Jordin Sparks

We’re going behind the scenes of the Broadway musical In The Heights with the star of the show and former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks as she gets glam…

With all that heat styling, we couldn’t help but wonder if Jordin uses extensions? “Oh my gosh, yes! I love them! The first time I ever wore clip-in extensions was during Idol,” shares the songstress. “They changed my life! It’s really fun to experiment with length and color. I also love wigs, especially for touring. They help keep my hair healthy because if I tried straightening my hair every single day, it would fall out.”

But how does Jordin always manage to step out with a gorgeous beauty profile? “When someone has to do my makeup, I usually bring Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with me. It’s the only foundation I’ve used that doesn’t make me break out,” explains the star.

Scoring hip hair. Check. Rocking amazing makeup. Check. Becoming a Broadway star…do tell? “It fell into my lap! I took a meeting and they asked if I would do Broadway and I said yes! It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” she explains. “I didn’t really think anything was going to happen. You take meetings and hope for something to happen, but you never know if it will. Two weeks later, I had the offer in my e-mail inbox!”
