Debby Ryan spilled her beauty tips to SELF. + mugshot from The Glades. Filming beauty routine? Before we even start with makeup, my makeup artist applies moisturizer, primer, and Chapstick. Then we’ll do my hair because it takes for-ev-er! How do you get your hair so bouncy? I skip washing it for two days before filming, it gives my hair some texture and helps it hold a curl. On-set, my stylist sprays each section with hairspray, then wraps it around the barrel of a curling iron instead of clamping it in.
What are some of your must have beauty products for summer? I’ve never been too into makeup and like to keep things pretty natural so I’m a big fan of lip balm. I’m in love with one I found in Australia called Pawpaw Papaya Ointment. Also: Youngblood Lunar Dust, it’s a aluminizing powder that makes my skin look like a golden diamond! Since I spend a lot of time outside and in the pool, I use L’Oreal’s Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Mist, which makes my skin silky, and I rub conditioner into the ends of my hair so it doesn’t get wrecked by the chlorine and sun.
What do you do for fun? I don’t have much spare time but when I do, I’m with my brother at home making music and covering songs. We sing all the time. It’s kind of cheesy, but fun! Anywhere we go, we’ll start banging out a rhythm, so we started videotaping them and putting them on You Tube. I’ve also recently partnered with Free The Children to help rebuild communities in India.
