Celebrity Beauty: Get Selena Gomez’s Makeup Look at 2013 VMAs!


At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards tonight, Selena Gomez rocked a gorgeous navy Versace gown with sleek hair, a flick of navy eyeliner and a berry lip. Read on for tips from her makeup artist Gita Bass on how she created the look!

1. Start with a fresh canvas. The first step in getting a great make-up look is to start by taking proper care of skin. Moisturize with Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer. It is perfect even for sensitive skin and has no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants that can upset skin.

2. Even out the skintone with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. After moisturizing, foundation will spread easily and stay on longer. Where needed, apply concealer. Gita used Cle de Peau Concealer in Honey on Selena.

3. To match Selena’s navy Versace stunner, Gita created a navy cat eye with Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes in Iridescent Navy Blue 3L to line the eyes and topped them with YSL Volume Effet Faux Cil Mascara.

4. A berry lip added contrast to the rest of the look. Gita used Tom Ford Lip Color in Black Orchid.
