Selena Gomez wowed in her metallic Reem Acra gown at the VMAs. No easy feat considering, she was in a sea of outrageous outfits, including one real meat dress! Instead of going for shock value, she went the glamorous route and looked gorgeous.
Selena told us she matched her makeup to her embellished dress and wanted the look to be simple and elegant. Mission accomplished. Her makeup was created with the help of Makeup Artist Karan Mitchell for NYX Cosmetics. Karan kept Serena's makeup fresh and cool, but added a touch of color to her eyes and lips. Here is how you can get the look yourself:
EYES Karan started with NYX Concealer Jar in Fair as a base on the lid and then added a shade of the face highlighter/luminizer 'Highlight' and blended from the crease up to the brow. She then applied the highly pigmented sapphire blue shade from NYX Cosmetics Trio Eye Shadow in Aquamarine on the lids, as well as slightly above the crease. Karan then blended the deep blue in the I Dream of Antigua NYX Cosmetics 5 Color Eye Shadow Palette on the outside corners of her lids. Over that Karan lined the entire eye with Magic Khol Eye Liner Pencil by Givenchy. Two coats of NYX professional mascara in Black finished the look.
LIPS The lip look was finished with NYX Cosmetics Lipstick shade #174 Nude and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in #104 Sweet Heart for that soft fresh nude lip look!
FACE Karan created a fresh faced healthy glow for Selena by using NYX Cosmetics Tango with Bronzing Stix #2 in Merengue Flush. This was applied to the apples of her cheeks and created a flawless glow.
