If we were to break down Kelly Rowland’s impressive qualities, we would need more than a few pages in a magazine because this woman is legendary.
From her unmatched work ethic to her powerhouse voice that soars from R&B ballads to club-bumping music and record-breaking artistry that isn’t always synonymous with her singing – she writes her own music, authored a best-selling book, and stars in billion-dollar films and shows; Kelly is the real definition of a multi-faceted Queen.
And let’s not get into her neck-breaking looks. Whenever Ms. Rowland graces the red carpet or Instagram feed, we’re all left lifting our jaws off the floor. So, in that light, we thought it’d be a brilliant idea to compile a list of the beauty essentials she’d never be caught dead without.
Keep scrolling for a mind-blowing revelation.
An oldie but a goldie, this pocket-friendly pick from Vaseline will give you soft, satisfyingly radiant, and nourished skin – all under $10. Its total godsend formula also comes in handy when your parched skin requires some major TLC and absorbs super-quickly without leaving any trace on your skin.
‘When the light bounces off of it, it’s just like, ta-da!’ Kelly described its benefits in an interview with People Magazine.
For firmer, youthful-looking skin, this anti-aging product combines retinol with skin-illuminating lactic acid to visibly even out skin tone, soften fine lines & wrinkles, and smooth texture.
And, according to Kelly Rowland, the serum changed her skin in just 14 days – you’ll no longer have to deal with acne scars, age spots, or uneven textures!
Brought to you by a brand that needs no introduction, if under-eye circles are the bane of your existence, this is your boo. A potent do-it-all beauty balm brimming with a super-moisturizing blend of ingredients (argan, coconut jojoba, olive + conditioning shea butter), this formula instantly cools, brightens, and depuffs your skin. The result? A sexy, dewy finish!
Plus, it comes in a take-anywhere package that fits everything from your night-out purse to your blazer’s pocket.
This tinted, chemical-free sunscreen from UnSun Cosmetics offers you the best of both worlds – UV-ray protection and a sexy, sun-kissed glow.
The ultra-hydrating, antioxidant-rich formula also goes on smoothly, feels like air, and covers a range of skin tones (from fair to dark chocolates) without leaving a ghostly residue. Add to that its amazingly clean, zero-animals-tested, and reef-safe formulation, and you get the best sunscreen ever!
FYI… this SPF also makes for a perfect base under makeup, so you don’t need to buy a primer – this is all the primer you need for your makeup routine!
Think of this pores-and blemish-blurring foundation as an Insta filter IRL. It glides on like a silky dream and, according to Ms. Kelly, works as the perfect buildable formula for Queens with deep skin tones.
‘For me (when it comes to foundation), it was either not enough coverage or too much coverage. Pat McGrath created the perfect blend of them both. Its texture is just like silk. I brush it on and sometimes use the little sponge to push it into the skin. It’s my favorite. She nailed it, she really nailed it!’ she said in a recent interview with People Magazine.
Be flawless with these everyday silky, high-quality lashes from Elora Lane. They deliver incredible volume and length and work on every eye shape. Also, the owner, Sheika Daley, is Kelly’s friend. Therefore, you’re practically assured they’re A-star!
Elora Lane lashes are a subscription service for lashes. They deliver once a month and come as three in a kit. A friend started this company, but honestly, these are my favorite lashes – Kelly Rowland.
You’ll want to add this velvet-matte lip liner to your beauty repertoire ASAP. Infused with high-impact ingredients such as jojoba oil, murumuru, and shea butter, this adventurous lip crayon allows you to effortlessly outline, define, and fill your pout for a pristine, power pout.
Its formula is also so rich and super-hydrating that you only need one swipe for super-bold and ultra-kissable lips. Now we know why Kelly’s lips always look so juicy!
