The vision that is Kelsea Ballerini has arrived on the Grammy’s red carpet and we have all the details that went into the totally attainable glam.
“Kelsea’s gorgeous black and white dress inspired us to give a nod to a classic makeup look,” shares Kelsey Deenihan, who works double-duty as Ballerini’s hair and makeup artist. “Slightly retro with a modern twist, this cut-crease and winged eyeliner are glam for a red carpet.”
For Kelsea’s eyes, Deenihan started by applying Shell from the CoverGirl TruNaked Nudes Palette to the entire lid, up to the brow bone. (Bonus: Every single makeup item runs less than $11.)
“Then, with a small liner brush, I used Jet from the CoverGirl TruNaked Smoky Palette and created a small, soft winged liner. To intensify the lash line, I added CoverGirl Exhibitionist Lash Enhancing Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Slightly above the crease, I used Cocoa from the CoverGirl TruNaked Nudes Palette and blended to create a cut crease. For a dramatic lash, I applied a few generous coats of the CoverGirl Exhibitionist Stretch & Strengthen Mascara in 800 Very Black.”
The black-and-white ensemble also inspired the hair style—“a simple nod to a classic bouffant, but with a modern twist and smooth, movable texture.” Exclusively using Nexxus products, Deenihan showcased Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist ($12) as her final insurance step, which she sprayed all over “to ensure the hair has movement, but will stay in place all night long.”
