Here’s what the 23-year-old The Vampire Diaries star had to share with the mag:
On the best beauty advice she’s been given: “Wash your face at the end of the night! There’s nothing worse than sleeping in makeup. You wake up looking like a painting that’s been left out in a rainstorm.”
On her mom not letting her change up her hair too much: “It’s true! My mom didn’t start wearing makeup or hairspray until she was, like, 40— she’s the least vain person ever. When I became an actress, she said, ‘I know they need your hair for this show, but you’re going to need your hair for the rest of your life, so take care of it.’ Since that day, I’ve been very diligent. I do hair masks multiple times a week, and I don’t blow-dry it if I’m not working.”
On growing up: “I was kind of a jock in school. Beauty wasn’t something I spent a lot of time on. Now I ask every hair and makeup artist I work with for tips. I’m in beauty school by association!”
