Brenda Song is opening up about just how much her relationship with Macaulay Culkin boosts her self-confidence.

While attending an event to celebrate the launch of Clarins' new Multi-Active collection on Friday, the Social Network actress, 35, spoke to PEOPLE about when she feels the most beautiful — and “it has a lot to do with my partner," she says.

“I think he's the one that really made me feel the most beautiful when I'm about to go to bed and I have nothing on my face and I'm so tired,” she says of Culkin, 43. “We're about to watch some really silly thing on TV, and he looks at me, and [I’m like], ‘He makes me feel so confident.’ "

“I have someone who makes me feel beautiful without a stitch of makeup on, because he has to sit through my 20-minute self-care at night,” she adds.

Meanwhile, the Home Alone star doesn’t have much of a skincare routine at all, according to Song.

“He has no skincare routine,” she tells PEOPLE. “If he washes his face with water at night, I'm lucky. I'm the one that has to smear stuff on his face.”

“He's like a boy who's like, ‘I've never had to do anything. I'm never going to do anything.’ I was like, ‘Not the case for me,’ ” she continues. "It took me an hour and a half to get ready [for this event], and he came up at the last minute and in five minutes, he was done.”

Song also opened up about how her style and self-care routines have changed since her Disney Channel days, reflecting on the Y2K theme of the event, which featured a performance from Christina Aguilera.

“It was the best time of my life,” Song says, recalling her early 2000s days. “It was very easy for me to pull into some Y2K. I feel like that was my youth, and at the time, I was going out with my friends and living my best Christina Aguilera life."

To keep that young-looking skin, Song says she uses the new Clarins Multi-Active moisturizer, and aims to keep her skincare routine simple by abiding by a few key guidelines.

“I didn't realize that my skin was feeling just so dull and fatigued, and it was called stress aging, and I was like, ‘What?’” she explains. “What I love about the multi-active moisturizer is that it does so many things in one product. For me, being so busy, I don't have to have a six-step routine. I just have something that does it all, and I don't have to think about it.”
