Debi Nova’s 5 Must-Have Beauty Items

We recently caught up with Costa Rican pop star Debi Nova to get the scoop on the beauty products she can’t live without. Considering she has awesome wavy hair and gorgeous bronzed skin, we fully expected her to divulge her favorite curl cream and bronzer. Nope! “[That's] thanks to lots of surfing,” she said. “But actually all the surfing I do does affect the products I need; they have to be super moisturizing and great at protecting my skin from the sun.”

Here are Debi’s top five:
1. Caress Velvet Bliss Body Wash ($4.49, “It’s so hydrating that I can skip body lotion, and I love the scent.”
2. Kevyn Aucoin The Mascara ($25, “It never smudges, but yet comes off easily when I want it to—I can’t spare the minutes it would take to get a waterproof mascara off.”
3. Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation in Translucent ($26, “This won’t come off even in water. I have to wipe it off my face after an entire day at the beach!”
4. Epicuren Aloe Vera Gel ($10, “I love that besides aloe this has green tea and cucumber, too. I smooth it on my hands and face daily, then ever so often mix it into a clay mask.”
5. Kiehl’s Lip Balm SPF 15 ($9.50, “This balm keeps my lips soft for a long, long time—even in Los Angeles where the air is so dry.”
