"We get addicted to seeing ourselves really dolled up. I had a few days off in Brazil back in February where I wasn’t in makeup and I remember being like, ‘Yo, why am I so ugly to myself right now?' It’s because I got addicted, used to seeing my face with contour. I never thought that would happen because I’m such an earthy b***h, I can go days without makeup,” she says speaking to People Magazine.
