Star se­crets “What did your mother teach you about beauty?”

Be­cause she’s a big in­flu­encer .

Glamour (South Africa) - - La Une -

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.”

Jen­nifer Lopez Gina Ro­driguez

“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.”

Lupita Ny­ong’o

“My mother taught me that your pre­sen­ta­tion is an ex­pres­sion of how much you care about your­self and those around you.”

Jes­sica Chas­tain

“The most im­por­tant les­son was to wash my face at night, but that’s some­thing I for­get to do all the time.”
