Kelsea Ballerini In Haney – 2017 CMT Music Awards

The 2017 CMT Music Awards took place at the Music City Centre in Nashville on Wednesday (June 7), with rising star Kelsea Ballerini in attendance.

The singer-songwriter wore a Haney dress from the Pre-Fall 2017 collection. The rounded neckline of this satin dress works well with the side cut-outs and contrasting navy bandeau.

The ivory and navy palette is a fresh take on the monochromatic colour blocking were used to seeing. I just wish the shoe had been a darker colour to create some more balance. The dark nails and Sara Weinstock and Rachel Katz jewels are thoughtful touches.

2017 Radio Disney Music Awards

A range of young starlets came out for the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards on Saturday (April 29) in LA.

Skai Jackson
: While Skai has impressed with her youthfully exuberant style, this Marc Jacobs Spring 2017 lace frock was a bit too overachieving for its own good. At first I blamed the feathered sleeves, but I think it was the neck piece that sent the dress into an overwrought Victoriana spirit.

Kelsea Ballerini
: This sexy little Versus Versace Fall 2016 number had all the hallmarks of the brand with its body-con silhouette and edgy hardware. She attempted to bring some youthful fun to the sultriness of the look with a star-studded clutch, a LEGEND AMRAPALI Surya triple spike ring and bubblegum-pink Tamara Mellon ‘Frontline’ sandals.

Kelsea Ballerini In Zac Posen – 2017 Symphony Fashion Show


Country music star Kelsea Ballerini performed at the 2017 Symphony Fashion Show, featuring Zac Posen confections, on Tuesday (April 18) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Before taking the stage, the singer was on the red carpet in a Zac Posen Spring 2017 gown in homage to the designer of the hour.

A youthfully girly side of glamour came forth in this embroidered, iridescent design with an architecturally layered skirt that ethereally floated away from the body.

A rather precious fairy moment—some might say twee—it was fitting for Kelsea’s rendition of ‘Peter Pan,’ which closed out the event.

Get the Look: Kelsea Ballerini’s ACM Awards Sultry Smoky Eye

Kelsea Ballerini graced the 2017 American Country Music Awards red carpet on Sunday (April 2) with a sexy smoky eye to balance out her sweet Monique Lhuillier frock. While she didn’t take home any awards that night, she definitely was a winner in our books for her pretty and playful look.

Celebrity makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan created Ballerini’s fresh face by first prepping the skin with Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream and following up with the Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm. To make sure the eyes were extra hydrated, Deenihan applied Skyn Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels under the singer’s eyes for about ten minutes to hydrate and firm the eyes. To finish off the skin prep, the makeup artist applied Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield to prime the skin and control shine.

After Deenihan prepped the skin she applied Armani Power Fabric Foundation in shade 5.5 to Kelsea’s face and neck. “This foundation leaves the skin with the perfect amount of coverage and keeps the skin looking fresh all night – even with four look changes” explains the makeup artist, “I like to apply foundation with a damp beauty blender sponge for added moisture and a slightly dewy look.”

To start on the boldest part of the look, Deenihan framed the eye by defining the brows by slightly filling them in using Dior’s Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil in Universal Brown. Then to start the shadow, Deenihan used the matte chocolate brown shade from the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 268 Candeur Et Experience and covered the whole lid up to the crease and then smudged underneath the bottom lash line. Then to highlight the shadow to accentuate the eyes, the makeup artist used Avon’s mark. All Time Eye Hook Up Shadow in Sun Ray. According to Deenihan, “[adding] it to the inner corners of the eye really opens the eyes when the shimmer of the shadow hits the light.” To finish the eyes, she used a couple coats of mark. Lash Act Build and Define Mascara in black for an extra boost of drama and dimension.

To highlight Kelsea’s cheekbones, Deenihan used mark. Glowdacious Illuminating Powder in Amped up on the hollows of her cheeks and mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palettes on the high cheekbones for a radiant glow. To finish off the cheeks, she added a hint of La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Berry Glow, “I love this cream blush because it blends over powders seamlessly and really illuminates the skin” says Deenihan.

Finally, to finish off the look, Kelsey explains that the singer loves a natural lip so she used mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Bare All for a hint of color and long lasting moisture.
