[Katy Perry] I've been dying my hair black since I was 15.
00:12
The whole reason why I died my hair black actually
00:15
was because when I was 15, I chopped it all off,
00:18
I had it bleach blonde like Madonna
00:21
in Who's That Girl, and it just didn't look right.
00:25
And so I bought a box color,
00:27
went black and never gone back.
00:30
We still like to do dramatic makeup,
00:32
but I think we are coming in to
00:34
the more age appropriate field of experimenting.
00:38
You know, my skin use to be a lot worse than it is,
00:41
so we would do a lot more coverage
00:43
because I was insecure about my skin
00:46
and, you know, when you are insecure about your skin
00:48
you just do a lot more.
00:50
You know, most of the time I am doing stuff
00:52
with big lights and lots of HD
00:56
and so there's a lot of things to think about
01:00
when painting the face.
01:02
But I love a good paint.
01:04
My brows and my eyes, I think,
01:07
are what frame my whole face.
01:09
I have alright lips and alright cheekbones
01:12
but they're no like showoffs.
01:15
If I can get my brows and my eyes right,
01:17
that really sets the whole face.
