16 Celebrity Beauty Secrets That Sound at First Glance Like Sheer Madness. But They Actually Work

6 months ago

Celebrities typically approach their preparation for public events with great care. They diligently attend to their skin and hair, engage in exercise routines, and meticulously select their outfits. Each of them possesses their own set of undisclosed techniques to ensure they appear flawless in any circumstance. We’ve uncovered the beauty secrets employed by these stars, and many of these can be readily applied within the confines of one’s home.

Coca-Cola hair wash

While some people believe that their hair looks its best when freshly cleaned and styled, Suki Waterhouse holds a different perspective. According to Waterhouse, she occasionally employs Coca-Cola as a hair rinse.

She expressed, “I don’t like my hair when it’s washed — it’s fine and limp — but Coca-Cola makes it tousled like I’ve gone through the Amazon or something.” It seems this unconventional method is proving effective for the celebrity.

Moisturizing cream without oils

Actress Anna Kendrick always moisturizes her skin before red carpet appearances. She says that the cream shouldn’t contain oils. Otherwise, the face will look greasy, not shiny in the photos.

Tape and braids

Not all celebrities get surgeries to lift their faces. Some do it themselves or by asking a hairdresser. For example, Naomi Campbell uses special tape. But you should know that you can’t use this method very often because there is a risk of deforming the skin and achieving the opposite effect.

Another celebrity that learned to lift her face in non-invasive ways is Barbra Streisand. She lifts her face with thin braids. They are made from hair that is on the same level as the eyebrows and then tied on the back of the head. And then you style the hair the way you need.

Ear contouring

Before important events, celebrities and stylists can’t make mistakes in foundation and face contouring. But it’s important to apply the product not only on the face and neck but also on the ears. Cameras watch their every move, and the smallest mistakes will go viral the next day. Ear sculpturing is a significant makeup step. Check out Kylie Jenner, for example.

Dermaplaning is another procedure to prepare the skin for makeup. It’s cleansing the skin with a special device like a razor. It’s used to remove dead skin cells, along with (peach fuzz) giving clients an immediate luminous glow. This is what Cardi B does.

Sunscreen contouring

When contouring became trendy, there was a huge splash on the beauty product market. The palettes, needed for it, were selling like hotcakes. And Beyoncé’s makeup artist uses a completely different method, contouring her face with sunscreen. First, 15 or 20 SPF is applied on the entire skin, and 50-80 is added around the eyes, the nose, and on the chin. This is both makeup and sun protection.

Acrylic toenails

When Ashley Graham wears open shoes during events, she uses acrylic toenails. She does it to keep her nail shape square. Amber Rose once shared this tip with her.

Dry shampoo for sweat stains

Stars are ordinary people like us. They also sweat and become dirty. So, to avoid awkward situations, they use life hacks. For example, David Beckham’s stylist applies dry shampoo in the middle of his back. This is why, even when he is hot, there are no wet stains on his clothes.

Making lips look fuller

The actress from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Lisa Rinna has full lips, and she started experimenting with them at the age of 24. And in order not to bite them, she uses lipsticks, and she has lots of them. Another way to make them fuller is to rub cinnamon on them.

Washing hair with cranberry juice

In one of the interviews, actress Nicole Kidman said that when she had red hair, she often used a berry mask. She used cranberry juice that seals hair cuticles, making them soft and shiny.

Fennel tea

To make the outfits look perfect and not cause any discomfort, you should be in good shape. Diet expert Rachel Beller recommends her clients, for example, Laura Dern, to drink fennel tea 5 days before an important event. It prevents bloating.

Cut tights

To make a dress or a skirt look good in motion rather than not, celebrity stylist Cassey Sawhill shares a simple recommendation. Cut off the legs of your tights and wear them like shorts. The dress or skirt fabric will not stick and move easily. This is especially important if you are wearing light silk dresses.

Brushing teeth with turmeric


The actress from Safe Heaven has a gorgeous smile, and aside from visiting a dentist, there’s another habit behind it. Julianne Hough brushes her teeth with turmeric, like with toothpaste, and then washes it off. Even though turmeric is yellow, the enamel remains white.

Another tip from stars’ stylists is shapewear. And it’s not used to hide extra pounds, but to make clothes beautifully slide on the body. Here are some stars that wear it: Karlie Kloss, Padma Lakshmi, Katy Perry, Rita Ora, and others.

Solutions for smooth hair

To make your hair look smooth and shiny, celebrity stylists recommend using oils and serums. The Jenner and Hadid sisters do it. But you should also apply the product correctly — rub it in your palms to heat it and get into the hair structure deeper.

And Cardi B recently surprised her subscribers when she told that she used oil broth to make her hair smooth.

Ice baths for a beautiful skin tone

Kate Hudson is another celebrity who is willing to go to great lengths to achieve beautiful skin. She has a skincare trick that involves subjecting her face to an intense cold sensation. The actress shared with Redbook that she picked up this tip from a makeup artist, who advised her to fill a bowl with ice water and then briefly immerse her face in it for about a minute.

Many of these tips seem quite usable. Deciding to do them is much easier than going to a plastic surgeon. However, if you’re not ready to chase eternal beauty like these stars, you can join the other company of celebrities. For example, Martha Stewart encourages us all to accept our age with gratitude.
