Shay Mitchell is a badass. The Canadian actress, entrepreneur, and new mom has her hands full, and she does it all while serving killer beauty looks on and off the red carpet. Known for her long, dark hair, thick eyebrows, and full lips, Mitchell’s hair and makeup artists have a great canvas to work with. The Pretty Little Liars actress can pull off power ponies, messy buns, cat eyes, and bold lips like nobody’s business. But for the most part, Mitchell keeps her beauty looks natural; she often opts for neutral lip glosses, long lashes, and a glowing complexion that has us thinking, “What’s her skincare routine?”

In honor of Mitchell‘s 32nd birthday (today, April 10th), we rounded up the actress’s best beauty looks of all time. If one thing remains consistent throughout the years, it’s that Mitchell is the queen of the smize. See the proof below:

At the New York premiere of Netflix’s You, Mitchell wore her hair in a power pony—fitting for her confident character, Peach. We also love the subtle highlight on her cheekbones, bold brows, and nude lip.

Flipped ends made a comeback this past red carpet season, and Mitchell hopped on the trend at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party with a retro hairstyle. She served major Old Hollywood vibes for Hollywood’s biggest night.

At a 2018 pre-Emmy celebration, Mitchell showed up looking like the queen of Emerald City. Strokes of emerald on her lower eyelids, glossy lips, and an elegant updo combined for a look to remember.

Mitchell loves a good high bun, and for good reason—she rocks it like no one else. Stray pieces around her face add a relaxed touch, and subtle purple eyeshadow adds a pop of color.

At the 2018 Zimmermann New York Fashion Week show, Mitchell opted for a more bohemian vibe than we usually see from her. A wavy, messy bun and makeup in earth tones showed a more relaxed side of the actress, and we love it.

A throwback hairstyle is always a great idea, and this half-up choice is serving classy ’60s vibes. Add in the thick cat eyeliner, and we’re sold.

Mitchell almost always has a dewy complexion, but she was even more radiant when pregnant. We loved her super long, mermaid-esque hair at the premiere of Dollface. Major mom goals.

Rosy cheeks, soft lips, and subtle eye makeup had Mitchell looking angelic at the 2017 iHeartRadio MuchMusic Video Awards. Her middle-parted low pony only added to the sleek and elegant vibe.

Mitchell had a brief stint as a dirty blonde in 2016. She paired golden accessories, makeup, and bronze skin with her golden-highlighted hair. Yes, please.

13Pin-straight layers

Mitchell showed off pin-straight, lighter layers in 2017, and we’re loving this different look on the Pretty Little Liars actress. Bold blue eyeshadow is also quite the change for the neutral-loving star. We’re into it.

Happy birthday, Shay Mitchell!
