Actress Meaghan Martin has teamed up with Acuvue for the second year in a row as a host and a mentor for their 1-Day contest that encourages teens around the world to search for their dreams. We caught up with Meaghan who gave us the scoop on the contest and her best beauty tips!
J-14: Tell us about your involvement with the Acuvue 1-Day contest.
Meaghan: I wear Acuvue contact lenses, so that was an easy first involvement, and then when they were explaining the contest to me, it seemed really cool to me, about helping kids get closer to their dreams. I was involved with the contest last year as a host and a mentor so they asked me to come back again this year to do both roles again. I was very excited.
J-14: Do you relate to the kids who enter the contest?
Meaghan: Absolutely because I think everyone has their dreams and what they want to achieve in life, and I've been lucky enough to have some success at what I want. I've had so many people helping me get to where I am, so it was great to be able to help these kids.
J-14: What's your best makeup advice for girls who wear glasses?
Meaghan: My best makeup advice would be to keep it simple around the eyes because you already have an accessory. You already have something highlighting your eyes, so you don't need a lot of eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara.
J-14: What is one of your secret beauty tips?
Meaghan: Neosporin actually. Neosporin is the greatest thing to ever happen to my life. Any blemishes, put it on, because it's an antibiotic cream so it kills the bacteria and you get less scarring. Overall it's a miracle ointment.
J-14: What's one of your favorite fashion trends?
Meaghan: I love maxi dresses. I've become obsessed with them. They're so easy and comfortable, and you don't have to think too hard when you're wearing one.
