The multi-talented actress Keke Palmer dishes on her musts for the summer and beyond.

ESSENCE: I noticed on Instagram that you post a lot about your eyelashes. Can you tell me why you love wearing eyelashes so much?
Palmer: I started doing eyelash extensions not too long ago. I really actually like them! You just have to make sure you’re not rough with your eye area and they will last a really long time.

ESSENCE: Who does your lashes?
Palmer: Tasha at Wink Lash Studio in Pasadena, California.

ESSENCE: Is it something that you think you’ll continue or is wearing them a fleeting trend?
I think they will stay, but even if they don’t, they will come back!

ESSENCE: Do you have any beauty secrets?
Yes! Put a little orange [concealer] underneath your eye and then put your concealer color on top. Honey! Makes you look like a newborn baby! MAC and NYX make one, but you can get them from anywhere. I know it sounds crazy. It looks like straight up like the color orange. I also like Cargo’s Fiji and Laguna blush.

ESSENCE: What’s in your beauty bag these days?
Palmer: I love Smashbox, Tarte lip stain, and Frivole blush from Chanel. I also use Estee Lauder’s foundation as a concealer. I love it, love it, love it, love it!
