7. Forget foundation.聽Instead of pore-clogging liquids and powders, the fashion girl keeps her face fresh 鈥 other than dabbing her聽all-time favorite concealer,聽Cl茅 de Peau Beaut茅 Concealer ($70), under her eyes.聽Richie told Coveteur, 鈥淚聽am all about a moisturizer, not foundation.鈥

8. Makeup should be minimalistic.

9. Eat clean and drink lots of drink water.聽Richie鈥檚 ultimate beauty hack is that she鈥檚聽a green devotee,聽growing her own veggies at home. As she聽told聽InStyle, 鈥淸T]he older I get, it鈥檚 more about what I鈥檓 putting in than what I鈥檓 putting on.鈥 Word. Test your green thumb 脿 la Richie with a Miracle-Gro AeroGarden Harvest Elite ($155).
