The 7 Makeup Products Kristen Bell Swears By For Glowing Skin

Like many moms, Kristen Bell has very limited mirror time. When she's not on set filming The Good Place, Veronica Mars, or Frozen II, the actress is chasing after her two adorable daughters, Delta and Lincoln, and running her natural baby line, Hello Bello. Most days, she only has about five minutes to get ready, according to her go-to makeup artist, Simone Siegl.

To fit her busy schedule, Siegl and Bell have curated the perfect multi-tasking makeup routine, which is comprised of a rosy cream blush that doubles as a lipstick, a moisturizing CC cream, and a spray sunscreen that she can toss into the side pocket of her purse. Ahead, Siegl breaks down Bell's everyday beauty must-haves. Whether you're also a busy mom juggling two kids — or just looking to streamline your summer routine — it's worth snagging her seven tips.

IT Cosmetics CC Cream

Bell's luxe skin-care routine might include $300 serums and creams, but her makeup picks are a little more affordable. "Kristen used to use a more expensive foundation," Siegl says. "But then we found the IT CC Cream in Light and it's the perfect dupe — she actually likes it better and now uses it every day."

IT Cosmetics You Sculpted Palette

"For bigger, on-camera events, I might use something buildable and dramatic, like a Charlotte Tilbury Palette," says Siegl. "But for everyday, Kristen really likes this IT Cosmetics Shade and Highlight palette. It has these nice, taupe-y shades for contour that don't have shimmer."

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in Pillow Talk

"For her eyes, Kristen and I both love this new Charlotte Tilbury shadow palette in Pillow Talk," says Siegl. "It has a lovely crease color and a pretty sparkly shade — all four are perfect for her skin tone and her bright blue eyes."

Browfood Tinted Brow Gel

To fill out her brows, Siegl brushes on a tinted gel by Lashfood's brow brand, Browfood. "We like this because the spoolie has little fibers in it, so it gives her brows a natural-looking, bushier shape," Siegl says.

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara

"For nighttime, I might us the Tom Ford Extreme, but the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes is definitely my favorite, and Kristen's, too. If she was in a real pinch, she would just use the IT CC cream and this mascara."

Tata Harper Lip & Cheek Tint

"Tata Harper makes a cream color you can put on lips and cheeks, and Kristen has the shade Very Popular in her purse at all times," says Siegl. "It gives a little freshness to her cheeks. She puts it on her lips, and sometimes even dabs it on her eyelids to give them a little something. It's her all-time favorite product."

Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist

Unsurprisingly, the seemingly ageless Bell (who turns 39 this month) is dutiful about her sunscreen application. "Kristen really likes the Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops, because they provide sun protection that doesn't change the texture of her skin or makeup," says Siegl. "She also loves this Supergoop! sunscreen mist. She keeps in her purse, and she sprays it all over her face, chest, and neck when she's out and about."
