The former Bachelorette jokes that her thorough mascara routine is the reason her 5-year-old daughter is late for preschool every day
You’re used to seeing the Bachelorette stars ready for a rose ceremony, but in their day-to-day life, they don’t have time for the most Dramatic. Makeup. Ever. So in addition to past stars sharing their makeup-free selfies, DeAnna Stagliano walked us through her typical morning beauty routine, which she said she’s got down to an art thanks to the morning rush involved with having a preschooler and a toddler at home.
Some of Stagliano’s revelations from her makeup tutorial? First and foremost, you can never have too much blush. “I’m a lady from the South, the more blush, the better, if you ask me!”
She also relates to these celebrities who have eyebrow plucking-related regrets. “I’m sure a lot of you can relate to suffering from years and years of overplucking, overtweezing. I follow my brows’ natural line – I’m trying to make them thicker, the fluffier the better would be really awesome.”
On the “so relatable” front, Stagliano admits, “I don’t know what it is about eyeliner and mascara but it always seems to be a bit easier to do it with your mouth open.”
She also swears by a few affordable beauty products that many of us might already have at home. “I always keep Q-tips laying around too help with any mistakes,” she says. “They are my best friend.”
Her fave mascara is also a drugstore pick: “I have been using this mascara [tempo-ecommerce src="https://www.ulta.com/lashblast-volume-mascara?productId=xlsImpprod481642" title="CoverGirl's LashBlast" context="body"] for years and years and years. I’ve used really expensive mascara, I have tried it all, and this is by far my favorite.” She also jokes that her extremely thorough mascara application “could be part of the reason why Addison is always late to preschool!”
The finishing touch? A swipe of NYX’s Butter Gloss in “Angel Food Cake,” currently available for $2.98, which she says she wears every day and loves because it’s long-lasting and “looks pretty!”
