From slaying on the big screen as Catwoman to strolling the red carpet, Zoë Kravitz's complexion always looks flawless. And after watching her glow this weekend on the Academy Awards stage, we had to wonder — how?

Kravitz's skin always maintains a moisturized dewy sheen, while not looking oily or greasy. If you're looking to emulate The Batman star's effortlessly radiant skin, you're in luck. Kravitz sat down with Vogue's Beauty Secrets series to spill her rigorous skincare routine and provide tips on how we, too, can achieve that enviable glow.

The star starts her routine by sharing her (equally flawless) celebrity parents' advice — to use organic, natural skincare products made with clean ingredients. "Beauty starts from within," she says while lathering her face with her pumpkin-scented cleanser. "From your health, your gut, your skin routine, being hydrated." 

Among her favorite natural products is this cream deodorant from Milk + Honey. While rubbing a small dollop beneath her arms, she laughs, "A lot of them don't work... This is one of the first ones that works, truly works." Which is great for us, because like Kravitz, we also want to avoid putting harmful products near our breasts, all while smelling lovely.

Using natural deodorants is a journey, because a lot of them don't work. But Zoe, who is very aware of not putting harmful ingredients near her lymph nodes and breasts, finally found one that does. Using all natural ingredients, the Milk + Honey deodorant, "lasts all day and smells delicious." Plus, it's available at an insanely affordable price.

The star also talks about her journey with taking care of her hair. "I think a lot of Brown girls can probably identify with that," she says while explaining how she came to love her natural hair. "We're basically taught to hate our hair... so the braids have been a really good way to protect my hair and be able to be playful with it, without putting any chemicals in it." To keep her signature strands soft, Kravitz dabs coconut oil along the ends. 

Hydrate pesky dry patches with this versatile holy grail product from Kopari. "I use this literally all over my body," Kravitz says of the coconut oil, while dabbing it onto her braided hair.

As for makeup, Kravitz also keeps it fairly natural. "You don't have to use makeup to cover yourself up. You can use it to highlight." The multi-step routine relies heavily on moisturizers and serums to keep her skin fresh and soft. Followed by just a soft smudge of eye pencil and a dab of lipstick, the minimal, natural makeup look was complete.

Below, shop all the products and recreate Kravitz's routine at home. 

Kravitz begins her multi-step skincare routine with this pumpkin cleanser from Rhonda Allison that she deems, "smells like Christmas."

$13

Kravitz loves this serum, which she says is nice and light, perfect for keeping your skin hydrated during the warmer summer months.

$325

"It has a really nice, minty fresh feeling," Kravitz says of the hydrating mist spray, which leaves her skin visibly dewey and glowing.

$18

The Catwoman actress knows the importance of protecting her skin from UV rays. "You can use it on your face and body," she says while dabbing on the peanut scented lotion made from sustainable ingredients.

$42

To protect the thin and delicate skin under her eyes, the actress uses this lush eye cream from Retrouvé. The rich, water-free cream gently moisturizes using a combination of Squalane and pharmaceutical-grade Cholesterol Esters for instant hydration.

$415

The star keeps her skin from looking too shiny and her makeup in place with the Fenty Mattifying Primer while shouting out Fenty creator, Rihanna, who she refers to as "so cool."

$34

Steering clear a full face of foundation, Kravitz uses just a little bit of this cult-favorite concealer to brighten under her eyes and even out her complexion. "It's a great happy medium," she says while dabbing the makeup onto her skin and blending with her fingers.

$38

Zoe adds a touch of color to her cheeks and eyes with the Nude Stix blush and bronzer, saying that she enjoys when her cheeks and eyes use the same color. "It feels natural, consistent...a natural blushy feel," she says of the easily blendable formula which adds a subtle flush to her face.

$34

This double-ended highlighter and balm duo is a huge hit with Kravitz, who loves the natural glow she gets from the two-in-one product. For a little "extra zhush," she dabs the highlighter in the corner of her eyes for a subtle but immediate way to brighten her face.

$48

The star enhances her pout with this gel liner from Marc Jacobs Beauty, sharing her technique of going in "soft and slowly build," for a line that looks natural, rather than harsh. 

$26

Add subtle color to your pout with this easily layerable favorite from YSL. Available in sixteen matte shades, the lipstick is comfortable (and longlasting) enough to wear all day.

$39

Everyone should have a signature scent, and we love this warm and spicy one from YSL, favored by Kravitz. She finishes her beauty routine with a spritz on each wrist, one in the air and dabbing it into her hair.
