You might have thought that being Lady Gaga would involve a serious quality of grooming and an enormous entourage of beautifiers, and you’d be right, but last week the diva shared her beauty secrets to US magazine People and some of them left us more wide-eyed than Gaga inside her egg. Or Gaga in any ensemble for that matter. They are certainly eyebrow-raising. Get a load of these sound-bites, but please take note - it’s absolutely not alright to leave your make-up on at night, ok?
On her skin:
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.
On her hair:
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.”
On eye makeup:
She’s skipping mascara and fake lashes these days. “I think it’s more modern not to wear either. I just wear eyeliner.”
On her beauty philosophy:
“Just go with your gut,” she urges. “Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.”
We're with you on this one, Gaga!
