Regina King Shares the Best Money Advice She’s Ever Gotten

Right now, today, my favorite thing in my closet are these pair of Jordans I just got. Red, black, and, white Chicago Bull ones. I’m not a Bulls fan, but I love those Jordans.

My go-to skincare products

I’m a huge, huge, huge fan of ARCONA. I’ve been faithful user of their products forever. They haven’t steered me wrong. But as of recent, I’ve been loving Pat McGrath’s lip pencils and glosses. The lip pencils just go on so smooth, like a fresh crayon to paper. You know that fresh brand new crayon that’s just sharpened and you draw that first thing on the page? They just go. They just glide. That’s how her lip pencils glide.

A beauty tip from my grandmother I’ve always loved

I’ve been using Vaseline all my life—a tip from my grandmother—because lotion sometimes can be watery. So I love the Vaseline Cocoa Radiant lotion that I put on, and then I put the OG Vaseline on top. I think it’s a win-win, especially in the winter. You don’t probably need the extra layer of the Vaseline on top in the summer, but in the winter that keeps me from…you know how people have the funky cracked heels and all of that? I’m able to keep all of that at bay and not have ashy skin in the winter.

My signature scent

When I am not using the Cocoa Radiant lotion, because that’s a pretty strong scent itself, I love Jo Malone Red Roses. I actually mix it with another perfume: the original Chloe perfume. The one with the pink bow. The OG. A squirt of the Red Roses and a squirt of that makes my Red Roses smell different.

How I like to spend a day off

My favorite way to spend the day off is by the pool with tacos and margaritas. On the rocks, Casamigos, with maybe a little bit of agave and lime juice. And shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it. Put it in the glass. No salt on the rim.

I’m born and bred in L.A., so you have to know how to make a good taco, and you have to know where to go to get a good taco. I know how to make amazing tacos. I also know how to make vegetarian tacos and vegan tacos. I’ve really been into proving people wrong, who feel like they have to have meat in their tacos. I’ve been doing tacos with, in place of the meat, a mix of purple yam and zucchini. Delicious. And everyone who has tried them is like, “Oh my God, I don’t ever have to have meat.” And I’m like, “See, I told you.”
