She’s best known for her role as Molly in Insecure, but we think Yvonne Orji’s flawless skin should take centre stage. The actress swears by a handful of brands to maintain her combination skin, including Dermalogica and MAC. Here’s what she loves and why.

Clarisonic: Orji loves this beauty tool which improves skin tone and reduces the appearance of pores whilst effectively loosening dirt. “God bless it. Ever since I got it I’ve just been like, Bzzzzzzz. It really does give me a deep clean. And then it softens up — my skin is thick but sensitive at the same time — it’s combination. I use a Kate Somerville cleanser with that.”

Dermalogica: the star is a huge fan of their tinted moisturiser because “it gives you coverage without being too greasy”. She also loves the Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque to “get all impurities out”.

MAC: “I love MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW45 and because I like a good eyebrow, I thread and then use a MAC pencil to fill in. My favourite thing right now is this Black Up 2 in 1 Lip Pencil in Brown. I was a MAC Chestnut girl, but then I got this. It’s moisturising, but it’s like a rich brown velvety sheen that goes on smooth, and if I rub my lips, it’s creamy.”

Orji’s other makeup secrets include a dark brown blush which she mixes with purple, L’Oréal’s voluminous lash mascara and Bobbi Brown eyeliner.
