Selena Gomez always has a fresh-faced look because she’s only 19 years old, but you can get this youthful look, too, with these beauty tips, skin care products and cosmetics.
Start with a good moisturizer
The key to fresh, soft skin is hydration. Use a lightweight moisturizer that softens and moisturizes your skin without being oily or heavy. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 helps even out your skin tone and protects your face from sun damage.
From pimples to age spots, we all have flaws. A little concealer and a makeup brush can go a long way in hiding these imperfections. Apply concealer with a light hand; you don’t want it to look cakey or obvious. Check out these six concealing products that work to find the best concealer for you.
Use a dewy foundation
Though matte makeup can look flawless, a dewy face looks younger. You’ll have to experiment with different products to find one that works well with your skin type. Dior’s DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup uses mineral water and SPF 10 to offer beautiful coverage and a fresh, hydrated finish. Even better: Over time, it actually improves your skin’s texture. Also try Chanel Teint Innocence Compact and Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation.
For sheer, dewy color, use a gel blush on your cheeks (or a cream blush for dry skin). Gel blush dries quickly, so start blending right away. Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel and Tarte Natural Cheek Stain are fabulous options.
Brighten up those peepers
Use primer or concealer on your eyelids to provide a smooth base for the color and to help your shadow last. Use a light bronze eye shadow on your lids to the crease, and then a darker shade of brown in the crease itself.
Curl your lashes close to the roots with an eyelash curler. Line your upper lashes with a thin, precise line of black liquid eyeliner, and add a coat or two of lengthening mascara. Define your brows with an eyebrow pencil that matches your natural brow color. To open up and brighten your eyes, apply a little white eyeliner near the inner corner of your eyes. Finish off your fresh-faced look with a dab of neutral or pink lip gloss.
