    The celeb recently shared one particularly savvy trick, which most people with periods will probably find useful. In a recent interview with Allure, Kate explained how she learned to adjust her foundation shades during different stages of her menstrual cycle, after noticing changes to her skin.

    "Depending on my cycle, my skin can be a little bit more inflamed. Do you know what I mean?" she said, noting that her skin "is a lot more even" at the beginning of the cycle, whereas "everything fires up a little bit" toward the middle.

    Kate said that she accommodates the changes by combining makeup shades. "I mix a couple of tones," she continued.

    The actor's makeup tips aren't necessarily rooted in a desire to improve her physical appearance, but part of her push develop a healthy relationship with aging, and the shifts that come with it.

    "I've noticed my face and how it's changing a little bit more in the last year because there's just been more time with yourself to look at those things," she said. "What I've found is that —  to my relief —  I'm just going easy on myself. I'm at an age now where things are changing all the time."
