Jessica Alba's mother used to practice her make-up applying skills on her young daughter.

The stunning actress - who is the current face of Revlon cosmetics - says she regularly used to have a full face of cosmetics from the age of 10 because her mum was training to be a beautician.

She said: "She was going to cosmetology school and she needed a model to practice on! It was for the swim team picture - full on winged eyeliner, the works."

Jessica is now often voted one of the world's most naturally beautiful women and says her everyday make-up routine doesn't consist of much.

She said: "I use concealer, Revlon's cream blush and a light tinted base or moisturiser."

For a red carpet look, Jessica vamps up her look with dark lipstick.

She told Company magazine: "That's my thing - a dark lip!"

The 29-year-old beauty recently admitted she can put her look together in five minutes after learning to adjust her regime since becoming a mother two years ago.

She said: "My beauty regime has changed so much since becoming a mother.

"I've learnt to multitask and throw my look together in five minutes. I love make-up that I can apply with my finger tips, as it saves time."
