What does hip-hop queen Eve rely on to stay beautiful and stylish? At the taping of her music video for her new single “Tambourine” off her latest album Here I Am due out in August, the self-described ‘pitbull in a skirt’ dished to PEOPLE on her summer must-have fashion and beauty items. But there was one category where she refused to brand-bargain: her MAC makeup. “I use everything from MAC, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a spokesperson. I swear!” To get Eve’s Look, get these items from MAC’s C-Shock Collection. She’s wearing: Overrich and Vivacious Lipstick, $14; She-book! and Lil’ Sizzler Lipgelee, $14; Wondergrass, Big T, and Bong-On Blue Eyeshadows, $14.
