Top 10 Beauty Secrets We Learned from Celebs

If you want to up your beauty game, listen closely. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Beauty Secrets We Learned from Celebs.

For this list, we’re looking at the best and easiest makeup and skincare tips that our favorite stars have shared.

#10: Use Eyeshadow as Highlight

In the 2010s, there’s one makeup item that has risen above the rest in popularity and has become an instant must-have. Highlight is everywhere, from dewy and subtle to blindingly bright. But what is highlight really? If we’re talking powder, it’s really just a shimmery substance in a color that matches or complements your skin tone. So, if you don’t want to shell out for the latest release from Becca, try Zendaya’s tip and shop your own collection by using an eyeshadow instead. The results are amazing!

#9: Don't Over Pluck

Since the ‘90s and early aughts when over-plucked brows reigned supreme, styles have been getting fuller and fuller. The problem is, many people who played into the trend back then, will never get their brows back to their former glory. Supermodel Natalia Vodianova learned this tip from a young age, when her grandmother saw her plucking her eyebrows in front of the mirror. Vodianova recalls, “She said if I plucked them too much, I would regret it for the rest of my life.” And you know what, she was probably right! Who knows if her career would have taken off without those full and fluffy brows.

#8: Scrub Your Lips

Considering how popular matte lips have been in the 2010s, there has been no better time to whip your lips into shape. Throwing on an ultra-drying liquid lip over already chapped lips is not going to look good, so it’s essential to prime them and make them as smooth as possible. You don’t need any fancy or expensive products to do a little at-home exfoliating- lip scrubs are easy to DIY with just a few simple ingredients that we can pretty much guarantee you already have in your kitchen.

#7: Blot Your Lipstick

While bold matte lips have definitely been trending in the 2010s, in 2018 it’s clear that a slightly more natural look is on the rise. And the best part is- you don’t have to toss all the products you spent your hard-earned cash on in order to achieve it. You can turn any lip product into more of a stain by simply applying it with your fingers just like Suki Waterhouse, Kendall Jenner and Jordyn Woods do. The end result is effortless and chic and will fare much better through dinner and drinks.

#6: Don't Pick Your Skin

Actress Zoë Saldana shared an essential beauty tip with People magazine that we all definitely know, but probably have a hard time sticking to. When asked what the best skincare tip was that she had ever learned from a dermatologist, Saldana gave an answer that doesn’t require investing in any expensive skin care products. Just leave your skin alone! “Stop picking!” she says, “In my 20s I had a dermatologist warn me of the damage I could do to my skin.” Unfortunately, we all know this is easier said than done!

#5: Use Lipstick as Blush

Considering how much travel celebs do, it should come as no surprise that many of their best tips involve a little product multitasking. Everyone from Drew Barrymore to Emily Ratajkowski has recommended this tip, which involves using your lipstick to add a flush to your cheeks. Not only does it help you avoid buying more products, but it also creates a cohesive look if you’re using it as both a lip stain and a blush. Some colors work better for this than others, so stick to rosy or berry shades depending on your complexion.

#4: Give Yourself a Face Massage

If you’ve ever gone for a facial, you know that getting a little facial massage is often part of the experience. What many people don’t realize though is that they can get the very same benefits at home. The popularity of tools like facial rollers has been skyrocketing lately, and for good reason. Massaging the skin and muscles of your face relieves tension and stress, both of which can contribute to wrinkles. It also increases the circulation to those areas and can even give you a mini facelift in a totally natural way.

#3: Try Some Face Masks

The trend that became an Instagram sensation is officially going mainstream. Masking is probably the skincare step that is getting the most traction lately, be it with sheet masks, clay masks or even DIY masks that you make at home. No matter what your skin ailment is, be it oiliness, acne, dryness or anti-aging, there’s definitely a mask out there for you. There are plenty of inexpensive ones to choose from, and even higher-end brands make ones that are worth the splurge. Not to mention, think of the cute selfies you’ll be able to take.

#2: Embrace Oil

For many years, most people would balk at the idea of putting oil on their face- especially if they were used to dealing with acne and oily skin. Wouldn’t it just make your problems worse? Recently though, the beauty community and celebrities alike have learned how many benefits there are to incorporating various oils into your skincare routine. Whether you’re mixing it into your foundation for a dewier glow or throwing it on top of your moisturizer at the end of the night, there are countless benefits to leaving your fear of oil behind.

#1: Smile!

This tip requires no products, no cash and can be accomplished in a split second. It’s annoying when random dudes tell us to smile on the street, but when Queen Bey says it, you know we’re going to listen. When asked for a beauty tip, Beyoncé responded, "A woman is most beautiful when she smiles. Other than that, the most valuable tip I've learned is always use a skin moisturizer!" It’s simple advice, but it’s definitely true. Oh, and the moisturizer part is good to remember too!
