'I want my lips to always look like I'm ready to suck a d***!' Lizzo opens up about her beauty routine and why her hit songs embrace sexuality
- Melissa Jefferson, aka breakout star Lizzo, said her approach to beauty is 'fluid' like her sexuality
- The musician, 31, revealed the secret to her signature two-tone glossy lips (which involves eye shadow)
- Texas-raised star said that every beauty look is based on her fantasy and who she wants to become in the moment; fellatio-inspired lipstick and all
- As part of Urban Decay campaign, Pretty Different, Lizzo said she is learning to completely love herself and has started wearing her hair natural
Lizzo's unapologetic lyrics and dazzling skills as a flautist have made her a breakout star, and a key part of that persona is creating a fantasy for viewers.
The 31-year-old takes the same approach with her beauty looks, asking her makeup artists to transform her depending on her mood.
The general vibe? Evidently sensual and sexy, as the Texas star said she wants her lips to 'always look like [she's] ready to suck a d***.'

The Truth Hurts hit-maker said that her approach to her sexuality and beauty are not worlds apart.
'It's about not being afraid of who you are and also being aware that who you are can change. In the same way, I love to change up my makeup every single day,' she told Refinery29.
'When we go into glam, my makeup artist says, Who are you today? Then he'll create a fantasy.'
The Hustlers star is known for her penchant for glittering oils, luminous eye shadow and heavy false lashes.
As for her two-toned lips? 'The tongue is like a sex organ, and the lips are a sexual feature,' she told the outlet.

She also revealed the key to achieving the painterly effect is to apply a matte lip color and then 'secure' it with an eye shadow that matches the shade.
The busy multi-hyphenate has appeared in her first campaign video for beauty brand Urban Decay.
In the clip, she appears on screen being beautified before pushing the crew away, wiping off the products and creating her own look.
As part of the campaign, her image has been projected into stores all around the country.
'I'm like, wow, somebody is walking into the store to get some makeup and hopefully a girl is seeing a face that looks like hers and it's inspiring and aspiring for her. Representation is the most important thing I can do as an artist,' the award-winning performer said.

The beauty contract was a big moment for Lizzo, real name Melissa Jefferson, who regularly makes music about rituals like hair care and getting ready.
'My songs are a celebration of the beauty in self. I sing actual things that happen to me - things we'll say when we're partying, when we're drunk, when we're crying, things I say in the mirror. I'm just trying to live a better life and a more beautiful life,' she said.
'I've been slowly learning how to completely love myself,' she added. 'I love my jiggly arms, but I also have insecurities about my teeth and hair. In order to truly love myself, I have to really love every single thing.'
Lizzo has also been getting used to wearing her hair natural.
'Hair is the final frontier for me. If I didn't love that, I would be a liar. I wouldn't truly, actually love myself. Even the things that people would think I would be insecure about, I find beauty, strength, and courage in.'

Cosmetics giant Urban Decay made the announcement that Lizzo was a star of their new Pretty Different campaign in July.
She was joined by 'trailblazers' Ezra Miller, Joey King, Karol G, and CL whom the brand said all 'championed uniqueness.'
The cosmetics company, which launched in 1996, has prided itself on its attitude toward breaking standards typically associated with beauty.
Last week, Lizzo teased fans everywhere when she took to Instagram with Justin Timberlake.
In a 10 second clip, Lizzo, and Justin, 38, can be seen in a recording studio as Lizzo's voice can be heard rapping, 'Get back get back.'
Lizzo will also appear at next week's star-studded MTV Video Music Awards.
