Angela Basset is 60 years old-let that sink in. The actress stunned the red carpet at the 2019 Oscars, and I cannot get over her timeless beauty. She donned a bright fuchsia gown that featured a thigh-high slit and exaggerated shoulder. But that slicked, extra-long ponytail and glowing skin of hers is another story. And I need to talk about it.

Please, Bassett, I'm begging you, teach me all of your secrets.

Also, Basset convinced me to ask my hairstylist to give me a butt-grazing ponytail my next appointment. It looks SO good.

She wore a classic smokey eye paired with a berry lip to complement her dress.

Look at her SKIN. Not a wrinkle, fine line, or pore is in sight. Aging? Basset clearly can't relate.

Although it'd be an absolute dream to be a fly on the wall to watch Basset's daily beauty routine, that won't ever happen. But what I do know is Basset is a long-time client of Dr. Barbara Sturm, who created a full skincare line inspired by Basset.

Sturm collaborated with Basset to create an entire line of skincare products, ranging from moisturizer to serum and cleanser, for skin of color. And if you want ageless, damn-near-perfect skin like Basset I highly recommend you cop this collection ASAP. I use it religiously and it's completely cleared my hyperpigmentation and left me with glowy, hydrated skin.

Thank you, Basset, for blessing us with your beauty because we are not worthy!!!
