Alejandra Espinoza looked HOT at the Premios Juventud! Get her gorgeous look with this tutorial from her hair and makeup artist!

Mexican actress Alejandra Espinoza stole the red carpet with her beautiful look for the Premios Juventud this year. The actress wore a kelly green dress with minimal jewelry and kept her makeup flawless with ombré hair. Makeup artist Franz Munoz -- you can follow him on Twitter @MakeupByFranz -- was responsible for creating her ethereal look.

For her makeup, Alejandra wanted a natural, yet polished, look. Franz used warm colors on her, including a light plum liner on eyes, coral on cheeks to give the look of a natural flush, and soft rosy lips to give a bit of contrast with her sexy green ivory bathing suit cover-up dress. The final look was a beachy, yet very sophisticated and elegant. To compliment Alejandra’s sexy green dress, Franz created voluminous beach waves to accentuate her sharp cheekbones. Alejandra wanted something simple, yet fresh.

MAKEUP STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Create a perfect canvas using L'Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($24.99) as a skin primer to give a nice dewy, radiant complexion

STEP 2: Gently dab the L'Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Golden Beige($10.95) to contour. Blend in with the L'Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup in Caramel Beige ($10.95)  to create a sun-kissed caramel glow. No powder needed to keep the look fresh and dewy.

STEP 3: For the eyes, apply the darkest shade from the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Absolute Taupe ($9.99) over your entire eyelid and the medium-colored one in the crease. Use the lightest shade from L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quad in Perpetual Nude ($9.99) along your brow bone. *Secret tip: Franz added a bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter in Goldmine ($12) to make the makeup more llamativo

STEP 4: To highlight the eyes, first add a winged line above the upper lash line with a fun summer green shade from L'Oréal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in True Teal ($8.99).  Beneath the lower lash line use the L’Oreal Paris Silkissime Eyeliner by Infallible in Pure Purple ($8.99) as it’s a perfect color for daytime that plays well with tan to darker skin tones.

STEP 5: Apply two coats of L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara in Black ($7.99) to the upper lashes

STEP 4: On the apple of your cheeks, lightly dab the blush from Urban Decay’s NAKED FLUSHED in Native ($30) for a natural flush and highlight the cheek bones and nose with its built-in highlighter. STEP 5: Create a polished glossy lip using L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipcolour in Rose Melody ($9.99)

HAIR STEP-BY-STEP:

STEP 1: Start off with dry hair. Spray a bit of the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray ($4.99) at the roots to give it more texture and volume.

STEP 2: Separate your hair into four sections and apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99) directly onto the areas you will be curling (about from about 3 inches down from the roots and 3 inches from the ends).

STEP 3: Place a 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron about 3 inches from the roots and wrap medium sections of the hair around the barrel. Be sure to stay away from the ends.

STEP 4: Continue around the head until all hair is curled.

STEP 5: Finish the look with the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray ($4.99) for a glossy, frizz-controlled finish

*TIP: To achieve a ombré similar to Alejandra’s new hair color, use the L'Oréal Paris Feria Wild Ombré in Medium to Dark Brown ($12.99)
