A Drew Barrymore–designed air-fryer, a super fancy, super luxe turquoise knife, and a travel-approved sea salt tin are just some of Cameron Diaz’s “can’t-live-without-them” items, according to her latest interview with The Strategist, which also covered the 49-year-old star’s always-pressing beauty-and-makeup musts.
“I like a good exfoliation, but not if it’s too harsh or drying,” Diaz said about her only skin-care hit on the list the Gwyneth-approved Goopglow Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator. What I like about this, is it’s more gentle but still gives me a glow. I either do a quick scrub and wash it right off or slather it on and leave it for a few minutes to really break dirt down. Either way, my skin feels refreshed after.”
Making the makeup list—and, concurrently, the “only two makeup products” Diaz says she uses: Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick (which she praised for its “dewy sheen…a true glistening of your own skin”) and Merit Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick.
“This lipstick and the Westman Atelier highlighter really are the only two makeup products I use. I love a plummy color, so I use berry brown or soft berry day-to-day. Occasionally, I’ll wear the orange-red shade. I have a terrible habit of licking my lipstick off, so nothing ever stays on my lips through the day. Actually, I don’t know any woman who can keep their lipstick on throughout the day. I think that’s folklore. But it makes me feel better that this lipstick is clean since I’m reapplying it so much.”
