There are so many things I love about award shows: The incredible performances, the suspense of finding out who will win big, the drama leading up to it all– what’s not to love?
When it comes to country music awards, I can’t get enough of the red carpet looks because, in my humble opinion, the women (and men) of country music know how to clean themselves up while still looking like actual people– and Miranda Lambert is one of my favorite artists to watch every year for this exact reason.
At the 2018 ACMs, Miranda looked as stunning as ever in a red George Chakras gown paired with a simple hair and makeup look. “With Miranda’s rich choice in color for her red carpet dress and accessories, we decided to keep her makeup paired down and simply sophisticated with a gorgeous healthy skin focus,” makeup artist Moani Lee told E! News.
To prep Miranda’s skin and achieve this healthy, glowy look, Lee said they used a simple less-than-$2 product you probably already have in your home: Vaseline.
“I actually use Vaseline’s Original Lip Therapy for hydration on lips,” Lee said. “I applied it right at the beginning and let it sit while I continued on to the rest of Miranda’s makeup, this allowed for the lips to hydrate.”
If it’s good enough for Miranda, it’s good enough for us!
