Harper's Bazaar interviewed Lady Gaga to discuss the new collaboration between her beauty company Haus Labs by Lady Gaga and Sephora.
Lady Gaga spoke about her willigness to learn as a new makeup producer:
"I'd say the first thing I've absolutely learned as a beauty founder and creator was that I had a lot to learn. When I first began this company, I had a sense of my own artistry and love of artistry, but my knowledge of the beauty industry was much more limited. It took me a couple of years to really hone in on what I wanted this company to be. From the beginning, I always wanted to create a brand that was about empowering people to their makeup and helping people feel uplifted by makeup, but now I'm looking to take it a step further."
Then she discussed the new skin-care formula infused in all their new products:
"We have now put super-charged ingredients into our makeup, so it's infused with skin care. And we use futuristic clean formulas that go beyond industry standards, with a huge color assortment. These are artistry products without compromising performance and value. Both our Power Sculpt Velvet Bronzer and Bio-Radiant Gel-Powder Highlighter are infused with our proprietary complex of fermented arnica, which is 860 percent more potent than conventional arnica."
She concluded by sharing one secret behind her iconic red-carpet looks:
"I would definitely say that on red carpets I always wear our The Edge Precision Brow Pencil. It's my favorite brow pencil because you can get that perfect edge across the bottom, which gives you that sharp look with your brows while making those feather-like strokes," she says. And she reveals another trick that helps give her that bright-eyed look: "Something else I always do on the red carpet is wear white liner in my waterline—it's a trick to make the eyes look bigger, and one of the inspirations behind why we wanted this [version of Haus Labs] to be so clean. Our Optic Intensity Eco Gel Eyeliner Pencil has Argan oil and vitamin E as well, so it's safe for my waterline."
