“Real Housewives of D.C.” star Stacie Turner visited the ESSENCE.COM offices yesterday, and we all had a blast! We’re pleased to report that along with being funny, charming and candid, Turner was drop-dead gorgeous (and tall… who knew?). We couldn’t resist asking Bravo’s newest reality star to let us in on a few of her beauty secrets… ESSENCE.COM: We’re loving your bronzey gloss! What did you use? STACIE TURNER: It’s a combination of a lipstick and a gloss — MAC Lipstick in Meltdown, and Laura Mercier Lipgloss in Bronze. ESSENCE.COM: Is there any one makeup product that’s always in your purse? TURNER: Blotting papers. I don’t go anywhere without them. In fact, we had to stop by Sephora to pick some up on the way here! ESSENCE.COM: Your hair is lighter than it is on the show. Did you just have it done? TURNER: Yes! The funny thing is, my hair is usually highlighted like this, especially in the summer. I decided the summer’s almost over, so I might as well go for it. I go to Bruce Johnson at the Avatar Salon in Silver Spring, MD. Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” airs on Thursdays, 9/8c
