Selena Gomez’s beauty looks are one for the ‘it’ girl books. What we love most about Selena is the fact that she likes to have fun with makeup. Being a beauty entrepreneur, she keeps blessing our Instagram feed with on-trend makeup looks. Instead of playing safe, the star constantly slays the ‘gram with her stand-out looks, and her latest post is proof.

Last night, Selena took to Instagram to share an eye-catching makeup look and we couldn’t help but hit the save button as we scrolled through our feed. The pink-hued makeup sits vividly on her eyes, and the gradient effect is oh-so-gorgeous. So to help you recreate this screenshot-worthy glam, we’re listing down a complete breakdown of exactly how to nail and cop this uber-glam look.

Step 1: For Luminous Base


Selena loves rocking a natural, dewy base and this makeup look is proof. All you need to do is give your face a 2-minute massage with your go-to moisturizer. Then, apply a layer of Farsali Rose Gold Elixir to ace a luminous base. Alternatively, mixing a few drops of this serum with your foundation or using a serum-infused foundation will also do the trick. Once done with the foundation, apply a creamy concealer to cover any uneven patches, then dab setting powder only on areas where you tend to get oily a tapered brush to retain max glow.

Step 2: For The Perfect Arch


Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and brush them up with a spoolie. The goal here to mimic laminated brows. If you’re blessed with fuller eyebrows, you can just use a clear brow product to set it in place.

Step 3: To Nail The Nude Lids

Smooth on an eye primer to prep those lids for makeup. Paint your lids in a nude eyeshadow hue giving it a slight gradient effect. Then, take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and apply a slightly deeper hue to your crease. Add the same colour on your lower lash line using a precise, tapered brush. 

Step 4: Add Pink Tint To Your Eyes

Next, dab a bright shade of pink to trace a small line in the inner corner of your eyes. Then, smudge the shadow for a smokey effect.

Step 5: For Bronzed Cheeks


Dap a few dots of peach blush on the apple of your cheeks and blend, try to blend all the harsh edges. Then give your cheeks a sun-kissed glow with the help of a bronzer.

Step 6: Highlight!

Apply a liquid highlighter on the high point of your face including your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose.

Step 7: To Nail A Fuller Flutter

Curl your lashes and coat them with a volumizing mascara. Alternatively, you can also go for falsies of your choice.

Step 8: Line Those Lips

To ace the look, all you need is a very light pink-hued lip liner. If you’re exacting, we recommend lining your lips using this nude pink shade.

Step 9: To Rock That Ombre Pout

Then, fill in your lips with a lighter nude shade and coat it with a lip-plumping gloss to max out its effect. Finally, tame those flyaways and tie your hair up into a ponytail for the final touch.
