We’ve been fans of Shay Mitchell since she first graced our TV screens back in 2010, playing the part of Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars. We knew immediately this flawless brunette with model-like qualities would be a force to follow in the realm of beauty, and since her silver-screen debut, she’s never let us down. From red carpet events to fashion week appearances (and some of the best Instagram selfies to date), Mitchell has 100% reached icon status in our eyes. Honouring her 29th birthday today, we’ve rounded up her best makeup moments. Keep reading to see these looks, and shop our favourite products to achieve her style.
In 2010, Mitchell attended the Los Angeles premiere for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with frost-coloured lids that were the perfect complement to her icy blue attire.
At the 2011 Young Hollywood Awards, she opted for Barbie-pink lips and a similar shade of blush to match. If you’re a fan of this pop of colour, try MAC’s Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Divine Choice (£21).
Mitchell attended the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in 2012 showing off her flawlessly sun-kissed skin. Achieve this look with Guerlain’s Terracotta 2016 Original Bronzing Powder (£40).
Bold red lips proved to be a strong look for her at the Belvedere (RED) Event in 2012. Our product pick? We love Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Vulupté Shine Lipstick in Rouge Tuxedo (£26).
Mitchell’s lips were again the focal point of her beauty routine at the 2014 PaleyFest, this time in fuchsia.
Mitchell got her bronze on at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, showing off her razor-sharp cheekbones. She opted for coral-coloured lips to match her outfit.
At the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, Mitchell lightened up her locks, which complemented that golden glow we envy.
Is it us, or does she just get more gorgeous with age? At Elyse Walker’s 10th Annual Pink Party, Mitchell turned heads in a ruby red lip, which complemented her earrings. And let’s not ignore her well-groomed brows. We recommend adding BBrowbar’s Brow Kit (£40) to your beauty arsenal.
She took a cue from Pretty Little Liars, giving us some serious drama at the 2014 GQ Men of The Year Party. For a long-lasting liner, we like Burberry Beauty’s Effortless Kohl Eyeliner in Jet Black (£19).
We’re not even sure where to begin with this sultry look she donned at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Mitchell stunned at this event in a deep berry lip, not to mention her impeccably sculpted cheeks. On the hunt for a solid highlighter? We’re fans of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bar of Gold Light-Reflecting Highlighter (£32).
While visiting Extra last year, she brought the drama with her, this time lining her dark lids in a midnight blue. Try Bobbi Brown’s Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner (£19).
Along with her bright red pout, Mitchell gave us fuller, darker brows at New York Comic-Con 2015. Looking to add more definition your brows? Go for Kevyn Aucoin’s The Precision Brow Pencil (£21).
At MTV’s EMAs in 2015, Mitchell again opted for more drama around the eyes, this time polishing her lips in a neutral shade.
Earlier this year at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards, she stunned in gold and brown tones. She softened her brows at this occasion and grabbed our attention with her ultra-long lashes. If you’re not a fan of lash-enhancing serums or extensions, try these high-volume Huda Beauty False Lashes (from £13).
