All that and a side of retro flair!

Lucy Hale is the latest celeb to do a sit-down with Yahoo! Style. And while some of the Pretty Little Liars actress’ sartorial confessions are applaudable—”Chanel is kind of the ultimate for me,” she told the e-mag—what’s really a sight to see is the accompanying photo shoot, which is quite the retro fantasia.

Hale, 25, worked two different hairstyles for the shoot: a very ’60s-esque blunt bob, parted down the middle and rounded slightly at the ends, and a tousled, rock-and-roll updo, straight out of the ’80s, complete with clip-in bangs.

Just as gorgeous (and hilarious): Her beauty secrets, which include spending hours at the beauty counter, only to find herself hoarding unused products at home! Hale confessed, “I definitely am the girl that goes to Sephora and spends way too much. I’m always buying things I’ll never even use. In life, I just sort of use concealer and mascara and a bold brow. I try to keep it simple.”

Not that she doesn’t dress it up sometimes—especially for PLL, which has taught plenty about going glam. “On PLL we have to enhance things, so we have to put those [fake] lashes on sometimes,” Hale, who modeled Chanel, Donna Karan New York, Rachel Zoe, and Nasty Gal at the shoot, told the e-zine. “You learn a lot about what colors work for your eye. I’ve learned to contour pretty well. I can apply fake lashes pretty well. And I can cover a zit like nobody’s business!”

While working on PLL has made her a makeup master, Hale told the online mag that what she really loves most about the series is the Liars’ devotion to their best friends. “What I love about all of the girls is that they’re extremely loyal,” the Mark ambassador said. “You look at all that’s happened, and the one thing that’s stayed constant is the girls’ friendship. But they also call each other on their shit. They see the bigger picture and want the best for each other, and I’ve been like that in my real life too.”
