Sophia Bush's Beauty Tips

The App Keeping Sophia Bush Beautiful

We get an exclusive peek inside Sophia Bush's beauty routine, discover her celebrity hair crushes, and find out the beauty app she can't live without, courtesy of Allure.

After a decade on the teen phenom One Tree Hill, Sophia Bush has finally graduated: This season, she'll play an officer on NBC's police drama Chicago P.D. We sat down with the star for a little beauty interrogation.

Allure: What's been your biggest red-carpet beauty disaster?
Sophia Bush: "Oh my god, all of 2004. Right out of college and having to do events, and having absolutely no clue how to deal with that pressure — I kind of imploded from it."


Allure: What about your daily beauty routine?
SB: "Chicago is so, so dry. I spend my morning having my hair blown out, so I'm trying to be better to it. Otherwise I think it'll all just fall out. So I'm doing a lot of conditioning masks. Also, all of us in the makeup trailer on C.P.D. have really gotten addicted to Perricone products. They're so good. Before, I was using a lot of Ahava, which is full of Dead Sea minerals, so now I'm sort of seesawing between the two. It keeps your skin nice and surprised."

Allure: Any secrets for maintaining your bangs?
SB: "Mine are almost grown out at this point, but when I was keeping them short and straight across the brow, I had to get them cut every ten days. But I travel so much that it got hard while I was on the road. I started, whenever I got to a city, just getting on Style Seat, which is the most incredible app for any girl who doesn't have 100 stylists at her fingertips. I can see who's well-rated and whose portfolio I like, and then book an appointment all from my phone, which made having bangs a lot easier."

Allure: Are there any beauty trends you're especially into right now?
SB: "I have pretty thick eyebrows, so I'm really grateful to Brooke Shields, the first time around, and now Cara Delevingne for making that such a thing. For those of us who were born that way, it's kind of nice. And I would love it if I could rock Michelle Williams's pixie haircut."

Allure: Which celebrities do you look to for beauty inspiration?
SB: "Two people who I think have the world's most perfect skin are Cate Blanchett and Kate Bosworth. Maybe there's something to being named Kate, I don't know, but those two just seem to be effortless, yet completely, ethereally gorgeous."
