What do Kristen Bell, Sophia Bush, and Elizabeth Olsen have in common (besides being ridiculously talented, gorgeous actresses)? Their commitment to being eco-friendly. In honor of Earth Day, we caught up with each of them and asked them to get honest with us about their beauty habits. Things got real. Check it out.
Sophia Bush gets honest about…
…washing her makeup brushes.
“I definitely don’t do it often enough,” she says. “I’m trying to be better at that.”
…her best beauty hack.
“I’ve been using coconut oil as a hair mask for a long time, and it’s amazing,” she says. “There’s not an ounce of worry that happens when I rinse it out and it goes down the drain—which will eventually become someone’s drinking water. Also avocado oil is such a good makeup remover. You get it at Whole Foods…I’ve started keeping organic cotton balls and avocado oil with me and it’s just so good for you skin. It’s a good little win-win life-hack.”
“Yes, I have done it,” she says, “and I always regret it.”
…her beauty obsessions.
“I’m obsessive about my eyebrows,” she says. “I literally tweeze them every day. The second a little hair starts to grow back, it’s out. I do not let anyone else touch my eyebrows. Ever. I use Tweezerman tweezers religiously. And I love to do other people’s eyebrows. In college it became my duty in housing—people would come into my room and I would sit in their lap with tweezers and just go to town. I love it.”
Sophia’s Earth Day Cause: Bush and EcoTools are sharing green living tips on social media as part of the Live Beautifully, Give Beautifully campaign. All EcoTools products are made using renewable, recycled, and cruelty-free materials. As part of the campaign, for each makeup brush sold in the new EcoTools Complexion Collection, $1 will be donated to Global Green USA, up to $100,000. Global Green USA is a national nonprofit organization and the American affiliate of Green Cross International, created to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future.

As passionate about the environment as she is about her adopted hometown of the Windy City, Chicago P.D. star Sophia Bush raises her voice to build a better world.
Pasadena native Sophia Bush first wove herself into America’s pop culture lexicon in the early aughts as Brooke Davis on cult TV drama One Tree Hill, going on to play the ever-popular cheerleader-turned-fashion designer for nearly a decade. Now, Bush is garnering acclaim as Detective Erin Lindsay on NBC breakout hit Chicago P.D., which was recently renewed for a third season. The analytical, no-nonsense character is not unlike Bush, a vocal advocate of causes ranging from the environment to education. In a spirited conversation with friend and Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay, Bush opened up about the changing face of TV storytelling, her favorite Chicago foodie haunts, and how she’s working every day to manifest a brighter future.
Mariska Hargitay: Honey, how are you?
Sophia Bush: I just got home and I feel like I’ve won the lottery.
MH: “Home” home, like LA home?
MH: Good for you!
SB: It’s three degrees in Chicago, and it’s 80 degrees [at] home—
MH: Oh God, insanity. So, sweet Sophia, let’s start at the beginning: Tell me when you first knew that you wanted to become an actor.
SB: It was honestly an accident. My junior high and high school had a series of arts requirements, and I put off my theater requirement until the last semester. I knew it would interfere with all my extracurricular activities. The second semester of my eighth-grade year, they said, “You have to take a theater class,” and I protested because I was on the volleyball team, and they said, “It doesn’t matter. You could have done this last semester, but you waited and now you have to do it.” We did a production of Our Town—
SB: Something just clicked, and I realized that my passion for English and my love of literature could be put into action. It rocked my world and I just thought, I get this.
MH: I have a similar story. I was an athlete. I met somebody and he was like, “You should go on auditions,” and I was like, “Nope, I’ve got a volleyball game; I’ve got a cross-country game.” It wasn’t until I did a play that I went, Hey, wait a minute. I like this. Doing sports as a young girl really teaches us how to strive for something. In so many ways, too, it makes you a better actor.
SB: Absolutely, because you have some understanding of the need to persevere. I get this question all the time about our schedules—people say, “What happens when you’re sick?”
MH: And you say, “Nobody cares.” [Laughs]
SB: If you’re sick, you come to work with a bucket and you deal with it.
MH: Speaking of work, tell me what you think it is about Chicago P.D. that the audiences connect to.
SB: First of all, we’re so lucky to be part of this larger wheelhouse that you’ve influenced and that Dick [Wolf] has been growing for so many years. Television has grown as an industry. When I was a little kid, there were only a handful of channels, and now there’s a thousand to choose from. That has widened avenues that we have for storytelling, because we’re not looking at shows the way we used to. I grew up watching reruns of Dragnet on Nick at Nite. There was a crime and then they solved it, and that was that. Now we’ve been given permission on the show to allow our heroes to be flawed. Are they bending the rules to service the law? Are they breaking the law? Do we root for them? Are we afraid of them? Nobody’s always playing perfect.
MH: What’s your favorite thing about playing Detective Lindsay?
SB: She’s not one of those bleeding hearts that sees the world and wants to fix it. She wants to fix the world because she was taken advantage of as a child, because she was recruited to work in a gang environment, because she was a drug addict, because she’s been at the lowest point and seen what one person who cares about you can do for you, and now she wants to give that to other people.
MH: And what initially drew you to it?
SB: I’d been on location doing [One Tree Hill] for nine years, and then I worked a season on a show in LA and was so excited to be home. I didn’t quite know what I wanted to do next, but I always wanted to work for Dick, and I always wanted to work with you. I get this call, and my agent said, “Dick Wolf is doing this show, and they really want to see you for the lead female, and it shoots in Chicago,” and I’m like, “No way. Chicago’s so cold, it’s so far away, I don’t know anybody there…. I’m not going.”
MH: [Laughs] But Dick Wolf has a pretty good record.
SB: I know. And they were like, “But Sophia, it’s literally two of the three criteria for a job you’ve ever wanted. You could just read it.” And I said, “All right.” I was protesting, but not much, because in the back of my head I was so excited.
MH: Of course.
SB: And I read it, and I just got her. I thought she was interesting, and different, and I just thought it was so cool.
