Unlike some celebrities, like the Kardashians, it’s not every day that Awkwafina shares her beauty tips or products she can’t live without. Recently, however, the multifaceted actor, comedian and rapper revealed some of his makeup and skincare must-haves for Pace June issue – including her sunscreen and the luxe eye cream she loves. On top of that, she also shared some beauty secrets that she’s learned over the years while being in the limelight.
“If you have mascara on your eyelid, wait for it to dry to clean it off,” Awkwafina told Best Beauty Tip magazine she learned while sitting in the makeup chair. As for the best advice she learned outside from the makeup chair? “Disposable toilet seat covers (preferably unused) can be used for cleaning the face. Hey, don’t pretend you haven’t thought about it, folks.
When it comes to Awkwafina’s must-have beauty products, they really run the gamut. When it comes to makeup, she’s a huge fan of the Nars Smooth and Protect face primer, and she says her favorite makeup colors to wear are taupe, brown, and gold. When it comes to skin care, the actor keeps his routine pretty simple, but she never forgets to use sunscreen. Right now, the one she’s looking for is Beautycounter’s Countersun SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Lotion.
While Awkwafina’s skin care regimen is largely very low-maintenance and quite inexpensive, there are a category where she splurges – and that’s eye cream. Case in point: her current favorite is Sisleÿa L’Integral eye and lip cream from Sisleÿ Paris, which costs $ 225.
At night, Awkwafina’s routine consists of four steps: makeup removal, cleansing, serum and moisturizer. And get this: she credits Pace editor-in-chief Michelle Lee for teaching her skin care just a few years ago.
It goes without saying, but it is clear that everything Awkwafina does is working in its favor. To shop for the star’s beloved beauty products, keep scrolling.
