Salma Hayek opens up about all things beauty in the new Allure Magazine!

Salma Hayek is Allure Magazine’s September cover girl. The actress opens up about all things beauty, including her skin, her bust and her beauty line. She also opens up about the awkwardness of filming love scenes and being bullied as a child.

Read on!

Salma on her skin: Hayek has worked for her astonishingly young-looking skin. “My career has given me a lot of experience to be under pressure of having to be beautiful, and having to look for tricks to make it work,” says the actress.

She‘s all natural: Hayek believes in fighting aging—up to a point. “I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth,” she says. But not by becoming overly surgified by celebrity dermatologists. “It’s like the uniform of a generation,” Hayek says. “And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful. I’ve never had anything done on my face,” Hayek insists. “I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing.”

Salma on her boobs: Ask Hayek whether any part of her body looked better ten years ago, and she’ll tell you. “My boobs,” she says with a laugh. “They’re not bad, by the way. I’m not complaining about them.” She famously breast-fed a hungry infant in Sierra Leone, where she was promoting a UNICEF initiative to eradicate tetanus. “If you have milk, you have milk, and if they’re hungry, they’re hungry,” she says. “I think it’s a beautiful thing, because motherhood is a very strong place for women to connect and understand each other.”

Confidence: “As a woman, you should be more at ease with your sexuality when you are in your 40s,” she says. “You are more self-assured about that part. And that’s the way it should be. If you are a girl who cannot walk in heels, it doesn’t matter how beautiful you are,” she says. “If you look like a chicken that’s been spiked in the feet, it’s not going to be sexy.”

Bullied at an early age: “I got teased because I was too short, or I was too brown,” she says. (Her complexion is the legacy of her father, a businessman of Lebanese descent.) “You would think in Mexico that would be something normal, but I did get teased,” she says.

Filming love scenes: Hayek first became known in America with Desperado, an action movie starring Antonio Banderas. A love scene between them took eight hours to film rather than the scheduled one hour because of Hayek’s reluctance. “I’m not an exhibitionist,” she says. “It was the first time, so it was very difficult.”

Hayek on her daughter, being rich: Hayek says of her daughter, who speaks English, Spanish, and French: “I never understood the point of being privileged if you don’t get to have the privileges. Like, people who won’t take their kids to an expensive restaurant, or won’t travel with them, or make them pay for everything at a really young age. I think it’s important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it’s great that my daughter gets to travel the world.”

On her beauty line: Hayek’s beauty line is in many ways a tribute to her grandmother, who studied to be a beautician and made potions for government officials and their wives. “She started working on my skin when I was 12 or 13,” Hayek says. “I never used soap on my face. Once, she shaved our heads and put egg on it and all these things. But I have to give her credit—my hair is great.” Hayek believes that it’s possible to offer beauty products that will encourage women’s strengths rather than make them anxious about their weaknesses. “I’m [creating this line] with the philosophy that within you there is beauty, and you have to learn how to find it and enhance it in a natural way…. One thing that is exciting about being a woman is that you can rediscover your beauty over and over and over.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt steps out with new hair!

Jennifer Love Hewitt stepped out yesterday afternoon with a new haircut! She also Tweeted the above picture and wrote “New dark hair and new cut! Fun right?” before hitting up Madison boutique in West Hollywood where she shopped the afternoon away.

While showing off her new ‘do, she showed off her curves in a see-through skirt.

The curvy brunette recently made headlines for going on a date with Bachelorette contestant Ben Flajnik.

“She began pursuing him right after the finale aired,” a source tells Us Weekly of the Can’t Hardly Wait actress, 32.

Indeed, Hewitt hasn’t been shy about showing her love for the 28-year-old winemaker, who placed second behind JP Rosenbaum on The Bachelorette’s August 1 finale. “Omg! Ben f except my final rose!!! Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)” Hewitt tweeted August 2. And when the pair cozied up at San Francisco’s Lion’s Pub four days later, the actress was similarly smitten.

Though Flajnik initially stopped by the bar with San Francisco Giants player Cody Ross, he made a beeline for Hewitt after spotting her from across the room.

“It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” an eyewitness tells Us. “Loving the attention,” Hewitt tended to fans at the bar during her date, but had all eyes on Flajnik by night’s end. “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside,” confirms the source.

What do you think of her new hair?

Rockin’ the Red With Makeup to Match‏

ROCKIN’ THE RED
Make-up to Match Your Ginger Color

We all know the saying, “Blondes have more fun.” Well, a new phrase is taking over: “Reds are more rad.” Going red is a bold and daring move and with these six steps from celebrity makeup artist Amy Hollier of Luxe Beauty Team at Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, you can rock the red with the perfect make-up to match your vixen look.

Step 1: Prime Eyelids

To start, use a light brown or copper cream shadow (I used Mac paint pot in “Groundwork”) on eyelids and buff out with a fluffy eye shadow brush so nothing is in the crease.

Step 2: Eye shadow

Apply copper/gold shadow to inner half of eyelids closest to the tear ducts. Then apply a bronze/brown shadow to outer half of eyelids. Blend the crease with a clean, fluffy brush.

Step 3: Eyeliner

For a more fashion/editorial look, opt for a dramatic cat eyeliner but in a plummy brown rather than black. It’s much more wearable and accents red hair perfectly. Start by lining the lashline, then building the outer corners and extending out and up at the end of the lashline. Check eye to eye for balance. I used Bobbi Browns “Black Plum Ink” gel eyeliner with a pointed liner brush.

Step 4: Eyelashes

Curl, curl and curl. Then apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. Finish with 2 or 3 individual flares of false lashes on each outer corner.

Step 5: Gorgeous Skin

Wipe away any fallen eye shadow and moisturize entire face. Next apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (I used Mac Face & Body).

Next apply a little glow to the temples and cheekbones with a liquid or cream bronzer (I used Makeup Forever Uplight#23). Lightly dust the center of the face with translucent powder to set. Add a little soft peachy blush to cheeks (I love Smashbox soft lights tint).

Step 6: Lips

Finish the look with a tinted lip balm. I chose the Clinique Chubby Stick in “Whole Lotta Honey” for it’s beautiful golden nude color.
