Want to get glowing like Shakira [1]? InStyle [2] has her top beauty secret!

The sultry singer just released her tenth studio album yesterday, her new music video, "Can't Remember to Forget You," [3] with Rihanna [4] has been burning up on Vevo and she's a guest judge on The Voice this season. Even with so much going on, Shakira [5] always manages to look flawless, so we sat down with the multitasking globetrotter and drilled her for a few of her beauty tricks. Here's the scoop:

Your skin always look perfect, what's your secret?
A good way to prep your skin is to use a vitamin C serum, it does wonders — especially when my skin gets dehydrated. If I'm superdry, I also layer on vitamin E — I just get capsules from the pharmacy and squeeze it right onto my skin. I also think its really important to remove your makeup every night and I using a cleansing brush (or even a washcloth) to remove any impurities.

We heard that you do your own [6] makeup usually — impressive! What tricks have you picked up?
Keep it simple. I usually wear a natural color on my lips and accent my eyes. I feel like the less makeup I use, the better I look. After so many years in front of the camera, sometimes, I think I look better now than 10 years ago when I wore so much! It's important to let your own skin shine through.

What's your best beauty tip?
Wear sunscreen and smile! A good smile shows off confidence and that's really the best makeup. I take good care of my teeth and when I knew the campaign with Crest 3D White (Shakira [7] is a spokeswoman for the brand) was around smiling and promoting smiling, I thought it was the perfect fit — it really goes with my life philosophy. I'm such a smiler that sometimes photographers have to ask me to stop and give more a serious or sexy look!
