Fergie Talks Motherhood, the Power of Lip Gloss, and the Importance of Giving Back
(Getty Images)Motherhood is hard enough, but throw in a successful music career, a growing fragrance and makeup empire, a wine label, and philanthropy, and things might get a tad tricky. Just ask new mom, Fergie.
"I'm still trying to find my footing," the singer said last night at a party for Wet N Wild, Walgreens, and amfAR.
We caught up with the 38-year-old singer to see just how life has changed since having a baby. Other than delaying going on tour to be with her three-month-old son, Axl, we learned not too much else has drastically changed in Fergie's world. She still makes time to spend the holidays with family, she still signed on to host Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, and she still rocks her signature stiletto nails. Although she admits she had to soften the point just a bit since becoming a new mom!
In fact, Fergie admitted her beauty routine altogether hasn't really changed since having a baby. This may come as a shocker since we're used to seeing Fergie Ferg decked out in flashy makeup on stage, but she assured us her at-home look is much less dramatic.
"When I'm home, it's very, very minimal," she said. "A lot of the times, it's a very natural look that I go for."
Her go-to tools as new mom on the go? Lip gloss and mascara, of course. "A little lip gloss goes a long way," she said.

During last night's event, the star, along with Walgreens and Wet N Wild presented amfAR (the Foundation for AIDS Research) with a check for $50,000, all of which was raised through the sales of her very own Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color in V.I.Pink.
So between a singing career, a business career, and a little one at home, Fergie still finds time for philanthropy work—and lipstick? Count us as impressed.
