Spring Beauty Special!

DEAR READER, I am so excited to be guest editing PEOPLE’s beauty pages this week! Working with Avon’s mark. brand for the past two years, I’ve had the chance to indulge my inner product junkie, and I can’t wait to share some of the tips I’ve learned! I’ve also been inspired by the amazing things the company does for women, which has helped shape my personal beauty philosophy. I believe that embracing what makes you different or unique is what makes you beautiful.

HOW SHE GETS HER GLOW!

“What’s cool about this palette is that there are different shades in it,” says the Pretty Little Liars star. “It works on any skin tone and leaves your face looking dewy.” mark. Touch & Glow Coral Glow, $16; meetmark.com

All About Lucy!

‘I LOVE DOING MY OWN MAKEUP, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING RELAXING ABOUT KNOWING THE REALLY GREAT PEOPLE I WORK WITH WILL DO A GOOD JOB’

HER SELFIE SECRET!

If you thought she’d mastered the snap, think again. “I’m still learning, so if I want to take a picture, I’ll grab my best friend, or my dog!”

ON HER AMAZING EYEBROWS …

My favorite feature is my really thick eyebrows! But, I hated them as a kid.

I inherited my dad’s brows. I went through a phase where I overplucked them and that looked terrible.

Finally in my late teens I fell in love with them and I found a shape that really works for my face.

I’ve never gotten them professionally done, I do them myself!

My advice is don’t get too ambitious and stick to your natural shape.

I always have tweezers, I keep them in my purse.

And I’ve tried a lot of different brow pencils, but I always go back to this Dior one.

HER NEW SHORT DO!

First, tell us why you cut your hair!

I’ve always had long hair, it was my security blanket. When we wrapped season 5 of Pretty Little Liars, I wanted to do something drastic, so I showed up at the salon and said, “Do whatever you want.” Now I can’t imagine having long hair.

You’re 25, any signs of a quarter-life crisis?

It’s so funny because I still look like I’m 17 years old, but while I was on the set of PLL last year my hairstylist found a gray hair. I was like, “Get it out!”

Speaking of PLL, what do you think about your character’s style?

After playing Aria for so many years, I’ve grown to love the outlandish, weird things she wears. I actually get excited to go to fittings and say, “Let’s go crazier.”

We need to know: What’s your spirit animal?

A unicorn, because they’re very mysterious and more than meets the eye.

Do you have date night makeup?

I haven’t been on a date in a long time, but I like a little contour and a light smoky eye.

When do you feel your most beautiful?

After a facial, I love having really clean skin. I struggled with it growing up and am finally at the point where I feel comfortable going out without any makeup on.

Do you have any bad beauty habits?

I have three. I drink way too much coffee – I’m obsessed with it – and not enough water, I pick at zits and I go through phases where I bite my nails.
