Country music star Carrie Underwood has something to sing about. At a press conference in NYC earlier this week the Grammy award winner was named the new face of Olay skincare. This marks the first time the veteran skincare brand will have a celebrity ambassador in North America.
The first few things that come to mind when I think of Underwood is that she’s a little bit country... well duh. Also, she’s a newlywed, married to fellow Canadian Mike Fisher of the Ottawa Senators, go Sens go! And thirdly, and most importantly, she has a flawless complexion. Yes I admit it, she gives me skin envy.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to sit down for a one-on-one with the 27-year-old superstar and got her to dish about her love of all thingy beautifying. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that she’s a total beauty geek. Her most coveted product? "Eyeliner, and loads of it," she says. She confides that her makeup artist, Melissa Schleiche has to hide the liner, otherwise Underwood will make some slight adjustments of her own, pumping up the drama with the liner.
Keep your eyes peeled for my interview with Carrie Underwood in a up coming issue of Canadian Living.
