    8 Beauty Secrets I Learned From Carrie Underwood

    Carrie Underwood Beauty Routine - Carrie Underwood Makeup and Hair

    Queen of country music Carrie Underwood has won seven Grammys and sold millions of records, but the Oklahoma native maintains the same approachable charm that fans first fell in love with 11 years ago on American Idol. She punctuates every sentence with a laugh, or an "Oh, lordy," and insists that, although she never leaves the house without makeup, her approach to beauty is super low key. Like another undercover A-list makeup pro, Underwood handles her own stage beauty look, and she loves drugstore products.

    What you wear to work out matters:

    My style while working out has certainly gotten much better since launching Calia [by Carrie Underwood, her fitness apparel line] a year ago. It's exciting to always be able to refresh my wardrobe and it does matter. If you go to the gym in super baggy, super old sweatpants versus something that you actually feel good in, it just motivates your time there.

    Switch up your fitness routine:

    My workouts are based around my life and what's going on, whether or not I have a whole lot of time versus a little time because I'm with my son. I love to run, I like to get outside, I like lifting, I like doing bodyweight stuff. I mean, it depends—today was shoulder day, so we rocked the shoulder. [I like] kickboxing. I'm up for anything!

    Steer clear of 'American Idol'-era big hair:

    I feel like there were a lot of interesting hair things that happened to me when I was on Idol. That was my first time having anybody fix my hair. Even growing up, when we'd go to prom, I did my own and I've always done my own. There were some [looks] that I don't think I would do now–I had big hair. I had a lot of big hair. And I like big hair, but I wouldn't go back there again.

    Makeup is therapeutic:

    Unless we have other filming to do earlier in the day, I always do my own stage makeup. I enjoy it. I'm honestly not the kind of person that is great sitting there and letting someone else do hair and makeup. I feel like it takes longer when somebody else does it, and it's calming to me to be there with all my tools. It's quiet and it's nice and I don't need 20 hands on me before I go on stage–it just makes me nervous.

    Don't fight the mom haircut:

    For fixing my hair, I like GHD. I have a lot of their stuff, like flatirons and curling irons. Now that my hair is shorter, it's easier to fix, which was the whole point. Cutting my hair was a "mom" move. I wash my hair every day and I know that's not great for it, but I work out and I sweat a lot so I need to, and I'm on stage and I sweat even more. I could spend half an hour to blow it dry and have it be super long, or I could spend that time playing with my son, and I'd much rather do the latter.

    Simplify your routine:

    Things have just definitely gotten simpler [since having a baby]. I blow out my hair with a round brush and I'm good. It's not complicated at all and I'm out the door still feeling good, but that's the the simplest level [of upkeep] I do. Oh lordy, being a mom, half the time I'm like, 'Did I put moisturizer on? Did I do that today?' To be honest, whatever I can grab at a Walgreens is enough for me. I love drugstore makeup. I honestly don't think theres anything in my bag that's expensive.

    Hydration is key:

    Drink water! Drinking water, I think, is amazing. It has ridiculous benefits for every single part of your body. That's the first thing I notice if my skin looks dull: I realize I haven't been drinking enough.

    Make makeup fun:

    Growing up, my sisters, because they were teens when I was little, they had the coolest stuff. I liked when they had colorful things, not even things I would wear now, but they had colored mascara. That's when I learned that makeup could be fun. It doesn't have to be serious all the time.
