If you’re wondering the secret to Pamela Anderson’s beauty routine, you’ve come to the right place.

The Pamela, A Love Story star, 55, recently sat down for an interview with British Vogue and offered a glimpse inside her cosmetics-filled purse…and it was good. (We’re adding her go-tos to cart as we speak!)

In the video, Anderson showed viewers the products she can’t live without, plus demonstrated a highly creative trick to getting that perfectly tousled updo (hint: a G-string is involved). The actress also shared how she regrets not wearing SPF as a young adult. Keep scrolling for five products that Pamela Anderson can’t live without.

1. ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer

The creamy formula contains vitamin C and is designed to help brighten and even out your complexion. “The first object is concealer,” she says. “ILIA. It’s good.” While we can’t see exactly which hue Anderson uses, the concealer is available in 20 shades.

2. Kindred Black Devil’s Playground

This buildable product can be used on both your cheeks and your lips—add just a smudge for a barely-there flush, layer on the product for pop of bright cherry red, or find your perfect shade somewhere in between. It’s made from a blend of three nourishing oils: coconut, castor and Sonoran jojoba. “This is like a little cheek stuff that you can just put on,” Anderson says. “These little bottles [are] blown glass. Love it.”

3. Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm

The nourishing balm made with jojoba and wheat germ oils targets and soothes dehydrated lips. It contains 14 ounces of product, but keep in mind that a little goes a long way. Even Anderson is due for a refill. “Very used, almost empty,” she adds.

4. ILIA DayLite Highlighter Powder

This highlighter features vegan, talc-free ingredients and is designed to give users a gorgeous glow. “I love ILIA. ILIA is really beautiful, and this is their highlight-y thing,” Anderson says. “We didn’t know about this in the ’90s, but this is good.”

5. Summer Fridays ShadeDrops Mineral Milk Sunscreen

Users say this formula is lightweight enough to wear under makeup and doesn’t like any of that undesirable white coating. And Anderson is clearly also a fan: “I should have used more sunscreen when I was little. I counted my freckles the other day, I have like 137 just on my nose,” the actress explains. “Should have worn this.”
