It’s beauty o’clock here in Skimm Her Life land. And today we’ve got Rea Ann Silva, the CEO and founder of Beautyblender (you know, that magical egg-shaped lil’ sponge that you use to blend in all your makeup?), to share her self-care secrets. Take it away, Rea Ann...

Smartest purchase I’ve made recently...My balance body Pilates reformer. It’s been my go-to during COVID-19 as I am able to keep up with my workouts at my convenience. It’s been a lifesaver.

Product I keep adding to cart...Anything from Good American — I am addicted. The style and fit of their clothes are very comfortable for my active lifestyle. [Pssst: Skimm HQ recs their bodysuits and jeans.

My fave makeup tip...Being a makeup artist with over 25 years of experience, I do have some hacks up my sleeve — but my favorite at the moment is blushing my cheeks with our new Bounce Blush and then using the Beautyblusher to apply color to my lips.

Go-to gift for a beauty junkie...A Beautyblender and our Bounce Always On Radiant Skin Tint. It hydrates and plumps with hyaluronic acid, and offers a naturally radiant finish with light to medium buildable coverage.  

Pssst: This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
