Jennifer Aydin knows a thing or two about looking (and feeling) fabulous and now she's spilling her makeup secrets.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member isn't shy about her love of dressing up and getting glammed, whether it's for a holiday party or walking the red carpet at an awards show. As seen in the tutorial above, Jennifer pulls out all of the stops in her daily beauty routine. Watch Jennifer do her makeup and read on for all of the details about the makeup that highlights all of her best features.

See Jennifer Aydin's Makeup Routine

The Ultimate Beauty Pillow founder took to the primary bathroom of her New Jersey home where she filmed herself doing her makeup for BravoTV.com (and managed to sneak away from her five kids and husband, Dr. Bill Aydin). Jennifer revealed that her routine started with "a little sunblock" — especially if she plans on being in the sun that day. "Once you hit your 40's, all it takes is one day in the sun for you to get one of those brown spots, and as you can see, I have no brown spots," she said.

After sunblock, Jennifer applied her Moira Lavish Creamy Concealer ($7.50) in the color, Milk Tea, first, with a sponge, before her foundation, to "even out the face." "We always want to make the nose look smaller. The rest we want big," she said in the video. "Big lips, big eyes, big personality. Check!"

After "beating" her face with the sponge, Jennifer mixed two different shades of Kevyn Aucoin's Etherealist Skin Illuminating Foundation ($59) to get the perfect, custom color to match her skin tone. Once she applied that with the same sponge, Jennifer set the foundation with Huda Beauty's Easy Bake Loose Baking and Setting Powder in the color Banana Bread ($38). "The face is the canvas, then we add, like Picasso," she explained. Using Benefit Cosmetics' Hoola Bronzer ($36), Jennifer contoured her nose, temples, and cheekbones, before blending it out with a fluffier brush. 

When it came to the eyes, Jennifer put on her fake lashes first, where she applied the adhesive directly to her lid and clamped the false lash down with a tweezer. Jennifer then moved on to her brows, shaping them while applying a pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($21) with an angled brush. A soft brown lip liner from Colourpop Cosmetics ($7) served as her eyeliner, which she applied to her lower lash line and her lips.

To top the whole thing off, Jennifer applied Christian Audette's lipstick in the color, Company Card ($29), and a little bit of Clinique's High Impact Mascara ($26) on her lashes, to blend her natural lashes with the false ones. "Voila! This is my look for the day!," Jennifer said at the end of the tutorial.
