Selena Gomez’s Glowy Met Gala Makeup Is Actually Super Easy to Re-Create

Selena Gomez wore a sexy-yet-edgy Louis Vuitton number to this year’s Met Gala (complete with lace-up platform boots), and while we were totally obsessed with it, we also couldn’t keep our eyes off her fresh-faced makeup. The “Hands to Myself” singer rocked a natural, glowy look (with a hint of boldness in the form of subtly winged eyeliner). And it could honestly be an everyday thing.

Makeup artist Hung Vanngo partnered with Kiehl’s to create the look on Selena, first prepping her skin with the Turmeric Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque ($32), then dabbing a few drops of the brand’s Daily Reviving Concentrate ($46) to the high points of her face for extra dewiness. Since Selena’s skin is already flawless, he went in with just a touch of foundation and concealer as a base, setting it all with a light reflecting powder.

To give her even more of a camera-ready glow, Hung dusted a highlight over her nose, forehead, and chin, adding a touch of bronzer to the hairline and jaw, and then dusting a soft pink blush on her cheekbones. He kept her lips super simple and effortless with a nourishing coat of the Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm ($9) underneath a flesh-toned liner and a coat of CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick in Crème ($7).

And as for that gorgeous wing? No, liquid liner was not involved. Instead, Hung went for thick, blended-out lines of Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner ($20) and a wash of MAC Glitter Reflects Gold ($22) across the lid and lower lash line, creating the edgy touch we loved with individual falsies, two luscious coats of black mascara, and perfectly filled-in brows.

Easy, huh? Keep scrolling to see more pictures of Selena’s look, and then check out what other Met Gala red carpet moments you might’ve missed.
