Plump it like Kim Kardashian

According to StyleList, the youthful reality TV star uses Fusion Beauty's Illumifill Line Filling Luminizer - a face primer that also helps to plump up lines and wrinkles. Get it for $49 at amazon.com.


Braid it like Kristen Stewart

The Twilight star attended the New York premier of the Eclipse sequel, sporting a casual yet elegant braided updo. According to MTV Style, Fekkai Celebrity Stylist, Adir Abergel blow-dried her hair without using a brush, styled it in a French side braid, and pulled out some strands at the end for a more relaxed look.

Detox like Jessica Simpson

The famously yoyo-ing singer has had enough of her weight fluctuations and has enlisted the 'master healer,' Ming Yi Wang, to help her stay slim and healthy. According to Celebrity Beauty Buzz, her daily routine now includes a mug of hot water in the morning, followed by the insanely expensive Pu-erh tea ($1,500 for a bit more than 200 grams) - meant to expel toxins - throughout the day. Whether it's the tea or the combination of a vegan diet and almost daily 45-minutes work-outs that are also part of the healer's plan, remains to be seen.
