Faux Pas, No More!

"Topstick isn't just for toupees! I use the wig-adhesive when I'm taping live segments. I simply take one side of the double-sided tape off, place it on my skin where I want the top to lay, and then I take the other side off and press the garment into place. Voila! No more wardrobe malfunctions!" says actress and TV personality Vanessa Minnillo.

Highlights

"One of my favorite beauty tricks is to apply a little bit of highlighter down the center of the nose — or on the sides to contour it," says Californication star Meagan Good. "Anytime the nose looks dewy, it brings all the light to the middle of your face and helps enhance every feature."

Smoke Signals

"I never put eyeliner under my eye," warns The Voice correspondent, video-game queen, and star of HULU's upcoming series Battleground, Alison Haislip. "I line the waterline, then use a blending brush to smudge the line together with the shadow. It makes for the perfect smoky eye."

Nailing It

"My hands are always on camera since I'm holding microphones all the time," explains Andrews. "Essie's nail polish in Ballet Slippers is the perfect shade for me because, even if it chips, it still looks subtle enough for this tomboy!"

Getting Lippy

"After I apply my lipstick, I put my index finger in my mouth and pull it out," Minnillo explains. "It cleans the area of loose pigments, ensuring that I don't get any embarrassing red marks on my teeth. If you try this, just remember to wash your hands when you're done!"

Healthy Strands

"I use Moroccanoil products religiously," adds Bowden. "They've improved the condition of my hair and treated any dryness so that my strands are bouncy and healthy again."

Eye Spy

"Every girl should use cream eyeliner and a slanted brush to apply eye makeup," notes Good. "You get more control when drawing on the line, because powder eyeliners don't show up well, and strictly liquid eyeliners can be very messy."

Put a Lid on It

"It might be an old wive's tale, but I put a thin coat of Vaseline on my eyelashes before I go to bed at night," Haislip adds. "When I wake up, my lashes look thick and healthy, and I constantly get compliments on them!"

Pout Protector

"My lips are chapped from all the traveling I do for games," says Andrews, who is also a correspondent for Good Morning America. "So using a good lip scrub is essential for me every single day."

Baby Talk

"When I'm feeling extra dry, I apply baby oil all over in the shower, right when I finish," Minnillo explains. "Then, I pat my skin dry when I get out. It's like a drink for thirsty skin."

The Skin-ny

"Know your skin type and seek the help of a good dermatologist about any pesky problems you may have," Bowden advises. "Creating a good regimen is essential to long-term benefits."

Instant Volume

"Dry shampoo is a life-saver," exclaims Haislip. "Not only does it help on mornings when I don't have time to wash my hair, but I use it on freshly cleaned strands to give my mop extra volume."

Towing the Line

"You should always use an eye cream that firms skin before applying makeup — or deciding not to wear any makeup at all," Good says. "The right cream will reduce the appearance of bags and dark circles. Plus, concealer sits better on hydrated skin, so you'll look much better rested!"
