She's not even 24 years old, and Kelsea Ballerini has already made her mark in the country music world. She signed a deal with Black River Entertainment when she was 19, and was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2017 Grammy Awards. With her catchy tunes like "Love Me Like You Mean It" and "Dibs," Kelsea has become a pop country to artist to watch.

But she's also making waves as a beauty ambassador of sorts. Like most celebrities, she has a beauty routine that she follows, and products that she loves. And her fan base is paying attention. She's got a great team of people who help take her look to superstar status and bring out her best features. She recently spoke with InStyle to share some of her beauty tips and tricks. If you want to get Kelsea's look, keep reading to see what she has to say.

When asked how her beauty routine is different when she's on stage compared to when she's not on stage, the songstress tells InStyle, "On stage, I go bolder with fashion, hair and makeup. I love a smoky eye and long lashes." 

And speaking of long lashes, Kelsea credits eyelash extensions as being one of the go-to beauty staples that has changed her life. Also on the list? Hair texture spray, dry shampoo and gray nail polish. Some of her favorite products include Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo, essie nail polish, and anything by Oribe.

As for her off stage beauty routine, she tries to keep things natural. But when she hits a festival, her favorite look to try is a messy fishtail braid or a hat and a cute outfit. And since she doesn't wash her hair every day, she uses a curling wand to get messy waves. Then she "teases the heck out of it" to give it a boost.

One surprising thing the "Peter Pan" singer told InStyle is that she's always wanted to dye her hair a bright color. She says, "I recently dyed the ends of my hair purple. It only lasted about a day but I'm totally happy I did it!"

And if there's one important beauty tip that Kelsea thinks is worth sharing, it's that you should always wash your face before you go to bed. Can we call dibs on this great piece of advice?
