Beth Ditto, aka Mary Beth Patterson, lead singer of indie-rock band Gossip is nothing but an awesome human being. She's gone from being one of our greatest musical inspirations to becoming a beauty guru.

Last night she appeared on the runway for Marc Jacob's Spring/Summer 2016 show and we're not even surprised she got the spot. "I got an email, and then I answered it, and then I flew here for a fitting," Beth explained to ELLE US. It's that easy, guys.

She also talked about the makeup look that she wore on the runway. "I love it. I'm obsessed with it because this is my favourite kind of mascara. I'm not good at pulling off natural looks," she said. Beth also revealed her secret to getting rid of those annoying mascara clumps.

"I use the Almay oily one to take it off. It takes anything off," she said. "People are, 'like you can't get that off.' I'm like, 'watch me.' Also olive oil or coconut oil takes anything off. I learned that from my mum."
