The reigning queen of Country Music, as crowned in 2012 by Billboard magazine, Carrie Underwood, has sold more more than 14 million albums worldwide. With?masses of cascading blond hair and?gigantic sparkling teeth,?29-year old Carrie,?hit the big time after winning season 4 of American Idol … back when people still cared about the actual talent of the contestants and not just the judges’ drama.
Always savvy about her public image,?Carrie stated in 2008: “Most of the time I slap on some makeup in the morning so I don’t look bad if somebody snaps a picture. … Very rarely do I go out without makeup.” She meant what she said because there are very few photos of her looking less than stage-ready.
It’s a shame that she feels the need to cover up, because she’s a very naturally beautiful woman, and Carrie Underwood without makeup looks amazing.
The first photo of Carrie with a bare face was taken in September 2010 as?she was leaving a photo shoot in NYC’s?West Village. She looks like she might actually be growling, probably because she’s carrying so much crap. Though her contorted face looks odd, she looks really lovely with her hair pulled back and fresh skin.
The next photo shows Carrie dodging through crowds with her dog?Ace in her arms. With the sunglasses, you can’t get a clear view of her appearance without makeup, but it is unusual to see her looking so casual. Without her hair extensions and stage makeup, she looks very simple and pretty, very much like a regular person.
