Nicole Kidman’s secrets to radiant skin, healthy curls and speedy makeup

Our obsession with Nicole Kidman, similarly to her beauty game, has stayed very strong over the years.

Because just the way we loved her in 2020’s The Undoing just as much as Moulin Rouge way back in 2001, we happen to find her just as (if not more) radiant, gorgeous and skin-spirational now as she was then.

Sure, she happens to rock a smooth blowout a little more often than her natural curls on red carpets these days, and we love that version of her too, but we’re also very interested in what happens when her hair’s natural, her skin bare and her makeup natural. Because it’s crystal clear that Nicole really knows how to take care of herself, and her face is a literal glowing endorsement for her beauty routine.

Luckily, she has shared quite a few pearls of low-maintenance beauty wisdom over the years, and we’ve found some real winners to bless you with. Here are Nicole’s skin care, hair and makeup secrets, from product recommendations to gems of genius advice…


Stay strong with SPF

“As a fair-skinned girl, I’ve worn sun cream since I was a kid,” Nicole told Harper’s BAZAAR. “I wear Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF on my face every day.”

Always take your makeup off

“I was taught to take off all of my makeup every night, but if I’ve been working all day I’ll use a cleansing wipe to make it quick and easy,” she explained via Harper’s BAZAAR. “They’re great for traveling because you can get them through security.”

Nourish from within

“I really believe in taking vitamins and supporting my skin with inside health,” she shared with Allure. “My nails are probably the worst part of me – they’re always breaking – so  I use this amazing skin, hair, and nails vitamin from Swisse Wellness, and it’s really changed them.”

Keep curls hydrated

I have naturally curly hair, and [if I have time] I’ll air-dry it. For curls without frizz, I use Kérastase Discipline Oléo-Curl and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream,” she told Harper’s BAZAAR.

Rely on multitasking makeup

“I don’t have a lot of room in my bag, but I always try to have an all-in-one product. I use Benefit Benetint on my lips and cheeks,” Nicole shared via Allure.

Embrace luxe and less skin care

“La Mer Crème is my go-to, but I also love Aquaphor,” Nicole told Allure of her favourite hydrating formulas. “[Aquaphor] costs nothing and it’s amazing for dry skin, which I have. I put it on my face and it’s very, very good.”

  1. I never thought of the fact that wipes can be carried in your hand luggage. I guess its been that long since I've been on a plane. I wouldn't mind trying the Kerastase product. I do have some Moroccanoil products to use.

  2. And that Swisse Hair Skin Nails, I’m pretty confident that it works. I was taking it daily, and my weak and splitting nails were looking so much better. I ran out and I keep forgetting to buy some more, and my poor nails are back to what they were.

  3. I have used Benetint and I really liked it. It’s a great multi purpose product. I also absolutely love La Mer. I’ve had samples of it over the years. There’s no way I could afford to pay that for a daily moisturiser though, so I’ll stick with my trusty Kiehl’s for now.

  4. I love Nicole, I've always thought she was fabulous. I discovered the Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream a few years ago and absolutely agree that it's one of the best things for my curly hair. It leaves it with soft curls (not hard and crunchy) but not frizz!

  5. Seems like Nicole Kidman uses Neutrogena Sunscreen as well as the Cancer Councils Sensitive 50+ Sunscreen.
    Seems she does much more to her Skin than just Sunscreen and Moisturisers.

  6. I have come to love Neutrogena spray on sunscreen but not suitable for the face. The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Lotion SPF50 that Nicole uses sounds great so I will look out for it. Need something for me face to use often so I need something that fits within the budget too
