Ask almost any actress on the red carpet for beauty secrets, and she’ll invariably say “Moisturize!” or “Use sunscreen!” Not Shailene Woodley. When asked for her best tip at Tuesday night’s L.A. premiere of Divergent, she said:

“Get in a bath and look at your body and be like, ‘Wow, thank you so much for hosting my mind and my heart,’ like as women you know, and also be pregnant with the world. I think that’s really beautiful beauty advice, like, close your eyes and think about all of the other women out there who aren’t in positions to be on a red carpet in Hollywood tonight enjoying this beautiful weather and all of these beautiful smiles and put those women in your womb and be pregnant with them and send them love.”

While that may be easier said than done, Woodley has offered up some simpler-to-follow (but still slightly out there) beauty advice in the past. If you’re looking to follow the Woodley plan for shiny hair and great skin, try some of the below tips.

Olivia Wilde may have picked up enough tricks from movie sets and her Revlon gig to DIY a holiday makeup look at home, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to go pro. Even she has her beauty hangups.

“I wish I could do a red lip, but I’m more comfortable with a bold eye,” the actress told PEOPLE while promoting the Revlon’s new Age Defying Collection in N.Y.C. “I know once I do the eye, it’s done. Inevitably, I’m going to eat something [or] kiss someone hello, so I mess up lipstick pretty much immediately. I still love playing with different shades of lipstick, but if I’m going to a holiday party, and I want to feel super-confident I’m doing a metallic eye.”

And, she adds, the key good to eye makeup is clean, well-shaped brows. “It changes your face so much when you have your eyebrows filled in and softened,” she said. “I spent years trying to look like Kate Moss with wispy thin eyebrows, which was a horrible mistake and everyone told me not to do it. So now I’m obsessed.”

PEOPLE StyleWatch editors were uniformly obsessed with Gabrielle Union’s stunning glow at a pre-ESPYs event last week. So imagine our delight when the Being Mary Jane actress told us she achieved it completely on her own.

“I can do my own hair and makeup and not look completely crazy!” she told PEOPLE. “[But] you just don’t have that same confidence as if a professional did it. My friends were on watch all night.”

She also relies on her friends for makeup advice before she gets to the event. “Sanaa Lathan is one of my best friends, and she believes there’s no such thing as too much blush,” Union shared, so that night, “I used a Sanaa trick where I used a ton of blush. Provided it’s not too deep for your skin tone, your face can generally hold more [color] in a well-lit area, like a red carpet.”

We can help you buy her bikinis – the body, we can’t do anything for. Famous for her rock-hard figure, Jessica Alba always looks flawless while enjoying a day at the beach. So how does she manage to stay stylish even when basking in the sun? The actress let’s us in on her summer essentials.

1. Kick off your heels and slip on some flats! “I’m always on the go during the summer, so I love shoes like Jenni Kayne’s D’Orsay flats,” says the mom of two, “They’re light and easy to [take off]—that way I can jump right into playing with my girls.”

2. Buy more than one pair of these vibrant shades from Knockaround because, Alba advises “they come in a ton of great colors and, if they get lost at the beach, they are not too expensive to replace.”

3. Invest in a chic cover-up. Sure, this Tory Burch caftan is a bit pricy, but it’s like three outfits in one (plus you’re saving on the sunglasses!). “This a great summer cover-up because it allows you to easily transition from the pool, to an afternoon lunch, to alfresco dinner,” Alba explains. “Super-chic and easy to wear.”

May/27/2013 at 06:00 AM ET
