Katy Perry: On Beauty Insecurities and Dyeing Her Hair Black

06/17/2013 at 12:49 PM ET

You’d never know it to look at her on a red carpet, but even Katy Perry admits to having beauty hangups.

In a video to promote her July Vogue cover, Perry goes from bare-faced to totally made up while discussing everything from her hair to skin — including the features she loves to play up as well as those she’s less impressed by.

“My brows and my eyes are, I think, what frame my whole face,” she shares. “I have all right lips and all right cheekbones, but they’re no showoffs.”

She also confides that she’s ready to ditch the bold, bright looks she’s known for and move on to more “age-appropriate” makeup — and shares why she’s been dyeing her blonde hair black since she was 15.

For all those secrets and more, watch the video above, and keep an eye out for Perry’s Vogue issue, on stands soon, and visit

She’s right on when she says its time for more age appropriate make-up. Hopefully that translates to her style of dress as well. She is always so cartoony looking. She is pretty but she could be really ravishing with a makeover.
