Ashley Tisdale‘s new cosmetics line, Illuminate by Ashley, is out TODAY!
The 30-year-old actress and producer sat down with our friends at The Lowdown with Diana Madison and opened up about the collection, plus kids and music. Check it:
On the inspiration behind the makeup line: “I’ve always been as a person who as much as I love getting my makeup done I also love knowing how to do it and doing it myself. This has been in development for 2 years, before then I was asked how I do makeup – so I was like why not create my own makeup line?”
On doing it all: “I love it. I live for being busy. I came from Disney and when you’re working for Disney its a Disney machine – back then I was shooting a TV series, starring in the High School Musical franchise, and also recording my first album so I was busy at all times. It was when I came out of that, that I was just like oh so I have a lot more time – I’m all about a long career, I’m not here and out.”
On having kids: “There’s no pressure – I’m just not in the mind space right. Me and my husband just want to enjoy each other’s company. I’m running like 5 companies – there’s no way. Before I had a niece I thought I was going to have like 5 kids – being around my niece I’m like okay nevermind on the children. I love kids, I think one day we will definitely have them. I’m not someone to have nannies have have them raise my kid so I’m just not ready for that.”
On the idea of new music: “I hear my fans on Twitter. I definitely acknowledge all of their tweets about my music and they’re so supportive and constantly want me to do new music. I’ve been in and out of the studio, so I have been playing around with a sound and trying to figure out where I would go. There isn’t immediate plans, there’s definitely little seeds. I want it to have its own time and with everything I’m doing it’s just not what I’m thinking of right now, but maybe eventually.”
