Katy Perry Spends 90 Minutes Putting On Her Make Up

"PUNK: Chaos To Couture" Costume Institute Gala

Breaking news: Katy Perry does not roll out of bed looking like a painted porcelain doll with a heart of gold. She spoke to WWD while promoting her new perfume, Killer Queen, and revealed that her morning routine takes a staggering amount of time.

“I’m a product whore,” she said. “I have a [beauty] regimen that spans an hour and a half, and nothing goes out of order.”

Disclaimer: I love Katy Perry. She is genuinely talented and seems like an all around nice and lovely person. I know this because I saw her movie, Katy Perry: Part Of Me. After seeing a highly edited and contrived documentary about her life, I have to wonder–isn’t she busy being an international pop star? Where on earth is she finding an extra hour and a half every day?

really wish she had gone into some detail about what her regimen entails, because even on days when I can’t get my freaking eyeliner to look symmetrical and I finally just let it go after twenty minutes and leave the house looking wonky, that doesn’t come close to 90 minutes. I assume there are complicated milk baths, face muscle stretches, something involving a pressure-cooker, and drinking the youth-restoring blood of her fans and enemies.

What would you do if you had an extra hour and a half each day? I would most likely nap or finally update my iPhone.

      Most people who say they take that long don’t really know what they’re doing. I could do the same exact look plus some in about half an hour, tops, but I’m also a makeup artist so I kind of have an advantage here. But still, even before I had experience it never took me that long.

      If “beauty routine” includes hair than sure. If I go from shower to fully made-up, flat-ironed and lotioned, it takes about 1-1.5 hours.

      I reluctantly take 90 seconds to put on blush and lip balm

      If I’m doing a full pin up or burlesque look, hair and makeup could easily take 90 minutes. longer if I do my nails too. But that’s not an every day thing. Normal day is foundation, eyeliner, mascara if I remember but I wear glasses at work so who cares, and 10 minutes on hair. so 20 minutes tops? I’d much rather that extra hour sleep than 90 minutes doing makeup every day.

      even if you spent six hours putting on makeup to look just like katy perry, it would be worthwhile.
