1. The most surprising thing in my makeup bag is ___

Sunblock! I don't like to tan my face because it's bad for wrinkles.

2. I go to bed with makeup on __days a week

Seven (laughs). That is not good for your skin, but I'm blessed with good genes.

3. I'm most proud of the Viva Glam campaign because ___

One hundred percent of the money made from selling these lipsticks goes to the M.A.C AIDS Fund. Every single cent.

• M.A.C Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick, $14.50;

4. I miss being a brunette when ___

I have to get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out.

5. The first thing I do in the morning is ___

My yoga instructor tells me to do this: Try to think compassionate thoughts about yourself for five minutes. I don't always do it, but I try to, and I encourage everyone reading this to try. There's a lot of criticism and scrutiny in anyone's business, so just spend five minutes thinking nice thoughts about yourself.

• IVORY Bar Soap, $2.50 (four pack); at drugstores

6. The best beauty tip my mom taught me was ___

Ivory soap to wash your face. Really simple.

7. If I could get one treatment at a spa, it would be ___

A foot massage (glances at her mile-high platforms). Just my feet.

8. My biggest beauty missteps include __

When I question myself. Just go with your gut. You know, be yourself. Whenever you try to be someone else, it's boring.

9. My style icons are ___

I have so many. My mother ... and Princess Diana.

10. Between mascara and lashes I usually go with ___

Lately neither. I think it's more modern not to wear any lashes or mascara. I just wear eyeliner.

11. The last thing I do before bed is ___

Brush my teeth and turn on a song or the television to fall asleep. I actually like to fall asleep to horror movies.

12. As a teenager my favorite fragrance was ___

Versace Baby Rose Jeans. I also liked Jean Nate from Duane Reade.

Her must-have? Ivory soap!

One of her faves growing up.
