We were lucky enough to ask our favourite country singer, Carrie Underwood, some questions on beauty, future plans and being the new face of Almay.
What was your reaction when Almay asked you to be the face of their brand?
I was really excited of course! Almay is full of products that I have been using since I’ve been wearing make-up so it’s fun to actually get in there and work with them.
What is your favourite Almay product?
I love Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector.
What was your first beauty memory or interaction with a beauty product?
Watching my sisters. They are ten and 13 years older than I am so they were getting into make-up when I was really young. It was so much fun to watch them and want to be like them, watching them do their hair and make-up and go to school. That was definitely my earliest memory.
Can you share one beauty secret with South African women?
Playing with make-up and staying hydrated and moisturised, wearing sunscreen and products with SPF like Almay Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector.
What can we expect from you next?
2014 is going to be a really creative year for me and I am just really excited to be making music.
What will your first campaign for Almay be?
It’s all about your natural beauty being enhanced. I really love that. I hope more than anything that’s what people will get out of it.
One product you don’t travel without?
What do you never leave the house without? Your purse. What’s in your purse? I definitely have lip balm and pressed powder because I get shiny. I can live off of the make-up that’s in my purse. It’s not complicated. But if I had to, I could.
One of my sexiest moments was when…
I wouldn’t call it sexiest, I would probably call it a moment of complete confidence – almost four years ago when I got married. I had so much fun getting ready; I had so much fun with my bridesmaids and my mom and walking down the aisle. I’ve never felt so confident in my life.
