Shay Mitchell, 26, is a Canadian actress who schemes and smolders as Emily Fields on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars.

As we countdown to World's Most Beautiful Issue, on sale April 26, she posed for PEOPLE:

Her mom taught her ...
"To moisturize! My mom is from the Philippines, where they use coconut oil for their hair, skin, cooking, everything," says Mitchell, whose father is Irish-Scottish.

Her coolest beauty trick
"I put two spoons in the freezer so [after] those late nights on-set I can wake up, take the spoons out and pop them on my eyes. It gets rid of the bags and wakes me up!"

She's not really a tomboy
"Even though I play this athletic character on the show, outside of it I'm the girliest. My castmates come to me and ask, 'Who's a good facialist? Where's the new nail salon?'"
