Did you know Katy Perry isn't naturally raven-tressed? (Fun fact: she's been dying it black since she was 15!) Or that the milky-complected singer struggles with skin issues? Or that she frenetically combs her eyelashes, like, a ba-jillion times to achieve that trademark fan-feathered look of hers? (Okay, so you probably could've guessed that...)
In a new behind-the-scenes video for Vogue, the July 2013 cover girl unveils the secrets to her beauty routine, offering up a batch of eye-opening confessions while the cameras follow her transformation from natural-lashed to full-on KP glam.
