Ashley Tisdale has come a long way since her Disney days.

In fact, the 30-year-old actress is practically a mini-mogul now—with the launch of Signorelli, her clothing collection exuding laid-back Cali-girl vibes, and soon-to-be beauty line, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale (review coming soon!).

Of course, if you're going to be a household name in the style arena, you need to have your beauty game on lock. So we put Ashley to the test and got the must-have essentials she's obsessing over now.

Keep reading for her favorite products and find out the beauty trend she thinks is totally overrated.

What's your everyday makeup look?
I love the beachy, bronzy look with a good cat-eye.

What is your signature lip color?
It all really depends. Coral, peachy lip glosses are perfect for the day, which is why I added those colors to my Illuminate collection. When I'm short on time and in a rush, I'll add a quick touch of mascara and a bold dark lip, which easily sophisticates a wardrobe.

Bronzer or blush?
I'm so torn between the two, but I'd have to say bronzer. You can get away with just bronzer, but you can't do just blush. I like to bronze it up!

What is your best non-product related beauty tip?
Get a lot of sleep. It's easier said than done, but it makes all the difference.

What are your daily hair products? Any styling tips?
I use Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner and spray it on after I get out of the shower. I also am obsessed with Kérastase Serum Oléo-Relax.

Any current product obsessions?
Beautyblender, the cream and cheek blush products in my Illuminate collection. It's a two-in-one, so it's so convenient. Also, I love the beach goddess or night owl depending on the time of day, plus it has everything—blush to contour to highlighter.

What product do you think is overrated/underrated?
I'd say that gel nail polish gel is overrated and regular nail polish is underrated. Everyone is all about gel, but it's actually unhealthy for you with all the UV rays hitting your skin. Plus, it's such a process trying to remove them.

What makeup do you wear to the gym, if any?
No makeup is the way to go.

What's your signature scent?
Chloé because it's customized with your personal odor, so it smells different on everyone and that makes it unique.
