Jessica Alba uses her Honest Beauty makeup as a bargaining tool when her two daughters, Honor and Haven, are fighting.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Jessica Alba’s daughters are obsessed with her Honest Beauty makeup.

The 34-year-old actress and entrepreneur launched The Honest Company’s cosmetics line last month (Sep15).

And as she attended Honest Beauty’s pop up shop at The Grove in Los Angeles on Thursday (01Oct15), Jessica spoke about how seven-year-old Honor and four-year-old Haven are huge fans of the collection.

In fact, they are so taken with the range that Jessica has even started using it as a bargaining tool when they start arguing.

“My girls are in my makeup all day long,” Jessica told People. “They love putting it on me. Whenever they’re fighting, I’m like, ‘Stop yelling at each other and I’ll let you put my lipstick on!’ ”

Jessica has already found huge success with The Honest Company. And with her new beauty range, the actress wanted to ensure the line of skincare and cosmetics only uses safe ingredients.

It was becoming a mother that first encouraged Jessica to explore the use of natural ingredients.

“I discovered chamomile and calendula when I had Honor,” Jessica said. “They smell good and they take down inflammation. So we put a lot of that in our skincare.

“My grandmother loved aloe. Anytime I had anything wrong with me, she would come in with a green hand and smear it on me. I used to hate it as a kid, but now it’s a fond memory.”

Jessica is known for her stunning appearance whether it’s on the red carpet or out and about running errands.

While she prefers a “no makeup makeup” look for everyday life, she can also turn to her own range of cosmetics when it comes to preparing for a star-studded occasion.

“Whether it’s for mums on the go who want makeup with staying power, or for someone who wants to really go glam, these products can do both,” Jessica added.
