Michelle Williams, singer, star of Broadway's Aida, 23
What's the first thing you notice when you look in the mirror?
"The mole on my cheek. My grandmother has one, and my dad does, too; so mine makes me feel connected to them."
What's the best beauty advice anyone's ever given you?
"Before I got into Destiny's Child, I had bushy eyebrows and a mustache. Reggie Wells [Oprah's makeup artist] met me at a model search and told me, 'You cannot succeed in this industry like that!' I went right to a salon and got waxed."
What's in your bag?
"L'Oréal Double Extend mascara, Cover Girl Perfect Blend Eye Liner, MAC Studio Moisture Fix because my skin can get dry, MAC Studio Fix powder/foundation because I can look shiny under stage lights, and a coin purse filled with MAC Lipglass."
What product can't you live without?
"I go crazy if I don't have Pond's Makeup Remover Towelettes. I never go to sleep with my makeup on."
