On My Vanity: How Gabrielle Ruiz Gets Glamourous

Gabrielle Ruiz can be seen as Valencia on The CW’s critically acclaimed and Emmy-winning musical comedy, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” We asked the talented, Texas-born star to share her biggest beauty secrets.

“Our key makeup artist, Kymber Blake, introduced a few of these over the last three seasons we’ve been working together on the show,” says Ruiz.

Dayle Breault Heartfelt Emulsion Day Cream

“Kymber introduced this day cream when I was on location in the desert. After four days in the sun, I never got a sunburn and my complexion stayed clear and hydrated.” $84.88, GoddessOfSkin.com

Nars Brow Defining Cream in ‘el djouf’

“I can’t say enough about the Nars Brow Defining Cream! I feel like my lush, Latina eyebrows now perfectly frame my face without overpowering in color.” $24, SaksFifthAvenue.com

Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara in Deep Brown or Deep Black

“I’m obsessed over Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes mascara’s spherical brush! I feel like I can never go back to regular shaped brushes because this one cleverly curls my eyelashes without any clumps.” $32, SaksFifthAvenue.com

L’Oreal La Palette Lip

“I confess, I own the nude, plum, AND the red color palettes! These palettes replaced the dozens of lipsticks weighing down my purse. Now, I have color options, matte or glossy choices, and when I’m in a sassy mood, I can even highlight, contour, and blend. Every girl should relieve her purse of weight with one single La Palette. Or maybe have all three like me!” $16.99 each, LorealParisUSA.com
