How to Marie Kondo your beauty rou­tine like a celeb.

“Won­der Woman needs to look like she doesn’t wear makeup but [still] look per­fect, and that’s the hardest thing,” says ac­tress and Revlon global brand am­bas­sador Gal Gadot on the beauty dilemma of a su­per­hero char­ac­ter whose pri­or­i­ties do not in­volve a cut crease but whose face will be pro­jected on mas­sive high-def screens. The so­lu­tion: Makeup artists on the Won­der Woman set fo­cused on per­fect­ing Gadot’s skin by mix­ing her foun­da­tion with mois­tur­izer and then ap­ply­ing it like you would a cream. “It evens out your skin tone and looks dewy, like a sec­ond skin,” says Gadot. It’s a strate­gic ap­proach to makeup ap­pli­ca­tion that Gadot, who joins mod­els Ash­ley Gra­ham, Ad­woa Aboah, Imaan Ham­mam and Raquel Zim­mer­mann as the face of the Revlon Live Boldly cam­paign, also em­ploys in her own life. “You need to be smart when you use it and pick a place to fea­ture,” she says, like eyes, lips or cheek­bones. “Less is more—that’s my motto with makeup as well.”


“When I first started in the beauty busi­ness in 2000, I was 17 years old,” says ac­tress Priyanka Cho­pra. “I lit­er­ally went from high school to the world stage, and I thought that [I] needed to do ev­ery­thing: My hair was done, and lots of makeup was done, and lots of styling was done. Over time, with my stylist and glam squad, we re­duced all of it. I didn’t think it would be a big deal [to not] wear as much foun­da­tion or fake lashes or stop teas­ing the back of my hair—I did that for years; I wanted big, big hair!—but it has made such a dif­fer­ence. I tran­si­tioned from that mind­set into ‘I love my hair—it’s a source of con­fi­dence.’” The path to find­ing hair nir­vana, says the Pan­tene spokesper­son, is the right prod­uct. “You just need the right sham­poo and con­di­tioner,” she ex­plains. “It re­ally sets the tone for your hair to be man­age­able. It lis­tens to you!” No teas­ing re­quired.
