Mimi Keene's makeup routine is all about the glow and while we'll soon be bidding farewell to her Sex Education counterpart, Ruby Matthews, her product recs can live forever in our beauty arsenals.

Dishing on her everyday staples for Vogue's Beauty Secrets, the actress revealed she's a big fan of Glossier's serum hybrid, Futuredew (and yes, we have a few Futuredew dupes for you), along with a number of other cult-fave products and brands and naturally, we've been influenced.

So, if you're a lover of all things glowy makeup and want to heal your broken heart over Sex Education season 4—aka the last ever season—with some retail therapy, we've got you...

Mimi Keene makeup: what does she use?

In her Beauty Secrets video, Mimi Keene revealed that Glossier's Futuredew is one of her all-time favorite products "in the world," because it gives you that "dewy base." She applies it like a primer, before going in with her concealer—the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk concealer to be exact (which pairs perfectly with our fave non-comedogenic foundations, Luminous Silk foundation).

Mimi added that she prefers more of a lightweight look day-to-day, especially with having to wear heavier and long-wearing makeup on set—and opts for cream or balm-like products.

And in case you were looking for a way to articulate Mimi's general, radiant beauty vibe, the actress said: "I kinda wanna go for Sandra Bullock when she's running with the dogs in Practical Magic, round the corner to meet her husband. That scene, the way she is, her vibe—the look, her hair in the wind—she was just doing gardening before that, that's my vibe." And can we just say, we've never related to anything more.

It's also important to bear in mind that skin prep is key for achieving that 'glowing from within' effect, with Mimi reminding us not to skip our best face sunscreens (she uses this La Roche Posey one available at ULTA) and of course, our moisturizers.
