Beauty with Britney Spears
Mother, performer, businesswoman… no one is more #BossGirl than Britney Spears. Cosmo chats exclusively to the pop princess…
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.’
