I have been following Heather McMahan on Instagram for a while now and just like everyone else- I’m obsessed! Heather is an actress and comedian and she recently started the Absolutely Not Podcast which is so so good. On episode 4 Wellness Update…We Are Unwell at 30:30 she answers a listeners caller about what makeup she uses and I thought I’d share it here.

On the Absolutely Not Podcast episode 09 YA PEAKED with Jamie Greenberg Heather had a conversation with her friend and celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg where they shared more of Heather’s makeup faves.
Tarte Shape Tape
On this episode Heather mentions that she loves the Tarte Shape Tape concealer because it covers everything..
BareMinerals Well-Rested Eye Brightener
To brighten her under eyes Heather uses the Bareminerals Well-Rested Eye Brightener Broad Spectrum SPF 20.
BareMinerals Original Foundation
Heather also says in the episode that she uses the BareMinerals Original Foundation and has been wearing it for years.
Benefit hoola bronzer
Heather uses Benefit Hoola bronzer. Hoola is great because it has more neutral undertones so it won’t make you appear too orange. It can also be used as a contour color. Heather says she uses very little eye makeup, but will use this bronzer as an eyeshadow.
Heather likes the classic NARS blush in Orgasm. She says she mixes it with BareMinerals blushes. NARS Orgasm is so beloved because the color is pretty universally flattering and it has a very light shimmer to it which adds a pretty highlight.
Heather McMahan Eyelash Extensions
Heather loves eyelash extensions and so do I. They give that effortlessly glamorous look without being too over the top. You will seriously wake up feeling more beautiful. Heather says she wants to be buried in eyelash extensions. I highly recommend them!

Heather says she wears Maybelline mascara on her lower lashes, but doesn’t specify which one. Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara is great for lower lashes because the brush is extremely thin and tiny.
Heather McMahon Lipstick
nyx soft matte lip cream

Nars lip gloss

Heather McMahan Hair
Heather has blonde highlights that she gets done by Justin Anderson at the dphue house in LA. You can listen to Heather McMahan and Justin Anderson chat while he does her hair on Justin’s podcast In the Chair with Justin Anderson.
Heather says Playa New Day Mist is the best thing she’s ever used. It’s a 3-in-1 Styler Refresh spray. Playa says “Your ultimate lifesaver. New Day Mist is a three-in-one reboot for tired hair: one part hairspray, one part hydrator, and one part fragrance. The fine mist works to smooth out dents and creases, allowing you to reset your style without washing, hot tools, or harsh chemicals. Consider it the easiest way to get an extra day out of your style.”
She uses the Playa Ritual Hair Oil to give her hair moisture and shine.
Clip in Hair Extensions
Heather uses clip-in hair extensions to give her hair some fullness, body, and volume. I love my GirlGetGlamorous clip-in hair extensions and wear them for basically every event or anytime I’m going to be in photos. They’re amazing! Use my code “Hollywood” for a discount.
Heather McMahan Skincare
Simply Jess Skincare
Heather says she does “baby Botox” which is also called “preventative Botox.” It’s basically where you get a small dosage of Botox to help with some emerging fine lines and wrinkles.
Heather loves the Megababe Rosy Pits Daily deodorant because it’s natural. She says that you need to know that there’s an adjustment period when you switch from traditional deodorant with aluminum to a natural deodorant. She carries this with her to reapply throughout the day as needed.
Heather sings the praises of Megababe Bust Dust which is a natural powder that helps prevent boob sweat. It has bacteria-fighting lavender and soothing chamomile. It also prevents sweat stains from seeping through your top.
Thigh Anti-Chafe Stick
Megababe Thigh Rescue is a non-toxic formula that goes on smooth and creates a friction-free barrier to prevent thigh chafing.
CBDistillery CBDefine Skin Care Cream
Heather has eczema and recommends using the CBDistillery CBDefine Skin Care Cream.
