Wondering how the most stylish stars look so camera-ready, even when they’re spotted by the paps on the street without their glam squads? How do they maintain a flawless summer glow and for ageless beauties like Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union, how in the hell do they look so young?

Favor ain’t fair, and neither are good genes! But every girl deserves glowing skin, gone-with-the-wind fabulous hair, and a beach-ready body.

You may be headed to an office instead of a major red carpet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look like you just stepped off of a movie set!

Get into the tricks and killer secrets behind the best looks in Hollywood!



For the “7/11” star’s beauty regimen, she uses Aquafor Healing Ointment. “It’s a healing ointment, but I use it to remove eye makeup, as a lip moisturizer and on my eyelids.” You can grab this at any Walgreens or Target store!


Mary J. Blige

For her secret beauty dish, Mary’s 411 is: ”Don’t go a full day or night without washing your face. You have to get all the dirt and makeup out of your pores.” We can’t agree more! Keep facial wipes within arm’s reach on your nightstand or in your handbag next to that extra pair of knickers! *winks*



Supermodel, who defies all of logic of aging dispels that myth brown girls can’t wear blush. She says, ”Every woman – even women of color – should wear a blush bronzer. Not a self-tanner bronzer!” Yes girl, have fun with it!

Halle Berry

Leave it to our girl Halle to come with the trick that doesn’t take any runs to the makeup counter. The Oscars says, “To make lips look naturally pink, I put on red lipstick, wipe it off, and then apply clear gloss.” You know you have some extra “Ruby Woo” from M.A.C. so dig into that tube and make it last forever!


Mariah Carey

The diva of divas plumps up her pout the au naturel way: with mint extract, which she mixes into her gloss to get blood flowing to her lips. You can grab this at any health food store.



The secret to the island girl’s enviable body? Swimming! “I love swimming, and doing anything in the ocean…that’s very, very good for your body.”


Joan Smalls

“I tried a mixture for my hair that consisted of avocado, olive oil and eggs! I’d recommend it if you’re up for experimenting and getting your hands messy! It’s a good DIY trick for providing moisture to brittle hair.” You can’t have enough hair cocktails!

Taraji P. Henson

The ‘Empire’ star says, “I wash my face in the morning and at night. I drink a lot of water. You have to stay hydrated. As far as my hair, I wrap my hair at night because that’s less heat on it every day. I love healthy hair. I love healthy skin. I love skin that glows.” The W magazine cover girl says she’s addicted to Shea butter!

“I love this Shea butter because I put it on and I feel like, when I go home and I go to bed I take my clothes off, I feel like I’ve just put lotion on. And I only put it on once a day. I use the cream for my feet and I put socks on at night.” That sock trick is a must ladies!


Beverly Johnson

The former top model uses fish oil to keep her ageless skin glowing. “This is what I love the most. I open up an Omega XL capsule and I actually apply it to my skin.”



What’s the one thing the deejay, singer and designer can’t get enough of for her tresses? Solange swears by Argan oil! She rubs the natural oil through her curls to keep them moisturized and hydrated.


Gabrielle Union

Gabby’s beauty trick is the gift from God that keeps flowing: water! The “Being Mary Jane” starlet drinks a whooping gallon of a water a day. She says once she hit her mid-thirties she started gulping H20 by the gallon and it clearly it works for her skin!


Sanaa Lathan

This beauty’s secret isn’t out of a jar, it’s all about trips to the spa! “I like long Shiatsu massages and going into the sauna. I like to do a rotation from the sauna to the cold pool for 45 minutes, which is really amazing for your skin.”
