Singer, songwriter and actress Ariana Grande has made waves on the pop scene with hits like “Problem” and “Break Free.” From starring in Nickoledeon’s television shows Victorious and its spin-off Sam & Cat to gracing the covers of teen and music magazines, Ariana needs to look picture perfect all the time. The young star, who turns 22 today, spills a few of her beauty secrets to Seventeen Magazine.
Vanilla Lace Body Mist
Vanilla Lace by Victoria’s Secret is an Oriental Vanilla fragrance for women. The line was launched during the 2000’s which features fragrances like musk and vanille. The body mist is infused with moisturizing Aloe Vera and calming Chamomile, which keeps the young star feeling fresh and cool throughout the day.
Chanel Lip Stain, $36
Ariana admitted to being a fan of Chanel lip products including the lip stain, which leaves long-lasting colour paired with high-shine gloss for full-coverage colour that lasts all day. The glossy top coat gives a brilliant shine and superb hydration, while the fluid texture of the base colour coat applies smoothly, comfortably, with perfect adherence to lips.
For added measure, Ariana also keeps a tube of Chanel Lip Gloss in her makeup kit, which keeps her look sweet and wholesome. This gleaming gloss takes a playful turn on lips, delivering sheer colour, high shine and comfort.
Aquolina Pink Sugar Perfume
Pink Sugar Perfume by Aquolina is a fragrance for the skin and body that evokes playful scents, suited for daytime wear. The floral and candy fragrance (which has notes of lily of the valley, candy floss, licorice, fruits, strawberry, woody notes, powdery musk, vanilla, caramel) evokes sensuality, gentleness and passion. It’s sweet, yet still sexy, very much like Ariana.
Not exactly make-up, but another essential in Ariana’s makeup bag are tins of Grether’s Pastilles, a brand of Swiss glycerin-based, pastille candies that contain natural ingredients which have a soothing effect on a sore throat and a strained voice. These candies relieve the tickle in one’s throat, help against hoarseness and provide a protective coat on exerted vocal cords, keeping Ariana ready to belt out tunes anytime.
