Using oil before you break out your makeup remover might be the life hack you didn't know you needed. To DeWanda, by using Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Oil, she gets a lot of the heavy lifting out of the way and prepares her skin to be primed, primped, and purified to perfection.

Le Mieux Phyto-Nutrient Cleansing Gel

Made with 12 botanical extracts that help hydrate, tone, and removed makeup, the Le Mieux Phyto Nutrient Cleansing Gel is said to help restore balance and is good for all skin types. DeWanda explained that a makeup artist put her on this cleanser and she's been hooked ever since:

"I found about this cleansing gel from working on set. A lot of makeup artists who work on these sets kind of have to be experts so they spent a lot of time trial and error seeing what works for actors, what doesn't break them out the next day. Usually, the stuff is vegan, it's not tested on animals."

Clarisonic Mia Prima Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush

Beauty trends may come and go, but facial cleansing brushes are forever. While somewhat pricey, these beauty tools can help clean and exfoliate skin which is why DeWanda uses this product up to three times a week:

"I got this, I feel like it was only a couple of months ago. Again, product junkie. Anytime there's a new fad or a new thing, I'm into it, I'm going to try it. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it does not. But I have found that in terms of a daily exfoliant, it's really effective. Especially going from New York to LA can be a bit finicky, and I have less drying and flaking if I make sure I exfoliate."

You can't pick apples from an orange tree and you can't take skincare advice from your homegirl just because she likes to watch YouTube videos. DeWanda says that she picks up a number of her beauty tips from the experts in her life, including her esthetician, who put her own this little-known beauty tip:

"My esthetician says that you're supposed to put the mask on first so then everything in the mask can actually penetrate into the skin when you steam. You know, it makes sense. It's science."

SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Face

But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.
