2011 Teen Choice Awards Beauty Breakdown: Selena Gomez

At the 2011 Teen Choice Awards last night, makeup artist Karan Mitchell for Maybelline New York gave Selena Gomez a gorgeous, glowy look to compliment her champagne-colored Erin Featherston dress. Breakdown after the jump!


Skin
Karan created a fresh-faced healthy glow for Selena, using Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation in Naturel as a base. To set the base, she used Maybelline FIT ME Pressed Powder in Pure Beige. On the contour of the cheeks, she used Maybelline FIT ME Bronzer in Light Bronze. Next, Karan applied a peachy bronze cream blush to the apples of her cheeks to create a flawless bronzed glow.

Eyes
Karan started with Selena’s eyes, using Maybelline EXPERTWEAR Eyeshadow Quad in Chai Latte, using the soft shimmery shade of the palette on her lids up to the crease. She then used the lightest gold hue from the Maybelline EYE STUDIO Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow in Caffeine Rush on the inside corners and as a highlight under her brow bone. Next, she used the deepest warm copper shade from the Maybelline EXPERTWEAR Eyeshadow Quad in Chai Latte on the outside corners of the eye, accentuating Selena’s beautiful brown eyes. Karan lined the upper and lower lash lines with Maybelline EYE STUDIO Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Charcoal. Karan then topped off the look with three coats of Maybelline Limited Edition Vivienne Tam Great Lash Mascara in Very Black.

Lips
The lip look was finished with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Pink Satin – the perfect product to achieve Selena’s soft, fresh, feminine pout.

Maybelline New York is available at drugstores nationwide and drugstore.com.
