Hi Byrdie readers! I’m so excited to talk all things winter beauty in my December column. My beauty routine can change drastically based on what I’m doing on any given day. On the days when I have a red carpet event, I have the opportunity to work with an amazing makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan. I may also go see my facialist, Molly, at Kinara to have a little extra glow. On my days off, I tend to keep my routine pretty basic to give my skin a break. On the days when we are filming Pretty Little Liars, I have a lot beauty rituals…
After I wake up in the morning and take my shower, I always make sure to apply a layer of moisturizer. Right now I love mark.’s Crushing on Coconut Body Butter ($12). Next, I wash my face with Avène's Cleansing Foam ($20) and apply Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater ($7) and the Mario Badescu’s Drying Cream ($17). Next is sunscreen! I wear sunscreen every day of the year, even during the winter months.
Once I get to the Pretty Little Liars set I let the show’s makeup artist, Cindy Miguens, work her magic. My character Aria is all about the trends and usually has a glam look, so I’m often wearing false eyelashes. I’ve gotten pretty good at applying them myself!
If I’m heading back out at night, I love a bronze look with a bold lip. I start with Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer ($48)—especially if it was an early call time!—then I’ll use mark.’s Touch and Glow All Over Shimmer Cubes ($16) for a subtle glow-y look. My current favorite bold lip color is mark.’s Lipclick Lipstick ($11) in Cha Cha. I wore it on the red carpet at the CMAs and it’s been my favorite ever since.
For my hair, I recently got it cut shorter, so I’m learning how to do waves using a flat iron! I love how it creates a more natural wave.
