While most celebs get plenty of help from the best dermatologists and makeup artists, they also have their own cheap life hacks. Whether they inherited these tricks from mothers and grandmothers or discovered these tips on their own, celebs trust them enough to recommend them.
Check out some of the simplest celebrity beauty hacks you can try yourself. With cheap and natural ingredients, these tricks can save you money and take your beauty routine to the next level.
Queen Bey doesn’t like to talk about her beauty regimen, but Ashley Weatherford, her makeup artist, spilled one of her secrets to The Cut. Instead of buying the most expensive face creams available, Beyoncé uses a little eye cream all over her face.
“I like to use eye creams around the face. I also like to use face creams on the body,” Weatherford explained.
The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” star likes a natural approach when it comes to skincare. She revealed one of the best celebrity beauty hacks to Elle UK. Instead of using a store-bought toner, the actress prefers apple cider vinegar. “If your skin is problematic or you’re having a lot of breakouts, it’s really healing. It’s a little bit stinky but if you’re not sleeping over at your boyfriend’s it’s really effective!” Johansson explained.
She’s always had gorgeous hair, and Blake Lively keeps it shiny using a life hack she was taught by her mother. “She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle,” Lively told Byrdie.com.
The “Extant” actress has a glowing complexion, and it’s thanks to one of the most interesting celebrity beauty hacks: ground coffee, according to Cosmopolitan. Adding it to her body wash turns it into a great body scrub, and by keeping her pores clean, Berry ends up with smooth skin, while the caffeine also promotes blood flow.
Keeping her eyelashes in top shape and her skin hydrated overnight is easy for Jennifer Aniston, who swears by a simply beauty life hack. “Put Vaseline on your eyes at night—all over. It helps condition your lashes. My mom taught me that,” Aniston told Redbook magazine.
Having sensitive skin and dealing with multiple allergies has taught Emma Stone to always look for the natural solution, and she uncovered one of the best celebrity beauty hacks. “I just use natural grapeseed oil from the grocery store on my face as moisturizer. After the shower, I pat it on, and then I'll use it throughout the day and at night. I pretty much smell like a grape all the time,” Stone explained in a Style.com interview.
Even thought her latest album may have been a disappointment sales-wise, Mariah Carey is still looking gorgeous. According to Cosmopolitan, the secret to her plump lips is a natural ingredient she adds to her lip gloss. By mixing mint extract in it, the singer gets increased blood flow and a beautiful glow on her lips.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star shared one of her hair mask recipes with Chica magazine, and it sounds like one of the most useful celebrity beauty hacks. She uses avocado to create a natural hair mask. “Overripe avocados are perfect. You mash them up with a little olive oil, and let the mixture sit on your hair for 30 minutes. It makes me hungry, so I usually end up rinsing it out too soon,” Saldana explained.
While Jennifer Aniston leaves the Vaseline on her eyes overnight, “Heart of Dixie” star Rachel Bilson uses it as a makeup remover. “It just works really well – especially when you’re removing eye makeup - and it’s gentle on my skin,” the actress told Cosmopolitan.
Stunning both as a redhead and as a blonde, Nicole Kidman also shared two of the best celebrity beauty hacks with MSN.com. “If you’ve got red hair, try washing it in cranberry juice and if you’re blonde, a champagne rinse can work wonders,” Kidman explained.
