“With red carpet makeup, one of our concerns is getting the shine in the right places,” she explains. “You want to ensure that even if you’re making a glowing complexion, you keep the center of the face where you get oily, matte.” That way, you can build the radiance in other areas of the face. “It’s funny how these little tweaks to your makeup take it from every day to looking really professional and polished,” she continues.
The rest of Gomez’s makeup hinged on simple touches: softly defined brows, swishes of champagne and rich brown eyeshadows across the lids, a touch of liner, and buffed bronze to achieve healthy-looking skin. Lips were kept in the same bronzed, caramel color family through Rare Beauty’s lip liner in shade Talented beneath a peach-hued lipstick in Humble, and a bit of gloss accentuated her pout.
Furthering Gomez’s chic makeup moment was a voluminous side-swept bun crafted by hairstylist Marissa Marino. There was nary a hair out of place, thanks to Moroccanoil stylers. “We wanted something up and sleek to complement the high neckline on her white Celine gown while still having some volume in the front for a retro feel,” says Marino of their inspiration. Celebrity makeup artist Tom Bachik accompanied Gomez’s emerald green accents with a matching jewel-toned mani achieved through a custom cocktail of OPI shades.
Overall, Gomez’s look was a stunning reflection of the natural ease she channels into Rare Beauty as a beauty brand, which allows anyone, anywhere, to elevate their makeup game seamlessly.
