If there’s one thing we love about Katy Perry, it’s her ability to switch up her look All. The. Time. It’s almost kind of maddening how no matter what she does, she always looks mega-fierce—and her October 2011 InStyle cover is no different. She’s rocking her perfectly curled cotton candy pink hair in ALL its glory (And that’s no wig, people. She’s been slowly transitioning from black to blonde to pink hair over the course of a few weeks. Give her a slow clap for keepin’ it real.), paired with a high-neck lace crystal encrusted Emanuel Ungaro dress, super wide Louis Vuitton belt, and bold silver cuff. Her beauty game is on LOCK (I mean, obvi, look at that hair), but we love how she decided to go the fall route with dark burgundy nails, shimmery brown eye shadow, and fuchsia lipstick. Meeeoowww. But who DOES her makeup, and how does she keep it looking flawless from the red carpet to onstage to everyday life? Well, Ms. Perry spills her beauty secret!
Since Katy Perry is constantly getting her makeup done while on tour, she’s figured out a bit of a beauty trick to make it nicceeee and easy: “I ordered a special chair from the dentist so I can lie back and wake up looking like a million bucks—I call it my Sleeping Beauty makeup.” Um, HOW AMAZING IS THAT? If only we ALL could take a little siesta and wake up looking like Katy Perry—instead we awaken with nothing but runny mascara and mismatched eyeliner. *sobs* If this is ALSO applies to her workout routine we’re officially giving up.
