Sky Ferreira: Make-up's a game changer

Sky Ferreira thinks cosmetics have a "transformative power".

The singer-and-model is known for switching up her hair and beauty looks regularly and is also the face of Redken.

One of the things she likes most about cosmetics is the way they can change how she feels.

"I think make-up and hair have such transformative powers - you really can become anything," she smiled to British newspaper The Telegraph.

"But real beauty comes from self-confidence. It's like clothing: you can be wearing the worst thing in the world, but if you feel confident about it people will think it looks good."

The 21-year-old is currently sporting a shorter dark brown hairstyle.

She can always remember being interested in make-up - even if she wasn't quite sure how to use it.

"When I was a child I stole my mother's make-up and put it all over my face - as in an entire tube of red lipstick all over my face," she laughed.

"I would look up to Madonna and Debbie Harry for their beauty and style, but don't most girls? Those early years started my fascination with beauty, and now I kind of get lost in it, putting on make-up and dyeing my hair."

Sky looks gorgeous on Redken's website, rocking Marilyn Monroe style blonde curls and a slick of dark pink lipstick.

Unfortunately her ever-changing style has taken its toll on her locks.

"I'm pretty low-maintenance but I do like soft hair, though I had forgotten what it was like to have soft hair because of all of the dyeing I've done," she admitted.

Sky is supporting Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz Tour, which kicked off on February 14 and runs until June 13.

The star is grateful that she's been able to combine music with fashion.

"Fashion is just a part of what I do. Musicians want to work with designers. Luckily, I got to do that first," she previously said. "It all happened at the same time, but the modelling just took off faster. A lot of the people I know who are in bands have to work in restaurants and bars when they’re not touring. I model instead."
