Lisa Rinna’s Beauty Secrets

Lisa Rinna's makeup and beauty secrets including skin care, hair care, diet, exercise, and more

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 premiers on 2/12/19 and I thought it was time to do a beauty secrets post on Lisa Rinna! In case you missed it I’ve done beauty secrets posts for Lisa Rinna’s Real Housewives costars Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, and Erika Jayne already.

How Old is Lisa Rinna?

Lisa Rinna was born July 11, 1963 making her 57 years old.

Lisa Rinna’s Makeup

Lisa Rinna’s Lipstick and Lipgloss

“Ive got lots of lip stuff, for sure – they’re the biggest part of my face! I always have a lip on, otherwise I’ll chew my lips.”

Lisa Rinna's favorite lipsticks and lipglosses. Lisa Rinna lipstick, Lisa Rinna lip gloss, Lisa Rinna Tom Ford, Lisa Rinna MAC, Lisa Rinna kinda sexy

Lisa Rinna’s favorite lipstick ever is MAC lipstick in Kinda Sexy (ps I’m super fair with blonde hair and love this shade too!).

Lisa Rinna’s Lip Gloss

Lisa Rinna tops MAC Kinda Sexy lip gloss with MAC lipglass in Lust, MAC lipglass in Cultured, or MAC lipglass in Prr.

Like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna also enjoys Chanel lipglosses. She carries Chanel lip gloss in Rose Sand in her handbag. This color is no longer available, but I think the closest shade in Chanel lip gloss is 804 Rose Naif.

In Lisa’s “What’s in My Bag?” you can see a Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss, but the color isn’t mentioned. I’m guessing it’s Sahara Pink.

Lip Balm

Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer keeps her signature pout hydrated on the go.

Coral Lip Pencil

Lisa branched out from her signature nude lip and wore a pretty coral on Watch What Happens Live. Her makeup artist revealed that the color was NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi. (source)

Lisa Rinna’s Foundation and Concealer

Lisa Rinna's go to foundation, concealer, blush and bronzer.

CC Cream Foundation

Lisa Rinna loves the same foundation as Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks (and me!) IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream. This foundation has amazing coverage, feels like you’re wearing nothing, and has great skin care benefits and SPF. I’ve gone through several tubes of it!


Lisa Rinna uses NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer in Ginger. Ginger has an orange tint to it which is great at hiding dark under eye circles.

Pressed Finishing Powder

She tops that with Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Warm Natural. Topping liquid BB cream or foundation will “set” your makeup making sure it stays put during the day and it will take away any oiliness.

Contour and Highlight

For a glow Lisa Rinna uses Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze & Glow Contour Duo. The bronzer has a nice neutral undertone so it can work great as a contour shade to carve out the cheek bones.

Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump love the same blush- NARS Orgasm. It’s a cult fave for a reason!

Lisa Rinna’s makeup artist Joey Maalouf has also worked with Rachel Zoe, Kendall Jenner, Jessica Alba Goldie Hawn, and Kate Hudson. He says a nudie lip and smokey eye are Lisa Rinna’s signature look and I agree! (source)

Lisa Rinna’s Skin Care


Lisa Rinna saw her first dermatologist at 11 years old and had to go on Accutane in her 20’s because her acne was so severe, so she takes her skin care very seriously! (source)

Lisa Rinna's skin care- some of Lisa Rinna's favorite skincare products, Lancer, Kate Somerville, Dr. Barbara Sturm drops

DIY Eye De-Puffing with Hemorrhoid Pads

A well known beauty secret is to use hemorrhoid cream under the eyes to help with puffiness. Lisa started with those, but moved on to the hemorrhoid pads which can lay under the eyes for 5-10 minutes for a quick de-puffing. The cream shrinks the blood vessels, works as an astringent, and gives some contraction for tightening.

Exfoliating Facial Scrub

Lisa likes Kate Somerville ExfoliKate which is an exfoliator for the face. She uses it twice a week.

Acne Spot Treatment

Lisa Rinna uses Kate Somerville’s EradiKate acne treatment if a spot pops up. Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City is a fan of this as well. (source)

Both Carole Radziwill and Lisa Rinna love Dr. Barbara Sturm’s line for anti-aging. Lisa Rinna’s favorite products are the Dr. Barbara Strum Glow Drops, Sun Drops, and the Face Cream. (source)


Lisa always applies sunscreen before walking out the door. She likes Dr. Lancer’s or Kate Somerville’s. (source)

Glycolic Acid Exfoliator

Lisa says in her book Rinnavation: Getting Your Best Life Ever that she found GlyDerm Lotion Lite to be very similar to a $250 face cream her friends were using.

Cortisone Shot for Acne

According to her daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin, Lisa Rinna recommends going to the doctor for a cortisone shot when she gets pimples. (source)

Exfoliating Body Cream

Lisa Rinna likes LANCER Skincare The Method Body Nourish Creme which has 10% glycolic acid. The glycolic acid exfoliates the skin and improves the appearance of skin texture, firmness, and tone. Lisa says “I swear that when you have a little age spots or little things happening…gone! Renews the skin on your body.” (source)

Nurse Jamie UpLift Body Rolling Beauty Massager

Lisa mentioned celeb favorite Nurse Jamie’s UpLift Body Rolling Beauty Massage and showed off how she used it on her Instagram story. This y-shaped rolling beauty massager uses high frequency sonic vibration to improve and uplift skin’a appearance. You can use it with or without body oils or moisturizers and you can use it on your face, neck and chest as well as your body.

