We love us some Lynda Carter, and we’re all ears when the age-defying 72-year-old dishes on her beauty secrets.

On the Wonder Woman’s approved list: A whole bunch of tried-and-true beauty products, some of which hit under the $20 mark.

I’m still a Maybelline girl,” the actress-singer and former spokesperson for the brand shared with The Strategist, calling out the beloved Great Lash Mascara ($8). “It’s still the one that doesn’t flake. It’s inexpensive. I can go to any drugstore and pick up my favorite mascara. It’s still the best one on the market. The pink and green. It’s a classic formula, and it always works. I’ve been using that since I started wearing mascara. Particularly on my lower lashes—when you’ve got moisturizer on, they flake, but Maybelline doesn’t flake. And it comes off when you wash your face. Oh, Maybelline [sings]. It just still is the one, and I’ve just tried them all. All of them.”

For hair, Carter turns to an old standby: “I could probably just do a wet set with the Velcros, but who wants to sleep in curlers? They’re old-fashioned, but they work. I’ve had mine for years and years. I still have them.”

But that doesn’t mean Carter doesn’t reach for her Dyson.

“I got one of the very first ones,” she said when talking about the Airwrap Multistyler. “I’ve got very, very fine hair and I’ve never been able to use a hot iron. And I thought, Oh, maybe I could use this. So I got one, and I loved it. I go for soft waves. It’s so easy to use. You don’t turn it. It wraps the hair itself. I’ve used it on completely wet hair, and the style lasts for such a long time. I started putting it in Velcro curlers after I use the Dyson, and the curls can last for up to three days. It’s great. I’ve got my little system now. My hair has gotten grayer and I dye it, so my hair has also gotten wispier and finer. It’s even gotten harder to contain. So now I jump out of the shower, put the Dyson on, and then throw my hair in curlers. And by the time I do my makeup, it’s perfect.”
