Adam Lambert has always been a fan of getting glammed up before hitting the stage. But fellow American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson would like to know if the singer has any plans to help his fans get glam in the same way.
On Tuesday’s (Jan. 26) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, Lambert stopped by to talk about his upcoming livestream when the host complimented him on his smoky-eye look. “Look how good you look!” she exclaimed. “Are you ever going to come out with a makeup line? Because you do your makeup so well.”
Lambert said that he’s been using makeup for a lot of his life, and that he could see himself starting his own beauty company. “I would love to; I think that would be really fun,” he said. “I was in theater, so [makeup] was a part of getting ready for the show. I just loved getting to sit in front of the mirror and transform my face and cover up all of my freckles at the time.”
Clarkson also complimented the singer’s fashion game before Lambert quickly let her know that he’s had to downgrade some of his outfits thanks to the ongoing pandemic. “It’s sort of a relief because the quarantine 15 is real,” he said, giggling. “I’m wearing sweatpants with elastic waistbands more than I have in my entire life.’
The pair also took a moment to bond over their shared American Idol experience: Clarkson asked Lambert what he remembers loving about the experience, and the star was quick to answer. “I had been scared of so much, fear was holding me back in so many areas of my life,” he recalled. “That year before I auditioned, I just had this breakthrough where I was like, ‘I’m not scared anymore.’ Idol was one of the thing that came up, I saw the audition, and I said ‘Why not?’”
