Brit­ney Spears is the ul­ti­mate girl next door. We all grew up with her and her clas­sic nineties hits (don’t deny you were singing ‘Oops I did it again’ into your hair­brush). Her killer come­back in re­cent years has seen her look­ing bet­ter than ever with a sold­out res­i­dency in Ve­gas, two gor­geous boys and a brand­new fra­grance. We chat­ted to the Princess of Pop about her beauty look, her happy place and how she keeps those abs so damn tight! TELL US ABOUT YOUR SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE.

‘I mois­turise my skin day and night. I try to avoid wear­ing a lot of makeup on a daily ba­sis when pos­si­ble to keep my pores clear, and I am con­stantly drink­ing wa­ter. And who doesn’t love a great fa­cial!’

ARE YOU A DIEHARD MAKEUP FAN, OR A LESS- IS- MORE KIND OF GIRL?

‘On a day­to­day ba­sis, I’m def­i­nitely a “less­is­more” type of girl. I love to keep my makeup rou­tine sim­ple be­cause I am con­stantly on the go.’

IF YOU COULD ONLY HAVE FIVE MAKEUP PROD­UCTS IN YOUR MAKEUP KIT, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

‘I al­ways carry around my favourite mas­cara, lip gloss, mois­turiser, and one of my fra­grances – right now it’s VIP Pri­vate Show.’ ‘Drink lots of wa­ter! My mum al­ways made sure I stayed hy­drated grow­ing up in Louisiana dur­ing the hot sum­mers and I’m so thank­ful for that.’

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HAIR, ARE YOU HIGH OR LOW MAIN­TE­NANCE?

‘For per­for­mances, I usu­ally wear my hair down, which can be high main­te­nance, so on my days off I love throw­ing my hair up in a bun or a pony­tail.’

WHAT BEAUTY TREAT­MENTS CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITH­OUT?

‘I love mas­sages and ma­ni­pedis as well as fa­cials.’

WHEN ARE YOU AT YOUR HAP­PI­EST?

‘ I have a cou­ple of happy places. When I’m spend­ing time with my boys is the best, but my other home or happy place is ac­tu­ally when I am on stage.’

WHAT DO YOU DO TO RE­LAX WHEN LIFE GETS HEC­TIC?

‘I love do­ing yoga be­cause it puts me in a very zen place. Set­ting aside some “me” time re­ally helps me re­lax, es­pe­cially be­fore a big show or event.’

EX­ER­CISE OF CHOICE?

‘Be­sides yoga and danc­ing, I do a com­bi­na­tion of car­dio and strength train­ing. I like switch­ing up my car­dio rou­tine so I’m not do­ing the same work­out all the time. As you can imag­ine, I get bored so I al­ways look for that change­up.’

DO YOU HAVE A SIG­NA­TURE SCENT? OR DO YOU LIKE TO CHANGE YOUR FRA­GRANCES?

‘I like chang­ing up my dayto­day scents based on my mood. I’m ex­cited to be us­ing VIP Pri­vate Show. It’s sexy and fem­i­nine but also in­ti­mate.’

WHAT WAS THE IN­SPO BE­HIND YOUR NEW FRA­GRANCE?

‘ VIP Pri­vate Show cel­e­brates one of my big pas­sions: danc­ing. It is in­spired by that amaz­ingly per­sonal, in­ti­mate feel­ing of putting on a show, where it’s you and the au­di­ence. I want my fans to feel like they have that all­ac­cess pass to me as a per­son and a per­former. It’s also a bit more in­dul­gent [than my other scents], it has a hint of musk.’
