Samantha Droke Must Have the Chillest Beauty Routine in Hollywood
You might not instantly recognize her, but Samantha Droke was definitely a part of your childhood.
The 27-year-old actress has been making cameos in teen-oriented shows since 2005. She’s been featured in “Gilmore Girls,” “The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody,” “CSI,” and even the animated film “Horton Hears a Who.”
We got to ask Samantha about diet, style, beauty, and her massive Instagram following. Here’s what went down.
You have incredible skin. Is this diet? Beauty products? Good genes? A mix of all three? Please tell us your secrets!
Haha, I guess it could be a mixture of things. I eat pretty clean and I drink A LOT of water. Very important! I’m also very allergic to fragrance so my go to cleanser and moisturizer is cetaphil. You have to keep your skin hydrated.
What’s your everyday makeup regimen?
I honestly try not to wear makeup as much as possible, but when I do my go to is Make Up For Ever.
Do you get sick of wearing makeup on set? How much does your TV makeup differ from everyday makeup?
Do the characters you’re playing ever seep into your off-duty style and beauty looks? Like do you find yourself wearing your makeup the way a character on a show or movie you’re working on would?
I have definitely found myself picking up character styles or beauty looks. And I actually incorporate my own style for a lot of my characters as well.
You’re so relatable on Instagram. It seems like you just live a normal life despite having such a massive fan base. How do you keep things so real while working in Hollywood?
“Hollywood” is a beast of it’s own. I think I’ve honestly been blessed with amazing parents and supportive friends and family who keep me grounded. It’s really easy to lose yourself in this business or this town as a matter of fact, i’ve seen it happen way to many times. But I do live a normal life, I am a human just like every one else, I just happen to make movies. I’m glad you said my Instagram was relatable. Instagram is very interesting to me as it gives off this false identity of who we really are. It’s easy to slap a filter on it, touch it up, take 45 selfies until bam! You’ve got the perfect “image”. I try very hard to only post things that inspires others and to ultimately stay true to myself. I want to be a positive role model for the next generation. I want them know that they should be proud of who they are and not try to be some celebrity that is taking a supplement to make her butt look bigger. It’s just not real.
