It’s almost Mother’s Day (please tell us you shopped our gift guide for any budget?), and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up the beauty lessons we’ve learned from the entertainment industry’s coolest mums.

Click through our slideshow for 9 beauty lessons to learn from these famous mums.
The Mum: The 6-feet-tall American model is one of the original supermodels. By that we mean she was a household name, covered every major magazine from Vogue to Cosmopolitan, and married a rock star (Mick Jagger).
The Look: Long blonde hair, red lips, and cat-eye liner.
The Beauty Lesson: Find out what works for you and stick to it!
The Mum: Hawn perfected the technique of physical comedy in a range of blockbuster rom-coms like Overboard, Private Benjamin, and Death Becomes Her. She’s also the poster girl for the blonde hair and full lash look of the late ‘60s in her show Laugh-In.
The Look: Tan skin, a mop of bright blonde hair, full lashes, and nude lips.
The Beauty Lesson: A sun-kissed glow will always make you look fresh and vibrant. Try our favourite new self-tanner here!
The Mum: Jane Birkin is an English actress and singer who lives in Paris. She’s most famous for her relationship with French singer Serge Gainsbourg during the late ‘60s. (She’s also the namesake to Hermes’ iconic Birkin bag.)
The Look: Lived-in “French girl” hair texture, blunt bangs, defined lashes, and a natural flush.
The Beauty Lesson: Bangs and bedhead are utterly cool. Period.
The Mum: Lipton is an actress/model famous for her role in the late ‘60s original T.V. show Mod Squad. She also released chart-topping singles and married Quincy Jones.

The Beauty Lesson: Take care of your skin, it’s the foundation for every beauty look!

The Beauty Lesson: Healthy, sleek locks are beautiful, no matter what your age.
