Want to know how your favorite helicopter EMT stays gorgeous?

Aimee Garcia plays a butt-kicking helicopter pilot and Iraqi war vet as the star of NBC’s medical drama, Trauma but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know a thing or two about staying pretty. “I get to sit in a $2 million helicopter and get my hands dirty with fake blood. It’s a very physical show and I get bruises the size of softballs,” Aimee says. Her quick fix? “I cover them up with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage – just mix the two shades together and your purple bruise is gone!” Check out more of the Latina beauty’s secrets below!

Aimee’s Beauty Obsessions!

  1. Water: “I drink a TON of water – like a gallon a day! People underestimate how quickly your skin becomes dehydrated, especially when you’re traveling which I do a lot because we’re shooting in San Francisco and I live in LA.”
  2. SPF: “I put on the Murad Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 every single day even if its rainy, foggy or if I’m going to be inside. Sunscreen is a big thing for me especially since I have freckles on my cheeks.”
  3. Natural Makeup: “I love Sue Devitt’s Triple C-Weed Pressed Powder. It evens out my skin tone without looking like I have any makeup on. Its truly obnoxious if you can actually see the makeup, I think its much better for people to just think, “wow, that girl looks really great! She looks so fresh and beautiful!” That to me is the best type of makeup.”
  4. Brows: “I’m a big eyebrows girl. I like to keep things really natural and I think eyebrows really frame your face.” (Aimee gets her arches shaped by brow guru Anastasia Soare in LA.)
  5. Lip Balm: “I am obsessed with Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. I never leave the house without it and I reapply more than I probably should. It’s a little bit of an oral fixation. But its just yumminess and goodness – I almost don’t want to kiss people because I don’t want to share!”
  6. Frizz Free Hair: “I have kind of frizzy hair because I am half Puerto Rican so I really like Jonathan products. When I use his conditioner I don’t have to put any sort of balm afterwards because it just smoothes away any unruly hairs.” – Marta Topran
