Celebrity Beauty Product Picks: Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl Beautiful Blonde Hair ColorShe may have caught widespread flak for her snub of Knocked Up and of the Grey’s Anatomy writers, but no one’s criticizing One For The Money star Katherine Heigl’s looks. (Only perhaps her use of “the ugly truth”. Get it? Like her 2009 film The Ugly Truth? Eh? Yeah, I laugh at my own jokes. Someone has to.)

Here’s what the starlet uses to stay so gorgeous (other than a frustratingly perfect genetic roll of the dice):

  • Chanel Glossimer lip gloss: “I swear I have about 1,400,” Katherine admits of the popular lipgloss choice.
  • Mrs. Heigl uses Arcona Tea Tree Mask on her face about once a week. “Now I rarely get a breakout.”
  • Stila Cheek Mousse, which she applies to her cheekbones and brow bone, gives the 27 Dresses actress her healthy glow.
  • Pointing to a beauty product classic, Miss Heigl’s go-to product is Smith’s Rosebud Salve. “I always have it with me.”

Makeup Reviews: Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer

Stila Tinted Moisturizer ReviewFull coverage foundation has been feeling too heavy lately – I’m in for a more natural look, so I’ve been sampling a lot of tinted moisturizers lately. I tried Stila’s Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer in Light, since I’m a big fan of the brand in general and hoped it would measure up to BeneFit You Rebel and Sugartint.

The product blended seamlessly with my skin, and though it seemed thick, it didn’t feel heavy to wear. (It was just the teensiest bit sticky, though.)

Celebrity Skincare & Makeup Profile: Cate Blanchett

Celebrity Skincare and Makeup Profile Cate BlanchettOscar-winner and elegant Australian beauty Cate Blanchett is famed for her acting, but we also know her for beautiful skin. But much like many of us, Cate has admired and imitated the beauty of other women.

“I remember seeing Ingrid Bergman when she played Golda Meir, and also Liv Ullmann, and thinking wow,” Cate recalled. “I discovered them as older actors, so I admired their work first. Then I looked back at their work and saw what incredible beauties they were when they were young and how, as older women, they were still incredibly beautiful. I thought, I want to age like that, to have an inner life.”

In that regard, Cate has certainly succeeded. At 44 years old, Cate revealed her love for a number of products, especially SK-II’s skincare line, for whom she’s also a spokesperson (shocker!). Here are a few products Cate adores:
