The creamy complexion of Camilla Belle, Blake Lively’s dreamy, tousled hair, Eva Longoria’s stunning lashes, the sweet freckled glow of Erin Heatherton and Gwen Stefani’s fiery pout… Our star-based wish list of irresistible looks is long. Though the stars have personal stylists to create their stunning looks and we just have ourselves, at GLOSSYBOX Mag, we always have the inside scoop. Here are our five best beauty secrets from the stars.
1. Creamy complexion à la Camilla Belle
We’ll admit, a complexion this amazing is about 70% good genes – and yet, there are still a few things we can do to get our skin a little closer to flawless. As boring as it sounds, pretty skin begins with properly washing your face. Always remove your makeup before you go to bed and be sure to take care of your skin both in the mornings and at night. The type of product you should use depends on your skin type. (If you don’t already know your skin type, you can find out at various cosmetic studios or even in good department stores.) A face massage can help increase circulation in your face and make your skin look plumper. The Skincare Cleansing Massage Brush from Shiseido, $25.00 kills two birds with one stone!
2. Wild and Reckless Hair à la Blake Lively
What we wouldn’t do for a head of hair like this… It seems as though celebrities are always blessed with enviable locks. But at the end of the day, is it really just a question of having the right hair care? Yes, say top celebrity stylists. Regular trips to the hair salon are absolutely necessary, but this Gossip Girl knows how to keep up keep her perfectly tousled hair. Before she heads to a filming session, she twists her hair into a ballerina knot and lets it sit. After she gets to the set and does her makeup, she lets down her hair – and voila! She’s got a perfect head of wavy, sexy hair. To style, just set with a shine spray, such as Luminous Shine Spray from Alterna, $22.00.
3. Stunning Lashes à la Eva Longoria
Those big, beautiful Bambi eyes… No wonder everyone is always blown away by Longoria’s intensive look. We can’t all be born with such luxurious, long lashes, but even Eva’s eyes are enhanced by outside help. Get the look with rows of full fake lashes or with individual lashes which you can easily set in between your natural lashes, such as the 30 Lash set from MAC, $16.00.
4. Glowingly Fresh à la Erin Heatherton
Whether it’s from long hours at the beach or the fact that dates Hollywood’s hotties, this sweet Victoria’s Secret model is a cut above the rest. We’re getting our own glow from the Intense Bronze Self Tanning Tint from Clarins, $34.00. Just apply a handful and let the summer shine on.
5. Kissable à la Gwen Stefani
Red lips are meant to be kissed… Do you think this goes through Gavin Rossdale’s head at least ten times a day? We’re going to go all in on this one and say: absolutely! He’s married, after all, to one of the premier style icons, stylish singer Gwen Stefani. Her signature look (besides bleached blonde hair) is a bright red, kissable mouth. She manages to make the look work even with her coolest ensembles. A mouth this luscious is super easy to style with Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick Compact in Poppy Red from Guerlain, $48.00.
