As a California native and an original cast member of Laguna Beach and The Hills, Kristin Cavallari has always had a knack for pulling off that effortless glow. It’s a look the 30-year-old has managed to maintain even after moving to Chicago and juggling work and motherhood (the reality starlet has three children with husband Jay Cutler).

As it turns out, getting her dewy beauty isn’t as difficult as you may think — at least not according to Cavallari. In a new interview with Us Weekly, the cookbook author and fashion designer revealed that her radiance comes courtesy of just two beauty products. “All I ever do is fill in my brows and wear mascara and I’m good to go,” she said.

But not just any mascara — the entrepreneur relies on Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara ($32) in the deepest shade of black. “I’m such an eye girl,” she said.

The Balancing in Heels author says that beyond products, it’s lifestyle changes she’s made that are to thank for her flawless complexion. “I think the most important thing is your skin — it’s sort of your base, and you can build from there… once I kinda’ changed my diet and stopped going out so much, then my skin started clearing up,” she said.

While she says she does get some help once in a while from moisturizing masks (Cavallari likes 111Skin Bio Collulose Facial Treatment Mask [$160] and Sisley’s Black Rose Cream Mask [$162]), she credits her mom for helping her to preserve her natural canvas. Cavallari has never done botox or had work done to her face, a fact she’s very proud of. “When I was younger [she] told me you’re never too young to start moisturizing. Now that I’m getting a little bit older, I wholeheartedly believe that — you’re never too young,” she said.
