Electronic It Girl Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, is known for her quirky sensibility and dance beats in her one-woman show Grimes, but offstage, she's soft spoken and aloof. The Canadian artist was one of the hottest tickets at SXSW — and she didn’t disappoint. Before her Spotify show, we met up with the rising star to see if her beauty regime was as complex as her stage setup.
What's your must-have beauty product when you're on the road?
"Water. I stopped using anything else on my face and it made my skin better, so now I just use water."
How do you keep your hair looking great in less-than-favorable conditions?
“I bleach the hell out of my hair before a tour so it won’t get greasy," says the naturally brunette singer/songwriter. (Editors's note: Yeah, we're going to go ahead and say we don't recommend trying this one).
Do you have any quick-fix beauty tricks you rely on to get gorgeous in a flash?
"Brushing my teeth — if I am feeling gross, I like to brush my teeth, and if I can’t do that, then I always have gum and mints on me."
