Katy Perry Uses Lipstick as Eyeshadow

Katy Perry isn’t particularly well-known for her low-key style or natural beauty looks, which is exactly why we love her. Who else could pull off everything from a blue wig to shimmery fuchsia eyeshadow (sometimes both at once)? In a recent interview with Elle magazine, Perry divulged a few beauty secrets from her real life (aka not the one she lives on stage) and we were surprised to learn the pop star loves a makeshift makeup hack as much as we do. “I feel like you can take any lipstick and make it a blush. I use it like finger paint and you can put it on your eyes, too,” she said. “When you're using less of a matte and more of a cream lipstick, it moves better and gives you a gloss.” We’d suggest using a creamy nude or bronze shade like Clinque’s Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Suede ($36) for natural definition.
