Four Celebrity Experts Share Top Beauty Resolutions Everyone Should Make

If there’s anyone we’ll blindly follow for beauty advice, it’s the folks who get paid to make professional pretty people look their best. Since this month’s all about committing to better beauty habits, we’ve asked four insiders to share the top resolutions we should all make right now.

From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s favorite facialist to one of Jessica Alba’s favorite makeup artists, these four celebrity-approved experts are here to get your beauty routines back on track for 2017. Read on for their must-follow tips and a few of their product recommendations (if it’s good enough for Rosie H-W, it’s good enough for us!)

Celebrity clients: Jessica Alba, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Ali Larter, Olivia Palmero
Resolution: “Properly hydrate & nourish the skin before makeup! Great makeup begins with good skincare practices. In these wintery, cold months, Honest Beauty’s new Everything Organic Facial Oil not only hydrates but it helps protect skin from environmental factors, providing a more balanced complexion to work with in the new year!”
Product pick: Honest Beauty Everything Organic Facial Oil, $55

Tracylee Percival, Celebrity Manicurist and Dior Beauty Ambassador


Celebrity clients: Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Cameron Diaz
Resolution: “Whether you wear natural nails, gel polish, or nail enhancements, cuticle oil massaged into your cuticles daily will not only keep your cuticle area hydrated but will absorb through the cuticle completely to hydrate the nail itself. Cuticle oil is my No. 1 recommendation for healthy nails, regardless of what you have on them.”

Kennedy Van Dyke, RA_Bar Beauty Co-Founder and Hair Artist

Celebrity clients: Jenna Dewan Tatum, Lydia Hearst, Michelle Trachtenberg
Resolution:  “The top ‘do’ is to enhance the dimension in your hair color! Whether you are blonde, brunette, or red — 2017’s new trend is Velvet Hair. Think depth and light to create a velvety rich over all tone.

What not to do? Don’t let your hair get in the way of your New Year workout routine! Use Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair Dry Shampoo to bring back your blowout. Also, to keep your color from fading from more frequent shampooing ask your colorist for a gloss in between appointments.”
Product pick: Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair Dry Shampoo, $29.50 at professional salons
