Lili Reinhart Likes To Look Like Herself鈥攁nd Considers Her Mom Her ‘Anxiety Hotline’ 

Once considered a taboo subject, therapy has made its way into the mainstream. Flip a magazine or ear-hustle the nearest convo and you鈥檒l find that everyone is doing it, thinking about doing it or talking about how it changed their lives for the better. Some of us are taught that talking about our feelings is positive, but therapy takes that to the extreme with a co-pay to match (unfortunately) and plenty of lessons (fortunately) along the way. As someone who has been in therapy for years, I believe the hype is long overdue. To that same point, I sometimes fear we鈥檝e redefined therapy as a quick fix instead of a process that isn鈥檛 necessarily linear or tied to a deadline. So when someone like actress Lili Reinhart speaks unabashedly about her love of therapy, it鈥檚 more surprising than it should be.

Recently crowned the ambassador for COVERGIRL鈥檚 Clean Fresh collection, Reinhart doesn鈥檛 hide behind a makeup beat and is willing to admit that she doesn鈥檛 have it all together. In other words, she鈥檚 keeping it real. 鈥淚 think this is one thing that I鈥檓 not nervous about,鈥 Reinhart tells StyleCaster about her COVERGIRL partnership. 鈥淚 wasn鈥檛 promoting a line that, you know, wanted me to plaster my face with a bunch of makeup and not be real or authentic to myself.鈥 That includes a fierce dedication to minimalism and learning what it means to put yourself first, minus the guilt trip.

Ahead, Reinhart delves into both the easy, breezy and not-so-easy-breezy parts of embracing self-love as a journey instead of a destination.

StyleCaster: What鈥檚 your favorite product from COVERGIRL鈥檚 Clean Fresh Collection?

Lili Reinhart: I really do love the Clean Fresh Skin Milk ($13.49). My big thing is having skin that you can actually see underneath makeup. I don鈥檛 like to cake makeup on and not see skin texture. I use foundation as a way of just evening out my skin tone more than anything else. This foundation is really lightweight, which I enjoy because I like to have my freckles come through. And it鈥檚 still very dewy and glowy.

SC: So is it safe to say your makeup style is minimal?

LR: Sometimes on the carpet, I鈥檒l do something a little bit more dramatic. But mainly, I鈥檓 very minimal. I make sure you can see my skin. I like to be fresh-faced and very clean. I don鈥檛 like to have too much of anything, to be honest. You鈥檒l never see me with strip lashes or heavy contour. I like to look like myself.

SC: What鈥檚 the everyday makeup look that gives you an 鈥淚 love me鈥 moment before you walk out the door?

LR: I really have fallen in love with the COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Mascara ($7.94). That鈥檚 something that I genuinely love. I use it pretty much every day. I鈥檓 kind of focused on lashes, brows and concealer. Those are the three main things. I use this soft blonde COVERGIRL brow pencil ($4.19), then I use my mascara and I鈥檒l just put concealer under my eyes, maybe around my nose and T-zone. I鈥檓 quite lazy when it comes to my everyday routine. I sort of just want to wake up and go so I keep it simple and quick. But that鈥檚 what makes me feel honestly the best; when I feel very fresh and natural.

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom in order to realize that you need to love yourself.

SC: Beyond your beauty routine, do you think you understand what self-love should look and feel like?聽

LR: I鈥檓 still trying to figure that out. I think I鈥檓 at a place in my life where I haven鈥檛 necessarily prioritized that. It took me kind of going home for the holidays and being around my family and realizing how much I missed them. That made me realize I may have been neglecting myself a little bit. And it鈥檚 easy to when you work so many hours a week and are constantly traveling. It鈥檚 easy to lose yourself a little bit.

I would think self-love is a matter of giving yourself a break and sort of allowing yourself to take time to breathe. Like when you really feel like you鈥檙e too stressed out or you can鈥檛 handle something, it鈥檚 OK to say that you鈥檙e not OK. There鈥檚 a lot of growth that can come from having those moments. I think that takes a lot of strength. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom in order to realize that you need to love yourself because it鈥檚 a very easy thing to forget.

SC: How are you prioritizing that growth when you can鈥檛 be near loved ones?聽

LR: I see a therapist and it鈥檚 not something that I鈥檝e ever been ashamed of. It鈥檚 only going to help me grow and learn about myself. I鈥檝e never had a therapy session that I鈥檝e regretted. I鈥檝e always come out on the other side feeling better and happier and more in touch with myself. So I think self-love is a matter of giving yourself just as much attention and time as you would anything else.

I鈥檝e never had a therapy session that I鈥檝e regretted.

SC: What鈥檚 been the most surprising thing you鈥檝e learned in therapy about yourself or just the process itself?

LR: I feel like I put the pieces together when I鈥檓 just talking about them out loud. I鈥檓 able to get all my feelings and all my words out in front of me. It鈥檚 easy to solve your problems or feel less stressed out when you are able to visualize.

I鈥檝e learned that I put a lot of pressure on myself and don鈥檛 often prioritize my own feelings or my own mental health. I guess I carry a lot more stress than I like to admit. And so therapy is always a nice reminder of me. Even if it鈥檚 for an hour a day, just to kind of focus my attention on myself, then that鈥檚 OK to do. It鈥檚 not selfish. It鈥檚 necessary.

SC: Besides your therapist, who else is supporting the 鈥渕e鈥 work you鈥檙e doing?聽

LR: I think because I work in Vancouver for nine months out of the year, when I come to L.A.even if it鈥檚 for workI always prioritize seeing my friends because my closest friends live here. So it鈥檚 sort of a little bit of a break from my work world when I connect with the people who are most important to me. My friends definitely keep me sane and grounded. Also, I鈥檓 constantly talking to my mom. She鈥檚 my anxiety hotline. I constantly turn to her whenever I鈥檓 feeling anxious or depressed or need someone. She鈥檚 definitely my rock.
