Whether she was wearing spandex in Girls Just Want to Have Fun or jaunting around Manhattan in, well, more spandex as Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker has always had us asking, “How does she do it?” She even starred in the movie, I Don’t Know How She Does It as if to confirm her role as one of Hollywood’s most elusive actresses. However, in a recent interview for Refinery29, SJP revealed that her secrets aren’t all that different than ours — in fact, some of Parker’s beauty secrets involve the drugstore.

Looking great doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, the star of HBO’s new show, Divorce, heads to the drugstore for some of her most prized makeup and beauty supplies.

These are some of her favorites:
