I know that sounds kind of weird, but it really is! I love makeup, and I like the time I get to spend doing it, so it’s nice to get that time for myself to play with new things.” And although the “American Idol” winner is famous for her signature smoky eye, Underwood tells the magazine she prefers to keep her beauty routine simpler at home.

With the help of coconut oil, which she credits as one of her beauty product must-haves. “It’s really hydrating on my skin, and I drink a ton of water to help with that as well,” says Underwood. “I feel like those help the base.
