No wonder she always looks so fresh-faced! Dakota Johnson recently divulged her daily beauty routine, and it's shockingly minimal. She also shared a trick or two for how to get amazing eyes, and we're totally going to add it to our regimen.


The Fifty Shades of Grey actress shared her beauty hacks with Glamour magazine, and we were sure it would've included a lot more steps, considering how flawless her complexion is. As it turns out, Dakota doesn't do much to her skin, including covering it up.

More from CafeMom:

"I'm a sucker for pretty packaging, so I buy a bunch of products but end up not using any of them," she divulged. "I just like the way they look. I truly have the simplest routine: I wash my face in the morning and at night, then moisturize; during the day I add sunscreen. Right now I'm into Lancer products."

She added, "I don't really wear makeup if I don't have to. When I am going out somewhere, I'll use a little concealer, lip color, and mascara."

Speaking of mascara, Dakota shared the genius trick that her grandmother Tippi Hedren taught her to get to most out of that wand. "She was watching me put my mascara on once and told me that if you hold the mirror down low and put the mascara on while looking downward, you will get the most coverage from the base of the lashes to the tips," the 27-year-old explained. "And, of course, she's right! She's a f-cking movie star; she's a legend!"

That's not the only eye trick she shared either. Apparently she's addicted to eye drops. "Hello, I'm Dakota, and I'm addicted to eye drops; the last time I used was 20 minutes ago. Really, I'm addicted to eye drops ... I just love the feeling of them in my eyes. It's glorious."

There you have it! Sounds like a great hack for sparkling eyes and full, lush lashes.
