From Eva Mendes to Megan Fox, we are always looking for our favorite celebrity's beauty secrets. Beauty expert Lindsey Mills talks to Betty Confidential about the top beauty secrets stars never tell.
#1 White Eyeliner
"It’s a popular trick with supermodels. White eyeliner opens up the eye, giving the appearance of bright, alert eyes,” says Lindsay. How do you apply it? To avoid looking ghostly, line only the inside corners along the bottom lash line for an open, wide-awake look."
#2 Satin Pillows
"Lindsay states, I tell my clients all the time, cotton is aging you! What most celebrities seem to know that the un-famous are just figuring out is that quality pillowcases are worth the splurge. Why? Those tiny, sleep lines you see in the mirror when you wake up, eventually become deeper wrinkles. Satin and silk-blend fabrics don’t dent your face, and they’re really great for your hair. So unless you plan on sleeping on your back, it’s totally worth the money. Besides what’s pretty should be better for you."
#3 Cranberry Juice
"Redheaded celebs take to rinsing their hair in this favorite juice to add extra shine and keep the color rich and lustrous."
#4 Peppermint Extract
"Collagen injections? No thanks. It’s been reported that a few popular singers prefer this trick to painful injections. Peppermint extract is a natural plumper, because it dilates blood vessels. Simply dab a bit on with your fingers and enjoy your youthful, plump pout."
#5 Teeth Whitening
"Ever wonder how celebrities maintain their gleaming smiles? A few A-list actresses have been known to smash up strawberries with baking soda (another natural whitening remedy, found in most toothpastes) and brush with the concoction at least a couple of times a week.
#6 Face Spritzer
"Another supermodel trick is a mixture of water and whole milk in a spray bottle. This spray, when spritzed on regularly throughout the day, locks in skin’s moisture and keeps your complexion glowing."
#7 Lemon Juice
"Lemon juice is a natural cleanser and toner in one. This trick, used by Hollywood stars and models, keeps skin fresh, clear and evenly balanced. Just like any expensive toner, it helps to shrink the size of pores and maintain an even complexion. Added bonus? Citric acid acts as an exfoliator. Have sun spots? Lemon juice is proven to help diminish the look of those too. Apply it to cotton balls and sweep entirely over face as a major part of your cleansing routine."
#8 Olive Oil for Waterproof Mascara (and everything else)
Loaded with antioxidants A and E and non-clogging, olive oil is to beauty what sliced bread is for the sandwich. It takes off even the hardest to remove eye makeup, and leaves your delicate under eye skin so baby smooth, smoother than your current eye cream. After three days the under eye area will look hydrated, refreshed and dark circles will be gone. Chronic dark circles are usually an issue of dry skin."
