– EN Star Style – Taylor Swift admits she used to apply her signature cat eye look with a permanent marker pen as a teen.
The singer recalls her harmful beauty habits that proved to be damaging to her skin, confessing she would sleep with makeup on, but now insists she adopts healthier routines for a clear complexion.
“After my teen years and early twenties of sleeping in my makeup and occasionally using a Sharpie as eyeliner, I felt like I needed to start being nicer to my skin,” she tells Elle magazine.
The star now focuses on maintaining her stunning glow by taking better care of herself.
“I moisturise my face every night and put on body lotion after I shower, not just in the winter, but all year round, because, why can’t I be soft during all the seasons?” she adds.
The Shake it Off hitmaker’s haircare views have also evolved over the past decade or so.
“I learned that your hair can completely change texture,” she says. “From birth, I had the curliest hair and now it is straight. It’s the straight hair I wished for every day in junior high. But just as I was coming to terms with loving my curls, they’ve left me. Please pray for their safe return.”
As for fashion, the 29 year old embraces her past style fails and misses, claiming they were all part of learning which looks work well for her and which don’t.
“Fashion is all about playful experimentation,” she notes. “If you don’t look back at pictures of some of your old looks and cringe, you’re doing it wrong.”
