Lucy Hale is exposed to some of the best beauty pros thanks to spending time on the Pretty Little Liars set and her role as brand ambassador for Mark cosmetics. So it’s no surprise that she’s picked up a few makeup tips of her own.

“I definitely am the girl that goes to Sephora and spends way too much,” she tells Yahoo Style in a new interview, showing off her chic bob (and abs!) in sexy photos. “I’m always buying things I’ll never even use. In life, I just sort of use concealer and mascara and a bold brow. I try to keep it simple. If I’m going out, I love a good lash.”

Her Pretty Little Liars character Aria, however, goes for a bolder look in the beauty department — which helped Hale with her own off-screen look.

“On PLL we have to enhance things, so we have to put those lashes on sometimes,” she says. “You learn a lot about what colors work for your eye. I’ve learned to contour pretty well. I can apply fake lashes pretty well. And I can cover a zit like nobody’s business.” (We also wonder if she learned how to clip in her own faux bangs, since she wears them so well in the photo shoot!)

Hale says her style has also changed since she started on the hit ABC Family show.

“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more classic,” she shares. “When I was younger, I was more outrageous. Now I want to keep it simple. Some days I’ll be more classic; some days I’ll be grunge.”

And if there was one label she could wear all the time it be a total classic: “Chanel is kind of the ultimate for me.”
