"As quick and natural as possible": Kate Hudson divulges her beauty secrets

Considering she undoubtedly has a bevy of hair and make-up stylists at her disposal for every red carpet event, Kate Hudson's recent admission is pleasantly surprising.

The Hollywood star revealed to US magazine People that she sometimes does her own make-up for premieres.

What's more, she even helps glam her lucky friends up.



"I love putting make-up on friends. I do it all the time. If I'm bringing them to a premiere, or we're having a party, they'll all come over early and I'll do their makeup. I love it," she said.

Saying that on a daily basis she is "as quick and natural as possible", she also divulged her three basics: lip gloss, mascara and a foundation that "I can just put on like lotion".

As for the mascara, she revealed that she finds sometimes "if you feel like you're looking a little tired, an extra coat can be good. It's almost more important to me than bringing powder."

For her night time look, Kate opts to play up her eyes.

"If I had the Angelina Jolie or Scarlett Johansson lips," she adds, "I'd probably have a lot more fun with lips.

"But I concentrate more on my eyes. It depends on every face – and that’s what’s so fun about being a girl."
