Bishop Briggs Just Released a New Album, But She’s Also Our Ultimate Beauty Hero
“I do have a particular mascara that I highly recommend—Marc Jacob’s Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26)—and I do spend a lot of time on them. I have a lot of tricks! I start at the base of my lashes and wiggle the wand side to side. … I use the tip to individually get each lash, it’s definitely a ritual of mine.”
Additionally, the magical powers of a really great contour, blush, and highlighter combo aren’t lost on Briggs and represent an essential part of the singer’s beauty routine. Her cheekbones, highlighted by her sleek buzz, are her favorite feature to play up.
“Not having hair, they’re kind of all I have!” she laughs. “So I really go in on contour sometimes, and I try to blend it, but, you know, considering how much contour I’m adding, there’s really not that much blending happening. I swear by a lot of highlighters. I love Becca’s Pressed Powder Highlighter in Champagne Pop ($38); that one is just wild. And then as far as other products, I’ve been loving Glossier’s Boy Brow in Clear ($16); that’s been kind of a game changer. And then I really love Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick ($32) for an everyday wear kind of thing. Oh, and honestly, this is another product that’s definitely worth mentioning: It Cosmetics CC+ Cream ($39). It works for everyone, and it’s so incredible—no matter what state your skin is in.”
As our interview wraps, there’s one more thing to address, and that’s the fact that having grown up in Tokyo and Hong Kong, Briggs was the queen of face masks before face masks, you know, represented the most in-demand currency within the beauty space.
“I mean, I have an obsession with face masks,” she confirms. “I feel like everyone does right now, but my obsession is really OG because I grew up having access to all that stuff in Hong Kong. So when the craze began a couple of years ago, I would say I just rejoined the club.”
