Ivory Soap and Foot Massages: Lady Gaga Spills Her Beauty Secrets

Lady Gaga Beauty

It’s hard to think of someone as glam as Lady Gaga mulling over a makeup bag. But in the latest issue of PEOPLE, the superstar singer opens up about her surprisingly normal beauty routines (hint: the last thing she does before bed is brush her teeth!). 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. But that doesn’t mean the singer always follows directions. 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.” For more on Gaga’s beauty secrets, pick up the March 28 issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. Rennie Dyball and Samantha McIntyre

Interesting & nice to hear! Also, I liked The PHOTO of Eva Longoria’s Cake, it looked really good! Also, when Josh & Anna Duggar were on The TODAY Show on an Episode of 18 Kids & Counting, it was nice that Buddy Valastro, from Cake Boss, made them a Cake so they could find out The Gender of Their 1st Child, that was so nice of him & a great way for them to find out it was a Girl!

Madonna called. She said you are trying every second of the day to be someone else, specifically her. Now wake up.

Sorry I don’t think she is trying to be Madonna at all. All artists have influences and Madonna should be flattered that someone has been influenced by the artist she once was. Notice I said once was. Maybe Madonna is just jealous because she is no longer relevant. She lost her appeal to me in the 90’s. She became someone I no longer cared to listen to musically. As far as GaGa’s beauty tips. Maybe it’s time to return to your beautiful dark hair before you lose it all. Not to mention all those chemicals seep into the scalp. NOT GOOD!! Ivory soap is the way to go!! As far as make up, less is more. Make up should enhance one’s own beauty not make one look like a clown or over done. Just my 2 cents.
