Selena's Colorful Cat-Eye

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I think Selena Gomez always looks wonderful, but she tends to play it safe with her makeup most of the time. A remnant from her days as a Disney star? Perhaps. That's why I was so pleasantly surprised to see this cat-eye look from her at a red carpet event last week. It's got a gorgeous, summery pop of pink shadow, a very unexpected pairing with such a dark liner. Plus, she matched her lipstick to her eyeshadow! Any beauty "rules" about being too matchy-matchy with your makeup are definitely old news! I love how her lipstick brings the look full-circle. I'm absolutely in love!

Want to try this look? Prep your lid with your favorite e.l.f. primer. The Essential Eyelid Primer and Mineral Eyeshadow Primer are all great go-tos. Now, start with a pale pink shadow. My personal picks would be any of the lovely pink shades in all four versions of our Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette. I love their soft, shimmer finish. California has been my favorite lately, it's so summery! You can also use one of our single Studio Baked Eyeshadows in Pixie for a similar color. Our Mineral Eyeshadow in Sweet or Glamorous will also give you a similar color, just in a different formula. You can also try our Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in Birthday Cake for a mess-free formula, but the color is a bit brighter than what Selena's wearing. (Which is totally fun too!) To get this smoky eyeliner like Selena's, your best bet is the Studio Kohl Eyeliner. It comes with an attached smudge sponge to effortlessly smolder. Simply apply along your top lashline (A bit thicker of a line works best!) and smudge out and upward towards the browbone, like you would a sleeker cat-eye. Finish it off with a lipcolor to match your eyeshadow! We like our Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Pink Minx, Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink, or Essential Lipstick in Seductive.

What do you think of Selena's colorful cat-eye?

I don't like it. I think the look ages her. The picture for this article isn't bad, but the one of her in the email--ugh. I think it makes her eyes look much smaller and squinty. And it just looks like a smokey eye to me, not a cat eye. Maybe it looks good on stage, but so many of these smokey/cat eyes just look like they were punched in the eyes to me.
