Emily Simpson Shares the Exact Beauty Products She Uses "on a Daily Basis"

When it comes to sharing the details of her beauty procedures and regimens, Emily Simpson is an open book. Whether she’s revealing the before-and-after photos of a “mini” lower facelift she said gave her a “new jawline" or giving a peek at her new veneers, Emily is proud to share the intimate details of her life. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

That’s why when asked The Real Housewives of Orange County beauty to give us a tour of her vanity, she was more than willing to dish on her makeup and skincare must-haves. Included in the mix are Emily’s favorite Nars blush and products from two fellow ’Wives (more on that later). 

“I don’t really wear a lot of makeup except when someone else does it. But when I do it myself, it’s very minimal,” Emily states in the video above. Moreover, Emily shares some skincare concerns she’s been facing in her 40s, giving us some truly relatable content (her specialty at this point, let’s be honest!).  

Emily Opens Up About Her Acne

While sharing the details about her everyday makeup products, Emily reveals that Tarte Cosmetics makes her “favorite” concealer. “I buy a ton of these. I have them in every shade, every color you can imagine,” she says, further revealing some details about her skin.

“Because I’m a little hormonal, I keep getting breakouts,” Emily shares. “I never had breakouts when I was 16, but now, at 46, I get them all the time.” 

The mom of three then shows how she uses the concealer to cover her “adult acne,” also adding the light color “underneath the eyes” to brighten and on the bridge of her nose for “a little contouring.” 

She finishes by applying the Tarte product around her chin area to “cover up some blemishes,” dabbing the concealer to blend it seamlessly into her skin. “Sometimes [the concealers] have such good coverage I don’t even need foundation!” she reveals.

Emily also points out another go-to in her collection: Radiant Peel Pads ($65) from her bestie Gina Kirschenheiter’s skincare line, CaraGala. “These are the Radiant Peel Pads. I use these at night after I wash my face,” Emily explains of the exfoliation pads that “brighten” and “target dark spots,” according to the company’s website.

Emily then reveals another favorite product from a familiar Housewife: lip liner and lip gloss from Lisa Rinna’s makeup line, Rinna Beauty

“I do love Rinna Beauty products. She has great lip products. I love the liner,” Emily reveals while applying liner. “I actually use the liner just to even fill in [my lips]. And then just top it with a little bit of gloss.”
