Skating darling Ashley Wagner and her American teammates brought plenty of glamour and grace to the ice during the Sochi Olympics.

And good news for the US, the talented bunch plan to go to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea.

Here, Ashley (a COVERGIRL beauty!) reveals how she achieves her natural, gorgeous look …on the ice and on the road.

Glam Slam: What is your trademark beauty look?
Ashley Wagner: It changes, but right now I am really loving a bold red lip. A nice little winged out smoky eye with tons of mascara. Mascara! Mascara! Mascara! I am obsessed with the new COVERGIRL Bombshell Mascara. That would be my current signature look.

GS: What is your favorite part of doing your makeup when you get ready for a competition?
Ashley: The whole makeup ritual in general is a huge part of my process for getting ready to go out on the ice and compete. It settles me into the competitive mindset. I sit down right in front of the mirror with some music, or I put on something lighthearted like “Sex & The City” or “How I Met Your Mother.” It really helps me transform into the character I am trying to portray on the ice.

GS: How does your makeup change from real-life to competition?
Ashley: My real life look is all about being natural and “easy breezy.” {laughter} I live in California, so it’s all about the beachy look. I have this alter ego on the ice which is really fun. I get to play and become someone completely different than who I am. I can play around with crazy lipcolor and fun eye makeup looks.

GS: So being in Russia, did you do anything special with your makeup in Sochi?
Ashley: Coming to Russia, I knew the Olympics were going to be absolutely insane. I wanted to look professional but have it be quick and on-the-go. So I really stuck with a nice bright lip and simple eyes. I needed something that would pop and look professional, and come across in pictures, but be super quick and easy for me. So that was my go-to look.

GS: How do you keep your skin looking so good with travel, climate, time changes, etc.?
Ashley: Hydration, hydration, hydration is the number one thing. Aside from that, I always have Olay fresh effects Makeup Removal Cloths to clean off my face and keep my skin clear. And never go to bed with your makeup on!

GS: What do you eat to stay healthy? What keeps your hair and skin looking so good?
Ashley: I take vitamins to help out with my hair and my skin. You really have to fight the cold year round when you are a figure skater. It destroys your hair and your skin because it’s so dry. I need to make sure I stay hydrated. I eat a lot of fish with nice healthy fatty oils. And lots of avocado!
