Star secrets “What did your mother teach you about beauty?”
Because she’s a big influencer .
Mothers are a topic for therapy, but not usually for the red carpet. But that didn’t stop us from asking A-listers what wisdom Mom imparted. Some chose the big picture: “She said to stand back and look at the overall thing,” said Rene Russo. Others were practical: “My mother said you can never wear enough blush, and always have something on your lips,” said Jenna Dewan Tatum. And Melanie Griffith told Dakota Johnson, “moisturise and wear sunscreen.”

“My mother wore makeup to drive us to school. At the time, it seemed normal, but now I think, ‘What was she doing at 7am?’ I am very much like her. I don’t go out without makeup on.”
“My mom taught me discipline and a work ethic. She didn’t put a lot of emphasis on physical beauty. It was always about the person you were. To be a good girl was the thing. That has stayed with me my whole life.” “My mom taught me that I don’t need makeup. She says someone should love me for who I am as a person, and ageing is beautiful. I thank her for that.”
“The importance of inner beauty. All the awards and things I’ve accomplished, I don’t think about them. I respect my mother so much and I want her to be proud of me as a human.”
“My mother taught me that your presentation is an expression of how much you care about yourself and those around you.”
“The most important lesson was to wash my face at night, but that’s something I forget to do all the time.”
