Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields admits she wears more make-up now than she has ever done before, and it’s mainly down to her daughters.

The actress is known for her natural beauty and statement eyebrows, but her kids want her to pay more attention to her appearance.

The 49 year old, who has daughters Rowan, 11, and Grier, eight, with husband Chris Henchy, mainly associated cosmetics with her work so never used them much in her spare time, but has since changed her outlook.

Speaking to People magazine she said: "When I was younger, it was such a job for me, so I would just wash it off the minute I was done with the job.

"Now my daughter insists that I put makeup on when I take her to school. 'Mom, please, at least put a little mascara on. And some lip gloss. And some blush.' It's like, 'Anything else?' So I definitely try to pay more attention."

We can hardly imagine that the brunet beauty needs to apply much though.

Brooke also revealed her most unusual beauty trip - snorting after administering eye-brightening drops so as not to spoil make-up.

She explained: "When you put eye drops in, quickly breathe in through your nose because it sucks it back in and it won't ruin your make-up.

"You sound like a drug addict, but it pops right back in and your eye make-up doesn't smear."
