Pickler shot to stardom after competing in the fifth season of American Idol at age 19 in 2005 (she completed in sixth place), and shortly thereafter released her debut album Small City Girl, which included her first hit, “Red Excessive Heels.” Upon meeting her, the very first thing Pickler does is go in for a big hug, showing off her match frame in a tank top, denims and heels. She notes that she doesn’t usually put on heels — though it’s a typical misconception because of her hit tune — and would moderately hold out together with her husband doing yard work and getting down and soiled.
Pickler recently launched her newest album, a hundred Proof, and is on tour across the nation selling it. She has teamed up with Tone Fruit Peel body wash for his or her Tone Turn it Up! series where she’ll be running a blog all through her tour, doing dwell Fb chats and giving fans the prospect to take part in giveaways as well as a grand prize of an all-bills paid trip to Nashville to fulfill Pickler. Under, Pickler fills us in on every little thing from her pores and skin care routine to her favourite merchandise to make use of when she does her own stage make-up (clearly our minds were blown by this).
Magnificence Excessive: Since you’re continuously performing, how do you retain your skin in tip-high form
Kelly Pickler: Have you smelled this [Tone physique wash] It’s superb. I like the odor.
BH: Are you drawn to fruity scents
KP: Not at all times. But this … I guess possibly it’s the citrus. There’s kiwi in it. It’s not heavy and it’s really hydrating. And I use it to shave, too. It’s a two-in-one! It’s really nice on your skin.Very hydrating. Particularly traveling so much and flying and what not. A number of water too. Water is the neatest thing you are able to do to your body. So yeah, water. And I love my Clarisonic.
BH: You talked about traveling, and you’re clearly all the time hurrying to the following metropolis. Do you’ve gotten any should-haves on the road
KP: Properly, normally I have my dogs with me. So I assume my essential accessory is my two small canines. They come out on the highway. They didn’t come at this time, but they normally are with me always. I really like when I’m simply traveling or I’m not working, if I’m not in stage makeup, I have a ponytail, a baseball hat — my favorite Carolina hat — and my UNC hat. Denims. Boots. Like, I’m so rather more of a tomboy. It’s funny as a result of folks generally … well, I feel because of my first track, “Red Excessive Heels,” individuals suppose that’s the only thing I wear. It’s like one tune. I simply wore those sneakers that one time — for that one break-up! I don’t wear them everyday. But yeah, I’m very, very much a tomboy. I really like yard work. I like mowing. I really like pulling weeds.
BH: It’s like a stress reliever.
KP: It actually is. I assume I’m telling you that as a result of my husband and i are in like a landscaping process proper now — planting vines and flowers and bushes and timber. A lot. But anything that enables me to be exterior, I really like. Kayaking, canoeing, hiking, riding bikes. Strolling the dog. We’ve got an even bigger dog — part pit, part lab. So, we take her for walks. I don’t run. Unless I’m making an attempt to get to a sale!
BH: You may have a fantastic signature blonde hair shade. How do you maintain it
KP: I’m going to the salon in Nashville. It’s known as Fresh. Bryan does my shade.
BH: Do you employ any special products
KP: Kevin Murphy has a extremely, actually nice hair mask. There are instances the place my hair simply appears to be like like a crispy French fry, and i sleep with it on. You set that on and you don’t must do anything — you can use any type of conditioner. Simply put that on and sleep with it on and that really helps. That mask is just really thick, so it’s very hydrating for your hair. Not washing your hair day-after-day helps too … If you’re gonna be dwelling for the weekend and you’re not going wherever and also you don’t must look good … you possibly can wash all the things else, just don’t wash your hair. Give your hair a break, because each time you wash it, you strip out the pure oils so it by no means makes it right down to the tip and the ends break off — especially with color.
BH: After the past few years of being on stage and having your make-up and hair carried out, have you learned any nice suggestions
KP: I really do my very own. I imply, right this moment I didn’t. Debbie did my make-up as we speak. But we had Tv earlier. I all the time have her when I’ve stuff like this or award exhibits. You don’t need to deal with it — you don’t want to fret about it, you might have enough to worry about. So that actually takes a weight off your shoulders … But like on tour or something like that … I just do my very own.
BH: Have you ever all the time been eager about makeup
KP: I’m extra of like a pores and skin particular person than I’m as far as makeup. If we have been simply going to go get our nails finished proper now, I wouldn’t be carrying anything. However I do love mascara.
BH: I need to ask — are these your real lashes [Ed word: They had been miles long!]
KP: No! They’re just little individuals that you may get on the drug retailer really low cost.
BH: I used to be going to say, if these are natural I can be extraordinarily jealous.
KP: These strips are so uncomfortable they usually all the time come unglued and they what can do for long hair only look heavy, you understand. Or gaudy. But the person ones … you can also make them full or simply put just a few. Just use tweezers.
BH: So what would you say is a standard stage makeup look for you
KP: As far as my makeup goes I really like MAC. They have really great stage makeup. They have 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 generally, I’ll swap it up. I like Bare Minerals. I think they have great, simply recent. But mostly MAC. I really like some of Bobbi Brown eyeshadows and lip … But I use a little little bit of everything. Kat Von D has great eyeshadows, too. However I mean you simply have to seek out what works for you because everybody’s skin is different.
BH: Just one final query. Whose type do you really admire
KP: You realize who I think has a natural, gorgeous look Jennifer Aniston. She has great hair and she can make a pair of flip-flops and lower-off shorts seem like one million bucks. However even her dressing up — I mean she’s so classy-looking. She’s so beautiful, I think. I’d most likely say her. And I love her make-up — it’s so recent. You can glam it up for the carpet or for an what can do for long hair occasion — I like her whole look. I believe she’s gorgeous.
