Exclusive: Carrie Underwood on Sushi Face, Smoky Eyes, and More

Carrie Underwood is the definition of the girl next door—if the girl next door also happened to be a six-time Grammy Award-winning, platinum album-selling, genre-bending blond bombshell. Since the very first time she graced America’s television screens on season 4 of American Idol, the songstress has won over, well, everyone with her soulful voice, impeccable style, and, more importantly, sweet and humble spirit. (Her dazzling smile doesn’t hurt, either.) We got a chance to chat with the singer and Almay brand ambassador about all things beauty—from her pre-red carpet rituals and hair advice, to the shine-busting beauty tip she taught her professional hockey player husband.
