Michelle Obama is a wonderful woman, consistently being described as ‘the bomb dot com’ by her fans! One thing you’ll notice about Michelle is that she has strong arms and loves to flaunt them in sleeveless dresses and tops. She recommends that we exercise every day, even if it’s just for a short while. You’ll notice that she is also always smiling. Due to this, she looks beautiful. Whether it’s down to all of those exercise endorphins or the love she has for Obama, we’ll never know!

She also tells people to use a moisturizer with an SPF every day, to avoid those damaging sun rays and environmental nasties. Getting plenty of sleep is also at the top of her priority list!
Is it just us, or has Tyra not aged a day since she first exploded onto the modeling scene? Tyra explains that skincare is key to looking your best and that she has her own little ritual that she likes to stick to.
She explains how she moisturizes every single part of the body when she’s just out of the shower. It’s something her mother told her to do when she was young, and she’s stuck to it ever since. She’s also a fan of vaseline, using it on her laugh lines and other areas of the face!
This is the lady that invented ‘smizing’ – smiling with your eyes without going OTT with your teeth. She looks incredible for it!
‘Yonce is a fan of having a signature scent, and genuinely wears her own perfumes; Heat and Heat Rush. She doesn’t like to mix things up much when it comes to smelling great!
She says how she loves to show off her natural curls, making them look a little bedhead for a sexy feel.
When it comes to makeup, fixing spray is something she makes her makeup artists use. She loves that it makes your skin look natural again even after powder. Gold shadow in the inner corners is a trick she uses to look more awake!
If you’re looking to lose weight, she advises that you take it slow – not like when she did the master cleanse for her role in Dreamgirls. She lost weight quickly, but she said she would never do it again or recommend it to anybody. The body needs real food!
You may or may not know that RiRi recently launched ‘Fenty Beauty’ – an absolutely incredible range of makeup, focusing on a flawless complexion with over 40 foundation shades!
There’s something for everybody in this range, and many beauty gurus love the foundation, saying they feel that RiRis flawless skin has been put on their face.
You’ll usually spot her on the carpet with a mix of girly and vamp in her look. There’s always something edgy about her look.
Instead of just highlighting your face, make like RiRi and highlight the rest of your body, especially shoulders, collar bones, and chest for a glam look. You can even do your legs. She encourages her fans to be daring with their look and often contrasts makeup with the rest of her outfit.
Zendaya is still young, but she likes to emphasize how there are no rules in beauty, and that it has no definition. She even goes as far as doing her own makeup for the red carpet! She’s a huge fan of non-touring, encouraging her fans to go for a more natural look rather than always trying to reshape the face with makeup. She recommends shimmer to mask a tired face, and wants everyone to have fun with their look!

Nicki is pretty famous for her bold beauty looks on the red carpet, sporting crazy outfits and bright makeup too. She often wear wigs made from Indian hair that look really natural but make a statement at the same time.
She loves pink lipstick and other bright makeup items. However, she no longer has crazy long nails after she ripped one off while driving.
Although Nikki is a fan of the bold makeup look, she also wants people to know how important it is to let pores breathe.
Lupita shaved her head when she was 19 because of damage and said it was very liberating but very strange at the same time. However, she kept it ever since! She says it’s easy for afro hair to change shape during the day, so an afro pick is a must.
Lupita loves avocado oil for head to toe skincare, and loves a bright color on nails to make a statement.
Alicia started going barefaced on the red carpet and looks absolutely flawless. She swears by regular facials, and she eats healthily and exercises often. She wants everyone to know that she’s not anti-makeup, she just didn’t want to cover up anymore. Make sure you use facial oil for a glowing look like Alicia!
Kelis doesn’t do much in terms of makeup, but shades in her eyebrows to make sure they look great. She’s a huge fan of smart casual dress, often wearing jeans to big events!
Kelly calls herself a beauty product hoarder, and is a huge fan of peel off masks for a perfect complexion.
She gets eczema, but uses a special serum to cool it down. You’ll also know that Kelly has abs to die for, which she credits to her regular Yoga regime!
Halle always gives skin a break when not working, but says it’s important to feel confident, whatever you look like that day. She likes to stay fit year round, rather than just training when she has a role coming up too. Halle recommends leave in conditioner to keep your hair wavy and looking fab!
