Jonathan Van Ness's hobbies include but are not limited to: gymnastics, ice skating, spending time with their many pets, learning new things on their Netflix show "Getting Curious With Jonathan Van Ness," bonding with their fellow "Queer Eye" costars, and, of course, doing hair. This is all to say he is very busy.

That's why partnering with same-day-delivery brand Shipt was a no-brainer for them. "I've used Shipt to get me out of a pinch so many times," Van Ness tells POPSUGAR. As a self-proclaimed "forgetter" with a lot on their plate, having access to all of their favorite products from Sephora, which is now available via the app, is a game changer. He's used it for everything from traveling to restocking on product while filming "Queer Eye."

Ahead, get a peek into Van Ness's beauty routine and see their must-have products across hair, makeup, and skin care to have on hand at all times.

Jonathan Van Ness's Makeup Routine For "Queer Eye"

For "Queer Eye," Van Ness almost always gets himself ready before coming to set. "It takes me like an hour, because I have to do my beard, and a blow-dry, and my makeup," they say. Their hour-plus glam routine includes showering, shaving and reshaping their beard, doing their full skin-care routine, and then moving on to makeup.

Van Ness uses the Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation ($42) with the Power Play Concealer ($30) for their base. For brows, he loves the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow ($21). They'll also use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer ($28) to add some color to their hairline and around the edge of the face.

Their getting-ready routine is also one of their favorite forms of self-care, so the more time spent pampering, the better.

Jonathan Van Ness's Favorite Skin-Care Products

Van Ness may be a hairstylist, but their passion for skin care runs deep. One of his favorite products is the Fenty Skin Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum With Niacinamide ($30). "I'm a big fan of niacinamide as an ingredient," they say. "We also feature it in our JVN Hair Complete Instant Recovery Heat Protectant Leave-In Serum ($28)."

Another favorite is the Tatcha The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser ($36). "That rice powder wash is next level," Van Ness says. "Coming into springtime, because the weather starts to change — I get a little bit sweatier, it's starting to get a little hotter, more humid — I like a little bit deeper of a cleanse."

Their third must have is the Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter ($28). "It looks natural, but it gives you your bang for your buck, so I love that," Van Ness says.
