Carrie Underwood's Wedding Day Beauty Tricks

Carrie Underwood’s summer wedding in Georgia called for some creative moves to keep the bride looking cool, says Underwood’s make-up artist Melissa Schleicher. “It was really, really hot and it was raining around 4 o’clock, just before the wedding, so I had to think of the humidity,” she says. “The hair was a concern so I did kind of an updo. I just it curled it all over and just pieced it up and pinned it with bobby pins all over, real simple.” The wedding day do was created on the spot, she says. “We didn’t practice before the wedding or anything – we’ve done so many award shows and so many hairstyles, so she just lets me do what I do.” One element of her look that did require a bit of homework, however, was Carrie’s lush set of false eyelashes. The “very full lash that can be dramatic or natural” was created specially for her by Schleicher and Stephen Moleski of Smoke and Mirrors Beauty, whose lashes are “easy to put on and undetectable,” she says. Want to try out Carrie’s look yourself? The limited edition “Heart” lash, based on Underwood’s custom design will soon available for sale on Molesky’s web site.

I wondered where the “big hair” was that she was talking about having cause she is Southern. But nonetheless she looked beautiful.

Natalie on

I thought Carrie looked like a beautiful bride on her wedding day– the only thing is her face was very shiny; I prefer more of a matte look. I think that was strictly due to the hot weather though.

Elda on

She is just Gorgeous Naturally!! it’s been too hot to wear makeup here in TX!!

Jon on

That’s very nice to hear! Also, congrats to Neil Patrick Harris on his last minute Emmy Nomination!

I can’t believe this is called NEWS! It’s also hard to believe that I actually went to college with this girl.. Back then she wasn’t such a debutante. Amazing what money and fame can do to someone!

Carrie is so Beautiful!! Such a sweetheart!

Congratulations Carrie! I wish you and your husband nothing but the best. (For Clint: I hear you but this is an entertainment magazine, not the evening news.)

Renee on

I agree Clint. I thought she was forgettable in college as well.

dana on

..though she is a truly beautiful girl, inside and out….I do not think she looke nearly her best on her wedding day. First of all…far, far, far too much makeup..she doesn’t need it! And the hair..just a mess! How much more beautiful and elegant it would have beeen to go with a sleek bun/chignon and about half that amount of makeup..this look is overdone and tacky…sorry!!!!

BettyBoop on

Clint and Renee must be working at McDonalds. Jealous much?

Jo on

why anyone would want to look orange on their wedding day is beyond me…too much tanning – yuck !! also, who wants fake eyelashes??? ewwwwww…her face is barely recognizable in this pic! a little too fake for my taste. i liked her a lot better during idol…she wasn’t all “hollywood” then… and much prettier. (with more meat on her bones!)

Do they not have editors at PEOPLE.com? I find typos in every article I read on here…no excuse for that! This isnt perezhilton.com!

She looks the same as always…….

slow news day?? im tired of hearing about this bi***!!! i feel sorry for her new hubby!! i give it 2 years

Carrie is a doll, but that hairdo could have been alot more “polished” and neater looking. Looks like just what the stylist did – pick up pieces and poke with bobby pins. Carrie has worn some very pretty updos which I was hoping to see for her wedding. southern I thought was more sophisticated.

Laura on

Personally – for having so many professionals handle her “look”, I think her eyes are too black, eyelashes look like old, cakey mascara was used and her eyebrows are really dark for being such a light blonde! She is so gorgeous – but she must prefer that heavy liner as opposed to a more natural look.

Megan on

Oh Clint…how is she a debutante? Your comment reeks of bitterness and jealousy.

jealous on

Seriously quit criticizing her! She is beautiful no matter what. For the ones that say they went to school with her, who cares! Don’t be so negative! If you can’t post anything positive, why post at all!

Eugenia on

I personally don’t find this women to be all that beautiful, lots of make up on that face she…

Clint…Carrie has worked very hard for her celebrity and money. That is news for those of us wishing her well. What have you accomplished since College? Newsworthy?

Carrie has changed ALOT since her days at NSU. I was in a few classes with her too

What has she ever done to you.

I think she has done very well considering the speed at which she got quite famous at. What you see is what you get and I would hope she has changed since she was in school with some of you. Isnt that what growing up is all about. She carries herself very well in the professional arena – what she does in her personal life is none of my business. I think Mike is a very lucky guy and I do think they will make it and if she is not beautiful I would like to be that kind of not beautiful.

Kat on

She looks fabulous but what the HECK is on her head? She looks like a pageant queen.

I love Carrie! So it SO sweet!

carrie played the “nice girl” card on Idol…the minute Idol was over she showed her true colors—over inflated ego to go with her x-large head. Anyone see her last xmas special or any other performance on TV? Wow talk about fame going to her head…she needs to eat some humble pie. She always wears WAAAAYYY too much makeup and the wedding day tops it off—she looks like a tranny….and she’s got no lips either….poor Mike hasn’t got much to kiss.

You wish on

Clint…sounds like someone is jealous of Carrie’s talent and success. Just because you “went to college with this girl” does not mean you know her, so don’t pretend like you do. That’s what happens when people become famous because they actually have a talent that’s out-of-this-world…all of their old acquaintances start coming out and issuing these jealous statements about them because they are still stuck in that same old town doing nothing. It’s not her fault God gave her an amazing gift that she blesses us with by singing great songs. Get over yourself Clint.

Carrie is a beutiful woman inside and out!
We wish Her and Mike all the best always!!!

For all of you people commenting on what she looked like in College, okay she is how old now.. 27.. People change and mature… I know I look better than what I did in college! grow up!

I think Carrie looked absolutely stunning, as always. She is a gorgeous girl, whom has worked so very hard to accomplish what she has in this short 5 years. For the ones that say they knew her in school, I doubt seriously that you ever were a friend of hers, or you would be so very proud of her and all she has done for her hometown of Checotah. She is so caring and giving of her time and money.
Too bad so many people have to be so….jealous.
