Kelly Ripa is just saying it like it is. The Live! with Kelly and Michael co-host had no qualms about revealing her top beauty secrets when a viewer called in to Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, July 15.

"Beauty products—Botox. And that's pretty much it," the 43-year-old told host Andy Cohen and fellow guest Anderson Cooper. "People are very ritualistic about their beauty routine. I am not."

"I'm not advocating one way or the other but I'm just saying Botox has changed my life. It's cut my getting ready time in half," she continued.

Cohen, seemingly taken aback by her honesty, asked her to explain further. "Because suddenly my eyelids are no longer resting on my eyelashes," she said. "I think the key with anything is knowing what you look like and being a minimalist."

Botox has been a friend of the 5' 3" star for some time now. Last February, she admitted to using Botox on her eyes and armpits in Elle magazine. "Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist's life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now," she explained.
