Confused Beth Ditto avoided make-up in school

London: Singer Beth Ditto, who loves experimenting with her looks, says she never wore make-up in high school because she was struggling with her sexuality.

"I grew up not wearing make-up at all. I was coming out as a lesbian and trying to make sense of what make-up was within feminism and questioning whether you could be particularly feminine and be a feminist - which was ridiculous. I had super, super short black hair and a lip ring. I was really into that look," a website has quoted Ditto as saying.

However, Beth was still so obsessed with make-up that her friends asked her to help them get ready for prom and she even considered a career in beauty before she started a band.

Ditto has created her own line of beauty products for Mac.
