CALLING ALL SELENA GOMEZ’s Lover to come forward! Yesss… the title said it, I am back with another Makeup Collaboration! This month, the theme is Celebrity Inspired Look. Here, I am taking the western celebrity category, and as you all know, I am chosing Selena Gomez as my inspiration.
Selena Gomez’s Style
From her time in Disney up to now, Selena has been one of my favorite style icon. Her style is always inspiring. From Natural Look to punk street style; Classic Holywood or Glamour Holywood style, you name it; Selena has tried most of them.
In 2007, the 15 years old Selena Gomez attended the Premiere of High School Musical 2 with just very little makeup – just a little Mascara and brown eyeliner. Well, she was still very young to wear heaps of makeup. So, she kept it natural and fresh. A year later, in 2008, she added one more item into her makeup routine, a lip gloss. Whatever the looks, Glossy Lips became her trademark for a year.
2010 – 2017
Starting from 2010 onwards, Selena Gomez has three trademark styles that she rocks up till now. Only occasionally she wears other styles depending on the event. The first looks that Selena Gomez often pulls is Smokey Eyes. In fact, we can say that this is her go-to-look. Sometimes she also adds wings to the eyes to make it more dramatic.
Second, Selena Gomez is also often caught rocking a smudged out black eyeliner look, which framed her eyes beautifully. This trick is very simple; yet, it makes her looks punk and edgy, especially in this picture. I think the curls compliment the look very well.
Third is Sleek Neutral Look. This look is my favorite. Personally, this is Selena Gomez’s best look ever. Here, she looks more grown up, indeed. However, this clean and fresh look lets Selena Gomez’s charm shines. The absence of smokey eyes, smudge black eyeliner, wing liner, and tan skin is a big prove that you don’t actually need heaps of makeup to shine. Makeup exists to help us enhance our good features, not to hide who we really are.
Selena Gomez Inspired Look
I was initially wanted to do the third look, which is the Sleek Natural Look. However, last month I just recreated Kate Middleton’s Look, which is similar with the third look. Hence, I decided to go with the second look, which was the Smudge Look.
To be honest, this look is so not me. It’s not my style. I am the natural type girl. Natural or Neutral look has been my go-to-makeup, even when I pulled smokey eyes look. So, instead of using the usual dark-glam-shades like blue, black, and silver; I used the neutral and natural shades like taupe, gold, bronze, copper, brown, and beige. Hence, doing this look was really a challenge for me to get out of my comfort zone.
The biggest challenge has been to get myself felt comfortable with the look. It took me sometimes to get a good picture with the right expression for this post. I tended to go with the nice-sweet girl smiling on the camera; meanwhile, Selena Gomez’s smudge look was supposed to deliver a punk and edgy look with strong character. In short, I took about two hundred pictures of myself, I finale managed to get it. Not yet perfect, but I started to understand this Style better.
