The 2013 ESPY Awards were last week and while the event is dedicated to honor athletes, it was many of the non-athlete beauties who got most of the attention for their amazing hair and makeup looks. Selena Gomez graced every Best Dressed list rocking a Dolce & Gabana crimson red lace dress with lips and nails to match.
The 20-year old singer/actress sizzled in red as she presented the award for best breakthrough athlete with New York Giants’ Victor Cruz. Selena’s hair was worn in soft flowing waves and her crimson red lip matched her red mini-dress to a tee. She completed the look with crimson red nail polish for the perfect finishing touch.
Crimson red lipstick looks gorgeous on ladies with tan skin like Selena Gomez. To pull off Selena’s exact look, keep the rest of the makeup minimal and choose a red lipstick that complements your skin. Bright reds work best on a pale face, while olive skin calls for brown reds or darker shades.
