Watch Selena Gomez Do Her Going-Out Makeup Routine, From Liquid Liner to Lip Gloss

Selena Gomez on going-out makeup, her drugstore trick for battling breakouts, and why she’s not done with being blonde just yet.

Selena Gomez is back. On set for her second Vogue Beauty Secrets video, the 29-year-old superstar, who can be seen alongside Steve Martin in the new Hulu comedy series Only Murders in the Building, is setting the stage for her getting-ready routine with a scented candle and a drop of a calming patchouli essential oil dotted onto her wrists. “It gets me in the mood,” she explains, as she caters to her complexion with cucumber eye patches and a resurfacing serum from Tatcha.

“The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve realized that less is more and that it makes me feel sexier when I don’t have as much makeup on,” says Gomez. Nevertheless, the Rare Beauty founder has plans this evening—and an amped-up above-the-neck equation, achieved with a handful of products from her very own line, is in order. “When I go out, this is the time when I can try new things. I can use my eyeliner, my colors, sparkles… It’s just fun to add a little bit of that,” she continues, reaching for a brow-defining powder, an eye-popping rose-hued liquid shadow, and an inky liner, which she uses to achieve her signature feline flick. Of course, as she puts it, no statement look is complete without a generous swipe of mascara. 

Even Gomez, however, is not immune to the occasional makeup mistake: At the 2018 Met Gala—moments before which she’d tried out a new self-tanner—“I look at a photo of myself, and I’m completely orange,” she recalls, breaking into a laugh. “My first reaction was just to get the hell out of there!” Now, she employs a very light hand when sweeping on a coat of bronzer, which lends her sun-sensitive skin (a side effect, she notes, of lupus) a golden touch. A liquid luminizer (in her go-to shade, Mesmerize) and a mauve-colored lip gloss add a radiant finishing touch. “Alright, guys, that is my look for the night,” she says, after spritzing on a setting mist. “I will see you guys for the next Beauty Secrets.” In other words? Stay tuned.
