Can you give us a hint as to what you'll be wearing for the performance?
I'll be wearing something a bit dressier than usual since it is the AMAs

Any details on what you'll be wearing on the AMAs red carpet?
I'm so excited for my red carpet outfit! It’s pretty and a bit more grown up.

What do you do to get red carpet ready? Do you usually have in mind the look you're going for way beforehand?
Lots of sleep and water! For my makeup look, I do have an idea ahead of time. I always try to think of something to match my outfit.

What are some of your go-to beauty products when hitting the stage? For a red carpet event? For every day?
For every day I just got my hands on the brand new COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom Mascara… I’m obsessed! It is the perfect mascara for day-time. It gives me really soft and full lashes that have tons of volume but don’t look overdone for daytime makeup. For red carpet, I’m all about a bold lip. The upcoming COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipsticks are amazing. They’re really moisturizing and come in gorgeous colors so you can always try another fun shade. They’re coming out soon!

For on-stage, perfect skin is a must. My go to foundation is truBLEND Liquid Foundation! It blends so easily into my skin so I don’t need to worry about makeup lines which would definitely be caught on the big screens and cameras!

If we looked in your purse right now, what would we find?
I have a handful of Colorlicious lipsticks—I have several different shades so I can pick a gorgeous color depending on my mood!

What's the one beauty tip you've received that you always carry with you and who did you get it from?
I always remember to smile. I think confidence is a true form of beauty.

Your new single "Can't Stop Dancin" dropped earlier this month. When can we expect another album?
Coming in the first half of 2015, almost done and can't wait to share it with everyone!
