Selena Gomez has no shortage of fresh-faced days. Always bright-eyed and glowing, the starlet spills all the secrets that make up her beauty regimen — in her own words, as told to Yahoo.com.
Perhaps now, we too can get that Hollywood glow?
I like to have a good morning regimen. I use my Clarisonic in the shower with the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Skin Peel Wash. I do that maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts. Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster on your cheekbones and around your eyes helps make you look alive. But what’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy – if you get dark circles. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb. The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too—plus they work!
When I don’t get a chance to do the whole routine in the morning, it really bums me out. It kind of affects your mood when you don’t take enough time to pamper yourself. When I’m home, I like to wake up at least an hour before I need to just to have coffee and not have makeup on.
Another thing I learned from my nanna and my mom is that less is more—you never want to look like you’re caked in anything. Most of the time I like to look matte, unless I’m on a red carpet—then it’s all about the Eva Mendes look with that glow. I use Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation in Golden Beige every day. I’ll follow that with MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Medium, Instant Brow Pencil from Benefit in Medium to Dark, Gimme Brow from Benefit in Medium/Deep, then The Body Shop Baked to Last Bronzer in Golden Bronze. That’s the look!
If I want to be really bronzed, I use Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum all over my face. It has a little tint in it, but it doesn’t smell for days like self-tanner does. And because it’s a serum, it doesn’t make me break out. I never wear lipstick or lip gloss in my normal everyday life, but I do put the Fresh Sugar Lip Serum on morning and night to keep my lips hydrated. If I’m going into a meeting or something, I do the Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer as a pretty top-coat over a little Nars Lip Pencil.
The Victoria’s Secret Deluxe Eye Palette in Screen Siren [ed note: discontinued] is my favorite for eyes. When I do go out, it adds a little bit of sheen, I use the black shade as liner, and then the shadow in the crease, and that’s all I need. And I love the Urban Decay Naked Palette, too. Oh, and I have lash extensions because it makes everything easier—you just don’t have to worry about them.

All this hair isn’t mine—I have extensions as a sort of safety net when I’m on stage. It’s really nice to have the long mermaid hair to move around while you’re being blasted with the fans up there. Plus it just makes me feel pretty. They’re all glued in with a protein bond and I use this specific brush that gets into the root when you’re brushing it out. U Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner are also really good for them. If they get tangled, I spray some of the Unite 7Seconds Condition Leave-In Detangler in my hair, and in literally one second of brushing the tangles go away.
I’ve also gotten good at hiding all of my baby hairs. When my hair is natural, I have that Latina feel—it gets wavy and frizzy and I’ve had to learn to love it. You obviously always want what you don’t have, which is why I wear it straight so often. Recently though, I’ve been trying to wear it beachy because that’s a little more natural to who I am. The Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Hairspray or the Dry Texturizing Spray are really good for that. Oribe is good for everything.
