Want brighter skin like Brooke Shields’? There’s a vitamin for that!
Kristin Scott Thomas Berry Lipstick “Whitens” Teeth
The Four Weddings and a Funeral star is always radiant, but yellow-tinged teeth in 2015 dulled her megawatt grin. “Pricey in-office procedures can bleach away the stains that have amassed over the years, but you can get the same age-defying effect with a pop of color on the lips,” says makeup artist Alex LaMarsh, who’s worked with Sarah Jessica Parker and Cher. Case in point: Kristin’s sparkling smile now: “The blue undertones of a berry lipstick instantly counteract any yellow, creating the illusion of whiter teeth.” Even better, the subtle shine of a glossy formula with hydrating jojoba oil (like Burt’s Bees Gloss
Lip Crayon in Pacific Coast, $8, walmart.com) brings a smile and skin tone to life.
Candice Bergen Lowlights Add Va-Va-Volume
Over-highlighted hair left the Murphy Brown star looking older at 68 than she does at 71! “Too much bleach zaps hair’s youthful dimension while leaving it dry and frizzy,” says colorist Rona O’Connor, who has worked with Debra Messing and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. For smooth, voluminous and lustrous locks like Candice has now, O’Connor advises adding lowlights, which give hair shine and redeposit pigments to “plump” strands. To do: Paint 1-inch sections of hair (similar to applying highlights) using a color two shades darker than your current hue (like Clairol Nice ’N Easy Hair Color in #8/103A-Natural Medium
Blonde, $7, target.com). Let sit 25 minutes; rinse.
Brooke Shields This Vitamin Brightens Skin
Even supermodels aren’t immune to the aging woe that affects countless women: pesky brown spots. “Years of sun exposure leads to an overproduction of melanin, resulting in the hyperpigmentation that dots our faces,” says celebrity dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D. To fade those spots and restore a radiant glow like Brooke’s now, she recommends using a cream rich in niacinamide (vitamin
B3). “It prevents spots from forming by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which cells need to produce melanin.” And recent studies show that applying a cream infused with the potent vitamin (we like Mad
Hippie Face Cream $26, madhippie.com) twice a day can fade current discoloration in just four weeks.
