Want a backstage pass to Santigold’s dressing room? Slip past security to discover what hair and makeup products the singer says she can’t do without.
“Right before I walk onstage, I put M.A.C Gold Glitter on my eyes,” says the genre-bending dance-rock singer. “I feel like a kid playing dress up. It’s the final touch.”
“All the flying I do is really dehydrating,” says the Philly-born artist. La Mer The Eye Concentrate “stops me from looking like a zombie.”
Smith’s Rosebud Salve multitasks as “a moisturizer for face and hands, and a pomade to smooth flyaways. It can even be your own Vicks, if you add eucalyptus oil to it,” she says.
“Keeping my skin calm with all the stress around me is almost impossible,” Santigold says, but Eminence Organics Skin Care Lemon Cleanser does the trick.
Hair can “get over-heated” from doing show after show under hot stage lights. Redken Real Control Crema Care leave-in treatment protects this superstar’s mane from breakage.
