Though Fixer Upper had ended, our love for Joanna Gaines is still as strong as ever. From growing her Magnolia Home Target line filled with home decor must-haves to releasing a children’s gardening book, it’s clear our April cover girl is still full of helpful tips and tricks — something that extends to beauty, too.
In a post on her Magnolia blog, Joanna shared her makeup routine after fans flooded her social media accounts with questions, desperate to know just what she uses to attain her gorgeous glow. Alongside her go-tos, she also shared her love for doing her own makeup, especially during her Fixer Upper days, saying, “I don’t really love to have a team of people swarming me to touch up my blush and ‘shine spots.'”
