Sarah Jessica Parker: I steal beauty tips

Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker sometimes doesn't bother drying her hair before she goes to bed, instead letting "the chips fall where they may".

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker uses a "crafty" approach when trying to discover other women's beauty philosophies.

Thanks to her glowing complexion the Sex and the City star looks youthful at 50, which she normally highlights with natural-looking make-up. Sarah doesn't follow any mantras to look so good though, instead relying on tips from females whose appearances she is in awe of.

"I don't think I have one," she told People magazine when asked if she has any beauty beliefs. "I learn a lot from other women and I try to be crafty about asking them. But I'm pretty good about washing my face, even when I'm tired. My husband (actor Matthew Broderick) is always like, 'What does it matter?' because he has perfect skin. And I also wear fragrance-free moisturiser and SPF30 on my face and body."

Sarah's gorgeous locks are another area of envy, with the star often wearing them in loose waves at showbiz events. However, she doesn't give them much attention away from the spotlight, especially during downtime with her children James, 13, and six-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Marion.

"I can't do my hair," Sarah laughed. "I shower and I go to sleep with my head wet, and I let the chips fall where they may. I think I'm like most women in (that) I do what I have to do to get the kids out the door and be presentable at a meeting. Practicality dictates. And every now and then you're in a skilled hairdresser's very capable hands and you can just read a book, and that's nice."

Occasionally, Sarah will impress with extravagant headpieces by Philip Treacy, such as the mohawk look she rocked at the 2013 Met Gala. The star lets her little girls try them on every now and then, but has to be careful they don't damage the accessories.
