What's Her Go-To Red Carpet Look?
For red carpet events Skai Jackson loves to accentuate her eyes and highlight her skin. "I love [for my skin] to have a nice dewy glow."
Looking to recreate the same glow? For eyes that pop, you can never go wrong with a cateye and volumizing mascara. Before applying your base, complete your cat eye and top your lashes with your favorite mascara. For the ultimate glow, use a primer with a subtle shimmer and highlight the high plains of your face, and set the look with you favorite setting spray.

Her Go-To Protective Styles?
When it comes to beauty, Skai is definitely a hair girl. "I love to play around with products, but I only use products with natural ingredients. I don't touch my hair too much—usually I'll just put it in a bun or a ponytail, but when I'm on the show I always wear a two-strand twist out." The actress usually washes her hair every 10-12 days and hydrates her strands with natural oils like coconut oil, castor oil and Jamaican Black castor oil.

Beauty Must-Have That She Keeps in Her Bag?
Comb through her beauty bag and you'll always find a tube of mascara. And, her brand of choice is actually drugstore! She swears by Maybelline 'The Colossal' Mascara
If she weren't acting, the Disney star would focus her attention on fashion design. "[Fashion Design] is something that I've been interested in since I was young. I love to mix bright, fun patterns, so my line would be marry New York chic and California cool. "

What's on Her Playlist?
Like all of us, Skai has been jamming out to Drake's recent "Views" album. Right now her favorite tracks are 'Views' and '9' (we're still obsessing sover "One Dance" and "Controlla," we'll make it through the rest of the album... eventually.) When she's not crooning to Views, she's dancing to Rihanna's 'Anti.'— You can never go wrong with Riri!
