The best beauty secrets are the ones that are passed down and kept alive through generations of gorgeous women. Jessica Alba is certainly all the wiser for heeding her grandmother’s advice, which is mostly responsible for that beautiful, healthy glow she’s always sporting.

Molly Ringwald has inspired girls since the ’80s, and now she’s back as a self-assured grown woman with plenty of wisdom in the beauty department. Ringwald recently confessed to BellaSugar.com that she now wears significantly less makeup than she did in her teenage years, but the length of time that it took for her to get to that point taught her a few neat tricks where makeup is concerned.

In the modern world, there’s no “color by numbers” guide to show you where to put your makeup. Runway models (and the likes of Lady Gaga) have all teamed up to show us that where you apply your makeup is inconsequential as long as you can maintain a creative vision.

Consider the way you look after a day in the sun – are the apples of your cheeks the only part of your face that receive a dose of healthy color? We think you know what the answer is, which is why we’re encouraging you to look skyward as you extend your blush to your temples and forehead.

Even though makeup comes in a rainbow of varieties, it may not always feel as though we have that many choices as to which features we wish to emphasize. Do up your eyes, or go for a bold lip – never both, but still, these are only two routes to choose from.

If you thought that winter was the time for your cheeks to stand out – what with that flushed, rosy just-in-from-the-cold look that dominated so much of our appearance last season – get ready for the warm, natural glow that springtime is sure to bestow upon them.

If you’ve been keeping up any makeup routine at all, you probably know by now that most of us look better with just a touch of blush on our cheeks, no matter how youthful or natural our looks.

While it’s true that we’re all probably sick of winter, there’s no other season that gives you that naturally pretty flushed look. In fact, bringing out the natural blush on your cheeks is the best way to ride out what’s left of the season, and there are certain types of products that work best given the climate.

Finding the perfect shade of concealer or foundation can be easy – you simply take home the formula that most closely matches your skin color. Selecting the right blush, however, can be much trickier. After all, with the seemingly endless hues available, how are you to know which tone looks best?

While many of Hollywood’s most glamorous women are naturally beautiful, they also have teams of stylists that know every trick to ensure that the ladies appear their best. Luckily for those of us who don’t walk the red carpet regularly, some of the biggest industry experts recently shared their tips for looking fantastic.

When the temperatures start dropping, many women transition from the warm colors of summer to the cooler tones often associated with winter. Silver-flecked navys, purples and blue-toned reds are popular when the snow starts falling, but what about women who prefer yellows and oranges?

The winter can lead to a change in your complexion. And while dull skin is often treated with moisturizers and lotions, women looking for a quick pick-me-up can use a highlighter for an easy fix.
