Country icon Dolly Parton has revealed she does not wear sweats at home and likes keeping her makeup on at night in case of an emergency.
Dolly, 75, who is known for her ultra-glamorous appearances, discussed her home makeup and fashion regimen in an interview with WSJ. Magazine.
Though Dolly admitted she ‘[doesn’t] wear sweat clothes’ at home, she does have her own apparel to stay comfortable in.
Rather than sweats, she has her ‘house clothes’ that consist of ‘a little dress-type teddy, a long teddy, then I have a little jacket or shirt to match if I get cold.’
‘I call them my baby clothes because they’re soft like a baby,’ she told the magazine.
Dolly also revealed she prefers to keep her makeup on at night in case of a midnight emergency.
The singer admitted she does ‘all my beauty work and cleaning my face in the morning because I usually try to keep my makeup on at night.’
‘I never know if there’s going to be an earthquake or a tornado or a storm and I’m going to have to go out in the middle of the night!’ Dolly explained of her routine.
She jokingly continued, ‘I don’t like to go home and just tear down completely, because my poor husband has to look at me.’
‘And in the morning when I get up I start all over again, put on my makeup and then touch it up through the day.’
When it comes to going out, Dolly will apply only a touch more makeup to her morning look.
To achieve this evening look, Dolly says she will ‘add a little more shadow, a little more glitter, redder or brighter lipstick.’
‘I’m so used to doing my own makeup and hair I can do it really fast.’
Known for her voluminous blonde hair and head-turning makeup, Dolly found inspiration for her ‘exaggerated look’ from a surprising source – her hometown’s ‘town tramp’, whom she called ‘the prettiest thing’ she had ever seen.
‘She wore colorful patchwork skirts and pretty blouses and showed a little cleavage and had red nails and piled-up blond hair and red lipstick and high heels. She was the prettiest thing I’d ever seen,’ she said.
‘When everybody would say, “Oh, she’s just trash,” I’d say, “Well, trash is what I’m going to grow up to be.” And I guess my look is glamorous trash!’
