The one and only Lady Gaga takes the cover of Allure Magazine‘s October 2019 edition captured by fashion photographer Daniel Jackson. In charge of styling was Nicola Formichetti, with production from Honor Hellon Production. Beauty is work of hair stylist Frederic Aspiras, makeup artist Sarah Tanno, and manicurist Miho Okawara.
“I never felt beautiful, and I still have days that I don’t feel beautiful. All of the insecurities that I’ve dealt with my whole life from being bullied when I was younger, they come right back up to bite me. Then I put makeup on, and before I know it I feel this superhero within. It gives me those wings to fly.
When I became Lady Gaga when I was younger, it was because I discovered makeup. It means so much to me on a deep visceral level — the power of makeup to change how you feel when you’re at your lowest.” – Lady Gaga for Allure
