Garcelle Beauvais and her gorgeous cheekbones are set to make history Wednesday in her debut as the first Black housewife to star in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Hype Hair chatted it up with the actress earlier this year for our March cover story about why she chose to make the move.
“It’s a huge platform,” she said. “Also, being the first African American [cast member], I get to put my stamp on it. And who I am, I am a hands-on mom, that’s the most important thing to me. I’m an actor, I’m a friend.”
Now that the show is set to air and we’ve seen all the behind-the-scenes of her filter-free and fresh slay, we also had to find out about her flawless beauty regimen. It turns out the actress and author, doesn’t swear by any magic serums or I-wish-I-could-afford-that beauty secrets.
Instead, she credits her natural glow to a no-fuss approach. “I really use a lot of basic products,” she says. As far as hair, she says it’s just about using the “right shampoo, deep conditioning and trying not to abuse it too much [with] blow-drying and flat ironing.”
The less-is-more mantra applies to the rest of her regimen, including a few beauty basics many of us already have in our toiletry closets. Click through to get into her must-haves.
