Halsey, real name Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, was recently announced the latest face of YSL Beauté, better known as Yves Saint Laurent, earlier this year.
The "Him & I" singer shared the news on the photo and video-sharing social networking service after performing at the star-studded amfAR Gala event in New York.
In a press release, YSL said, "While everyone knows about her chart-topping music, [Halsey's] talent as a makeup artist is a secret to many." YSL then closed it off, saying, "Not for long, a YSL Beauté taps into Halsey's unique vision of beauty and the way she offers her fans makeup tips and tricks. In this partnership, Halsey will showcase her makeup looks to her 6.5M Instagram followers on a monthly basis."
With this recent announcement, the millennial pop singer joins the very few celebrities who actually have the talent to do their own makeup when they're performing on the stage or strutting their stuff on the red carpet. Zendaya and Ashley Tisdale are among the few who have a reputation for being excellent makeup artists. Now, Halsey joins both artists as she gets a chance to flaunt her skills as an artist.
It's worth noting that Hasley's collaboration with YSL is quite different. She just won't be wearing the YSL products just for the sake of wearing them. Instead, she will get to use the products to showcase her prowess as a makeup artist. Considering that Hasley is not one to shy away from doing something bold and different, it's safe to say that we can expect a lot from her.
