And it’s simpler than you’d expect
Ever wondered how Selena Gomez’s eye makeup always looks so flawless? Us too. It’s a good thing then that Selena teamed up with her makeup artist Melissa Murdick to walk us through exactly how to recreate the copper smoky eye from Selena’s Revival tour.
In the short video, uploaded to the Revival tour’s Instagram account, Murdick shows us how to get the look, from eyeshadow to liner, lashes and finishing with brows. Whilst the crux of the tutorial seems pretty simple, Murdick also has some pro tips for those recreating Selena’s eye makeup look, which includes the benefit of applying a darker shadow to the outer corner of the eye and crease to add definition and thickening up your eyeliner from the middle of the eye to the outer corners to elongate the eye shape.
The end result is unsurprisingly stunning but what we took away from the tutorial the most was the ease at which she applies winged eyeliner and false lashes, which quite honestly, put our skills to shame (all we can say is it’s a good thing that magnetic fake eyelashes were invented!).
