We love spilling the 'T' on celebrity beauty secrets and techniques. So when we met some of the industry's top hair and makeup stylists at a cocktail party Thursday, we knew we'd have to get them to share the beauty knowledge wealth. Luckily they had tips galore! Check out these 5 cool pieces of advice straight from Hollywood's behind the scenes elite. Add them to your get-ready repertoire and let us know if they work for you too!

Sure super model Adriana Lima has killer good looks worthy of every centerfold she's graced, but even a Victoria Secret angel keeps a few secrets up her sleeve. Wonder how she makes her signature smoky eyes look red-hot every time? The secret is in the mascara. Our girl Erica Gonzalez gave us the scoop. "When women apply their mascara, they coat the underside of the upper lashes, but they forget to coat the top too," Erica said. "Make sure you add mascara here as well. It will cover up eyeshadow that might powder off and adds that extra smoked out flair you're after." Try L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara for $8.

The focal point of many a makeup look are the eyes. Who doesn't love to stare into a beautiful big pair of peepers? That amazing gaze so many celebs serve up at award shows and on photo shoots isn't without a few helpful enhancements, however.  Take the gorgeous green eyes of actress Scarlett Johansson. "To open eyes, actresses like Scarlett use a cream or white pencil on the bottom waterline," Erica dished. "This will instantly make eyes look bigger and brighter and it's a red carpet essential."