Drugstore Nighttime Moisturizers

Lisa is pretty obsessed with moisturizing her body as well. She makes sure to moisturize her hands nightly and wears moisturizing gloves to bed once a week. She loves Erika Jayne’s favorite Aquaphor and uses Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Jar on her feet, knees and elbows.

Lisa Rinna’s Sheet Masks and Face Masks

Facial Patches

Lisa posted on Instagram when her makeup artist covered her face in Skyn ICELAND Face Lift in a Bag face and under eye patches.

Sheet Mask

She also carries LANCER Skincare Lift & Plump Sheet Masks in her purse (source). Patricia Altschul of Southern Charm is also a LANCER skin care fan.

Masks for Filming

Lisa also likes to use her facialist Renee Rouleau’s masks before a day of filming. She uses the Triple Berry Smoothing Peel followed by either the Energizing Cleansing Masque if her skin feels oily or Bio Calm Repair Masque if she needs moisture. (source, source)

Lisa Rinna’s DIY Face Masks

DIY Egg White Mask

If you’re not quite on the Rinna/Hamlin budget Lisa has some affordable recommendations you can find right in the kitchen. She uses an egg white mask which dries and tightens and feels like an instant face lift. Dr. Andrew Ordon on The Doctors agreed with Lisa and added that the proteins in the egg put the moisture back into your skin.

DIY Lip Plumpling Mask

Lisa recommends rubbing a little cinnamon on the lips for some pluming. Dr. Ordon agreed that it gives the lips an inflammatory reaction and the temporary swelling makes the lips look plump.

DIY Exfoliating Mask

Lisa mixes together egg, honey, lemon oil, olive oil, and sugar and then uses it on the backs of her hands, her lips and her face to exfoliate.


Lisa Rinna’s Hair

“I wash my hair or I use Chaz Dean’s Wen. I alternate. I try to not wash it every day. Then I use Paul Mitchell mousse. Then I dry it. Then I put in some kind of pomade. I like Supremo’s Magic Move, in soft or hard, or Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Styling Wax. Then I use Kerastase’s Double Force Hairspray. A little flat iron if I’m going out, or I throw a little Moroccanoil in it if it’s dry. That’s it.”

Lisa Rinna’s Plastic Surgery

Lisa Rinna’s Lips

Lisa Rinna had her lips originally filled with collagen at 24 years old. When it wore off 3 months later she decided she wanted more permanent results so she had her top lip filled with silicone. At first Lisa loved her silicone lip injections, but they got hard and bumpy over time. (source)

Lisa had lip surgery to have her lip procedure reversed on her reality show Harry Loves Lisa in 2010 (source). Garth Fissure is the surgeon that did the reconstruction/upper lip surgery for Lisa Rinna. You may remember him from my previous post on Lip Injections, Fillers, and Plastic Surgery. Silicone injections have been replaced by fillers like Juvederm which look more natural and are not permanent.

Lisa was really a pioneer in the lip filler category. She was made fun of relentlessly and now everyone is getting lip filler!

Although she hated when they became hard and lumpy, she claims she never got any roles until she had her lips done and that they made her career!

Lisa Rinna’s Botox and Fillers

Lisa Rinna has admitted in In Touch to getting filler in her face and Botox. In 2010 she said she went a little overboard on the filler, but luckily it dissolves with time. (source)

Lisa Rinna Breast Augmentation

Ok I spent wayyyyy too much time trying to find a legitimate source/quote where Lisa Rinna said she got breast implants, but all I could find was lots of references to her getting a breast augmentation before posing in Playboy. (source) (source)

Lisa Rinna in Playboy Magazine

The six-months pregnant pictorial was Rinna’s brainchild. “I was at the newsstand,” she says in the magazine. “I saw a Playboy next to the cash register, and all of a sudden something in me said, ‘You have to do Playboy pregnant.’ “


But.. she was pregnant when she first posed for Playboy in 1998 .

“I really felt that pregnancy was the most inspiring time of my life. I’ve never felt better about myself, about my body, about who I am as a woman.”

Lisa Rinna on the cover of Playboy in 1998 on the left and in 2009 on the right.

Lisa Rinna posed for Playboy again in 2009 at 45 years old. I assume she had a boob job before her second Playboy cover photo shoot.

Renee Rouleau

Lisa Rinna sees Renee Rouleau and loves using her skin care products as well.

Lisa Rinna Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facials

Dr. Diamond

She has also had Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facials with Dr. Diamond. Kelly Dodd from Real Housewives of Orange County is a fan of these as well. Lisa’s co-star Kyle Richards also credits PRP facials with her recently refreshed look. They’re supposed to be great for increasing collagen which firms the skin and makes it appear smoother.
