Pickler just lately launched her newest album, 100 Proof, and is on tour throughout the country selling it. She has teamed up with Tone Fruit Peel body wash for their Tone Flip it Up! sequence the place she’ll be blogging all through her tour, doing reside Fb chats and giving followers the possibility to take part in giveaways as well as a grand prize of an all-expenses paid trip to Nashville to elvis costume wig satisfy Pickler. Below, Pickler fills us in on every thing from her pores and skin care routine to her favourite products to use when she does her personal stage make-up (obviously our minds had been blown by this).
Magnificence High: Since you’re always performing, how do you retain your pores and skin in tip-prime shape
Kelly Pickler: Have you ever smelled this [Tone body wash] It’s wonderful. I really like the scent.
BH: Are you drawn to fruity scents
KP: Not always. But this … I suppose possibly it’s the citrus. There’s kiwi in it. It’s not heavy and it’s really hydrating. And I take advantage of it to shave, too. It’s a two-in-one! It’s actually great on your pores and skin.Very hydrating. Especially touring lots and flying and what not. A lot of water too. Water is the neatest thing you can do to your physique. So yeah, water. And I love my Clarisonic.
BH: You mentioned traveling, and you’re clearly at all times hurrying to the subsequent metropolis. Do you’ve gotten any must-haves on the road
KP: Properly, normally I have my canine with me. So I assume my foremost accessory is my two small canine. They arrive out on the street. They didn’t come at present, but they normally are with me always. I really like when I’m just touring or I’m not working, if I’m not in stage make-up, I’ve a ponytail, a baseball hat — my favourite Carolina hat — and my UNC hat. Jeans. Boots. Like, I’m so rather more of a tomboy. It’s humorous as a result of individuals typically … effectively, I feel due to my first tune, “Red High Heels,” people think that’s the one thing I wear. It’s like one music. I simply wore these shoes that one time — for that one break-up! I don’t put on them on a regular basis. However yeah, I’m very, very a lot a tomboy. I really like yard work. I really like mowing. I really like pulling weeds.
BH: It’s like a stress reliever.
KP: It really is. I assume I’m telling you that because my husband and that i are in like a landscaping process right now — planting vines and flowers and bushes and timber. So much. However anything that permits me to be exterior, I love. Kayaking, canoeing, hiking, riding bikes. Strolling the dog. We have a bigger dog — half pit, part lab. So, we take her for walks. I don’t run. Until I’m trying to get to a sale!
BH: You may have an awesome signature blonde hair colour. How do you maintain it
KP: I’m going to the salon in Nashville. It’s referred to as Fresh. Bryan does my color.
BH: Do you utilize any special merchandise
KP: Kevin Murphy has a extremely, actually nice hair mask. There are occasions where my hair simply seems to be like a crispy French fry, and that i sleep with it on. You place that on and you don’t have to do anything — you need to use any kind of conditioner. Simply put that on and sleep with it on and that basically helps. That mask is just actually thick, so it’s very hydrating in your hair. Not washing your hair on daily basis helps too … If you’re gonna be home for the weekend and you’re not going anywhere and you don’t need to look good … you may wash everything else, just don’t wash your hair. Give your hair a break, because every time you wash it, you strip out the elvis costume wig natural oils so it by no means makes it all the way down to the tip and the ends break off — particularly with color.
BH: After the previous few years of being on stage and having your make-up and hair achieved, have you learned any nice ideas
KP: I really do my own. I imply, as we speak I didn’t. Debbie did my make-up at this time. But we had Tv earlier. I all the time have her when I’ve stuff like this or award exhibits. You don’t want to deal with it — you don’t need to fret about it, you might have enough to worry about. So that basically takes a weight off your shoulders … But like on tour or something like that … I simply do my own.
BH: Have you ever always been concerned with makeup
KP: I’m extra of like a pores and skin particular person than I am so far as makeup. If we had been simply going to go get our nails executed proper now, I would not be sporting something. But I do love mascara.
BH: I should ask — are these your real lashes [Ed word: They had been miles long!]
KP: No! They’re just little people that you can get at the drug store actually cheap.
BH: I was going to say, if those are natural I could be extremely jealous.
KP: Those strips are so uncomfortable they usually all the time come unglued and they just look heavy, you understand. Or gaudy. But the individual ones … you can also make them full or simply put a couple of. Simply use tweezers.
BH: So what would you say is a traditional stage make-up look for you
KP: As far as my makeup goes I love MAC. They have really nice stage makeup. They’ve a mineral pressed powder now for like on a regular basis wear. However I use that for stage too. I don’t like utilizing liquid. I do typically, I’ll switch it up. I really like Bare Minerals. I think they have nice, just contemporary. But largely MAC. I really like some of Bobbi Brown eyeshadows and lip … But I exploit slightly little bit of every little thing. Kat Von D has great eyeshadows, too. However I mean you just have to find what works for you because everybody’s skin is completely different.
BH: Only one last query. Whose style do you actually admire
KP: You already know who I feel has a pure, gorgeous look Jennifer Aniston. She has great hair and she could make a pair of flip-flops and reduce-off shorts look like a million bucks. But even her dressing up — I imply she’s so classy-wanting. She’s so beautiful, I feel. I’d in all probability say her. And I really like her makeup — it’s so fresh. You’ll be able to glam it up for the carpet or for an event — I love her complete look. I think she’s gorgeous.
