Zara Larsson On Her Signature Beauty Style And Best Makeup Tips
Her track 'Lush Life' is the track on everyone's lips rn, dominating the charts and arguably taking the crown for ultimate summer anthem - but Zara Larsson also has some pretty A-Grade advice when it comes to makeup. She's creative with her look and loves a bright, so it's no surprise that makeup brand Clinique picked the pop singer to star in their new interactive music clip. Each time you click a lipstick shade, the background - and Zara's makeup style - changes, which is pretty rad. We chatted to Zara about all things beauty in the lead up to the vid dropping.
What's your top tip for choosing a lip colour that suits you?
"I think you can see pretty clear and fast if it suits you or not. The colours used in this campaign really suited me, I suit block colours. But if you don't know, you can never go wrong with a red lip".
What beauty product can't you live without?
"Concealer - right now I've had bad breakouts, so it's definitely concealer. I also love the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup."
What's your bed time routine?
"It's very, very important to wash off makeup. Like, really wash it off - I used to be really bad and leave some on when I would go to bed, but it's so important to get it all off."
What's the one beauty product you spend your money on?
"I love eyebrows, so brow pencils and brow shadow are really important to me. I think whatever you love the most is where you should spend your money. If you love lipstick, spend there."
What's your personal makeup style?
"I love to go all out - once I start doing my makeup I kind of tend to do a LOT of it. So like foundation, contour, highlight, eyeliner, shadow, lashes, lipstick - everything! But I really, really love my contours."
And what do you never do with your makeup?
"I don't like to look cakey, so I don't bake. I feel like it could easily go cakey if I baked. I stick to my highlight and contour".
What's your best beauty tip?
"Blending. Blending, blending, blending. You want everything to look natural - obviously if you're wearing a bright lip, your lips aren't naturally BRIGHT RED, but the rest should remain natural and I get that through blending".
Who's your beauty style icon?
"Zendaya is always on point Like, every time she does her eye contour, it's always just on fleek. She's definitely my makeup inspiration."
What's your favourite look from the interactive music video?
"Vixen (for 'Dancehall'). It's very different from what I usually look like, so it was the most fun"
