tinted moisturizer with a high SPF- that way you’re protecting your skin without having to add an extra step into your morning routine.
2. Kylie Jenner- Don’t Forget To Protect Your Hands
Although being advised to wear sunscreen is a tip we’ve heard from various sources to stay looking young, one area we don’t always think about is the effects of the sun on our hands. In an interview with The Telegraph UK, Jenner revealed that her sister Khloe is constantly reminding her to wear sunscreen on her hands to protect from sun damage. Many dermatologists have backed this claim and have stated that hands are often the easiest giveaway for how old someone is, even if their face is completely wrinkle free!
1. Demi Moore- Always Moisturize
An oldie but a goodie in our books is Demi Moore’s tip to always moisturize your skin before bed and in the morning! “I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. No matter how late it is, when I get home, I take the time to clean and moisturize my face. I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup,” the 54-year-old actress advised. By ensuring your skin is sufficiently hydrated, your makeup will not only apply much smoother but you’re also nourishing your skin and keeping it healthy.
