Beth Ditto has revealed that her mother is her “beauty icon.”

The Gossip singer is renowned for her audacious dress sense and daring make-up. Beth has been fascinated with cosmetics since she was a child and was inspired by her mom to experiment with products.

“My mom is my beauty icon. I remember watching her get ready,” she told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle. “She always wore foundation, blusher and mascara, but kept it natural. My mom let me play with her products and I remember drawing on a Madonna mole with the tip of her mascara wand.”

The 31-year-old isn’t afraid to try new looks. Beth loves to be surrounded by her friends before an evening out so they can bounce ideas off each other.

“Make-up isn’t a tattoo – it all comes off at the end of the day, which is why I love it. It’s fun to play and experiment,” she added. “Getting ready should be as fun as a party.”
