When Selena Gomez gave her heartfelt speech during the 2016 American Music Awards, her self-confidence sparkled not just through her words, but through her skin. That evening, it was up to makeup artist Hung Vanngo to make sure that Selena's beauty style was just as radiant as she was. And he did an impeccable job.
"Today Selena looked so happy and vibrant; I really wanted to keep the makeup more minimal and let that shine through. We decided to do something timeless and soft," Vanngo stated through a press release.
He revealed that Selena has "beautiful skin," so he barely needed to conceal or use foundation. Much of her glow came courtesy of Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick in Blush N°22 ($45), a luminous coral cream blush.
For her supersubtle smoky eye, Vanngo used a blend of taupe shades to create soft definition, relying on Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Pomme de Pin ($33). He traced the gray-brown hue along her lower and upper lash lines then blended the pencil into the crease to sculpt her upper lid.
To finish the look, he added generous layers of lip balm, then applied Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pensive ($37), a creamy beige, for a plush neutral pout. The finished masterpiece was youthful and dewy, spotlighting Selena's natural beauty. Read on to see the stunning look from every angle.
