She may be a young, fresh face to the country music scene, but Kelsea Ballerini knows her stuff when it comes to hair and beauty. Ballerini is the queen of looking effortlessly flawless on any red carpet, whether she’s rocking a bold lip or experimenting with her gorgeous blonde locks. After carefully considering all of her different looks throughout the past few award shows (and casually sobbing over how jealous we are of her gorgeousness!), we’ve compiled a basic list of beauty tips to follow a la Ballerini’s style.

Here are six beauty hacks to take from Kelsea Ballerini’s repertoire:

ACM look sneak peak #2!

1. Fishtail braids = fastest yet fanciest hairdo
Sometimes, hair just does not cooperate. It’s either too flat or too frizzy or just too blah. In need of a snazzy way to liven up the mop you think is atop your head? Take ten minutes to whip out a messy fishtail braid and voilà! Red carpet ready, just like Ballerini at the 50th ACM Awards.  

2. A smoky eye never fails for a formal event
Making a statement is mega-important for formal events. When the outfit or the shoes aren’t enough, call in the classic smoky-eye. Ballerini has perfected the sultry look and takes it with her to album covers, red carpets and sometimes while just having a day off! If done right, your eye color will pop and stand out among a crowd.

3. Just the touch of a nude gloss will do
Strong lips are definitely in at the moment. From Taylor Swift’s classic red lips to the comeback of the plum shades, it’s rare to see a beauty look without a bold kiss. Ballerini, though, tends to take the natural approach and keep it simple by typically applying a nude gloss. Occasionally throwing in a pink or peach tint from time to time, Ballerini embraces the au naturel look to keep it real.

#kelfie because it’s fall.

4. Eyelash extensions and mascara are your friends
A lot of girls would agree that mascara makes all the difference. The dark contrast of a long lash to the lightness of an eye color brightens up anyone’s total look. Ballerini is no different. She’s admitted in interviews that she takes full advantage of those eyelash extensions to get the right amount of curl for her lashes and finishes it all off with tons of mascara. Same, girl. Same.

5. Beach waves NEVER go out of style
Just because it’s not summer all year long does not mean you can’t have beach waves. Besides, a little bit of salt water spray goes a long way in the beauty department. Ballerini wears her waves as much as possible and knows how to make it look cute with every outfit.

6. Take good care of your skin

We know it’s hard when you come home from a long night and are too tired to take off your makeup. We’ve all been there. Just listen to your mother’s voice in your head telling you to wash your face because it saves your skin. Ballerini sticks to her routine at night in which she has been said to use Clarisonic to help with the process. Clogged pores and rough skin texture are not the most fun things, and sleeping in makeup over time can damage your face immensely. Wash your face and love it like you mean it.
