The Avon Brand Ambassador says she's loving bright melon and orange shades right now

Lucy Hale‘s favorite holiday is coming up — and it’s not what you might expect it to be.

While other people look forward to Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July and other festive days throughout the year, the Pretty Little Liars actress can’t wait to celebrate National Lipstick Day on July 29. And luckily for the star, who’s Avon‘s Brand Ambassador, Hale has countless lip color options to choose from.

Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipsticks are amazing. I have them in all different colors, but right now I’m into this melon [shade],” the actress told us during our 5 Questions video series, where she wore a bright orange-red lip color called ‘Spark’ from Mark. by Avon’s Pout Velvet Lip Paint collection.

It’s clear Hale isn’t afraid to experiment with her beauty looks, whether it’s her lipsticks or her hair. Over the past year, the actress’s bob has been getting shorter and shorter with the help of her longtime hair stylist Kristin Ess.

“My hair just keeps getting shorter and shorter. There is no limit for me,” Hale said. But letting go of her long strands wasn’t an easy decision. “When I was younger my hair was my security blanket, and then I just started experimenting and taking it an inch shorter. And then I went for the lob and then I went for a bob and now, I don’t even know what length this is!”

Hale says “there’s nothing [she] wouldn’t try,” even chopping all her hair off eventually. “I would definitely do a pixie cut!” she told us.

Besides expressing her personality through her hair and makeup, the 28-year-old actress also gets meaningful tattoos on her body, like matching initials on her finger with her PLL castmates in honor of the show’s series finale.

But Hale says the most special addition to her tattoo collection is one she got done about a month ago.

“It’s my lightbulb that I got on the back of my arm. My name Lucy in Latin means ‘as of light,’ and I actually have ‘light’ tattooed on me too,” Hale said. “But this is a representation of my name.”
