Well-known makeup artist Alexx Mayo says Lizzo decides which look she wants to go for depending on the emotions she feels each day.
The American singer and “Juice” hitmaker often sports striking looks that range from bright neon colours to sultry browns and golds, and her makeup artist Alexx Mayo has revealed that Lizzo’s looks change with her mood for each day.
“We are very big about playing on mood. Sometimes we’re feeling very energised or loud or colourful and bright. And sometimes, we have days where we’re feeling emotional. I feel like that really reflects in the makeup,” Alexx explained.
For every look that Alexx creates, he always makes sure to use his “secret weapon” to achieve the perfect pigment in his eyeshadow.
He added: “I get asked all the time, ‘How do you get eyeshadows to be so vibrant or to be so saturated?’ and I would not be able to do that without an eyeshadow primer. And specifically, the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is my secret weapon.”
After every show, Alexx and Lizzo always settle down to remove her makeup the same way, by enjoying a “mini facial”.
Speaking about their post-show ritual, he said: “On tour, after every show, a part of the beauty process is taking the makeup off and ensuring that the skin is hydrated and cleansed and ready for the next day. So, we have these little mini facials after every show to take everything off.”
Alexx and Lizzo always start the treatment with a double cleanse using the Fresh Seaberry Skin Nutrition Cleansing Oil, as it is “great” for removing makeup.
The makeup artist told POPSUGAR: “It’s great, because on dry skin, you literally just massage it in and you can go over the eyes and it breaks down everything. Then when you activate it with water, it turns into this milky consistency and it really takes everything off.”
