Not sure 'bout you guys, but our fave beauty crush has always and will forever be Pretty Little Liars actress, Shay Mitchell.
The girl has srsly flawless skin and the mind constantly boggles over how the heck she reaches that level of ~*glow*~.
Well, boggle no further 'coz Shay has just spilled her biggest beauty secrets like a pretty little liar would!
"I don’t think there is any beauty trend that I hate because something may not work on me but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work on other people,” she told Coveteur.com.
“That’s what makes beauty and makeup so fun! If everybody did the same thing, it would be such a boring world, so I love that people try different trends and play around with makeup—that’s what it’s meant for.”
After years of sitting in the makeup chair and studying profesh makeup artists' tips, tricks and routines, here's the biggest lesson Shay has learned.
“What I learned from working with makeup artists is [how important it is to] take care of myself,” she reveals. “If I’ve been traveling a lot or I haven’t been drinking enough water, or getting enough sleep, my skin tends to get really dry and flaky.”
She adds: “I wear a lot of makeup during the day, but then I’m sure to take it all off as soon as I get home. I try to get as much sleep and drink as much water as I can, too.”
She then went on to discuss what she’d do if she only had five minutes to get ready – a girl’s biggest nightmare, right!?
Here’s Shay’s way…
“[If I had five minutes to get ready] I would probably do an all-over light foundation. Using the matte Smashbox palette I would do a very natural wash into the crease, a little mascara, a little highlight, a little contour, maybe a little strobing,” she advises.
”I don’t know if we’ve passed five minutes yet! My beauty routine is probably a good 15 minutes. Give me 15 minutes and I’ll be okay, give me five and I’m not coming out [laughs].”
A massive T freaking Y to Shay for sharing her ~sage~ advice with us.
Now go forth and try out Shay's tips and enjoy your flawless skin!
