When you’re standing in 100-degree weather amid 5,000 screaming fans, you just might break a sweat. Not so for Pretty Little Liars’s lovely Shay Mitchell, who braved the heat gracefully to greet adoring fans for the Teen Vogue Back-to-School Saturday event held at The Grove in Los Angeles. While others would surely wilt, Shay kept it cool by playing up her youthful beauty via a mix of glam elements: lush lashes, a shimmer-enhanced smoky eye and beyond perfectly groomed brows. But what clenched this cool girl’s appeal in our eyes was the addition of playful pink cheeks and lips that gave her a glowing, fresh look that we won’t soon be forgetting.
Back-to-schoolers, you may want to jot down some notes on how to achieve such gorgeous grace under fiery temps with this tip from celebrity makeup artist Gabriel Almodovar: “For a chic daytime look like Shay’s, pick pinks—they work on every skin tone and always look pretty and fresh. I like the combination of a soft pink blush and a trendy pink lip with shine,” he says, recommending Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor in Party Pink as the go-to pucker hue. Beauty class dismissed!
