We caught up with Oscar-nominated actress and Lancome Ambassador Kate Winslet, who dished on her beauty tips and tricks.

For Kate, it's all about feeling confident, looking natural and living life fully (delving into guilty pleasures like chocolate in moderation). But even the Hollywood star has her off days -- when traveling she admits to relying on sunglasses. "You can hide a multitude of sins by throwing on a pair of dark shades," she said.

Another interesting tidbit -- Kate hasn't worked out since October! " I don't want to be obsessed with how I look. I want to really enjoy being out there - these moments because they might not come around again."

And, her favorite out-the-door must? Lancome Definicils Mascara, of course. "It is really, really idiot proof. You can build with it and it doesn't flake."
