Portrait of a Woman
Meet Charlotte Perrelli, one of Sweden’s most iconic, loved and well-known artists. We talked about her thoughts on vanity, must-have products and her way of thinking about her own beauty.
What’s your key to feel beautiful?
I feel most beautiful when I’m wearing a great make-up and my hair is styled carefully and well done by beauty wizard Mattias Stafsing. I would lie if I told you I feel most beautiful when I just woke up and my hair stands in all different directions ha-ha…
Do you have any must-have product at your beauty shelf?
Absolutely! Since forever, I’ve been using Lernberger Stafsing Leave-In Treatment BB-Cream and Hairspray Strong Hold on a daily basis and I can’t even imagine going on-stage without some sprays of Dryclean in my hair! I’m also a frequent user of Root Camouflage since my hair grow very fast and I don’t always find the time to colour my regrowth. These hair treatment and styling products are always with me during all trips, shows and tours. Of course, Shampoo and Conditioner for moisture is a staple in my shower, always.
When it comes to the skin, I recently fell in love with the products Overnight Retinol+ Mask and S.O.S Barrier Repair Cream. When I use these two as a combo – it’s like getting a brand-new skin, without even making any effort. I love that!
What’s the worst beauty mistake you’ve ever done?
Actually, I don’t regret any outfit or styling really. It was the greatest trend during that time and it wouldn’t be fair to be embarrassed of it. Of course, I can look back at my looks from back in the days and say to myself, “Oh my god, I would never wear that kind of lip liner today” but still, I don’t regret anything. Beauty and styling are and should always be about playing around and having fun. Dress how you feel like and don’t take it too seriously. It’s fun!
How much time do you spend on make-up, hair and beauty?
As I mentioned, I prefer being styled by long-time friend and beauty wizard Mattias Stafsing for performances, photoshoots and galas. He’s the only one who can make me look really smashing and feel more beautiful than ever.
During my everyday life, I want my beauty routine to be quick and effective since I don’t have the time to spend hours in the bathroom. That’s why I love Lernberger Stafsing product series since they’re created to do amazing results in no-time. On a usual day, I’d say I don’t spend more than 10 minutes totally on hair and make-up. I just do the basics and use the right products which is enough to get the results I want. High quality products are really the key behind an easy and result-oriented beauty routine.
