Want to know what keeps the Latina housekeepers on “Devious Maids” so pretty on screen and off? Show co-stars Judy Reyes, Edy Ganem and Dania Ramirez share their secrets with Beauty Craves: tips, takeaways, and what’s in their purse right now.
Always in my purse: These days I carry FusionBeauty Lipfusion Micro Collagen Lip Plump in Ripe.
Favorite beauty treatment: I swear by a monthly facial. The ritual alone makes you feel pretty.
Hair secrets: WEN rocks! Roselyn Sanchez introduced it to us, it works on the curls. The daily Cucumber Aloe conditioner and the Pomegranate Anti Frizz styling gel are everything. I deep condition with Kevin Murphy’s Young Again masque.
Favorite products: Fresh Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation no. 7 and 8, and NARS Blush in Orgasm.
Nail ritual: Gel nails are the best thing that has happened to me. I’m clutzy and don’t use gloves in the kitchen so my nails chip. Instead of getting a basic mani weekly, I luxuriate with an all-out mani/pedi twice a month.
Always in my purse: I always have at least four different lip products in my purse – I’m obsessed! I’m into L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge “Unending Kiss.” It’s a very soft and natural pink color. I’ve also discovered Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in “sweet violet.” I like it because it’s very natural and feels good on my lips.
Favorite beauty treatment: I use the Clairsonic Cleansing system to wash my face three times a week.
Hair secrets: I use my Bionic flat iron and hair dryer, all shampoo and conditioners are sulfate free, and keep the blow-drys to a minimum. If I can go two to three or even four days without washing my hair I’ll just go for it. I know, sounds gross, but otherwise I’d be frying my hair.
Favorite products: L’Oreal Infallible “Unending Kiss,” Velour Lashes, DiorSkin Nude 031, Bare Minerals in “Beauty” or NARS “orgasm,” L’Oreal Wear Infinite Studio Secrets Quad #814 “Earthscape,” Revlon ColorStay eyeliner in black, Milani Eye Tech Extreme liquid eye liner in “blackest black,” Benefit “They’re Real,” Giorgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer, Benefit Watt’s Up!, Soft Focus Highlighter for Face for a dewy glow.
Nail ritual: For a longer nail look I get a gel manicure. They grow with the gel polish and then I keep going until I want my natural, short nails back with the regular polish.
Always in my purse: The MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolor (Lasting Lust AB2) is with me at all times because the right red lips make me feel made up no matter what I have on. Also, Dior Nude Tan Bronzer and L’Oreal Paris Luminous Mascara in black.
Favorite beauty treatment: Facials at the Thibiant Beverly Hills Skin Care Clinic every three months.
Hair secrets: Kerastase’s Nutritive Oleo-Relax Nutri-Huile + Anti-Frizz serum keeps my hair moist and shiny.
Favorite Products: Makeup For Ever Aqua Rouge #20 is (makeup artist Stephanie Barnes uses it for my character Rosie on “Devious Maids”), and Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #9.
Nail ritual: I prefer gel polish for color, or a good buffing for a more natural look.
