1 Start from the inside.
“When I don’t look my best, I detox with raw foods and lots of water. It makes me feel better.”
Resist the pillow face-plant.
“I wash off my makeup every night before bed. It’s my number-one rule for good skin.”

2 Deal with dark circles.
“I haven’t found anything better than sleep and a good concealer. I swear by Clé de Peau Beauté.”
3 Try her genius pimple eraser.
“If it’s over my lip or on my cheek, I color it with a brown pencil. Instant beauty mark! I got that from my mom—she was a disco queen and has lots of tips.”
Tinted Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment, $25, hides and heals zits.
4 Avoid wrinkles (and rehab)!
“I’m only 19, so I’m not super concerned about aging. But my mom didn’t drink, smoke or tan while growing up, and she looks great. I’m following her plan.”
5 Relax, it’s summer!
“I don’t do intricate braids or hard-to-master updos. Just fresh, clean-smelling hair, worn down.”
Apologies, beauty pageant queens.
“I try not to overuse styling products, especially in the summer, because they dull hair and take away the pretty, natural shine.”

6 Cheat your blow-dry.
“After I wash my hair, I squeeze out water with a towel, then quickly blow out only the front sections so they’re smooth—forget the rest.”
Shriek in the shower.
“For the last minute, I rinse my hair in really cold water. I think it makes it shinier.”
“I’m addicted to the scent!” Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Volume Shampoo, $4
7 Get next to naked.
“I like an almost-no-makeup look. I wear a bit of blush, waterproof mascara and a lipcolor with a sheer finish. Done!”
For a quickie glow, swirl Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose, $60, onto cheeks.
Keep coverage ultralight.
8 Keep coverage ultralight.
“I pour a few drops of Nars Sheer Glow Foundation onto a damp sponge, then blend it over my skin.”
Dab on Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, $42, to even out skin.
9 Kick it up a notch at night.
“I swirl a wet eyeliner brush in brown shadow, then swipe it along my lash line and a little past the corner for an easy cat eye.”
A wash of BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Soundtrack, $30, makes eyes radiant.
10 Go for lips that won’t disappear.
“Guys like natural beauty. I get it. So find ways to make them think you are! My thing is lip stain. It stays put so you don’t have to constantly reapply.”
A little pain is good.
“If I have no time to touch up, I get a natural glow by pinching my cheeks 10 times really hard. Well, not so hard that I bruise.”
11 Think like Superman.
“I don’t want to have to change my nailcolor whenever I put on a new outfit. I usually choose nude, because it matches whatever I wear.”
