What’s your favorite outfit to wear when you’re performing? During your down time?
Melanie: My favourite outfit to perform in usually involves “legs and fringe”. My energy and movement on stage is pretty aggressive, so I don’t want to be slowed down by anything to dainty. I like wearing shorts and super high heels. It makes me feel strong. I love fringe because it really creates movement on the stage…Like even the clothes are alive!!! During my down time, you can always catch me in some ripped up baggy jeans and a simple tee or tank, with sneakers. I LOVE SNEAKERS!!!
What are the top beauty products you couldn’t live without while on tour?
Melanie: My face regime… cleanser, toner, moisturizers. I’m using a combination of Clinique, YonKa and Murad products right now. After stage, i can’t wait to wash my makeup off. It really helps me to unwind and sleep better. I also love a quick spritz of Caudalie’s “beauty elixer” anytime of the day. It smells amazing and refreshes the skin.
As someone who is touring, you must be used to be on the go. Do you have any tips on how to look flawless, fast?
Melanie: I think its about knowing your go to look… the one that looks effortless and brings out your natural confidence. For me, shoes and accessories can make any outfit, so I always have those. Put on a great lip colour and a pair of amazing sunglasses, and in no time, you’re ready for the cameras.
