1. Don't Be Afraid to Experiment "I love to play and try things out on my days off," the ten-time ACM Award-winner told InStyle.com. "Keep in mind my trial-and error phase when I was younger was mostly full of errors. I prefer more on my eyes. I get used to the stage look when less in NOT more! More is more! I love a little shimmer on my eyes."

2. Play Up Your Best Asset "I consider my best asset to be my legs," Underwood said. "Even if I'm not working out as much, my legs hold up pretty well. So, I tend to cover up the rest of my body and show the legs. A good shimmer lotion makes them stand out and look more defined and toned. I have an arsenal of shimmery stuff that I use-you name it, I've used it! I hate to recommend anything because everything works differently on different people."

3. Have Go-To Wardrobe Colors "Most of my closet consists of white, black, and gray items. They are easy to travel with because everything matches. But, I love to wear pink. I think pink works against my skin, plus I get to feel girly!"
