Katy Perry Shares Her Secret to Feeling Happy About Your Looks
I am 30-year-old working professional woman, and I am a KatyCat. I have no shame in declaring my undying fangirl feelings for Katy Perry. You can catch me streaming Prism on repeat ("By the Grace of God" is one of my favorite songs, ever), I've blissfully rocked out with a mostly under-12 crowd at her larger-than-life concerts, and you can bet I crush on her pinup-girl-meets-Harajuku-babe beauty look.
When it comes to beauty, Katy is ahead of the curve. She's a red-carpet darling for her rainbow hair hues (sometimes even multiple colours in one night!) and bold makeup colour choices. Endorsements from Proactiv and Covergirl have made her the face of many campaigns. And she's launched a successful line of faux lashes and festive fragrances.
Katy's latest scent, Mad Potion, stays true to her whimsical brand. The bottle is meant to look like a container you might find in Neverland with silver glitter cap to conjure the spirit of magical stardust. Go further into her fantastical world with one whiff of the perfume, which, to me, smells like brunch (in the best, sexiest way possible!). The warm fragrance is a concoction of global vanillas (from places like Tahiti, Madagascar, and Mexico) mixed with amber, creamy musk, and jasmine petals. Look for it on shelves later this month.
To help celebrate her newest entrepreneurial venture, we Skyped (yes, I Skyped!) with Katy Perry about all things beauty — specifically, which vibrant hair colour is the most fun to wear, why Summer is the best time go makeup free, and what rituals she does to stay sane on the road.
