  • My favorite beauty item is: I hear you on the eyebrows! I only figured out that I could fill in my eyebrows when I was like...23. It never occurred to me. Grand lash MD, mascara and a little bit of foundation. It is important to me that all makeup that I use be animal cruelty-free.
  • Must have cocktail: Must sip: Martinelli's Apple cider in a champagne glass! You can make the cork pop with those too.
