Here's Why Country Superstar Dolly Parton Always Sleeps with Her Makeup On

She is famous for her extreme displays of glamour in every public appearance. But few know that she goes to bed in full makeup, just in case something comes up in the middle of the night.

From wearing wigs for decades to hiding secret tattoos, 73-year-old country music legend Dolly Parton has admitted her weakness for beauty enhancements over the years, and yet she always has a new revelation to baffle us all.

A CURIOUS BEAUTY TIP

Known for always doing things her own way – and succeeding – the “Jolene” singer has a beauty habit that goes against what dermatologists strongly recommend: she always sleeps with her makeup on.

Newest generations have a new style icon in reality TV star Kim Kardashian, and while her aesthetics are different to that of Parton, the latter shares the custom of sleeping with full makeup on, although for different reasons.

The “Queen of Country” made the curious revelation in a recent Q&A with the New York Times on which she shared a strange custom she observes, especially when she is traveling.

“I clean my face in the mornings. You never know if you’re going to wreck the bus, you never know if you’re going to be somewhere in a hotel and there’s going to be a fire. So I leave my makeup on at night and clean my face in the morning,” the singer said.

LOOKS COME FIRST

Parton would rather be caught dead than failing to honor her glamorous reputation, and this commitment motivates many of her decisions, such as never having tried the rides at her own theme park, “Dollywood.”

“With all my hair I got so much to lose, like my wig or my shoes. I don’t like to get messed up. I’m gonna have some handsome man mess it up, I don’t want some ride doing it,” she stated.

FOLLOWING HER LEAD

Newest generations have a new style icon in reality TV star Kim Kardashian, and while her aesthetics are different to that of Parton, the latter shares the custom of sleeping with full makeup on, although for different reasons.

“Have you ever slept with your makeup on?” actress Busy Philips asked Kardashian on an episode of her podcast “Busy Tonight in 2018.

“Oh, all the time. Like even if I can’t have glam the next day, I’ll sleep perfectly and maybe I’ll redo my skin, but I try to salvage it for two days,” Kardashian replied.
