Katy Perry Dishes on her Style, Icons and Beauty Must-Haves

Katy Perry has not only conquered the world of music, but fashion and beauty too — her retro pin-up girl is as enviable as her hit song collection. So when British Vogue sat down with the songstress to hear about her beauty routine, we had to listen. Her top tip: “You wear the look; don’t let the look wear you. It’s all about having self-confidence, which helps you put off anything.” And that means accepting everything, Katy explains. “I think everything I have [tried], for better or worse, has been a creative expression of what I was feeling at that moment in life.” And just as she is inspiring many girls with her own style, she has a few beauty icons herself. “Clueless was a fabulous inspiration to me in the Nineties! So were Shirley Manson, a young Gwen Stefani, Madonna and Courtney Love.” So how do you look and smell like Katy? “My must-haves are Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier as it covers any spot without looking cakey. Johnson & Johnson’s Green Tea lotion smells fresh and zen, and eye drops always help me look awake and fresh, even when I’m jetlagged and sleepy. I swear by L’Oreal Professional Power Care Color shampoo and Conditioner as I’ve had a colour every month since I was 15, and it helps my hair feel fresh and new, like it’s just been cut. I’ve religiously used Kate Somerville products on my face for the past 6 months, and [I love] Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf because it’s sweet and sexy, and not too intense.” To read the full article, check out Vogue.com.

And her music is good.

Katy Perry has NOT conquered the world of music.

Inf fact I own and know not one person who has her music on an I Pod. Even a copied mp3.

Says a lot about a person who dresses like a clown, promotes promiscuity and makes music like an ostrich being stripped of it’s feathers.
