On her personal makeup looks:
I take a minimalist approach to my wardrobe and I do the same with my makeup. I don’t look at it as a mask. I don’t overdo it. A bold shade of red or pink—something that pops—brings the whole look together. I keep my eyes pretty simple but I like to make my lashes a little darker and thicker.
On becoming a CoverGirl:
I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them. One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. Becoming a COVERGIRL is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.
