Jennifer Aniston, who’s said she was a “dumpy teenager,” tells InStyle that it took “years of peeling back the onion to finally stop using makeup as a mask and feel comfortable in my own skin.” But that doesn’t mean the ever-gorgeous actress has shunned makeup entirely.

Discussing her favorite products, Aniston tells the magazine that Estée Lauder’s Automatic Lip Pencil Duo in fig (top left) can be mixed with “anything. I’ve used this … for god knows how many years,” she shares.

Also key is bronzer; the actress uses Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in terre amber (bottom right) to brighten her cheeks. “I like that it’s more brown, with twinkles in it,” she explains.

Aniston keeps her skin tone even with La Mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation (top right), but not before prepping her face with Dr. Hauschka Moisturizing Day Cream (bottom left). “I put this on after my serum and before my makeup,” she reveals.

But perhaps the most surprising product in Aniston’s beauty arsenal is her soap: Neutrogena’s $3 Original Facial Cleansing Bar. “I’ve been using this orange bar since high school,” she admits. “My philosophy is, the simpler the better.” Tell us: What’s in your makeup bag?
