The rapper says, "Makeup is the worst thing you can do to your skin."
A$AP Rocky isn't shy about dishing out his thoughts on fashion and beauty and this time the rapper sat down with The Coveteur to share his own beauty routine and to tell the ladies how he feels about makeup.
"Honestly, I haven't been told my skin is flawless," Rocky says. "What I use is something called Witch Hazel to cleanse and exfoliate every day. You’ve got to exfoliate, you know?"
"For my hair, I don't have to wash it as often because it's just, like, easy. I can just tie it down and just wake up and just grease it and make sure it's still moist and that's it. For Black people, dirt actually makes our hair grow. I know you probably don't believe it, but it's true. I wash my hair once a week."
As for the ladies, Rocky says less is more when it comes to makeup and that he prefers the minimal look — unless you're getting dolled up. In that case, he could make an exception for red lipstick.
"But you girls don't understand how much you mess up your skin. You can't help it, but makeup is the worst thing you can do to your skin. I love girls natural, but I don't mind makeup. There's nothing wrong with it, there's really nothing wrong with it. See, guys like us we just like — well me, I only speak for myself, but guys like me, I'm used to normal. I'm used to real. Like yeah, your sh*t is going to stink, you're real, you know? You p-ss, you bleed, you laugh, you cry — you're human. So makeup is just like an artificial expression if you ask me. When it's time to get all dazzled up or you're going out, then fine. I like red lips, it's fine. I'm going to be real, though, it's bad for making out because it gets on the guys."
What do you think of his beauty tip? Could you easily forgo makeup for your guy? Sound off!
