Red Carpet Glam: Selena Gomez at the Grammy Awards

Selena Gomez at the Grammy Awards by Celebrity Makeup Artist Karan Mitchell

The inspiration for Selena's makeup was to compliment the sensual champagne shade of her J.Mendel dress with a soft focus. I started with Selena's eyes.

I first lined her upper and lower lashline with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast eyeliner in Brown Blaze. I love how the liquid-like pencil blends so easily and that you can easily control its intensity. Using a medium eyeshadow brush I blended the light shade from the COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire on the entire eyelid up to the eyebrow. I then took the darker shade,  and with a smaller eyeshadow brush, I blended the color above and below the eye as well as into the crease of the eyelid. I then used the COVERGIRL Eye Enhancers Eyeshadow in Brown Smolder on the outside corners of her upper eyelids to create more dimension and drew a thin line with a slight wing to the outer edges on the upper lash line using COVERGIRL LineExact Liquid liner in Very Black. I finished her eyes with two coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara in Black.

For her skin, I used COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation to give her a flawless finish. To highlight the t-zone and highlight under the eyes I used the COVERGIRL CG Smoothers Concealer in medium. To set the base I used COVERGIRL TruBlend Pressed Powder in #2 Translucent Light with a soft brush. I then applied to the apples of the cheeks COVERGIRL Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach. I finished her look with COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in the bright gorgeous shade of Siren.
