Kelly Rowland Calls Herself A “Beauty Whore”—With Good Reason

Kelly Rowland–Grammy-winning singer, author, mom, and all-around superstar–made our dreams come true when she appeared in the Destiny’s Child reunion during Beyoncé’s historic Coachella shows last month. A lot of preparation went into her performance, starting months before, and leading right up until showtime. We caught up with Rowland at the launch for Schick’s new Intuition f.a.b. razor and she gave us all the details on how she got ready for that unforgettable set. She also dished on her go-to beauty products, loving laser treatments, and her self-care advice to expecting moms.

In the past you’ve said you’re a beauty hoarder, so if you had to kind of edit down–

—I didn’t say hoarder. I probably said whore. Beauty whore!

If you just chose a few products what would they be? Like favorite must-haves.

One would definitely be Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform. Another one would be iS Clinical face wash, because I believe in washing your face. I believe in skincare above anything. A sunscreen. iS Clinical has a great sunscreen. Jessica Alba has this awesome [Honest Beauty] Magic Balm for your eyes. It’s clear. It’s awesome. It’s perfect for summertime. Pat McGrath has these beautiful colors in her eye palettes. Stunning for summer. She just gave me [a palette] through my makeup artist, Sheika Daley. And I’m in love with it.

Tell us about your Coachella beauty look. Did it change from week one to week two?

It did change week-to-week. The first week, where we had the rhinestone fatigue camo on—so, so crazy—was a smokier look and a little bit more sultry. It was fun. The next week was glow, glow, glow. I told Sheika I really wanted to glow. And she glowed me right on out. I loved it.
