While sitting in her bathroom, Ocasio-Cortez shared the skin care and makeup products she uses to bring her statement “red lip routine” to life, and her perspectives on self-esteem and a gender-related political phenomenon known as the Pink Tax, which is attributed to a form of price discrimination for women.

The 30-year-old Democratic lawmaker from New York said she achieves her everyday look by prepping her skin with an Estee Lauder toner, an unspecified vitamin C serum, and an Acure moisturizer before adding a Bioré sunscreen that is SPF 50.

For her makeup, she uses concealer, a tinted moisturizer from Nars Cosmetics and an Estee Lauder foundation. She uses a Glossier cream blush and pop star Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty contour stick for a chiseled look. She also uses eye shadows, a crayon liner and mascara to bring out the definition of her eyes.

To get her trademark red lips, she applies liquid lipstick from Stila Cosmetics in the shade “Beso,” which retails for $22.
