Who hasn’t looked at Selena Gomez and wanted to recreate the look? You don’t need a team of stylists to do it either. All you need are the right tools, colors, and, of course, a good brand that commands the ultimate result.
How does she do it
Selena is a natural beauty, and any look she goes for enhances her features. She’s rocked shocking pink eye shadow at the Met Gala and had a blonde phase which created a stir. We love these looks, but today we want to try and recreate her more natural look. We know that signature light, clean look, but where do we go from here?
With her chocolate brown hair and deep brown eyes, a simple look with few color shocks work well. You can, of course, achieve this at home with natural makeup, but the result we need is that picture perfect, soft, smooth result. The best way to accomplish this is by using airbrush makeup. Your end result is not only even and bump free, but will last far longer than any other method. Airbrush makeup has been around a while, but it has evolved.
How to choose your airbrush makeup
With so many airbrush kits to choose from you, of course, want the best. Rock Candy Beauty is renowned for its professional finish and its durability. It swift ascension in popularity is down to its vegan and cruelty-free credentials. Using animal-friendly products, you are not only helping the planet, but you are sticking to your vegan principles.

There are, of course, obvious benefits to using vegan makeup. That includes the purity of its ingredients. Knowing that the ingredients are mineral and natural will not only deliver a better result but will also feed your skin and protect it from free radicals and pollution in the atmosphere. You are not only making yourself more beautiful, but you are treating your skin well too. After using Rock Candy Beauty, you will notice a difference.
Get your base right
Rock Candy Beauty has developed their 4K foundation range, which is an ideal starting point for the Selena look. You will find your perfect shade, as not only do they have 16 shades to choose from, but you can custom blend in the pot. Using the spray is effortless to direct your base and make a customizable coverage that will help you get that perfect result. 4k Foundation not only helps your skin heal and protect it from the outside, but it also helps to balance your skin tone while promoting cell renewal.
Remember with airbrushing you can layer up, but don’t put more than four layers.
Eyes and eyebrows.
Selena is known for her natural brows and a smokey eye. You will need a fuller brow, but it is quite easy to achieve this as long as you don’t overdo it. The key here is full natural brows, so we are avoiding the theatrical diva. Fill and define your arch but keep it simple.
For the smoky eye look, your base as always will ensure a stay put all day result. First, apply your mascara. When you are happy with your coverage, you can then get down to the smokey eye shadow. Start at the far corner of your eye working and layering till you have a subtle but noticeable look. You can remove any overspray using a damp cotton bud.
Get that glow
Rock Candy Beauty has some natural pink blushers that give a healthy glow to the apple of your cheek rather than trying to sculpt. Get your gun and gently build a light but noticeable pink to your cheeks. To recreate that healthy fresh look, smile while you apply so that you pick up on the character of your face.
Don’t forget the all-important lip. As always, we are keeping the look soft and natural, so opt for a peachy nude color. Keep those pearly whites smiling to channel that look effortlessly.
