Can you believe Mariah Carey is 50-years old?
The pop star – who has been hitting all the high notes since the 80s – celebrated her milestone ‘anniversary’ earlier this year (she doesn’t do birthdays, darling!) and we’re totally in awe!
With her enviable curves and flawless skin, Mariah easily looks at least two decades younger!
And Mimi isn’t the only Hollywood star who doesn’t look her age, the following leading ladies are all over 50 and look totally fabulous!
They’ve also shared their most tried & tested beauty advice which keeps them looking young and radiant…
Mariah Carey (50) – Less is more!
Not when it comes to shopping and bling though!
The honey-blonde diva swears by minimalist make-up as she believes there’s less to remove, and less to clog your pores.
She told US Weekly in an interview: “I hate mascara. I never wear it…Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit.
“If you’re not wearing a lot of makeup, you don’t have to take a lot of it off. So, my goal is to wear the least amount of makeup possible so I don’t have to steam my face and take it all off.”
Jennifer Lopez (51) – Beauty sleep is everything!
The singer’s skin is absolutely flawless – and it’s partly thanks to her ability to get a good night’s rest, although we don’t know how she does it with her hectic schedule.
She told Instyle magazine: “The number one tip is to always get enough sleep. I can’t stress this enough…I would love to get nine or 10 hours of sleep, but either way, I always make sure I get at least eight.”
Jennifer Aniston (51) – Splash your face with ice cold water
Forget fancy face products, some good ‘ol chilled H20 will do the trick, says the actress.
Jen told Vogue magazine: “Get a bowl of ice water and splash your face 25 times. It’s an old school trick that Joan Crawford used to do—it just wakes your skin up.” Forgive us Jen if we don’t employ that one immediately.
Sandra Bullock (56) – Penis facials and hemorrhoid creams
Sandra is a fan of some unorthodox beauty practises, like the ‘penis facial’; which uses collagen found in foreskins to plump out wrinkles.
She’s also a big fan of hemorrhoid creams, which she claims she substitutes for an eye cream
She said during her Miss Congeniality movie premiere: “My favorite beauty-pageant secret: I didn’t realize that putting hemorrhoid ointment on your face is acceptable in the beauty business. But apparently butt cream does help lines around the eyes.”
Salma Hayek (54) – Skip washing your face in the morning!
It sounds extreme and will probably make your skin crawl, but the star swears by NOT washing your face in the morning!
She told The New York Times: “I never cleanse my skin in the morning. My grandmother taught me that at night, your skin replenishes all the things you lost during the day. Also, if I cleanse very well at night, why would it be dirty when I wake up?”
Halle Berry (54) – Make your own face masks
Forget La Mer and Eight Hour Creams, Halle’s go-to is a simple DIY face mask which contains brewed green tea, turmeric powder, lemon juice and plain yogurt.
“This potion brightens, tightens, reduces fine lines, and enhances that natural glow,” she shared in an Instagram post alongside her recipe.
Viola Davis (55) – Vaseline is her best beauty buy!
We all know that black don’t crack…..but for Viola, a budget beauty buy like Vaseline is common knowledge when it comes to her skincare routine.
She told Yahoo Lifestyle: “It is affordable, it is readily available, and it works wonders, most importantly…It’s a go-to product.”
Julia Roberts (52) – Don’t skimp on the olive oil
And just like Viola, Julia’s beauty tips are affordable and effortless – she uses olive oil on everything from her hair to her body & face to her cuticles.
