Kacey Musgraves had quite a night at the Grammys! Not only did she win the award for Best Country Song and Best Country Album, she looked radiant on the red carpet as well. The star began her evening in a demure blush tulle gown by Armani Prive,  then swapped the dress for full country gear (complete with light up cowboy boots) during her live performance.

InStyle.com got the exclusive peek at her getting ready with her makeup artist, Kristofer Buckle. “I wanted to complement Kacey’s gorgeous blush-colored dress with an equally soft, romantic look,” Buckle told us about the inspiration for the look. He started off prepping Musgraves’ face with a primer,  then applied maracuja creaseless concealer ($24; tartecosmetics.com) underneath her eyes to erase any darkness.

We were especially obsessed with the star’s dewy peach flush, which Buckle achieved by dusting Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful ($26; tartecosmetics.com) over the apples of her cheeks. For her lips, Buckle told us, “To complement the softness of her look, I applied Power Pigment in Tipsy ($24; tartecosmetics.com).” During her performance, he added a dramatic cat eye with MultiplEye lash enhancing liquid liner ($22; tartecosmetics.com). We think there is a new it girl in the music world and we can’t wait to see what she does next!
