Delta Goodrem shares her biggest beauty blunder

Plus, the products in her beauty bag

Delta Goodrem is as beautiful as she is talented and down to earth. Her achievements span from a huge Australian and New Zealand tour to promote her (fourth) and latest album Wings of the Wild, a successful foray into musical theatre with her lead role in Cats, and most recently, the launch of her fragrance, Delta by Delta Goodrem. We sat down with the Aussie beauty for an exclusive chat about the inspiration behind her new fragrance, her biggest beauty blunder and the products she swears by.

On her new fragrance…
I believe in long term decisions and when this came across my path, I looked into it and I kind of thought okay, how does this feel within my heart because when doing music and acting and all those wonderful crafts you have to really love it, and I love perfume! And I love that we’ve made something so authentic, and it has detail and it’s interesting; it’s the last thing I do before I walk out on stage, so for me, I take great pride in finding something, it’s like a discovery. The perfume is like a discovery.”

On her ultimate beauty muse…
“I grew up with a mother who never misses a beat on beauty routines. She has never, ever gone to bed without taking her makeup off, she would never walk out of the house with a chipped nail. She would get up half an hour early to blow-dry her hair. So, that’s the breeding I’ve come from and I love that and respect that. I can’t say I’m as fastidious – I try to be – but I think it’s really important to stick to the routine that works for you.”

On her go-to look for the red carpet…
“I like having my hair out but I also like playing. You have to be true to who you are that day but you also have to feel comfortable, you don’t want to do something too out there and then feel like ‘this is so not me’”.

On her biggest beauty blunder…
“Are you kidding me? There’s so many, I don’t even know where to start. I am 15 years in the making of learning myself on camera. But I had very skinny eyebrows. I remember a photographer telling me, ‘you know Delta, if you actually grow out your eyebrows, it would change the shape of your face.’ I listened! Because he showed me on the monitors and I went ‘Yes!’ and I just grew them out after that. It was my ‘Aha!’ moment, totally, like stop plucking them!”

On her Holy Grail beauty products…
“I’ve had my Eye and Lip Cleanser by Ella Bache my whole life, which takes off my makeup so easily. Sunscreen! A YSL mascara has been my must-have my whole life. I love the ModelCo Illuminator and Oribe hair is insane. But Charlotte Tilbury is my world: the sparkles, and they’ve got such beautiful colours.”
