If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked actress Meagan Good, star of The Intruder, about the brow pencil, fanny pack, and mineral water she can’t live without.
These are the best stretch pants. No matter how you’re feeling, no matter what time of the season, it just holds everything together really tight and flat. You can wear them with tennis shoes, you can wear them at the airport, you can also wear them out to dinner with a crop top or a T-shirt and a leather jacket.
My brow journey started when I was really young, plucking my brows because in the 90s it was very popular to have very skinny brows. And by the time I was 19, they wouldn’t really grow back properly. By the time I was 25 I started tattooing them and by the time I was 30 I was microblading them. And at a certain point, they started to look a little harsh to me. So I got an eyebrow transplant which is where they take hair from the back of your head and actually implant it into your brow. My brows are totally thick now, but I had to train my brows to lay in the form I wanted them to lay in. And most of the brow gels that I used weren’t strong enough to give me the hold that I wanted. But this 24-hour brow gel is amazing. It’s slightly buildable, lasts all day, and it doesn’t move. It’s just perfect for people who have really full, thick brows.
I gave up pretty much all juice and soda years ago. I probably have a soda maybe three or four times a year. So, for me, because I mostly drink water, Perrier is just a way to make it feel like a treat. It’s not artificially sweetened, but it has just a little sweetness to it that’s natural.
I’m a connoisseur of cleansers. This particular cleanser really helps my skin from breaking out. Tea tree oil is something I used to always use as a kid on my skin. You’ve got to find something that works for you depending on your skin type and this kind of works for everyone just because tea tree is antibacterial and really cleans your skin without stripping it.

I’ve used tons of different moisturizers and my lips tend to get dry again very quickly. Vaseline is the only thing that kind of sticks and stays moisturized and hydrated. And when I put lipstick or gloss over it, it holds it without it coming off.
I use this pencil to fill in the bottom a little bit to give it extra fullness. Again, I’ve tried a ton of brow pencils and this is the one I’ve found that I really love.
This little Prada fanny pack is a lifesaver. I was in Toronto filming and somebody actually stole my purse. I got it back, but they had stolen some items out of it. The fanny pack has been the best thing because I can basically carry everything on me. So if I’m at a bar, or at dinner, or if I’m dancing or whatever it is, I can make sure I have it strapped to my body and that my belongings stay belonging to me.
My little cousin told me about this line. I started using it and immediately I saw a difference. Fewer little lines around my eyes, around my forehead, around my mouth. It corrected some discoloration, it made my skin brighter, and it is just really, really works. When I use it at night, I wake up in the morning and I just look way fresher and more youthful and like I’ve gotten good rest.
I try a lot of everything, and I know what works and what doesn’t work for me, and this stuff is amazing. I take it with each meal about five to ten minutes before and it helps your body break down food.
The first thing I do in the morning is read the word, pray, say my affirmations, and it really sets my day. Because I travel a lot, I wanted a bible that was the perfect size to take with me and be able to study it and put lines in it. And I just thought it was really, really cute.
