Bretman Rock—fashion icon, beauty guru, and YouTube sensation—is coming to the big(ger) screen. With his new reality show on MTV, Following: Bretman Rock, Rock will be giving his fans (we're talking 15.4 million Instagram followers and 8.2 million YouTube subscribers) an inside glimpse into his life as he navigates business and family, all while dealing with a global pandemic. In the latest episode of Marie Claire's "Masked and Answered," the 22-year-old social media star walked us through his favorite products and shared his secrets to looking good on camera.
To achieve supple, baby-soft skin, Rock reaches for the Frank Body Anti-Drama Face Mask. "I love this face mask because it’s super gentle and it really doesn’t break me out," says Rock. Though he's not acne-prone, the occasional pimple tends to scar. To combat any discoloration, Rock uses the Starface Hydro-Stars pimple patches. After using the FENTY Skin Fat Water Toner Serum–which Rock says "changed [his] life"–he always used SPF. "You need SPF wherever you are in the world," says Rock. His personal favorite? The CeraVe Ulta-Light Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30.
Other must-haves from Rock's skincare collection include Vaseline Petroleum Jelly and CeraVe Healing Ointment, which he dabs on the high points of his face as a highlighter. "This is perfect for no-makeup makeup looks where you just want to look glowy," says Rock. Another one of his go-to skincare products that doubles as a makeup product is the Buxom Power-Full Plump Lip Balm, which enhances the natural color of his lips. But the key to Rock's flawless on-screen skin doesn't just come in product-form. To look his best for his upcoming MTV show, sleep and water were the biggest keys. "I made sure I got 8 hours of sleep every day," says Rock. "If I’m not getting sleep I will literally break out." And when he feel like his most beautiful self? "I’m a Leo, I’m always cute."
