With her youthful glow and radiant beauty, it’s hard to believe Martha Stewart just celebrated eight decades on the planet. How does she manage to still look so amazing at 80? Whether it’s her daily green juice habit or just good genes (or, more likely, a little of both), a little help from the right makeup is a good thing, too. And who wouldn’t want a peek inside Martha Stewart’s makeup bag?
Lucky for all of us, the ageless octogenarian spilled the beans about her favorite beauty products, and we took notes. From her go-to nude lipstick to the drugstore eyeliner she swears by, we’ve compiled everything she can’t get enough of, so you can get her look.

Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50
Martha knows the importance of sun protection, which is why she always applies this sheer formula under her foundation.
Amorepacific Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer and Mac Cosmetics 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush
AmorePacific Moisture Bound Tinted Treatment Moisturizer: Buy from Amazon, $70
MAC Cosmetics 187 Duo Fibre face brush: Buy from MAC Cosmetics, $42
AmorePacific's tinted moisturizer is Martha's next step. She applies it with a brush, but feel free to use your hands. On her days off, Martha opts for just her tinted moisturizer and a hint of bronzer for a fuss-free look.
Cle De Peau Refining Fluid Foundation SPF 24
With its built-in SPF 24, Cle de Peau's Refining Fluid Foundation gives Martha's skin an added layer of protection. She applies it with the same MAC brush she used with her tinted moisturizer. Surprisingly, Martha says she uses a foundation that's a bit darker than her skin tone. Perhaps she likes to look tan?
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder
"I don't know what I'd do without this bronzer," Martha says of Bobbi Brown's Bronzing Powder in the shade Natural. "I like that it isn't too shimmery. I sweep it over my cheekbones, temples, décolleté, and along the bottom of my jawline to add dimension."
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer
Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat High Cover Radiant Concealer is beloved by many — including Martha Stewart. She uses it under her eyes and at the base of the nose to mask any marks or shadows. This multi-use product also doubles as her eyelid primer.
Dior Diorskin Loose Powder and Shu Uemura Natural Brush 27
Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder: Buy from Nordstrom, $58
Shu Uemura Natural Brush 27: Buy from Amazon, $52.63
Martha doesn't usually wear setting powder, but she will make an exception and use this one from Dior if she's going to be on camera.
Lancome Blush Subtil
Blush is optional in Martha's beauty routine, and she only uses it when she feels her face needs a pop of color. Unfortunately, Lancôme no longer sells her favorite shade, Cosmopolitan Pink, but they have dozens of other flattering hues.
Bobbi Brown Customized 4 Pan Palette
Isn't it annoying when you buy a palette for one or two shades and the others never get touched? With Bobbi Brown's four-pan palette, you can customize your colors. Martha's favorites are Mahogany, Cement, Navajo, and Heather Mauve. Bobbi Brown discontinued Navajo, so we suggest Ivory instead.
Where to buy Bobbi Brown Customized Four-Pan Palette: $10, Bloomingdale's
Where to buy eye Bobbi Brown eyeshadows: $27 each, Bobbi Brown
Where to buy Stila #15 Double-Sided Crease and Liner Brush: $11 (originally $32), Stila
Loreal Paris Lineur Intense Defining Liquid Liner Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner
Martha's favorite eyeliner is a drugstore pick: L'Oréal Paris Lineur Intense Defining Liquid Liner Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner. She prefers a chocolate brown shade over black as it's less harsh and makes for a softer eye makeup look.
Where to buy: $7.89, Target
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
An eyelash curler is one of those things you don't think you need until you actually try it and wonder, "Where has this been all my life?"
Where to buy: $23, Shu Uemura
Clinique High Impact Mascara
Once she's curled her lashes, Martha likes to go in with a black-brown mascara, preferably one that has a hypoallergenic formula. She only applies the product to the tips of her lashes to create a more subtle makeup look.
Mac Cosmetics Eye Brows
Anyone with sparse brows can attest to the power of a good brow pencil. Martha likes a pale shade that's close to the natural color of her eyebrows.
Where to buy: $19, MAC Cosmetics
Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour
Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate: Buy from Nordstrom, $38
What better shade for a special occasion than a classic red? Martha prefers neutral shades for everyday, but for big events, she's willing to go bold with Chanel's Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate.
Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Makeup Forever Aqua Lip
"A subtle hint of color is the most flattering," Martha says. "My go-to shade is a dusty rose. First, I line my lips; then I use a lip brush to apply the lipstick all over."

Buxom Big And Healthy Lip Polish
