Ellie Goulding's Secret to Get Glowing Skin Is 100% Free
In a time when extreme makeup is dominating Instagram feeds and YouTube tutorials, Ellie Goulding is reminding us of the basics: peach, pink, and shimmery, shell-colored metallics. For her premiere collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, the pop star has created one of the most wearable offerings we've seen yet (available Dec. 14 online and Dec. 17 in stores). The romantic take on beauty in 2015 feels light and refreshing.
"I wanted the collection to be literally what I wear," she told me at The Edition Hotel Miami Beach before she performed a set during Art Basel to celebrate the line. "Every single day I get asked what makeup I wear and what colors I use, so I wanted it to be a representation of me — what I do during the day and on stage."
According to Ellie, makeup is an integral part of her style, and it often juxtaposes her edgy clothing choices. "I'm a bit of a tomboy, but not with makeup," she revealed. "I'll be wearing ripped jeans, t-shirt, and Doc Martens — which I wear religiously — but I still want my makeup to be perfect." To add to her effortlessly cool vibe, Ellie often wears her midlength blond hair in textured beach waves. She credits Bumble and Bumble volumizing products and Kerastase conditioner for helping her to create the look.
