April Fools'! The Best Celebrity Fashion and Beauty Tricks

TONED ARMS

Queen Bey certainly doesn't need the extra strength training, but her post-pregnancy style involved lots of three-quarter-length sleeves, which elongate arms and disguise any excess flab. 

STREAMLINED MIDSECTION

If you're worried about a little extra tummy peeking out from your jeans, opt for a high-waisted pair that will skim over any worrisome areas. Claudia Schiffer pairs hers with a plaid shirt for a casual look. 

SLIMMER THIGHS

For thighs that appear smaller than they are, choose a pair of wide leg trousers that draw attention downward, like Jennifer Hudson's sleek pair. 

TALLER

Pick a short dress in a solid color like Selena Gomez's here, to appear longer.

LONGER LEGS

For a long-stemmed look, pair nude pumps with bare legs to make them seem like they go on for miles. Choose a pair that matches your skin tone - a classic trick of the eye!

SLIMMER ALL OVER

A pair of plain, non-distressed, good ol' denim streamlines just about everything and won't draw attention to any insecurities. Reese Witherspoon knows what we're talking about! 

BIGGER EYES

Lauren Conrad must know that a classic cat-eye is the surest way to open up eyes and make them appear bigger than they are. 

DEFINED CHEEKBONES

Kim Kardashian is the queen of contouring, which is what cheekbones are all about. Use a contouring brush to sweep bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks, along your hair line, and over the bridge of your nose. Voila - instant cheekbones! 

SMALLER BUST

For a smaller-looking bust-line, wear a scoop-neck top like Sofia Vergara's. It draws attention upwards! 

SMALLER NOSE

Stars like Kaley Cuoco have admitted to learning this trick in the makeup artist's chair! Apply foundation one shade darker than you would normally wear to both sides of your nose and blends towards cheekbones. Then apply a highlighter to the bridge, which is the thinnest part of the nose, for an all-around slimmer look!
