It’s no secret that Carrie Underwood is an icon. The 31-year-old singer has had the most successful music career out of any American Idol winner, topping Forbes’ 2013 list of top earning American Idol alums (her $31 million fortune even beats former judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj). And now, Carrie’s busy away in the writing stage of her new, much-anticipated album, but she’s still topping the charts with her hit songs and winning countless awards.
Carrie’s single “Blown Away Medley” is still at No. 1 on Top 20 Country Countdown. And last week at the American County Music Awards, Carrie was honored with the Gene Weed Special Achievement Award, recognizing her “unprecedented, unique and outstanding individual achievement in country music.” She was even on hand at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn on April 10th to help initiate Nirvana and KISS. Through all the whirlwind of award shows and events, Carrie maintains a sophisticated, Hollywood glam look.

Makes sense then that Carrie is the new face of Almay, which her makeup artist Melissa Scheicher uses to create what she calls Carrie’s “old Hollywood glamour” look. “I love anything that shines and makes her eyes pop,” Schleicher tells Us Weekly. She says Carrie’s go-to look is a dark, dramatic smoky eye with a soft pink lip, and hair that’s loose, curled, and full of body. And the best thing about her look? All the products used on Carrie were under $15! Which means her smoldering glam look is easy and affordable to try at home. Plus, it’s refreshing to see a spokeswoman like Carrie use the products she endorses.

Carrie also maintains her glam look with long hours in the gym; Carrie’s trainer, Erin Oprea, tells E! News about working with Carrie. “Carrie is amazing. We have a lot of fun. Carrie always brings it! She is a real person…I don’t think of her as a celebrity. We have a true working relationship that has developed into a friendship. She is hard worker, motivated and disciplined.” And it shows! Carrie’s a true Hollywood beauty icon, on and off the stage.
