Lady Gaga Shares Her Beauty Secrets

March 23rd, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

From her outrageous outfits to over-the-top makeup and hair, normal isn’t exactly the right word to describe Lady Gaga. Now in the latest issue of People, the pop sensation spills some of her quirky and rather disturbing beauty secrets.

“Gaga, who calls her mother Cynthia Germanotta and Princess Diana her beauty influences, says her mom taught her to wash her face with Ivory soap. When asked how many nights per week she goes to bed wearing makeup, she replies, “Seven. That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.”

What is good for her skin? The sunblock she carries around in her beauty bag. “I don’t like to tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles,” she explains.

The natural brunette, known for her now white-blonde locks, says she misses her dark hair when she has to “get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out.” And that’s not the only damage fame has done: she admits that she’s dying for a foot massage, to relieve her achy feet after all those days spent walking in sky-high heels.

But Gaga – whose favorite fragrances growing up were Versace Baby Rose Jeans and Revlon’s Jean Naté – says that above all, the best beauty tip is to be yourself. “Just go with your gut,” she urges. “Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.””

Perhaps that’s why she’s skipping mascara and fake lashes these days. “I think it’s more modern not to wear [either]. I just wear eyeliner.”

While I definitely do NOT think anyone should sleep with makeup on, I am totally with Gaga on the importance of sunblock and her be-yourself attitude. I wear sunblock with SPF 30 all year round (click here for my favorite) and tanning beds don’t even exist in my dictionary. Plus makeup is meant to be fun so if you like that blue lipstick or crazy fake lashes, WEAR IT AND OWN IT! With makeup, you can always take it off at the end of the day!

So what do you guys think? What are some of YOUR beauty secrets?

Leah’s Halloween look

LEAH is a chemistry graduate student in Minnesota. She’s pretty new to makeup so it’s mostly about playing for her!

INSPIRATION: My inspirations were the feather fabric I made my bustle out of, my love of peacock colors, and a picture I saw of a woman in a fancy bustle dress and a peacock on a rock glaring at each other over who has the best “skirt“. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. and the only thing I would change would be to put padding in the bustles to make them stick out more!

  • BREAKDOWN: For makeup I used the Shiro Zelda collection. On the inner lid was Majora’s Mask, outer lid was Midna, crease was Veran, and the feather was done with Majora’s Mask, Boomerang, Kokiri Forest and Link.
