10 Celebrity Beauty Tricks Every Woman Should Know November 03, 2015 13:00

Celebrities are constantly under pressure about their looks and regularly work with make-up artist, stylists and people in the fashion and beauty industry. So they pick up tips and learn how to maximise their beauty efforts, even when tight with time, on-the-go, or without all their beauty products immediately available. So watch out for their beauty tips: they are more practical (and cheaper) than you might expect.

1. Candice Swanepoel’s eyes: If you want to look a little more awake use a cream pencil on the inside of your eye, it opens up your eyes, says Candice. Put a shimmer in the corners…it makes it pop.

2. Taylor Swift’s red lips: 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.

3. Isla Fisher’s gorgeous eyelashes: To make lashes curl better, take a hair dryer to your eyelash curler for one or two seconds before using it.

4. Sandra Bullock de-puff (it works!): Preparation H.  It might sound odd, but  putting butt cream under my eyes is one of my best beauty secrets, and stops me from getting lines.

5. Lucy Liu’s freshness secret: When I was shooting a movie in Montreal, it was freezing. If you take a little bit of Aquaphor and dab it on your face, it keeps your skin looking fresh. I dubbed it Aqua For Everything.

7. Liv Tyler’s rosy skin: 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.
