What do Shay Mitchell and Kylie Jenner have in common? Both beauties share makeup artist Ariel Tejada, which means the Pretty Little Liars star has direct access to the uber popular lip kits before everyone else. Are you jealous yet?
"Yes, I do," Shay told Life & Style exclusively about her envy-inducing lip kit hookup. "It's funny. I just ran out of her first palette eyeshadow, and [Ariel] sent her a photo, and said, 'Shay's literally used these to the bare minimum.' And so she sent me the exact same palette, which was awesome. So, thank you Kylie." As for her favorite in the collection, Shay didn't hesitate to name the Kourt collection. "It's like a reddish-orange," she added, forgetting the name of her go-to shade. "I love that one."
Shay might not star on the Freeform show any longer, but the 31-year-old is busy teaming up with Allergan for the Know Your Birth Control campaign. Just like her character Emily Fields on the popular series, Shay hopes her involvement with the campaign will inspire young people to have important conversations about "taboo" topics.
"We definitely tackled a lot of things on the show, which is one of the many reasons why it was so great to be a part of it. Even playing the character that I did, it opened up a lot of conversations for girls and guys to have that initial conversation with their families about whatever it is that they may not have felt comfortable talking about before," she explained. "So, I loved that the show was a great vehicle for them to start those conversations."
So, what's next for Shay? Along with getting an unlimited supply of lip kits, you can catch Shay on YouTube — where she shares her own makeup tutorials alongside Ariel. She is also filming the TV series You alongside Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley.
