SELF's July Music Issue is packed with celebs, including Victoria Justice, pop singer and star of Victorious, who gives her best beauty tricks for a natural, effortlessly chic look.
Lighten Up Your Look
"Don’t be afraid to play up your natural beauty. Natural is always such a chic look. Plus, it is so great to let your skin breathe."
"It’s best to look like yourself. Play up your best features. If you have great eyes, then accentuate those. Or if you like your lips most, then use a great, bold lip color."
"When I don’t look my best, I detox with raw foods and lots of water. It makes me feel better."
"If I have no time to touch up, I get a natural glow by pinching my cheeks 10 times really hard. Well, not so hard that I bruise."
"I don’t want to have to change my nailcolor whenever I put on a new outfit. I usually choose nude, because it matches whatever I wear."
"I wash off my makeup every night before bed. It’s my number-one rule for good skin."
"Guys like natural beauty. I get it. So find ways to make them think you are! My thing is lip stain. It stays put so you don’t have to constantly reapply."
"I swirl a wet eyeliner brush in brown shadow, then swipe it along my lash line and a little past the corner for an easy cat eye."
"I’m only 19, so I’m not super concerned about aging. But my mom didn’t drink, smoke or tan while growing up, and she looks great. I’m following her plan."
