What would Oprah do? It’s a question we often ask ourselves, whether we’re picking out a summer beach read or choosing a dress for an upcoming wedding. Luckily, she makes it easy on us with her annual roundup of favorite things, in which she includes everything from her go-to lip color to luxurious bubble bath. Between that massive list and a few gems spilled from her makeup artist, stealing her beauty looks has never been easier. Here are seven of Oprah’s favorite products.
7 Beauty Products Oprah Swears By
1. Footnanny ‘fresh Linen’ Set
Leave it to Oprah to make the smell of clean sheets feel like a novelty. In one of her favorite things roundups, she said: “The linen scent of this shower gel, hand soap, and lotion reminds me of slipping between freshly laundered sheets.” Sign us up.

2. Tocca ‘cleopatra Crema Da Mano’ Luxe Hand Cream
Oprah said she loves giving these to her friends and family around the holidays, but she stocks up for herself, too (one for her bag, car and house). “These hand creams are rich, quick absorbing and deeply soothing,” she wrote in her gift guide.
3. Carol’s Daughter Hair Care
A pioneer of natural hair care, this brand was relatively unknown when it was first featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2002, where Oprah raved about how well the products worked. Fast forward and she still includes it in every beauty roundup as her favorite hair brand.

4. Cailyn O! ‘wow’ Brush
A popular product for beauty buffs, these makeup applicators can run you a pretty penny (upwards of $70, in fact). Leave it to Oprah to find us a budget-friendly option. “These [Cailyn O!] high-quality makeup brushes are a pleasure to use. They feel good in your hands and are just what you need to blend, blend, blend,” she wrote in her favorite things roundup.
6. Lancôme ‘le Metallique’ Metallic Lip Lacquer
Although usually subtle with her makeup choices—with the notable exception of her role in A Wrinkle in Time—Oprah is known to add a pop of color to her lips. Oprah’s makeup artist Derrick Rutledge spilled her perfect pout secret: layers. He’ll start with a matte lipstick and top it with a metallic hue that adds depth to her lips.
7. Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express For Brows And Eyes
Although we all know and love Anastasia now, Oprah introduced the world to her brow-making magic back in 2007 when she had a makeover live on the show. In the 11 years since, Oprah still touts Anastasia as her saving grace for all brow needs.
