”I’ve always been told I have good skin so I try and look after it as much as possible. I usually deep cleanse and exfoliate my skin four times a week. I get a gentle peel from my facialist that takes away all the dead cells on the surface, and then I focus on moisturisation.”
”When I’m flying a lot, I have to make extra effort with my skin, even if it’s just using a quick hot cloth wash and applying organic oils. Anything will do – one time, I even applied olive oil.”
”I work out a lot and that’s helped me to maintain a more youthful face because when you do a lot of cardiovascular exercise, it boosts your blood flow. I believe exercise is an essential part of your beauty regime and it’s also a great stress reliever. It’s very important to battle stress as, in the end, it really shows on your face. A hot bath with Epsom salts at the end of the day helps you to unwind.”
New mom Snooki was kind enough to offer some valuable advice to pregnant Kim Kardashian on how to look her best while giving birth:
“Kim, first impressions are everything, so when you meet your baby for the first time, you have to look flawless. If your face is already made up when your water breaks, you have plenty of time to do it in the hospital when you’re waiting to dilate. I waited 27 hours, and the whole time, I just put on makeup and watched cartoons. And, make sure you choose your makeup palettes wisely, because the hospital rooms are boring, the walls are white; it’s just not a good look.
Go for pink or red lips, rather than nudes. Remember to keep an extra pair of eyelashes in your purse, just in case your water breaks when you’re not at home. Or, just do like I did and bring a whole box.
“Make sure you bring your own hospital gown, because hospital gowns at the hospital are ugly. And for me, I brought my own leopard-print satin. It just made me feel beautiful while I was in labor. Kim, I feel like you would be in more of a couture designer, maybe like Dolce & Gabbana gown.
Accessorize! Make sure you stay away from the big hoop earrings, because it can get caught in your extensions. You can wear some nice diamond studs so you look really cute in your selfies.
Trust me, you’re gonna get bloated and you’re gonna have like a million double chins, so cover the s— up!
Make sure your mascara is waterproof. Because you’re going to cry with the pain with a baby coming out of your vagina and also when you meet your baby for the first time. And, trust me, you do not want to look like a zebra.”
“I was just learning to be by myself. We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the b––t. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome and he could dance… I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender.’ He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightening… I thought ‘I’m not beautiful enough or his type.’ I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk.”
… says Olivia in Marie Claire magazine.

You look at Katherine Hepburn and her pant suits or you look at Grace Kelly and her incredibly feminine gowns that look like a princess – very fittingly. I look to women like that because I always look for style and not trends. There are two very different things. One can be iconic in any time period. I always want to wear things that my kids can look back on and say ‘mom, you look amazing.’ Not like ‘I can’t believe you wore that.’
Her haircare tips:
I’m actually a pretty shy person by nature so it’s very much a safety net for me. I love to have my hair down and I love to have it full. I always like it to look really relaxed. [Structured hair] just makes me feel stiff and uncomfortable. If I have my hair down, there’s something romantic about it. I feel like it looks lived it… it has a story. When I wash and dry my hair I have naturally wavy hair so I’ll dry it where it’s still a little bit wet and then I’ll put it just in a ballerina bun and then when I take it out it has a really nice natural deep wave… If you have any sort of natural bend in your hair, if you let it dry in that bun… make sure the bun is really tight then it will come out with really pretty waves.
Her beauty tips – improvise:
It’s always about ‘are there any accidents that are going to happen… let’s use eyelash glue’ [to glue down a dress so it doesn't ride up]. My mom is very clever that way… always thinking of odd things in a pinch. My mom used Advil as blush once… she didn’t have blush, so she licked the Advil and took the pink off of it.
