• Celebrities aren't necessarily fountains of knowledge and wisdom, but when it comes to beauty, being in the biz means you've definitely learned a thing or two about getting pretty. Granted, they aren't always right, but when they are, we listen.

    Emma Stone
    In typical cheeky, self-deprecating fashion, Emma shared that being "allergic to everything" led her to start using olive oil to moisturize her skin rather than store-bought products.

  • Charlize Theron
    Charlize once revealed that she regularly changes up her skin care routine so that her skin doesn't get too used to one product in particular.

  • Kate Moss
    Kate loves a false lash look, but she doesn't love false lashes. She says the secret to getting the dramatic effect without the falsies is "curling, and then tons and tons and tons of mascara."

  • Liv Tyler
    Liv picked up one seriously genius beauty trick on the set of "Stealing Beauty" almost twenty years ago. She divulged, "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 it for a second. It makes your face seem flawless in a way that looks like you aren't wearing makeup."

  • Eva Mendes
    Eva said of the secret to maintaining her enviable mane, "I like to condition my hair overnight. Put it all over your hair before you go to sleep and leave it in a shower cap until morning. Then rinse and voilà."

  • Miranda Kerr
    Don't have an eyelash curler on hand? Make like Miranda and use a spoon. Warm the kitchen utensil using hot water, then use your thumb to bend your lashes against the edge of the spoon. It sounds weird, but it actually works!

  • Zoe Saldana
    Rather than spring for a fancy cleansing accessory like a Clarisonic, Zoe says her go-to face-washing technique involves "small white towels" that she buys in bulk from Costco for exfoliating.

  • Lauren Conrad
    Lauren dispenses tons of beauty wisdom, but we're partial to her advice against blowdrying hair in the steamy bathroom right after you've showered—the humidity will only make your hair frizzier.

  • Halle Berry
    Wiping your lipstick off may seem counterproductive, but that's exactly what Halle does to make her lips look naturally stained. She says, "I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss." It's a genius way to get a flushed lip look without extra products.

  • Taylor Swift
    Taylor tames her already naturally curly hair with… a curling iron? She says that when her hair looks like a mess in the morning, she wraps it around the barrel of a curling iron to keep her curls in check.
