Selena Gomez is a role model and icon for many, but her everyday makeup routine is what I fangirl about. The Only Murders In The Building star shared her 10-minute makeup routine in a video tutorial and I am obsessed with how quick and dreamy it is.
Here’s a lowdown on Selena’s entire everyday makeup routine, with the exact products and all.
A Clean Start With Just A Mist
Selena said that she begins her makeup routine with freshly cleansed skin and then she likes to spritz on her Rare Beauty Always An Optimist 4-In-1 Mist to moisten her face.
It is a bi-phase mist that she uses which has a mixture of water and natural oils to get her skin glowing. Since the Rare Beauty product isn’t available in India, the PIXI Glow Mist works as a great alternative.
Her Foundation Dot System
The singer-songwriter has a dot system for applying foundation. She dots the Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation all over her face and then gently blends it with a foundation brush using circular motions.
Her foundation is infused with skincare and gives a natural, skin-like finish. The MyGlamm Super Serum Foundation delivers similar results.
Selena’s Concealer Tips
The star confessed that she has dark circles and dots the Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer on her under eye areas and on the crease of her nostrils and chin. She then recommends patting in with a concealer brush to blend instead of swiping.
Patting to blend ensures the coverage stays put and does not get wiped away. I love using The Body Shop Vitamin C Concealer as it never looks cakey.
The Blush Hack Her MUA Taught Her
Celebrity MUA Hung Vango taught Selena to apply blush on her cheekbones and then blend it upwards for a lifted effect.
Selena reaches for the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in the shade Bliss, which is a pretty nude pink colour. The MyGlamm LIT Lip & Cheek Rouge – Peach Play looks almost the same as Selena’s go-to blush.
She Loves A Rosy Glow
Selena loves using the Rare Beauty Positive Light Liquid Luminizer in the shade Enchant which is a soft pink highlighter. She dabs it above her cheekbones, on the bridge of her nose, and on her Cupid’s bow.
I too am a fan of the MyGlamm Spotlight Illuminating Liquid – Rouge which also has a rosy tint to it.
How Selena Applies Bronzer
Her go-to bronzer happens to be the cult-favourite Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer and she uses a fan brush to apply it to her temples, sides of her nose, cheekbones, and jawline.
She uses the bronzer to softly sculpt her visage. The Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer is also a great product and it’s available in India.
Doubling Down On Brow Product
Even Selena loves a strong brow look and for that she achieves with a brow pencil followed by a brow gel. The exact product she uses is the Rare Beauty Brow Harmony Pencil And Gel in shade cool brown.
My favourite eyebrow grooming product to get bold brows is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel – Soft Brown.
Defined Eyes In A Jiffy
For her effortless brown smokey eye makeup look, Selena smears the Laura Mercier caviar stick eyeshadow- cocoa on her lash lines and then blends it with an eyeshadow brush.
The stars says that it gives her lashes a beautiful brown shadow. The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick – Bark is an excellent alternative to achieve this look.
Tinted Lip Balms FTW
For the lips, Selena prefers to use a tinted lip balm in a peach shade instead of lipstick. The exact lip product she uses is the Rare Beauty With Gratitude, Dewy Lip Balm in the shade Praise which is a muted peach colour.
I love the colour payoff and finish of her lip product and use the MyGlamm LIT – PH Lip Balm – Bite Me to get a pink pout like hers.
A Final Spritz Of Mist
Selena begins and ends her makeup routine with the same product which is the Rare Beauty Always An Optimist 4-In-1 Mist. This step helps make her makeup look fresh and glowy.
I also love using a face mist to set my makeup and I prefer the St. Botanica Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Boost Face Mist.
I’m going to put Selena’s 10-minute routine to the test next time I step out!
