Lizzo is taking over the world. With a chart-topping hit, the love of fans everywhere, and a film hitting theaters next month, 2019 is her year in more ways than one. But with such a hectic schedule, her beauty routine is now more extensive than ever before, and she's not mad about it.
In an interview with The New York Times, the Urban Decay ambassador broke down her extensive but fun guide to looking her best even on her most hectic days, and the people who help her do it.
Lizzo starts her day with one important ingredient: water.
"I’m real bizarre, but I believe in water first thing. Water is really important for face and hair. I go to the bathroom and, believe it or not, hit myself with some Evian spray to the face," she said.
After the H20, she lays on the SPF and tons of Urban Decay.
"I just went to Hawaii and got burned because I didn’t use sunscreen. So I’ve been really adamant about having some kind of SPF in my tinted moisturizer. Right now I use Laura Mercier and Nars ones. I do the tinted moisturizer, and then I do concealer — Urban Decay Stay Naked," she says about some of her makeup faves.
"Then I do mascara. I use Urban Decay Perversion. I used to do lash extensions, but my eyes got really swollen. So instead of the falsies, I just build a lash. You just got to take some time with it. Build a lash, baby."
But with all that twerking, you have to have something strong to keep it in place.
"We find a really cool way to present that, but yeah, we pull from our culture, too. We pull from what we know, and we just make it work. And Alexx has techniques to make it stay. Or I just dip my face in a tub of Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and put a dryer to it. Ha! Shellac it on," she emphasizes.
She keeps the curls right and tight thanks to the help of her hairstylist Shelby Swain.
"I’ve been really excited about my natural hair journey. I’ve been trying to rock more wigs — Dare to Have Hair has been amazing — to let my real hair breathe instead of putting in all these extensions and stuff and straightening my hair. My hairstylist Shelby Swain puts Mane Choice Daily Hair Dressing in my hair every time she’s about to braid me down for my wigs. It smells really good — it’s got a lemon scent," she said about keeping the natural hair right.
And what does the baddest b***h smell like?
"I wear Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules. I heard Rihanna uses it. No, that’s just me being silly. The scent is insane. The idea is that it grabs your pheromones and your body’s oils. It smells really good on me, not to toot my own horn. Toot toot!" she emphasizes.
And there you have it, a few of Lizzo's must-haves for when she's killing it on the road.
