Kacey Musgraves is making waves as one of country music’s newest stars, but what would she be doing if she wasn’t performing her songs for fans night after night? “If I wasn’t a singer, I think I’d be a makeup artist,” she told Self Magazine. She also revealed her best makeup tips to the publication.
While most people start their makeup routine with foundation, Kacey suggests starting elsewhere. “A makeup artist once taught me to do my eyes first,” she said. “That way the little shadow particles that fall on your face don’t dirty up your foundation.”
Some of Kacey’s tips are unconventional, but she swears by them. ”I get eczema on my arms, and my acupuncturist said to put vegetable shortening, like Crisco, on it,” she told the magazine. “I tried it for a week and the eczema went away. Another time, I had a breakout, so my memaw applied a paste of crushed uncoated aspirin and water. Fifteen minutes later it had shrunk. Swear.”
Kacey is currently a special guest on Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tour. Her new single, “Blowin’ Smoke,” is climbing the charts.
