7 times Selena Gomez nailed her make-up (and how you can do it too)

All hail the great and gorgeous Gomez, proving you can both be an ex-Wizard and still become one of the most beloved style icons on the planet.

(We’ll always sneakily hope Alex Russo will make a comeback ASAP)


Always head to toe in the most gloriously put together outfits, she kills the red carpet, is flawlessly fashionable and has hair that shines fo’ dayz.  And Good For You Selena, I bet you’re thinking “Tell me Something I Don’t Know!”

(we’ll stop.)

Something we’ve got to draw attention to though – her make-up is always ON POINT. LIKE ALL THE TIME.

And we love it.

In celebration of this, we’re taking a look at seven times the ‘Same Old Love sensation looked every bit the style queen that she is – and simple tips you can use to match it.

1. Cheekbones For Miles

@ninezeroone ladies killin it and stuff. Thanks for making me feel cooler than I am. ☺️

With a crackin’ contour matched with a gorgeous highlight, Selena proves that a tight up-do can draw attention to your face when you’re having a great make-up day. Make Up Academy do a corker of a highlighter in ‘Iridescent Gold’ – and it’s only £3! – which can make you look as sleek and sassy as Selena herself.

2. The Dark Lip

Looking sexy with just enough sass, Selena proves that you can match a dark outfit, dark lipstick and just a hint of bright eye-shadow to look elegant and fun. Try MAC’s ‘Media’ lipstick to get the look.

3. The Sultry Cat

My fav opi look from my line ☺️#nailsdidhurdid

So not only has she nailed the cat eye look, but her nails are perfect too?! You too can nail the whole look with Selena’s own OPI line varnish, matched with a dark shadow (Urban Decay’s Blackout is so pigmented – it’s fantastic) brushed deep into the crease of your own lid to create that perfect smokey look.

4. Colour Crazy

Selena doesn’t shy away from bright colours, and why should anyone? Whack on some gorgeously green eyeshadow and liner, (Barry M will always be a great shout) brush it on right up to the brow, and wear with whatever the heck you like. Stand out from the crowd and look sensational.

5. Pretty in Pink

We ADORE Sel’s dark eye contrasting with the baby pink gloss. It says I’m soft as a kitten, but don’t mess with me.

Maybelline’s Baby Lips now comes in ‘Pink Punch’, which leaves your lips ever-so-hydrated with a drizzle of colour. And it’s £3. Ideal, right?

6. Tropical Paradise


Still one of our fave songs ever, Selly in the ‘Come and Get It’ video nailed not only the song and style, but NAILED. THAT. MAKE-UP. The lip colour is one of the most eye-catching products we’ve laid our eyes on – and NYX Matte Lipstick in Daydream will help you get the look.

7. Glossy and Gorgeous

There’s nothing we enjoy more than a lovely gloss that really sparkles, and that’s exactly what Selena has done here. Try L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss for a glossy pout that will make your selfies shine.

Selly’s style is nothing short of incredible – we’ll probably be inspired by it for the next 42 years. Don’t ever stop, Selena!
