Current Beauty Secrets - My Picks of the Tricks and Must-Have Products

Current Beauty Secrets - My picks of the tricks and must-have products behind the prettiest hair and makeup looks.

Voluminous Waves

As seen on: Amanda Seyfried

How-to: To achieve both wave and volume, start rolling your hot rollers at your roots rather than your ends. Wrap random sections, remove, and finish with a spritz of medium hold spray.

Sleek Hair

As seen on: Anne Hathaway

How-to: There's a fine line between hair that looks slick and greasy, but Anne Hathaway's side-parted style has just enough shine to appear sophisticated and modern. Rub a pee-size amount of product into your hands and apply on clean, dry hair from roots to ends.

Undone Hair

As seen on: Cameron Diaz

How-to: The secret to tousled locks is a body building texture spray. On dry hair, spritz your roots and massage the product into your scalp with your fingers. Continue by lightly spraying the lengths for added shape.

Flawless Skin

As seen on: Michelle Williams

How-to: Whitening products are the key to an even, radiant complexion. But don't be scared; they aren't for bleaching your skin, but rather for erasing dullness and dark spots for a brighter glow. Build one into your evening skincare routine that exfoliates and hydrates for even tone and texture.

Dark Lip

As seen on: Camilla Belle

How to: Dark red lips are the easiest way to get glamorous for a big night out. Camilla Belle, Kate Bosworth and Lana del Ray all got the look spot-on at the Met ball - a perfectly lined, lipsticked pout (no gloss, please) with a defined brow and porcelain skin. Shiny locks pulled back tightly or left down in smooth waves complete the look. Remember: red lips + big hair is NOT chic.

Side Braid

As seen on: Eva Longoria

How-to: What makes this style modern is the side part and unfussy yet polished feel. Start off with a frizz-busting shine serum for a smooth blowout that will maximize your length, then bring all your hair to one side. Begin braiding at your shoulder and continue until the last two inches and tie with an elastic.
