In a now-infamous moment in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills history, last season, Erika Jayne broke down to Kyle Richards about filing for divorce while mascara streaks ran down her face. (Press play on the clip above to relive the drama.) After some fans speculated that the moment was contrived, the singer addressed the controversy during the Season 11 reunion and called forgetting to wear waterproof mascara a “fluke.”

More recently, Erika shared more about the fallout from the situation — including how her glam team reacted. “My makeup artist was not happy,” Erika told in a May interview. “And don’t think that was a setup. That was horrible. I usually wear waterproof mascara... I was like f--k.” (Watch the clip below to hear more from Erika's glam team and see the "chaos" of getting her ready for a RHOBH interview.)

Still, the singer has a sense of humor about the whole situation. When asked about her favorite mascara brand, she quipped, “Something waterproof.”

Erika also shared other product recommendations, and her most important ones revolve around her hair. “I usually reach for my Mason Pearson brush the most,” she said of the cult-favorite brush ($120 to $275). For washing and conditioning, she reaches for Joico’s Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo ($21.50 for 10.1 ounces) and Blonde Life Brightening Conditioner ($22.50 for 8.5 ounces). “My hair is very light, so I’m usually using a blonde shampoo and a blonde conditioner that’s formulated for really high lift hair,” she shared. “This particular shampoo pulls my hair up beautifully... The products I put in my hair do not have any color, so there’s no oils, no yellows,” she explained, adding that she avoids purple shampoos because they turn her hair brassy. Last, but certainly not least, Erika also relies heavily on her own line of hair extensions, Pretty Mess Hair, to add length and fullness. “It’s really good hair.” she noted.
