By Ashley Fodor for ELLE
It isn't easy to stay gorgeous—and cool, edgy, and, well, sweat-free—on the road, onstage, and everywhere in-between. Our favorite musicians, starting with 22-year-old newcomer Ke$ha, tell us how it's done.

The certified-gold singer (her album Animal surpassed 500,000 sales) uses Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Liner in Majorelle Blue "topped off with gloss" for her signature blue lips.

The self-described "garbage chic" electropop sensation says, "I wear glitter every day because it's hot, shiny, and dangerous." She collects every shade of M.A.C Reflects Glitter.

"I use a lot of oils to keep my skin glowing," Ke$ha says. She favors the lightweight Josie Maran Argan Oil for a dose of vitamin E–rich hydration.

"For a fresh look" in a flash, Williams applies Benefit Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain. The rosy insta-tint is ideal: "I’m usually running late," she admits.

"Jane Iredale is the queen of mineral makeup!" Williams says. She stocks up on Iredale's tinted moisturizer "for everyday wear" and the brand's pressed powder for the stage.
Skin Remedy11 of 18
For "one-stop, amazing exfoliation," Éminence Organic Skin Care Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant strikes a chord with the punk-pop songstress, who uses the scrub at least twice a week.

For buildable coverage, Rye Rye wears Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation infused with milk-thistle extract. "It’s smooth and blends easily."
