Nail your beauty routine and look a million bucks with these A-list tips

We’ve all lusted after the glowing skin, flowing hair and twinkling eyes that our favourite celebs sport on the red carpet – so when ten stars revealed their best beauty tips we were listening!

Click through to get hair and makeup tips from Emma Watson, Sofia Vergara and more!

1. Sofia Vergara

“I use three coats of mascara on my top lashes and one on the bottom,” tells Modern Family star Sofia. “Start as close to the base of your lashes as you can, then wiggle back and forth and move up and out through the lashes for volume.”

Try: CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara, $23.99.

2. Cate Blanchett

“Massage your face,” advises the Oscar- winning Aussie. “Mary Greenwell is a great make-up artist and before she puts any product on, she massages your face to wake your muscles up. You can also mix foundation with moisturisers or primers and massage it into your face so it’s living with your skin and not just a layer on top.”

3. Halle Berry

The Extant star reveals, “To make my lips look naturally pink, I put on red lippy, wipe it off, then apply clear gloss.”

Try: L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Intense in Orange Fever, $23.99.

4. Drew Barrymore

“My current obsession is toners,” says the newly single actress. “They shrink your pores and keep skin clean.”

Try: Trilogy Hydrating Mist Toner, $29.90.

5. Liv Tyler

The Lord of the Rings beauty has a trick for flawless-looking skin. “After applying foundation and blush, dust your face with translucent powder, then mist with a rosewater spray and lay a tissue over it for a second.”

Try: Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, $88.

6. Elle MacPherson

“Draw attention to your cheekbones,” advises the supermodel. “It gives you a wide-eyed, youthful look without having to put on a lot of make-up.”

Try: Natio Mineral Blush & Bronze Palette, $23.50.

7. Emma Watson

The Harry Potter star has a trick for mishaps. “If you make a mistake with your mascara, dip a cotton ball in foundation to remove and conceal at the same time.”

Try: Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation, $24.99.

8. Nicole Kidman

“If you’ve got red hair, try washing it in cranberry juice,” tells the Aussie actress. “It can work wonders to brighten it.”

9. Kate Hudson

For peepers like those of the screen siren, Kate suggests, “Line your inside upper lid. It’s very subtle and brings out your eyes.”

Try: Almay Eyeliner Pencil, $21.50.

10. Eva Mendes

Ryan Gosling’s baby mama tells, “A shimmery bronzer over a matte one is the perfect way to look alive. If you don’t want to wear make-up, mix some with moisturiser. You’ll look pretty but not made-up.”

Try: Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Prismatic Bronzing Powder, $69.
