Every time we see a red carpet we hear the same thing: “look how old it is and how good it is”, “of course, with the money they have, whatever” or “that’s because of all the operations they do”. Whatever they say, the beauty of the famous interests a lot.
Although many have undergone the odd touch-up (you just have to see our before and after gallery), that impeccable appearance is usually achieved thanks to cosmetics and makeup. The ‘celebrities’ have no qualms about hiring the best makeup artists so that they are perfect on days when they have an event, with the best (almost) imperceptible tricks that give a “good face” effect Instantly.
Between treatments and trickswe have recorded some that they have confirmed themselves or we have been able to verify thanks to the flashes of the photographers, from whom no one can hide any secret.
1. Jennifer Lopez’s eyeliner
One of the tricks most used by Jennifer Lopez is outline your lips on the outside with a color somewhat darker than its natural color. Thanks to this, the actress gets bigger and juicier lips without having to resort to hyaluronic acid infiltrations and in just a few seconds.
With this, the appearance of a larger mouth is achieved and it defines its shape, so we will not have to worry about possible asymmetries. Of course, remember to blend very well and accompany it with a gloss to enhance this effect. Although it is a somewhat old trick, it has been popularized by Hailey Bieber through her TikTok and Instagram, renaming it ‘brownie glazed lips’.
2. The ‘glow’ of Zöe Kravitz
Every rug that Zöe Kravitz walks on surprises us with perfect, luminous skin. In addition to having privileged genetics, the actress has an ace up her sleeve that she confessed during an interview. “The only thing I do that Nina Park (her makeup artist of hers) taught me is put on the highlighter before the foundation. If you’re not putting on a superheavy base, it shows,” he said.
The best way to achieve this natural ‘glow’ effect is to use a liquid highlighter without shimmer particles. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury knows the benefits of doing this technique and that’s why she launched the Hollywood Flawless Filterto make the hack even more difficult to identify.
3. Jennifer Aniston’s permanent lipstick
If we are going to be eating or drinking, it is inevitable that in the end the lipstick ends up disappearing. To avoid this, makeup artists have managed for years to make the lipstick last much longer and they resort to rice papers, as Jennifer Aniston’s makeup artist confessed.
By posting a photo of the former actress of friends On her Instagram, she revealed that she applies lipstick and then places a piece of rice paper (the one to remove the glitter) over them and gently sprinkle loose powder. This prevents the lipstick from running, smudging and fading.
4. Susan Sarandon’s sculpted face
In addition to individual lashes (like the one we see detached on the right eye), Susan Sarandon uses the bronzer for a natural look that emphasizes its natural beauty. Makeup artists often use tricks on celebrities who end up coming to us years later and this is one of the examples.
For a long time, the actress has been sculpting her face with bronzer, but with a very particular technique. “Contouring is for professionals and the camera only, but you can subtly sculpt your face with a bronzer stick. Apply it on big 3 shape on each side of the facecurving it from the forehead to the top of the cheekbones and below the jawline before blending,” explained Tim Quinn, the actress’s makeup artist.
5. The deep gaze of Kim Kardashian
In the past year, marking and intensify the look only with bronzer It has become very popular thanks to the ‘clean girl’ trend, but Kim Kardashian has been using it for years. One of the examples is at the 2022 Oscar Awards, where Ariel Tejada, her makeup artist, explained her look step by step.
To mark the crease of the eyelid, Ariel used the ‘stick’ from Rare Beauty instead of using brown eyeshadow. By also using it as a bronzer on the rest of her face, she achieves a ultra-natural result with a defined and marked look.
6. Lady Gaga’s cheapest foxy eye
The ‘foxy eye’ is a procedure that not only cuts the look to give a more mysterious and seductive effect, it also helps make-up look much better (especially when the eyelid is hooded). Bella Hadid made this intervention famous, but Lady Gaga has given us the perfect alternative if we do not want to spend anything and we are afraid of punctures.
The singer confessed that when she wears wigs she puts adhesive tape on them so they stick well and don’t move, but she also takes the opportunity to stretch the skin and achieve a ‘lifting’ effect with slanted eyes in a few seconds.
7. Charlize Theron and the fraxel laser
We could not finish without showing one of the tricks that was most talked about when it came to light and that is that, during the 2019 Golden Globes, we were able to see a strange cheek pattern up to the jaw from Charlize Theron, bringing to light one of her secrets to look eternally young. These brands are produced by the fraxel laseran aesthetic procedure to eliminate wrinkles.
It is a non-ablation fractional laser treatment that treats wrinkles, removes blemishes, improves the appearance of scars and acne, eliminates stretch marks, and improves skin texture and tone. This treatment usually leaves characteristic marks that they disappear after 3-5 days.
