Kelly Clarkson loves a low-maintenance beauty routine and often goes makeup-free. So it’s no surprise that The Voice judge feels similarly about skincare. Since working with Proactive in the early 2000s, the 38-year-old has endorsed nary a face wash or moisturizer, which means she either still uses the acne-fighting line or simply has better things to talk about. Either way, skincare isn’t a common discussion topic for her, but embracing natural beauty is.
Her beauty mantra is “Y’all, I just really don’t care.”
“And I mean that in a positive way,” she told People in 2018. “I just don’t care about things I feel like people put a lot of weight and gravity in. I do thank my upbringing for that. I just, I care about things that I feel like are important. So my beauty mantra is just to be a beautiful, kind, nice and thoughtful [person].” She added that she feels the most beautiful when she has “zero makeup on.”
The Kelly Clarkson Show host recently reaffirmed that notion while filming from her Montana cabin during the coronavirus pandemic. She didn’t have access to her makeup and hair crew, so she chose to work au naturel. “My favorite part of ranch life is the no hair and makeup,” she said on the talk show. “Yep, this is me in my glory.” She added that she loves “playing dress up” for work but she ultimately prefers the bare bones look.

Her glam squad preps her skin when it counts.
As a three-time Grammy winner, Clarkson is no stranger to special events or what it takes to get ready for them. And because she’s Kelly, the singer has often shared silly snapshots of the process, be it a sheet mask selfie or zit cream pose.
Clarkson’s current makeup artist, Gloria Elias-Foeillet, hasn’t divulged her skin prep secrets yet, but celebrity makeup artist Ashley Donovan once shared the products she used on Clarkson’s canvas before the 2018 Grammys: Tata Harper’s Repairative Anti-Aging Moisturizer and Restorative Eye Cream.
As you can tell, Clarkson seems to leave product choices to the professionals (can’t really blame her there), but we have a good feeling that if she gave her best skincare advice, it would be to love yourself.
