Karla Souza used to be the kind of person who hated waking up early to spend hours getting camera-ready. Now, 13 months into the pandemic, the former How to Get Away with Murder actor says it's one of the highlights of her day.

“After a year of not having any makeup, any hair, any anything, I was so happy to get someone to literally give me a proper hair trim and have clothes on that weren’t pajamas or sweatpants,” she says. “And then to put makeup on me again, I was like, Oh, it’s still there, it just takes 15 people and a lot of products to look a certain way."

While 5 a.m. wake-up calls might draw the occasional “ugh” from the 35-year-old, she's more than grateful to be back at work, starring in ABC's newest sitcom, Home Economics (premiering Wednesday, April 7). She plays a mom-of-three opposite Topher Grace, who plays her on-screen husband. The series is a mix between Modern Family and Life in Pieces in that it focuses on a trio of siblings, one who is part of the wealthy 1%, another who is middle-class, and one who's barely holding it together.

“There's a lot of Karla in my character, Marina,” Souza tells Glamour. “She has three kids; I have two kids under three. She's exhausted; I'm exhausted. She wishes she could have a glass of wine for every diaper she changes. And when she says she's taking a long shower, she's actually napping on the bathmat. It's just so much of me.”

But it's more than just fiction mimicking real-life on the parenting front. The Mexican-born actress speaks Spanish on the show, and points to two of the show's Latina writers, Jess Piñeda and Ashly Perez, for helping to make Marina a fully realized character. “I feel very seen and supported by that. It's a great collaboration," Souza says, adding that it also extends to the wardrobe department. “I pushed to have Marina wear clothes from Latin-owned companies and brands, and they did. I'm so glad we were able to have that representation on-screen through my wardrobe, too.”

I tried the popular KVD Beauty foundation balm, and I wouldn't buy it again

  I tried the popular KVD Beauty foundation balm, and I wouldn't buy it again Insider's beauty reporter found that the $38 KVD Beauty Good Apple foundation settled into fine lines and enhanced patches of dry skin.The company has since rebranded and launched its first two products after the tattoo artist famously sold her shares of the brand. Today, the company is seemingly thriving - largely thanks to the success of its new Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm.

Off-screen, Souza is just as committed to what she wears, especially when it comes to makeup and skin care. In between filming and breast-feeding, she filled us in on the products she can't live without for another round of Glamour's Big Beauty Questions.

What's one beauty trend you’re obsessed with right now?

I might be totally behind on this, but I love different colors on my nails. I remember watching Promising Young Woman and seeing [Carrie Mulligan's character] had that. I don’t know if that’s been happening for three years, but that’s a trend that I’m liking a lot right now! And that taking care of your skin is more important right now than makeup. I know that beauty can sometimes be enhancing what you have, but I definitely feel like if it is coming from taking care of ourselves, then that’s the holistic approach—in my view—to beauty.

What beauty rule do you think is B.S.?

Words like antiaging. Why are people using that? I am aging! Or concealer. I’m like, do I have to conceal something? Why can’t we find loving self-care words to name these things? I mean, you wouldn't say anti-breathing. So let’s find different words for that.

What's the best beauty advice you've received?

Growing up in Mexico and the U.S. and France, I went through three different cultures as a young girl and as a teen, and saw so many different standards of beauty. In France, little to no makeup was the way to go. In Mexico, it was the opposite. So what that taught me was that I could make up my own standards because the standard is me. Now, with that said, I still grew up hearing things like, ‘be proper,’ or ‘don’t speak your mind because it's not attractive,' or ‘you better look a certain way or boys won’t like you,' because of how the culture works and the system works. But luckily, as an adult, I've been able to unlearn all these things. And my hope is that with my daughter I can pass on the freedom of loving who you are. As a mother, that’s what I look forward to more than anything.

What skin care products do you swear by?

Right now my situation is that I’m breastfeeding two kids, so I am as dry as the driest desert in the land! Not even Aquaphor does it for me. So I finally found a shea butter balm called Liha from Thirteen Lune. It's a Black- and brown-owned company, everything is clean, and it comes from West Africa. You can put it on your face, on your hair, on your body, etc. But the trick for me is to put it on in the shower because the hot water helps make it easier to apply all over since it's so thick. It helps with stretch marks, too.

Something else I got at Thirteen Lune that I love is from Gloryscent Beauty—its Urbana elixir with edelweiss and ginseng. It’s one of those spraying, freshen-up kind of mists that I always take with me because I'm so dry. It revives my face, my mood, and smells lovely. And then I love anything from Beautycounter because the entire line is clean. I love their deodorant, which is all-natural.

You have such fantastic eyebrows. What do you use to fill them in or keep them in place?

Can You Dye or Bleach Your Hair While Pregnant?

  Can You Dye or Bleach Your Hair While Pregnant? OBGYNs explain why it’s probably OK to change your hair color during pregnancy — but why you may not want to nonetheless.Needless to say, pregnancy doesn't disqualify you from boredom, nor the urge to make a big beauty change. Take Hilary Duff, for example. The actor recently shared video clips to her Instagram Stories in which her entire head was covered in foils as colorists bleached her hair, creating the ideal canvas for the blue hue she then dyed it. She remarked what a good client she was, only getting up once to go to the bathroom because she's eight months pregnant.

When I get stressed, I have a tendency to pluck out my eyebrows with my fingers, and now I have little indents of spaces without hair. So I use Chanel's eyebrow pencil—mine is like an ash brown color—and I fill them in a little bit. Otherwise if I fill them in too much, they'll look like caterpillars. And I use a wax, so they don’t go all wacky on me.

What do you use to keep your hair in great shape?

Virtue shampoo, conditioner, and the healing oil. It is great. I try to go a few days between washings. So that, combined with drinking a lot of water, and taking my prenatal vitamins—since I'm still breastfeeding—all of that helps.

Finally, with so much going on in your life, how do you take a moment for yourself?

What I need to do is literally escape. I'm talking get out of the house, get in the car and take some time for yourself. I know sometimes that’s not possible, but even if it's 10 minutes away while someone else watches the kids, then I'll be a much better human being, mother, everything. But you have to ask for help, because if you just push through it, freakin’ Godzilla’s gonna come out. And you don’t want that!
