When you think social media star, red-carpet fixture, or beauty-industry influencer, you probably don't think of Sophia Bush. Strobing, glitter lips, chrome nail art — those aren't her things. But while we've all been watching the Kardashians take over the hair and makeup world, Bush has been flying under the radar and rocking some perfect red lips, the shiniest waves we've ever seen, and some futuristic eyeliner we're trying out this weekend. It's what made watching her beauty evolution so fun.
In addition to her role on Chicago P.D.
and impressive philanthropic work with I Am That Girl
and Invisible Children
, she’s now paired with Birchbox
to bring the joy of badass beauty products
to everyone for the holidays — and we’re pumped about it. The beauty company and Bush are teaming up for insane giveaways that feature the dreamiest products — Day 2 was the entire Oribe collection (which happens to be one of her favorite lines to use on set). When we found out she was a beauty girl, albeit a laid-back one, we couldn’t wait to chat about it. And what better way than having the actress walk us through her favorite beauty looks from the past decade?
Click ahead to see what Bush had to say about her evolution — and prepare to call your salon and book a glossing treatment immediately, because damn,
that hair is good
