A smokey eye is my go-to for a night on the town, out with friends or my husband. You guys told me that Selena Gomez, 23, had the best beauty look at the 2015 VMAs, so here is the exact look for you to re-create her sexy smokey eye tonight and in the future
Selena’s makeup artist Jake Bailey told HollywoodLife.com:
“I kept Selena’s makeup simple and sophisticated to not compete with her elegant Calvin Klein gown. I prepped her skin with Ren “Ever Calm” day cream and a few drops of Ren Instant Firming Beauty Shot Serum to create a smooth canvas. To even out her skin tone I used COVERGIRL Clean Liquid Foundation and then applied a coral cream blush from Chanel to warm up her complexion. I set the foundation and cream blush with a light dusting of Laura Mercier loose powder and added a touch of the Nars Gienah Contour Blush onto the hollows of her cheeks to accentuate her cheekbones,” Jake said.
“I finished off the look with a thin application of COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Coffee Crave for the perfect nude pout!”While I let the product absorb I began working on the eyes, using COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx to define her upper lash line. I then used Nars Velvet Shadow Stick in Shimmering Peacock all over her lids and lower lash lines and also blended it out with a small soft shadow brush for a smokey affect,” Jake revealed. “I finished the sultry eyes look with a coat of COVERGIRL The Super Sizer Mascara by LashBlast to create dramatic, show-stopping lashes.”
