What is your favorite beauty ritual? “I love, love, love—if I have an extra-long amount of time—to get lash extensions. They look like you’re wearing a strip every single day.”
Is there any beauty task you're lazy about? "Shaving. It’s not that I don’t shave—it’s that I don’t like to. People are telling me to laser; everyone on the tour has gone."
What's your latest beauty obsession? "I will never get a regular manicure again if I don't have to because the gels are just an amazing invention. A regular one lasts two or three days; with the gels you can bang your hands against anything. And those Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips are genius. All of my dancers are using them—amazing designs."
You're very fair-skinned. Do you wear a powerful sunscreen? "No, actually. My makeup has sunscreen in it, but really, when I'm touring I am indoors a lot during the day, like a vampire."
What products do you always travel with? "Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It's a hydrating spray, and on the plane it's really helpful. I've always sworn by the Lip Salvation scrub by Ole Henriksen. I definitely like to start with fresh lips before putting on lipstick. And I use Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil to take my makeup off after the show."
And what makeup is that? "I've been wearing Sephora Nano Lips liner in a fuchsia. It's the best color for my skin tone. Another thing I love right now is wearing lilac shadow with blue mascara—the shadow is Dior in the Misty Mauve set and the mascara is Yves Saint Laurent."
Is Zooey Deschanel your secret twin? Everyone seems to think so. "I do think we have some similar features. There should be The Shining 2 so that we can be the creepy twins."
You met at some point. Did you talk about the dopplegänger thing? "Yes, that was an easy ice breaker. I'm glad the similarities are with her rather than with someone else—she’s a good actress."
