Jessica Alba has been successfully juggling her three major roles quite well—she’s a talented actress, owns her own beauty product brand, Honest Company, and is a mother of two daughters (Honor Marie, 8, and Haven Garner, 5). To give fans of the star a bonus, Alba shared her best makeup tips with Shape. If you’re looking for fool-proof beauty routine and skincare advice, here are three tips from the celebrity: Accentuate your best features, only use concealer when absolutely necessary, and strategically apply powder to your face.
About accentuating your best features, Alba says, “When it comes to my daily beauty routine, I concentrate on enhancing the features that I like — namely, my eyes and lips and the tops of my cheekbones — and covering up the things I don’t, like my dark circles and certain little capillaries. I’ll even do a slightly smoky eye for daytime or a bold lip.”
She also uses the method of “spot concealing.” She says, “I do it under my eyes or just around my nose — that’s where I get a little bit red. I put concealer there, then follow with some powder between my eyebrows, around the sides of my nose, and under my bottom lip.”
Finally, she sets her look with just the right method of powder application, “I used to think you had to set your makeup and cover your whole face with powder. But that just makes you look old. Put powder only where you really need it.”
All the products she uses are from her Honest Beauty line, and the products come at an affordable price, considering how non-toxic and baby-safe they are. All these tips and more are offered in October’s Shape issue.
