Beauty Advice to Steal from Jennifer Aniston
Posted by Cat Meeker on August 18, 2012 at 2:42 PM
Since her days on Friends, Jennifer Aniston has always been a beauty icon. She’s aged with grace and always looks glowing, yet natural. And we can’t wait to see how stunning she looks in her wedding gown. Take a tip from America’s sweetheart, and add these beauty lessons to your regimen.
1. Go Nude
When it comes to makeup, Jennifer Aniston is not one for too much drama. Nude lipsticks and beige and brown eye shadows showcase her natural beauty. Follow this trick and you’ll never appear too “done up.”
2. Stay Active
We think Jennifer’s body has never looked better. Even though she doesn’t spend hours in the gym, she commits to at least 20 minutes of cardio daily, usually running or Spinning. Plus, she’s a yoga devotee and contributes her improved posture to the stretching exercises.
3. Highlight Your Assets
Aniston isn’t afraid to show off the body she’s worked hard for. You can often catch her baring her toned arms and legs in strapless minidresses. Her red carpet looks are a perfect example of balancing a sexy look, because she never reveals too much skin.
4. Drink a Lot of Water.
And we mean a lot. Jennifer definitely tops the old 8 glasses a day standard. “I drink 100 ounces of Smartwater every day," she has said; that's the equivalent of 12 ½ glasses. Try adding some fruit to water if the taste is just too plain for you.
5. Glow, but Don't Shine.
Aniston maintains a youthful glow by sticking to tinted moisturizers and sheer foundations. She doesn’t overdo it either, preventing any oil-slick shininess. Try L'Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup to achieve her look. It’s light, smooth, and oil-free, with dozens of shades to match any skin tone.
6. Don’t Overstyle.
She once started “The Rachel” craze, but Jen’s actually pretty laidback with her hair, even on the red carpet. She often wears it down, loose, and parted in the center with minimal products. Even though her hair has clearly been straightened, it’s never perfectly sleek.
7. Pony Up
When Aniston isn’t wearing her hair down, she more often than not, turns to ponytails. Her hairstylist says, "She always pulls out a few more strands when I'm done," for a messier, more natural look. To keep a swingy ponytail from looking too juvenile, position it just above the middle of the head, but no higher.
