Taylor Swift Dishes on Beauty and Style Secrets
Taylor Swift is idolized by millions worldwide for her girl-next-door charm, brilliant songwriting and honest music. Swift is constantly on the go, but when she has a rare day or two off from the road, she tends to prefer getting facials done over a relaxing massage. Why? "I know they're really cleaning my face," Swift tells Allure magazine. "[But] I'm less likely to think about errands. I do that during massages."
The superstar also recently sat down with Lucky magazine and shared some of her must-have items while out on the road. Here is what she had to say!
Sharpie markers: "A Sharpie is one of my on tour staples, because before every show, every night, I write the number 13 on my right hand (my strumming hand when I play guitar), since it is my lucky number. Also, sometimes when I’m bored I write lyrics on my arm!"
Lipstick: "I keep Cover Girl’s red lipstick with me at all times! Even if I’m too lazy to put on any makeup in the morning, the one thing that I do like to do is have some lip color."
Jewelry: "There is a ring that I wear every day on the middle finger of my left hand -- it was a ring that I was going to borrow to wear to the Grammys last year, but after I won Album of the Year the diamond company said, 'Go ahead and keep that ring!' And so, I did! And I wear it every single day, and it reminds me of how lucky I was to have that moment and that memory."
Boots: "I’ve worn a lot of boots on stage, and the ones that I find that I like the best for performing and running around and jumping up and down on stage are these boots by a company called Everybody. They’re black and they come up to my knee, and there is no heel on them. They are, in my mind, perfect for performing!"
Mascara: "I do my own makeup a lot, so I’m always trying new products. Right now, I’m really liking Nature Luxe Mousse Mascara. It has good volume and isn’t heavy."
Purse: "Lately I’ve been carrying this brown, saddle bag-looking purse with a shoulder strap and it looks really kind of vintage, and maybe it reminds me of when I was riding growing up. It’s made by Rugby by Ralph Lauren."
Dresses: "I’ve found some really awesome sundresses for summer and for touring at places like Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. They seem to really have it covered in the sundress department."
H2O: "Everybody around me knows that I am constantly drinking water! I always have a bottle of water next to me. I think I started doing that when I started touring. I just noticed that it makes me feel a lot more energized and a lot healthier just to be constantly drinking water."
Curling iron: "I take a spiral curling iron on the road with me all the time; it’s the best thing if you really need to define your curls. It’s a definite go-to for getting ready before a show."
