The 'Twilight' actress has revealed she often shuns buying pricey beauty products and prefers to mix up her own moisturising creams by combining "five different kinds of oils" together instead.

She said: "With my skin, I like to start from scratch and really take care of it. I'm all about oils - I use a mixture of five and make my own lotions and things like that.

"I do my own eyebrows, so I'll double check that there are no crazy hairs or anything, things like that. If I'm going out for an event, then I'll put on more of a full face - I'll put on lashes, do my brows, and put on some actual foundation. But on a regular night out that's not for work, I am all about skin oils.

"I'm really into that process with my skin, I use like five different kinds of oils. I make all my body lotions by just mixing oils. I wash my face with soap and then use olive oil on my face."

The brunette beauty, 26, who recently wed 'The Vampire Diaries' star Ian Somerhalder, 36, was taught to make her own moisturisers by her mother, Cheryl, as they often couldn't afford to buy the products when she was growing up.

She told Into The Gloss: "We didn't have a lot of money growing up, so my mum taught me to put oil in water, shake it up, and when I got out of the shower, I would spray it over my entire body. It's the only true beauty ritual I have."
