POPSUGAR: What are your beauty essentials?

Carmen Carrera: I have this really old-school chrome glass from MAC, and I like to mix that with my lip balm. Then, I like to use a little bit of the OCC Lip Tar’s (like a drop) if I want to change the color. I used to be a makeup artist, so I have experience with mixing and creating. And of course, I love a good waterproof mascara because it’s the only thing that holds a curl. And my skin care of course — Kiehl's!

PS: When do you feel most beautiful?

CC: When I wake up in the morning! Because it’s fresh, and it’s me. There’s a mirror next to my bed and I see who I see in my mind. I don’t have to wake up in the morning and shave or do that stuff that I hated to do. I wake up in the morning, my hair's a mess, and that’s fine. I love to just be at home and be a regular girl; that’s like the best part of my day.
