The ‘Extra’ host’s makeup is always flawless — and she reveals that her makeup faves are affordable drugstore buys! HollywoodLife.com also learned EXCLUSIVELY just how the beauty keeps fit and healthy.

Maria Menounos certainly knows a thing or two about health and beauty. So it was no surprise to us when she paired up with Avacados from Mexico to spread awareness about good nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle. She shared easy tips for keeping fit and eating healthily with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY

Maria Menounos Shares Her Makeup Favorites

Maria, 35, is a natural beauty and she plays up her gorgeous features with just a few touches of affordable makeup picks! Her favorite drugstore buy is L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara, and she swears by Dermalogica skincare and Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes. 

But while Maria has some beauty staples, she also knows that true beauty comes from the inside. Self-esteem is important in everyday life — but also vital for facing down bullies. Maria says that it’s best to “involve yourself in activities in school and your community where you are receiving positive comments for your work and who you are to combat the negative.” She says that everyone should “focus on what you want out of life and know that in the end, those bullies generally will never be happy.”

Maria Menounos’ Nutrition

Maria is the author of New York Times best-selling cookbook The Every Girl’s Guide to Life, so we had to ask her about her favorite easy recipes! She likes to keep her food simple and easy:

I can make a few different options on a Sunday and have healthy delicious snacks/meals in the fridge all week long to bring to work, or snack on at home.

Maria says that she really loves eating “lentil salad and bean patties” as well as a “green smoothie with avocado and Greek yogurt.” So healthy — and delicious! The star knows that the real key to a healthy lifestyle is eating well and working out:

I try to get my workout throughout the natural course of my day. Whether its calf lifts while I wait on set, taking the stairs, [or] walking, I’m always active.

When she’s not on set or just relaxing at home, Maria explains that she likes to have fun being fit:

[I like] to hike with my dogs, play basketball and play volleyball. Eating healthy also helps me maintain my figure.

We think that’s some pretty great advice, HollywoodLifers! Tell us what YOU think below.
