She’s the top-selling female country artist of all time and Shania Twain looks better than ever. The 50-year-old is rockin’ an edgy look for her latest tour which has her back on the road after ten years. She opted for a punk vibe with heavy smokey eyes, a red lip and switched from brunette to team blonde. She told The Marilyn Dennis Show: “The secret to staying beautiful is to laugh as much as possible. I try to stay active. I love tennis and horseback riding. Be a mom – I highly recommend it. Kids keep you young! I exfoliate a lot, use a C complex, and I like to use oils on my face. I also use olive oil to take my makeup off to prevent my skin from drying out.”

The star spoke with Allure Magazine about her red lip routine: “There are tricks I’ve learned from makeup artists on shoots. Put on the red lipstick, then blot it with a tissue, then they put powder over the tissue and sort of press it onto your lips. Then re-apply. It turns it into a stain that lasts much longer.”
