Selena’s Beauty How-To
Brunette beauty Selena Gomez will demonstrate her acting chops when her new flick Spring Breakers premieres at TIFF today, and you can demonstrate your own Selena-esque beauty look with our simple makeup how-to. We’re always enamoured with Selena’s go-to makeup look, complete with dewy skin and softly smoky doe-eyes. The triple threat Selena knows that light coverage best brings out her delicate features and dark eyes, and this makeup look just happens to work for everyone.
Like Selena, start with a light brushing of light golden bronzer atop naked skin to achieve her dewy, iridescent skin. Choosing a bronzer only a shade or two darker than your skin is important for an autumn-appropriate, never orange base. The next important product for Selena’s dewy flush is a pale pink highlighter, like Juice Beauty’s, on the top of cheekbones.
Sweet Gaze And Pout
For Selena’s softly seductive gaze, begin with a soft black eyeliner pencil like Stila’s Smudge Stick in Stingray. Starting with the outer corner of the top and bottom lashlines, smudge a thin line of black pencil, creating the illusion of a thicker lashline without any stark lines. Start shadow with a soft cocoa brown on lower lids, then work up to a faint rose and finishwith a shimmery vanilla shadow under the browbone, being sure to use a feather light touch of shadow for Selena’s “wash of colour” look. This eye is more airy than smoky, and works great for day or night! Finally, complete the movie star glam look right in time for Selena’s big TIFF debut with a pale, petal-pink pout courtesy of a moisture-infused lipstick and a tiny dab of sheer gloss.
