Beauty tips from celebrities

Either on the runway or the screen, most celebrities boast admirable beauty we all want to emulate. Believe or not, their beauty is not always a blessing from their genes or the magic effect of an airbrush on Photoshop. Their beauty is also due to certain products and practices. Like they say, it hurts to be beautiful. You have to know what product and technique will suit you best and commit to a beauty routine. Fortunately, some beautiful celebrities have share their secrets.

Gwyneth Paltrow, a classy actress renown for her beauty and eternal youth, confessed she is a fan of Bioderma’s micellar water and she says this cleansing solution is "the best make-up remover.” Accordingly, "it's unscented, doesn't dry your skin or sting, and gets rid of all your make-up with a few swipes. You're left with soft, clean skin." She added, "I use omega-3 oil. I love light oil on my skin. It's one of my favorite feelings in the world."

The academy-award winner Kate Winslet also gave away her beauty secret. "A good eye cream is really important when you are traveling, busy and stressed-that's when the dark puffy circles can get you."

Meanwhile, Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha shared her surprising style secret."My number-one beauty tip is to practice at home whatever you’re going to be wearing. Don’t just put something on because you think it's the look of the day or the season. Especially when everyone is saying there’s a look for the season, try it out and see if it really looks good on you and be good at it before you go out there wearing it.”

"My beauty tip is bronzer. Regardless of whether you're light-skinned or dark-skinned, wear bronzer. Put it on the periphery of the face, the décolletage, and the cheeks. It always makes you look like you just came from Ibiza! As for my fitness tip: Corsets!" said Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid, also known as Iman, a Somali-American fashion model, actress and entrepreneur. She is also a pioneer in the ethnic-cosmetics market.

Actress Rachel Bilson is another celebrity that relies on bronze. "I dust my cheeks and eyelids with bronzing powder for a natural glow."

Another member of the cult of the Bronzer is Eva Mendes. She said, "A shimmery bronzer is the perfect way to look alive. If you don't want to wear makeup, mix some with moisturizer. You'll look pretty but not made-up."

Arizona Muse, an American fashion model, also shared her beauty secrets: "My number-one beauty tip is to mix Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair with foundation. It just turns every foundation into the most sheer amazingness. For fitness, I do a lot of yoga. I love yoga. I think it’s so good for your mind and body, as well."

Carolyn Murphy is an American model and actress. In 1998, she was named VH1/Vogue’s “Model of the Year” and she was also one of the “Modern Muses” on the November 1999 millennium cover of American Vogue. Her popularity has been such that she represented Calvin Klein’s perfume “Contradiction.” Murphy also shared gave beauty advice to the women of the world. "My beauty secret is drinking a lot of water. I drink a lot of water and then I moisturise. Otherwise, I wish I did more fitness. I’m not a fanatic. I don’t think it’s very becoming for a woman to have a body like a man’s, which is super cut. I prefer to be a little more on the softer side, so I just keep it light with a lot of walking, yoga, and an occasional jog. But even that’s a lot of work!"

Actress America Ferrera also relied on water to boost her beauty. "Once I started drinking more water, my skin, hair and nails all flourished."

One of Charlie’s angels, Lucy Liu, mentioned she is a fan of Aquaphor. "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."

The beautiful actress Liv Tyler employs an interesting technique to make her skin look flawless. "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."
