Emmy award-winning host Lilliana Vazquez has been capturing our hearts in front of the camera for quite some time as an interviewer, style expert and author.

Lilliana brings a presence that lights up a room — trust us, we’ve seen it! From her early beginnings as a blogger to hosting E! News, the trailblazer hasn’t allowed the pandemic to slow her down.

On Wednesday, E! announced the cancellation of E! News including Lilliana’s Pop of the Morning, which she hosted alongside Scott Tweedie and Victor Cruz. After the news broke, Lilliana shared a heartfelt post on Instagram. “Thankful for this incredible adventure and I will miss this team and crew beyond belief,” she wrote. “Yes...even the 4am call time.”

We recently chatted with my fellow Latina (aye!) about the beauty products she’s been using during quarantine. As a TV host, Liliana always has to be camera-ready even when she’s not in the studio, so she continues to maintain her usual beauty routine while quarantining.

Watch above as Lilliana walks us through three of her favorite items. Then, read below for more details.

Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation

Lilliana loves a good foundation. One thing she’s noticed is that as a Latina, she has more depth to her skin and “hyperpigmentation is like a huge issue.” She has found that Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Foundation “not only covers, but heals and helps skin.”

“What I love about it is that it has built-in SPF,” she says. “[SPF 45] is actually one of the highest SPF in cosmetics in foundation.” It has the most “beautiful finish,” it's lightweight and has SPF — a foundation dream.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Orange County

“I am a budget girl,” Lilliana reveals. “Like I am cheap to all fault.” It’s no surprise then that she is obsessed with NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Orange County. It is super highly pigmented so you can use the tiniest amount and still have a beautiful color.

Lilliana’s tip: Grab the applicator, add some product to your hand, diffuse the product and tap it into the lips to create a soft lip look.

“When you have a bold lip, it just pops on camera… We always think red or hot pink, but orange is really beautiful,” she shares.

Kiss Envy Knot Free Trio Lashes

Lilliana is all about the natural look so individual lashes are her definite go-to’s. She likes to leave people wondering if she is wearing fake lashes or not.

“When I wear these lashes, I always feel like people don’t know, they’re like ‘Wow, does she have really beautiful lashes or are those extensions?’” says Lilliana. “I want them not to know.”
