Kate Winslet shares beauty products with her daughter.

The mother-of-three - who has children Mia, 13, Joe, 10 and one-month-old son Bear - loves lending her teenage daughter make-up for special occasions and helping her get ready.

She said: ''I lend my daughter beauty products, but only as a treat. If she's going to a party I'll let her borrow a mascara or moisturiser. She's only 13 and I always reminder her how lucky she is to be using mummy's things.''

The 38-year-old star is far less self-conscious these days and thinks it's more important to be comfortable and confident on the red carpet than trying to look stylish.

Kate admitted: ''I used to worry about how I looked, but as I've gotten older, it doesn't matter to me what people think. It's all about feeling comfortable. There's nothing worse than stepping out onto the red carpet wearing an outfit you know could go wrong at any minute.

''I see photographs of myself when I wasn't 100 per cent happy and I look like crap. My skin and eyes seem tired - there wasn't a light coming from inside. Beauty definitely comes from inner happiness.''

However, the actress always tries to experiment with her tresses before a big occasion, but leaves it to the professionals because she has had her fair share of hair disasters in the past.

Kate said: ''I love trying new things with my tresses. Hairdressers know better than I do, so I leave it to them as long as it's not too 'coiffed'. I had a French braid in my hair recently for an event and I loved it.

''It was funny taking it out though - my husband, Ned [Rocknroll], and I were over the sink trying to work out which bits were extensions and what was hair. I was cutting bits, saying, 'Hang on, was that mine? Oops, I just cut my own hair.' ''
