Katy Perry Reveals Her Beauty Secrets

September 20, 2011 By:

Believe it or not celebrities don’t just wake up looking like a million bucks. Or even half a mil. Quarter mil. You get the point. They have an entire team of hair and makeup artists (that probably cost half a mil), that help them glam up in no time.

Thanks to a photo her husband Russell Brand tweeted last year, we know Katy Perry isn’t as hot without makeup. And I’m talking Beyonce hot without makeup. Seriously, B, how are you that hot without makeup? I need to know!

Anyway, Katy admits to Instyle magazine that she needs so much help in the hair and makeup department she’s ordered a special chair so she can just sit back (or lay back) and relax while her team works their magic. How cool is that?

Katy, who has been experimenting with different hair colors lately, rocks a new pink do on the cover of InStyle with a headline that reads, “Katy Perry: Pretty in Pink.” Thankfully, she's gotten rid of that weird orange color she was sporting for a short time while she was in the transition phase. Pink suits her, but going back to black is definitely going to be a bitch.

She’s rocking out in a Emanuel Ungaro dress, Louis Vuitton belt, Deborah Pagani, Diamond in the Rough, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry. Here are some highlights from Katy’s interview with Instyle magazine:

On getting her way: “I’m not going to sit and be steamrolled; I’m going to stand up against things that are unjust. I am full of unicorns and Care Bears 99 percent of the time, but don’t open Pandora’s Box of that other 1 percent - because it’s there!”

On her special hair and makeup routine while on tour: “I ordered a special chair from the dentist so I can lie back and wake up looking like a million bucks - I call it my Sleeping Beauty makeup.”

On having children: “Not yet. I think if you’re married, it’s often in your future.” As for her approach to raising kids: “I think in the future - the very far future - when I have children, I’ll have a more open approach, setting boundaries and showing them what their decisions and choices will breed.”
