When Salma Hayek isn鈥檛 busy rocking pink hair or being the best house guest ever, she鈥檚 turning heads on the red carpet. And while many A-listers鈥 beauty routines are extensive (and expensive), Hayek鈥檚 actually relatively low-maintenance. She relies on just a few tried-and-true products 鈥 some of which are surprisingly affordable.

The Hitman鈥檚 Bodyguard actress told the New York Timeswhat鈥檚 in her makeup bag. While she typically sticks to foundation and blush (courtesy of lipstick rubbed on her cheeks) for her day-to-day look, she revealed, 鈥淭here鈥檚 one concealer that is great for events.鈥

Hayek鈥檚 secret weapon for looking flawless under all those flashing lights is Cinema Secrets Ultimate Corrector ($16). However, this heavy duty product should be used only sparingly. 鈥淵ou don鈥檛 want to wear it every day because it鈥檚 too much coverage, but sometimes I need it for the red carpet,鈥 the Nuance Beauty founder, 50, said.

Other items in her kit include brushes by EcoTools ($13), Clinique Pop ($19) lipsticks, Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm ($74), and her go-to scent is Charlotte Tilbury鈥檚 Scent of a Dream ($75 to $130).

As for her skin, Hayek only cleanses at nighttime. She says, 鈥淢y grandmother taught me that at night your skin replenishes all the things you lost during the day. Also, if I cleanse very well at night, why would it be dirty when I wake up?鈥
