Miranda Lambert Goes Makeup-Free for “People” Magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful Issue

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert poses with no makeup on for People magazine's annual World's Most Beautiful issue. The natural look is close to what Miranda looks like when she's at home in Oklahoma with husband, Blake Shelton.

She says of her at-home beauty routine, "I just put on some tinted moisturizer and sunscreen and mascara. And lip gloss! It's kind of an addiction."  

Miranda only has a glam squad for big events like last Sunday's ACM Awards. On tour, she does her own hair and makeup as a way to have some alone-time before shows.

"That's my time to focus and calm down, listen to music and warm up a little bit," Miranda says. "I have a product bag the size of Texas -- just makeup and hair stuff and curling irons."

Miranda adds that Blake thinks she looks prettier without a lot of makeup on, which causes her some frustration.

Says Miranda, "I think, 'Stop! Really? This took me three hours!' But he doesn't care. He sees me the same, whether I have a whole glam squad or I'm just hanging out at home."  

Carrie Underwood also opens up about a disastrous perm she got at age 13 in the Beauty Confessions section of People's World's Most Beautiful issue, on stands Friday.

Tim McGraw Sandy Hook Fundraiser Causing More Fallout

Image Courtesy Big Machine RecordsTim McGraw's Concert for Sandy Hook Promise is generating more headlines.  Eleven of the 26 families of victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT are now distancing themselves from the fundraiser.

According to the Hartford Courant, the families released a statement clarifying they aren't associated with or supported by the Sandy Hook Promise organization. The non-profit's stated purpose is to help protect children from gun violence, but these families want donors to understand the organization doesn't represent all the victims' families. Some of them feel Sandy Hook Promise is raising money off their dead children without their consent, in order to to lobby for tougher gun laws.

As previously reported, The Concert for Sandy Hook Promise in Hartford, CT this July is part of Tim's Shotgun Rider tour with Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, but Currington dropped out of the show last week, saying on his Facebook page he was bowing out because of the controversy, but would make a donation to a "local organization.”

McGraw received backlash from gun rights supporters, including the National Rifle Association, after announcing his participation in the fundraiser.  He responded last week in a statement to the Washington Post, declaring, “As a gun owner, I support gun ownership.  I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety -- most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children.  I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that.  Through a personal connection, I saw first-hand how the Sandy Hook tragedy affected families and I felt their pain. The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.”

The “personal connection” to which McGraw refers is his fiddle player, Dean Brown, a longtime friend of Mark Barden, whose 7-year-old son, Daniel, was killed in the Sandy Hook shooting.

Of note, country group Little Big Town has spoken out in support of Tim McGraw's Concert for Sandy Hook Promise.

LBT's Phillip Sweet tells Rolling Stone, "It is depressing that people have that much time and energy to invest, when they could be doing better things, like educating their child and loving people in the world instead of attacking someone who's trying to do something good, like Tim McGraw. Why would you want to attack that?"
