Get the look: Alesha Dixon's vampy nails and red pout

Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon always nails it on the beauty front - and her National Television Awards' look was no exception.

Opting for a classic LBD, the star made sure her make-up was red carpet-worthy by teaming her frock with sculpted cheeks, groomed brows and mega fluttery lashes.

Alesha also added a splash of colour by sporting deep wine talons and cherry lips. She uploaded a snap to Instagram to prove it, along with the caption "Vampy Glam for NTA!".

Vampy nails are one of our go-to hues for a night out, especially during the colder months. They'll go with any evening look and are a fab, effortless way to glam up nails.

Fancy copying Alesha's mani? We love Essie's deep and vampy Bourdeaux (£7.99), which delivers a lovely rich and glossy hue to talons.

To get your nails just like Alesha's, file them in a long, painted shape. Then slick on a protecting base coat – try L'Oréal's Paris 2-in-1 Manicure Top & Base Coat (£5.99) – before applying two coats of your vampy shade. For a professional long-lasting finish, you can then add on another layer of L'Oréal's 2-in-1 polish.

We were pretty taken with the singer's velvety matte red pout, too. To get your lips just like Alesha's try Bourjois' Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Personne Ne Rouge 1 (£8.99). this fabulous lacquer gives smackers a bold and high-pigmented colour, it also stays put for ages and Laura Whitmore is a fan too!

Or if you fancy a traditional lipstick, you can't beat MAC's Russian Red (£15.50) – just whack on some moisturising lip balm before slicking it on.

Finish off a touch of foundation and a few coatings of mascara and you're ready to go.

Unfortunately though, we don't think our weekend plans will be as glam as Alesha's glitzy NTAs night out. Boo!
