Taylor Swift spends a lot of time getting glammed up for performances and award shows and has picked up a lot of beauty tips over the years. In this month’s Allure magazine, Taylor answered readers’ beauty questions and shared some of her own tips.
One reader has the same naturally curly hair as Taylor and wanted to know what Taylor’s secret is to having near perfect ringlets. “My hair is naturally curly, so some days I just let it be,” Taylor said. “But when I wake up and my hair looks like a mess, I curl my hair by wrapping the hair around the curling iron to create a spiral look. I don’t use any hair products because I have this fear of putting too much mousse in it or something and my hair ending up feeling crunchy.”
A couple fans asked Taylor about her skin care regime. She told the magazine she puts on cream at night before bed and then again in the mornings. She also doesn’t mind being pale.
“In high school, it seemed like everybody cared about being tan all year round, but I haven’t really thought about it since then,” she said. “I don’t go to a tanning bed, and I get bored when I lay out. I put sunscreen on when I’m in the sun and sometimes I get tan, but I don’t really think about it very much.”
The life of a superstar isn’t always glamorous, however. Taylor likes to veg out on the sofa like everyone else and sometimes, that means sleeping in her makeup as part of her nighttime routine. “I take my contacts out, wash my face, put on night cream, and put on my glasses so I can watch Friends,” she said. “Sometimes I forget to wash off my makeup. Okay—almost all the time.”
Taylor just announced she will release a CD/DVD combo of her Speak Now World Tour. Speak Now World Tour – Live will be in stores and available online on November 21. GAC caught up with Taylor backstage at her tour stop in Nashville. Tune in to Top 20 Country Countdown tomorrow at 8/7 CT to catch her interview with Nan Kelley!
