In an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Marie Osmond reveals she struggled to feel beautiful while growing up in a house full of boys.

“I had stringy, straight hair,” Marie shares. “My brothers had thick hair and long eyelashes. I guess God knew I could buy mine!”

But these days, Marie, 54, feels beautiful both inside and out. “I started to study makeup at a really young age,” she says.

“My mom had great skin and I feel really blessed to have inherited some of those genes. She was always an advocate of putting a nice warm washcloth on your face at night and making sure your skin was clean.”

And now, she’s teamed up with Too Faced cosmetics co-founder Jerrod Blandino to create her own eye shadow line!

“They wanted to pay me, so I said, ‘Guys, do me a favor and write a nice large check to my charity, Children’s Miracle Network.’ So they did!”
