Lucy Hale knows a thing or two about switching up her look. After spending seven years playing the eccentric Aria on the drama-thriller Pretty Little Liars, she’s now found herself stepping into some pretty different roles. Soon enough, we’ll get to see her as Olivia in the new horror movie Truth or Dare, and she’s starring as Stella in a new comedy-drama, Life Sentence, where she plays a woman who’s just found out she’s beat terminal cancer.

We recently chatted with Hale while she was promoting Degree’s Black+White deodorant, which works to prevent sweat stains and white marks on, you guessed it, black and white clothing. “Degree was looking for someone who already rewears items because the whole purpose of this deodorant is that it doesn’t leave the marks that makes us not want to rewear our favorite clothes,” Hale said.

We chatted more with Hale on her face mask obsession, skin care must-haves, and what she learned sitting in the Pretty Little Liars makeup chair.

Are there any beauty secrets you picked up from being on the set of PLL?

We would always do face masks in the trailer before our makeup just to be hydrated—and our eye patches, we probably went through hundreds of thousands of eyepatches on that show. And it was there that I learned how to put on individual lashes very well. You have to do it with tweezers; it’s about having a steady hand. I’m always constantly looking at hair stylists and the angle of their iron because I’ve learned it’s not necessarily what tool you use but the angle at which its used. When I cut my hair off shorter, you’d think it’d be easier to style hair, but it’s not, it’s a lot harder. I’ve had my hair short for a couple years now, and I’m just now getting the hang of how to do it.

What’s your favorite thing to do with your new short hair?

I typically let it air dry. I put in an air dry cream and let it do its own thing, but if I’m doing it myself, there’s this new way that Kristin Ess, who does my hair, taught me. What you do is you get your straightener and you sort of S it *holds up a piece of her hair in an S shape* and just tap on it. You kind of swirl it. I don’t know what it’s called, but she calls it Cool Girl hair. So I’m like, “Give me the Cool Girl hair.” So that’s what I do now just because it’s really easy.

On Jimmy Fallon, you mentioned you love to do a face mask selfie. What are your top face masks for a selfie?

I actually just bought this new one by Tatcha that’s lavender; it’s so pretty. I hope it’s doing something good, but if it’s not, it just looks really pretty. There’s the bubbling face mask, which is really fun. You can get it on Amazon. I mean the ones with all the animal faces, the sheet masks, are always fun. I love popping one of those on on a plane and freaking someone out. I’ve got no shame in that. You should see my face mask drawer at home, it’s kind of crazy.

What are you looking forward to beauty-wise this spring?

My hair’s a lot lighter now, and I’m transitioning to go even lighter. This is the third round of going lighter, and I keep wanting to go more. This is my summer hair.

Would you ever go bright blonde?

Yeah, I would. I think everyone’s doing it right now, so it’s not like the original thing to do but absolutely.

It’s so nice to be at that age when you feel comfortable in your own skin.

You mentioned you love skincare. What are your top three must-have items?

Bioderma Micellar Water. I have this iS Clinical Serum that’s called Active Serum which, I don’t know what it does, but it just sort of protects you when you’re traveling and just from life in general. And then there’s this toner that I guess has been around for a really long time by Biologique Recherche. It’s the P50 lotion that is notorious for smelling really weird. It smells like fennel, so I get really weird about wearing it, but it’s pretty magical. It’s from some European country. It’s hard to find, even hard to find online. I can’t find it in LA; I can only find it New York. I think a place called Rescue Spa sells all their stuff.

I was just looking at their Instagram yesterday!

You have to go there anyway because it’s amazing. 100 percent. There’s this girl, Diana; I’ve only been twice but usually what I do is I walk in and tell them my needs and concerns and just let them do whatever.

What kind of makeup do you wear now when you want to feel powerful?

I love popping on a bold lip and keeping everything else clean. I think there’s something so sexy in a subtle way of pulling your hair back and popping on a lip and keeping the focus there. But also I’m at the point now where I feel really comfortable without anything. And it’s so nice to be at that age when you feel comfortable in your own skin. It takes a while to come into your own, but I’m there.
