Chrisley Knows Best star Savannah Chrisley is not only a stellar student but also a pageant pro, so this girl knows her way around a makeup bag. The Georgia-native gives OK! the lowdown on her favorite beauty trends and the products she can’t leave home without.
OK!: What are some of your favorite cute and easy hair styles as you head back to school?
Savannah Chrisley: When I had long hair, I loved rocking a topknot or cute messy bun with a headband, teased pony, or beach waves. Now that I have short hair, I typically run a straightener through and bend the ends under. On occasion, I’ll wear a fedora or create messy beach waves (with either a wand or curling iron).
OK!: What’s one beauty product you can’t live without?
SC: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is my everything. It evens out skin tone, hydrates, has SPF, and looks like natural skin. Oh, and did I mention the dewy glow? Glow is pretty important.
OK!: What do you keep in your bag during the day for quick beauty touch-ups?
SC: MAC powder is a great product to have on hand. It gets rid of shine and has a bit of coverage in a pinch. NARS has vibrant blush colors (with the greatest names). Their shade called Orgasm is so perfect for my skin tone…it’s no wonder they call it a cult classic. Finally, lip tints are just fab. I can’t have enough. Stila gloss tints are so beautiful and last forever. A shade like Apricot is neutral enough to wear year-round.
OK!: Is there one beauty trend that you and your friends are obsessing over at the moment?
SC: While I am really into so many of the trends I have seen lately, my major pick has to be intense lashes. There were so many spider lashes on the runways this season and I think big lashes make the eyes look radiant and sparkle. A great mascara goes a long way and I am not afraid to use falsies to add a little more glam for the right event.
OK!: What’s going to be your go-to nail polish shade for fall?
SC: I love OPI colors and I will probably end up wearing their entire fall Nordic Collection. It’s filled with bold purples and blues and a few light nudes. But their “Thank Glogg it’s a Friday” red is a really my favorite fall color.
OK!: What’s one beauty trend you would never try?
SC: I’d have to say Stiletto nails. When they get so pointy at the ends, someone could get hurt, it’s just not a great look. It might be fun for a photo shoot, but I can’t imagine actually living with Edward Scissor Hand tips. With that said, I love a rounded almond nail look on a less extreme level.
