JULIANNE HOUGH, 22

STAR OF UPCOMING MOVIE FOOTLOOSE

"I think I look younger now than I did when I was 15, because I don't wear a lot of makeup. Being in the dance world, I had makeup on all the time, and I regret wearing that much, because I never looked like a kid. I've definitely toned it down, especially since my Dancing with the Stars days. I was always Oompa-Loompa orange from the fake tan! Now during the day I like a light coat of mascara and some lip gloss, and I feel vibrant and youthful."

beauty must-have

"I use tinted moisturizer or concealer under my eyes and to cover a couple of acne scars on my chin."

JOY BRYANT, 36

PARENTHOOD ACTRESS

"I've simplified my skin-care regime. I used to have every product and was using everything. Now I have a few things: I will use a concealer and blush, and I like to have a curled lash and mascara. If I'm getting fancy, I will do a little bit of a smudgy eyeliner."

beauty tip

"If I put lip balm on my eyelids, it gives a little shiny pop. And then if I put it on my cheeks, it gives a little sheen."

ANNE HECHE, 41

STAR OF HBO'S HUNG

"I don't wear makeup when I am not working, but I always clean my skin and use sunblock. I have a lovely boyfriend [actor James Tupper, 45] who always wants to take pictures of me when I first wake up. He has taken some of my most prized photographs. So to have people see me the way my family sees me and loves me is very special."

beauty tip

"Put on a hat if you have a pimple on your forehead and wear large sunglasses if you have one on your cheek. All you can do is hide."

MANDY MOORE, 27

STAR OF FILM TANGLED

"I'm a product junkie. I love playing with makeup, but when it comes down to it, I don't think I'm particularly good at putting on my own makeup. You get spoiled after you've been lucky enough to work with people who know what they're doing. And my husband [singer Ryan Adams, 36] implores me not to wear makeup, so I will definitely go out barefaced."

secret talent

"I'm an expert at curling my lashes without a mirror. It's something I can do on the go."

KALEY CUOCO, 25

THE BIG BANG THEORY ACTRESS

"We all have insecurities. I've hated my nose for years. I feel like it's indented on the side. I do like my lips! People are always asking me if I got them injected, so I feel like they are plump enough. I'm really into hot pink lipstick right now. If I'm going to glam it up, it's hot pink."

quick fix

"My favorite thing is, after having so much makeup on at work, I take an extremely hot hand towel and throw it on my face and just lie there. It's like my own mini-facial. It's so good for your pores because it opens them right up, and it's so easy."

MAGGIE Q, 31

STAR OF CW'S NIKITA

"When I was young, my mom put mayonnaise in my hair and egg whites on my face! It was weird, and nowadays I don't do that anymore. She also had one lipstick she would use on her eyes, cheeks and lips. She would blend it everywhere. That I still do. If I forget my makeup and have to go somewhere, I'll use my lipstick that way."

beauty rule

"I pick my battles. If I want to play up any of my features, it's either eyes or lips. I don't do both."

HAYDEN PANETTIERE, 21

SCREAM 4 ACTRESS

"There was never an age that I didn't wear makeup in some aspect of my life. I started on soap operas when I was 4. I love all the different looks: I love doing smoky eyes, the sun-kissed look, bee-stung cheeks, red lipstick. I love the excitement of getting all dolled up, but when it's summer I don't like to wear makeup because it just ends up a disaster by the end of the day. Your mascara's running down your face!"

beauty tip

"You have to start off with a nice canvas to have fun with makeup. I love facials. It's like getting a tune-up on your car. You just want to give it a good cleaning so it can breathe and start fresh."

LUCY HALE, 21

STAR OF PRETTY LITTLE LIARS

"I get a lot of compliments on my eyes and my eyebrows. I used to hate my eyebrows growing up because they were so bold. I've had them waxed, threaded, I've had other people tweeze them. But I found a shape that I like the best and I maintain them myself. Now I accept them. They're what make me a little different."

her beauty basics

"If you have a simple routine that works for you, that's all you need. I use a face wash, a really good moisturizer and sunscreen."

CHERYL BURKE, 26

DANCING WITH THE STARS PRO

"I think it's weird having freckles! I have hated them since I was a kid. My mom always told me I would grow out of them, but I'm still waiting for that to happen. On the show you'd never know I have freckles, because I wear so much makeup. I do feel best without makeup on. People say I look like my sister Nicole. She's 18, so I'll take it!"

secret weapon

"I always have Burt's Bees lip balm on me. My lips always get chapped, so I moisturize them constantly."

ANGIE HARMON, 38

STAR OF TNT'S RIZZOLI & ISLES

"I always wear mascara and eyeliner. I like waterproof eyeliner because I cannot be bothered with a re-application throughout the day. I just don't have time for that! Then I put on a nice lip gloss because it's important to me that lips look hydrated. There's nothing worse than having a glass of wine with the Horn [her nickname for her husband, retired football player Jason Sehorn, 40] and I know he's coming in for the kiss and I'm like, 'Oh my God, I hope my lips look pretty!' "

best advice

"Don't skimp on moisturizer. You need to feel it with your hands, not throw a thin layer on. As I get older, I'm going through a jar a night!"
