"After shows my face feels dirty with makeup and sweat, especially in the smaller venues, so it feels good to get back to the bus and smooth it away. Sometimes you need something alcohol-based, especially on tour when you don't always get a chance to keep washing your face all the time."
Ellie Goulding's Tour Essentials
Like her personal style, Ellie Goulding's music—a hybrid of indie folk and electro pop—is a brilliant juxtaposition of seemingly incongruous genres.

On Ellie Goulding's excellent debut album, Lights (out now), tunes such as "Guns and Horses" "Starry Eyed" and the addictive title track showcase the 24-year-old British singer-songwriter's ability to blend elements of alternative pop, dance and electronica to an irresistible ethereal effect.
Similarly, the petite and dewy blonde's style is an eye-catching fusion of pop-star glam (sparkles, minidresses), rocker irreverence (fingerless gloves, a partially shaved head), and laid-back folk (plaid button-downs, jeans). We recently caught up with Ms. Goulding—who famously performed for Will & Kate at Buckingham Palace and will be singing for us common folks at Lucky’s FABB conference tomorrow night—to find out which items keep her looking eclectic and fresh while on the road.
