MY STYLE SECRETS

SARA EVANS

THE ‘SLOW ME DOWN’ SINGER SHARES SOME OF HER FAVORITE THINGS

My style:

Hippie glam. I’m into flared jeans, flowy tops and long wavy hair. I’m typically a “less is more” girl. I like being laid-back but still glamorous—high heels are a must!

Favorite jeans:

Hudson jeans make my butt look great. They are hands down my favorite, especially with the pockets. They make your butt look bigger in a good way.

Signature accessory:

My wedding ring and big earrings. I have dark hair, so big earrings pop. I love hoops, especially by designer Hyla DeWitt. Her designs are so much more than just a hoop!

Inside my makeup bag:

Brown eyeliner and brow pencil, lip glosses (Nars glosses are the best colors) and M.A.C powder blush in Pinch Me.

Beauty indulgence:

Getting a pedicure. I love getting them with friends so we can gossip for an hour while we’re stuck in the chair. But when the foot massage starts, everyone knows it’s time to stop talking and take a nap!

Home must-have:

I love Stack candles—Red Currant and English Pear and Freesia. They smell great.

Must-have beauty product:

Face lotions. I use Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base before I put on my makeup, because it smells fabulous and makes my skin feel great. And I can’t live without putting something on my face at night, like Neocutis Bio-Cream or Kinerase Ultimate Night Moisturizer. I’m not that good about washing my face, but I’m great about lathering on products to moisturize!

Nighttime beauty routine:

This isn’t really a beauty routine, but it makes me super happy, therefore making me more beautiful: a glass of red wine and great conversation with the man I love. I like Leese-Fitch Cabernet because there’s no corkscrew needed!

GET THE LOOK

Carrie’s Curls

What’s the secret to Carrie Underwood‘s perfect waves? A clipless curling iron from Hollywood hairstylist José Eber. “The three attachments—small, medium and large barrels—curl the hair in literally five seconds,” Underwood’s hair and makeup stylist Melissa Schleicher says. “And they make the most perfect messy waves.”

To get Carrie’s look (with the Eber iron or a lower-priced model), thoroughly dry hair and wrap it section by section around the wand. Run your hands through the curls to create smooth waves throughout. Mist with finishing spray for shine.

SPLURGE!
