We’ve always been fans of country songstress Carrie Underwood, but now we love her even more. One of the original American Idol winners (her debut album has gone platinum seven times), Underwood has been an amazing live performer since the beginning. But we just found out an incredible fun fact about the gorgeous blonde: she does all her on-stage hair and makeup looks herself.
Styelist recently interviewed Underwood and discovered that the country star is every bit as down-to-earth and charming as she seems:
"Yeah, that’s two people I don’t have [on tour]. When you’re on stage, it’s a little bit different than real life. You can kind of pile it on—and you need to for things to show up. It’s kind of whatever, you can play. You can do things you wouldn’t really do. You can put glitter on your eyes. Big hair. The bigger, the better. It’s fun. It’s a nice relaxing time, a calm before the storm, if you will."
We don’t know about you, but we think that makes her pretty incredible. If nothing else, it makes us believe that maybe we should have a little more confidence in our own ability to pull off unforgettable makeup and hair.
