Hayden Panettiere‘s Nashville beauty look may be all about glitz and glamour, but the star’s actual Nashville look is much more low-key. Since moving to the Music City to film the series, the star has made it her home and embraced the laid-back vibe, as evidenced by this behind-the-scenes look at her day off, below.

Panettiere dons a beanie, side braid and booties for a day of shopping and grabbing a bite off-set. And of course, the Neutrogena spokeswoman gives an up-close look at her beauty routine. But more than anything in her makeup kit, she tells PEOPLE, she relies on tried-and-true methods to keep her skin looking fabulous.

“Steam is amazing to open your pores and clear your skin. And drink tons of water when you can,” she recommends. “Also, something I’ve definitely been reprimanded in the past for — and [now] I’m a true believer in — is wearing sunscreen. You have to protect your face and skin.”

Though she’s most often seen wearing a peach gloss and mascara when off-duty, she loves to glam it up for special occasions. “I love doing nude eyes with an amazing pop of color on your lips … I do love me some red lipstick,” she says. We wonder which look she’s considering for her wedding day!
