Taylor Swift has become known for walking out of the gym looking prim, proper and, well, perfect. There has been a lot of speculation that the singer takes hours to get dressed after her workout, and has an entire glam squad to help with her hair and makeup. But Swift says this simply isn't true. She has one little trick that helps make her look so glamorous after a trip to the gym — it's all about the red lips.
“A red lip is my one go-to style. Sometimes I don’t even put any other makeup on — just a red lip and maybe some mascara. Every day that I go to the gym it’s documented by a minimum of 20 photographers," she said in the December issue of Southern Living. "I’ve read reports that I’ve taken hours to get ready after I work out. It’s so funny that they chalked it up to me doing a whole glam thing — very flattering, but very very untrue.”
Swift also talks about being single and learning to be independent. She advises that all girls take some time to be alone in their lives.
"I recommend to all my friends that they be alone for a while," she said. "When you're in love, or dating someone, you filter your life decisions through their eyes. When you spend a few years being who you are, completely unbiased, you can figure out what you actually want."
With the holidays just around the corner, Swift says she is most looking forward to surprising her family and friends with great gifts.
"My number one excitement factor with Christmas is watching my family open up gifts. I love searching for the perfect gift—and the perfect wrapping paper—for each person in my life. Some people are born to be excited about opening gifts, some people are born to be excited about giving gifts. The good thing about humanity is that we seem to balance out."
