Rocking a gorgeous moody lip complimented by a piecey ponytail, Kelsea Ballerini completely slayed on the red carpet at the 2016 CMA Awards! And while the blonde beauty looked both fresh and chic in her extra long lashes and flawless skin, it was her bold lipstick that truly drove her beauty look to star status.
Wow! Kelsea Ballerini, 23, looked SO stunning at the 2016 Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 2 and we could not get enough of her dark lipstick and bright eyes. The nominated singer sported lashes for days, burgundy lips that perfectly matched her gown, and silver under-eyeshadow that truly made her peepers pop. Her blonde locks were neatly pulled back in a volumized pony featuring a deep side part. Talk about a gorgeous beauty look!
To get a perfect pout like Kelsea’s, don’t forget to prep your lips with a gentle exfoliator and moisturizer before applying your matte lipstick. And to create enviable hair volume, lightly tease your tresses with a comb before tightly securing with an elastic. There’s no doubt Kelsea knows how to command attention on the red carpet!
But we’re not surprised by how fierce Kelsea looked at the awards show. The 23-year-old ALWAYS brings her A game when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices. Just last month, on Oct. 20, Kelsea was named Breakout Artist of the Year at the CMT Artists of the Year show, which taped on Oct. 19, and to celebrate the huge honor, she gave a performance of her most recent hit, “Peter Pan.” During her big moment, the singer stunned in an absolutely gorgeous sparkling blue dress! It was one of our favorite looks of hers to date, but tonight’s definitely gave this dress a run for its money.
Kelsea was nominated for two CMA awards last year — Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year. It was the first time she was ever nominated! This year Kelsea is up for the same two awards. Hopefully this is her time to shine, she’s certainly dressed to win tonight! But even if the young star goes home empty handed, she’s at least a winner on the fashion front!
