Ellen Pompeo has still got it. During last night’s People’s Choice Awards, the 51 year-old actress and activist was awarded the Female TV Star Award, but it wasn’t just her dazzling sheer pant suit that took center stage—her skin was as flawless as ever. 

In true 2020 fashion, Pompeo’s glow didn’t come from a series of facials leading up to the award show, but instead from a very basic skin-care routine any derm would approve of. 

Pompeo’s makeup artist, Matthew Vanleeuwen, shared the products he used to prep the star’s skin for the big stage last night and, a shock to us all, totals at less than $60. 

“Beautiful makeup always starts with the perfect skin prep, so I was delighted to indulge Ellen’s skin in CeraVe products,” reads Vanleeuwen’s post. “We started with CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser ($15) for a clean start. I followed with the Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum ($19) for plumping and extra nourishment. I finished skin prep with Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion ($19).”

To finish off her complexion, Vanleeuwen used Cle De Peau Radiant Silk Foundation in B20 and cult-classic Concealer ($73) in Beige. “It was a beautiful fresh look for the award show!”
