Celebrity Anti-Aging Secrets

The tabloids love to speculate which seemingly ageless Hollywood starlets have had plastic surgery, but their youthful look is often the result of really good hair and makeup. We asked top beauty pros to spill their secrets for giving their celebrity clients glowing skin, voluminous hair, full lips, and more.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Secret #1: Load on the Moisturizer

      "Skin that has a natural glow looks healthy and youthful," says celebrity makeup artist Troy Jensen. To get a fresh, almost dewy look, Jensen applies moisturizing cream first and tops it with a facial serum. He then layers on a lightweight, natural finish foundation that allows the sheen underneath to come through. We like Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Foundation ($34; An instant glow-buster: Powder. Don't use it, Jensen says. "Powder can dull the complexion and look cakey after a few hours."


      We love how Angelina Jolie always looks luminous.

    • Secret #2: Use Blush Strategically

      Blush is always anti-aging simply because it adds a pop of color to your face. But more specifically, cream blush adds to the dewy effect and applying it high on the cheekbones gives the face an instant lift, Jensen says. “Avoid blending the color too low -- it can drag the face down,” he says. His go-to choice for cheek: Girlactik Beauty's Cream Blush in Pink ($18:

      Pretty in pink: Cate Blanchett knows blush can be very uplifting.

    • Secret #3: Ponytails Aren't Just for the Gym

      The simple style can help defy gravity. A pony set higher on the head creates the illusion of a more lifted face. To make yours look chic, and not like a cheerleader, celebrity hairstylist Marc Anthony says to keep it smooth and tight. "When wearing a high ponytail, it's important that's polished," he says. Tame flyaways with Anthony's Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Treatment ($8; Also key: Hide the elastic by wrapping it with a small section of your hair.

      We love how Eva Longoria's high pony puts her sculpted cheekbones center stage.

    • Secret #4: Gloss Isn't Just for Teenagers

      A little gloss goes a long way in making you look more youthful. "For full, gorgeous lips, add a shimmery lips gloss in the center of the lips," Jensen says. This pro trick catches light, making lips look poutier. Try Revlon ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Crystal Water ($7.50; over any lip shade.

      We spotted some center lip sheen on Olivia Wilde. 

    • Secret #5: Bangs are Like Botox

      Anthony refers to bangs as “the French facelift.” The fringe conceals forehead lines, he explains. “It can also camouflage droopy eyes, and, when cut at the right angle, can blur crow’s feet,” Anthony says.

      Reese Witherspoon has made bangs part of her signature style.

    • Secret #6: Master Liquid Liner

      A precise swipe of eyeliner can turn back the clock, says celebrity makeup artist Erica Whelan. “As women get older, their eyes tend to recede and appear smaller -- defining your lash line can counteract this problem.” Skip the shadow (or go with a barely-there shade) and simply line your top lash line with jet black or espresso brown liner. “You want the line to be thin, dark, and crisp,” she says. Try L’Oreal Paris The Blackbuster by Infallible ($9; Finish by curling lashes and applying black mascara.

      Julianne Moore’s defined lash line puts all the focus on her eyes.

    • Secret #7: Layers are a Must

      You don't have to get rid of your long locks at a certain age, but you should ask your stylist to add some long layers throughout to add movement, Anthony says. "Long hair that just hangs there will drag down your face," he explains. A bit of layering will soften any cut and add volume -- both important for a younger look, he says.

      Layers give Jennifer Lopez's hair lots of body.

    • Secret #8: Nude Eyeliner (Really!)

      “My favorite trick is to use a flesh-tone eyeliner inside the lower the lash line,” Whelan says. It makes eyes look brighter and more awake instantly, she explains. Whelan uses Jouer Eye Clarifier ($20;

      Heidi Klum looks bright-eyed with nude liner along her lower lashes. 

    • Secret #9: Find a Good Colorist

      Adding golden tones to your hair color looks fresh and youthful, says Laurie Daniel, a colorist at Eva Scrivo Salon in New York City. If you’re blonde, stick to a golden base and ask your colorist to weave in some paler strands. If you’re a brunette, add warm honey and golden tones. “Solid, dark brown hair can look severe and draws attention to lines and wrinkles,” she says. If you’re a redhead, avoid harsh eggplant and burgundy shades and go for coppery, golden tones, Daniel says.

      Secret #10: Don't be so High-Brow

      A well-defined, shaped eyebrow can lift the face instantly, but that doesn't mean you should go for a high arch. "It can give women a mean scowl," he says. Jensen's tip: Tweeze just the first line of hairs closer to the bridge of the nose. After tweezing, he uses a brightening pencil below the brow and blends. "This accentuates and highlights the area that I want lifted," Jensen says, who uses this technique on singer Jewel. Try Clinique Instant Lift for Brows ($16.50;, a dual-ended brow pencil and highlighter.

      We like how Jewel's brows are defined but soft -- not severe.
