Mother-daughter duo Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson are no strangers to the beauty routine, as evidenced by their glowing completions.
That being said, their approaches to their beauty routines couldn’t be more different.
Believe it or not, before Hudson starred in Almost Famous, she was actually after a career in makeup.
“When I was 4 or 5, I put makeup on our Maltese, Paula — some pink blush, a little pop of blue on her head,” Kate shared in a call that included her mother. “I thought, ‘She’s a girl. She wanted some color in her life!'”
Kate as a child would sit mother’s lap as makeup artist Tom Case would prep Goldie for her latest role.
“She put more lipstick on than I have ever seen in my life, so of course, she ends up representing Almay,” Goldie laughed.
And when it comes to beauty traditions passed along from the Hawn to Hudson lineage, Kate is happy to take a few holistic beauty tips from her mom.
“There are great creams out there. Creams with this and creams with that, but I ingest oil,” Goldie says.
“The skin is our biggest organ, and as you get older, you get drier. So I ingest two tablespoons of olive oil before bed and massage my face.”
And while Goldie and Kate are close, Kate shares how her mom is not the type to shell out unsolicited advice.
“Your children see as you do. You can give advice until the cows come home, but they don’t always hear you,” Goldie says. “They do remember what you do. Have good habits and have your children watch you take care of yourself.”
Hawn recently shared how going to doctors and psychologists to help learn about her brain and how to quiet her mind helped her and now, she believes that happiness is a “choice.”
“Happiness is an interesting thing, because it’s a state of mind,” she shared. “Happiness is something that we actually look at, we churn it like you churn butter and create butter and cream out of milk. You literally have to understand that happiness is a choice.”
Hawn has since created MindUp, which is a school program that began in 2003 and helps kids manage their stress and depression by focused breathing, sensory awareness, role-playing, and positive thinking.
“Don’t be embarrassed, mental health is real,” she added. “If I broke my arm, I would go to a doctor. If I fell and hurt my hip, I would go to a doctor. Our brains are an organ. There are things that we can [do to] help ourselves and doctors can help us. We should never be ashamed to say ‘I’m feeling sad.’”
