Kate is a supporter of looking natural, so she prefers her makeup to be as minimal as possible. However, there are cosmetic products that the actress cannot do without, and that includes foundation. Winslet admitted that she uses different shades of foundation depending on the phase of her menstrual cycle.

“At the beginning of the cycle, my skin is more even. In the middle of the cycle, it becomes prone to redness, so I mix different shades,” the actress explained.

Blake Lively pays special attention to lighting.

It’s impossible to see Blake with poorly-done makeup because the actress pays special attention to the lighting she’ll be under. Blake always applies makeup under bright light that mimics sunlight. This way, she can be sure that the makeup will look perfect under any lighting conditions.

Finding a good product for styling your eyebrows can be challenging. But Ashley has a secret product that helps her fix unruly eyebrow hairs in no time. And it’s just a regular hair gel. According to the model, this product is much more effective and cost-efficient than traditional brow products.

Selena Gomez colors her eyelashes with tweezers.

Like it or not, the trend for clumped lashes continues to gain momentum. And Selena even has a life hack that helps her achieve that “spider legs” effect. To better apply mascara, the singer uses not only the usual mascara brush but also a pair of tweezers.

Margot Robbie applies 2 types of blush at once.

Margot Robbie’s makeup is not complete without blush, which gives the skin a fresh and rested look. To achieve the maximum effect, the star’s makeup artist uses 2 types of blush. Immediately after applying the base, they emphasize the “apples” on Margot’s cheeks with cream blush, and then, when the makeup is almost ready, they apply a little powder blush.

Adriana Lima makes her own avocado hair masks.

To maintain the beauty of her hair, Victoria’s Secret “Angel,” Adriana Lima, uses an avocado hair mask. The model mixes the fruit pulp with conditioner and applies this mixture to her hair once a week.

Charlize Theron uses emu oil for the same purpose.


Charlize regularly massages her hair with oil extracted from the subcutaneous fat of Australian emus. This natural remedy stimulates hair growth, making it thicker and healthier.

Gwen is a big fan of red lipstick. But, as it turns out, the singer never uses just one shade. She layers several products on top of each other: first matte textures, then glossy ones. By the way, Marilyn Monroe also used this life hack back in the day.

Isla Fisher curls her eyelashes with slightly heated curling tongs.

Before curling her eyelashes, Isla heats up the curler for a couple of seconds with a hot hair dryer. This simple trick provides a beautiful curl that is difficult to achieve with the usual method.

Eva Mendes adds bronzer to her moisturizer.

To make her skin appear to glow from within, Eva adds a couple of drops of bronzer to her moisturizer and applies the mixture to her face. This simple trick saves the actress on days when she doesn’t want to use a lot of makeup.

Jessica Alba has a plethora of beauty hacks in her arsenal, one of which she learned from makeup artist Chloe Morello. This trick can help speed up the makeup application process and can be done by anyone.

The technique involves applying creamy products all over the face in small dots, then blending her makeup with a sponge or brush after spraying the skin with a makeup setting spray. Starting with the lighter products, and finishing by blending the darkest ones.

Rich, dark shades of lipstick are an important part of Salma’s look. But before applying any makeup, the actress massages her lip line with eye cream. This secret weapon can smooth out even the tiniest wrinkles and prevents lipstick from smudging.

In addition, Hayek outlines her lips with a light-colored highlighter, as if she were using a lip liner. According to the actress, this technique helps achieve a sharper contour.

Salma also doesn’t forget about her body. The actress contours her legs using an illuminator (liquid highlighter), applying the product under her calf muscles and along her quadriceps. According to Salma, this not only gives the skin a shiny and polished look, but it also visually slims down the legs.

Amanda Seyfried sleeps with tape on her face.

In one interview, the actress admitted that she is not a fan of invasive cosmetic procedures. Instead, Amanda uses triangle-shaped adhesive tape to smooth out wrinkles, which she applies to her forehead every night.
