Steal the Look: Selena Gomez at the VMAs

selenaThere was a lot of drama at last night’s VMAs, but the best kind was Selena Gomez’s sultry eyes.

COVERGIRL makeup artist Jake Bailey shared how he created her look:  “I kept Selena’s makeup simple and sophisticated to not compete with her elegant Calvin Klein gown,” says Bailey, who began by prepping her skin with Ren “Ever Calm” day cream and a few drops of Ren Instant Firming Beauty Shot Serum to create a smooth canvas.

“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. I finished the sultry eyes look with a coat of COVERGIRL The Super Sizer Mascara by LashBlast to create dramatic, show-stopping lashes,” says Bailey. “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.”

Bailey finished off the look with a thin application of COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Coffee Crave — “for the perfect nude pout!” – he says.
