(Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty Images North America)When Michelle Trachtenberg talks makeup, we listen. The star of Gossip Girl and Harriet the Spy (!) has some of the most desirable porcelain skin around—trust us, it's even better in person. We caught up with the 28-year old last week to chat her absolute beauty must-haves.
Trachtenberg's beauty go-to list was surprisingly short but extremely necessary. Her secret to achieving that flawless, fair skin look is a great foundation. Trachtenberg religiously uses Kevyn Aucoin foundation. "I live for it," she said. "I love it!"
As for eyes, Trachtenberg is like any other sensible makeup fiend: she loves sparkles. "I love me a gold shimmer eyeshadow." And to compliment that gorgeous, New Year's Eve-ready eye, Trachtenberg said she loves Lancome's Artliner and has used it for years.
But the one product she admits she just can't leave the house without is undoubtedly mascara. Namely drugstore mascara. "I never like to spend $40 for something you have to switch out so often," she said. "And I switch out my mascara every few weeks, because I wear it every day!"
Looks like Michelle Trachtenberg loves a good deal as much as the next gal. We're also digging drugstore mascara. See our picks for our faves, below:
