Umm, has anyone else noticed that The Bachelor girls are serving up some serious inspo on the beauty front? No? Just us? Bah, c'mon!

From the glowing skin and expertly curled lashes to the perfect hair and budge-proof mascara that can withhold the drama of getting dumped on national television - we want to know what they're slapping on their faces.

Listen to Mamamia's podcast for your face, You Beauty, where host Kelly McCarren interviews Instagram's queen of glowy skin, Alisha Bhojwani. Post continues below.

So, we cornered five Bachelor contestants and asked them *everything* we wanted to know about their skincare and makeup routine.

Bachelor Juliette's skincare routine

During the day, Juliette is all about upping her hydration game and protecting her skin from the effects of sun damage. "In the morning I use The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid serum and then apply MooGoo Natural Sunscreen Tinted SPF 40 - which is natural zinc. I then spray rosewater on my face for hydration," said Juliette.

"At night I remove any makeup with micellar water. I wash my face using Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser 12% and occasionally the exfoliating scrub. I apply The Ordinary Retinol serum, then sometimes argan, jojoba or rosehip oil to soothe and deeper hydrate skin overnight. I also like to use body washes that are natural, sulphate-free paraben-free. I love using oils or natural creams for moisturising my body."

One of Juliette's main skincare tips? "I drink a lot of water and stay out of the sun! This is an important step to keep my skin looking youthful." Note, taken!

Watch: Here are seven, simple ways to improve your skin while you sleep. Post continues below.

"I don’t like to look like I painted on make-up. I've been blessed with amazing skin, so I just try to enhance my eyes, lips, cheeks with a glowing dewy look," she said.

To enhance her eyes, Juliette says she gets lash extensions or reaches for a set of falsies. "I think lashes open your eyes so I usually use lash extensions which saves me time when I get ready (I used to spend 30 mins on curling and applying mascara as my lashes were long but straight). If I don’t have lash extensions, I have a collection of natural to dramatic lush fake lashes!" 

For that glowing, sun-kissed look she said, "I use a tiny amount of bronzer, blush and highlighter on my cheekbones. I don’t contour at all!" To finish the look, she likes to swipe on a bit lipstick or gloss. "I line my lips with either a natural colour, or red lip liner and blend it into my lip and apply a secret shiny gloss! I usually keep the lip a natural colour with orange, brown hues."

"For The Bachelor cocktail parties we had a beautiful, talented makeup team who worked on our looks. I was able to collaborate on the looks, so I started having more of a say on what kind of features I wanted to enhance. They are so good to us!"

The Bachelor star said she can't live without her lip gloss, a set of false lashes and a trusty eyebrow pencil ('cause guys, your eyebrows shape your entire face - so it's worth keeping 'em polished!).

"My skincare is pretty simple. The skin clinic I go to do all the hard work for me! I keep it simple, cleanser followed by a serum and then always an SPF during the day. I never leave the house without my sunscreen." Sunscreen on the daily? Go, you good thing! 

Irena said she also undergoes regular exfoliating treatments to keep her skin in check. "My go-to is a Dermasweep, followed by a session under the LED lights."

"I also take supplements to also help with my skin. I suffer from breakouts especially when I’m working heaps, so I get some extra help from my vitamins!"

"My favourite skincare is Lira Clinical skincare, I have been using their products for a number of years now. They are such amazing quality products and a little goes a long way," said Irena.

"My usual makeup routine is super simple as I’m always in a rush to get ready for work!" said Irena. "I am currently using Harlotte Cosmetics Afterglow Foundation, with a little of their cream blush on my cheeks. I always do my eyebrows and wear mascara. I don’t like heavy makeup because I break out and I like my skin to show," said Irena.

"On The Bachelor we are so lucky that we get the most amazingly talented makeup artists that do our makeup for cocktail nights. I learnt so much from the incredible ladies - they were kind enough to offer me some tips and tricks."

Bachelor Bella's skincare routine

"I use a range of products for my skincare routine but there are a few products that have always stayed prominent! My morning routine starts with my REN Gentle Cleansing Gel and my REN Ready Steady Glow Toner. I moisturise using Clinique's 72hour Moisture Surge and Fresh's Lotus Youth Preserve Under Eye Cream, finishing off with my La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen."

"My evening routine starts with removing my makeup using Clinique's Take The Day Off Balm followed by Go-To skincare's Properly Clean Foaming Cleanser (just to make sure my skin is squeaky clean), I scrub a few times a week using the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Scrub and I use my REN Toner again before moisturising. Some nights I'll use one of my Fresh masks or Sunday Riley's U.F.O, and other nights I'll moisturise using my Kiehl's Midnight Oil! It just depends on how my skin is feeling."

"Fresh Beauty has some of the most incredible masks," said Bella. "The Rose face mask is one of my all-time favourites and is one I used every week in The Bachelor mansion - it's hydrating, toning and is infused with real rose petals."

Nicole said if she's going all out and applying a full face of makeup, she'll usually stick to wearing nudes. "Nude eye shadows and lipsticks are my favourite, then for special occasions I’ll always add a nice fake eyelash. I don’t like wearing makeup when I don’t have to, so BB creams are my favourite for a bit of extra coverage!"

And as for her TV-ready makeup ~lewks~ on The Bachelor, she said, "We were super lucky! The HMUA’s were incredible. They always asked us what look we wanted for the night and would work with us as much as possible to achieve this!"
