Taylor Swift: I always carry pearls

Taylor Swift's favourite way to glam up is to put on "pearl earrings and necklace" for sudden "dress up" occasions.

The singer discussed the top ten things she has learnt to carry with her for an instant feel-good boost.

"[I keep pearl earrings and necklace in my change purse] I'll throw them on if I need to

suddenly dress up at the end of the day and don't have time to change my clothes," Taylor revealed to Web MD magazine.

The stunning American country singer is never far from her make-up bag, which is filled with her essential items of black eyeliner, red lipstick and a tinted moisturiser.

"[I also love] Kate Somerville moisturiser," Taylor recommended as a favourite beauty buy. "But any kind of moisturiser that you put on before you go to bed will make your skin softer."

Taylor carries a sample sized bottle of her new perfume Wonderstruck Enchanted around with her, as well as a pair of her most loved Ray-Ban sunglasses.

The singer-and-songwriter loves to eat and drink and struggles to stick to a nutritious diet on tour.

"Smartwater and Starbucks [are my favourite drinks]," Taylor gushed. "[I'm addicted to Starbucks flavoured lattes] but I try to eat a lot in the beginning of the day and not so much at the end. Snacks come and go."

To keep her slim figure in check Taylor exercises hard. She works out not only to balance her eating, but because it makes her feel good on the inside too.

"I try to exercise a lot. I like to feel really tired afterward, sweaty and disgusting," Taylor confessed. "I don't care about losing weight as much as feeling good about myself. You can't indulge without exercising, so I exercise because I love eating and I don't want to have to live without anything. But I also exercise because on the occasional days when I'm feeling low, it always makes me feel better."
