Last week, I was lucky enough to be provided with a little insider insight by a representative for Glossier, one of my favorite “Instagram beauty” brands.

It got me thinking—what other beauty products does a former first lady use before taking to the stage to discuss her best-selling book or charity projects?
Thankfully, with a bit of digging, I was able to uncover a few beauty products that Carl Ray, Michelle’s official makeup artist, swears by when doing Obama’s event makeup. Keep scrolling to shop first lady–approved beauty products.
