33-year-old ‘Perfect Illusion’ superstar covers the latest issue of ALLURE, hitting newsstands September 24.
Gaga has a lot to share with the magazine, including on how MAKEUP CHANGED HER LIFE! Gaga says: “I never felt beautiful, and I still have days that I don’t feel beautiful. All of the insecurities that I’ve dealt with my whole life from being bullied when I was younger, they come right back up to bite me. Then I put makeup on, and before I know it I feel this superhero within. It gives me those wings to fly.”
On how her glam-squad helps her become Lady Gaga: “Sarah [Tanno, Lady Gaga’s makeup artist] would pick me up off the floor, sit me in a chair, dry my tears, and say, ‘I’m going to put on your face now.’ If I cried while she was putting on my makeup, I would apologize, and she would say, ‘It’s okay. I’ve got you.’ Sarah would do my makeup, Freddie [Aspiras] would do my hair, and they would hold me and say, ‘Look at yourself. There’s Lady Gaga. You can do this. Now go do it.’ And I would go out there, and the second that spotlight hits me, bam, I’m in the zone. But I can’t do that without them. That is the power of glam for me. Not everybody has a Sarah, but I’m very lucky that I do. And I want this line to be for the person at home who needs that pick-me-up. If they use it, or don’t use it, they can at least look at it and go, ‘That’s what helps Lady Gaga shine on her bad days. And I want to shine today.’” For more of Lady Gaga’s interview visit Allure.com here and let us know: HAS MAKEUP CHANGED YOUR LIFE? DO YOU LIKE HAUS BEAUTY BY LADY GAGA?
