Happy Birthday Selena! These Are Our All Time Fave Looks From The Pop Princess…

Happy Birthday Selena! These Are Our All Time Fave Looks From The Pop Princess…

“Slow down” Glossies, because today is Selena Gomez’s birthday!

And as the founder and creator of Rare Beauty (…we’re still patiently waiting for the UK release!), the 2017 Billboard Woman of the Year and the third most followed woman on Instagram, Selena Gomez has some serious influence!

Our Fave Selena Gomez Looks Of All Time!

On this special day – her 29th! – we wanted to browse through a selection of her gorgeous Insta posts, to work out exactly how we (and her other 244 million followers) can recreate her looks

One of the birthday girl’s most recent photos racked up a massive seven million likes. And I’m not surprised, the photo is stunning! Selena chose to express herself through a striking neon eye look. Neon lime green nails enhance the look too… Together, it’s a vibe!

To recreate this, look no further than the Barry M Hi Vis Collection. Bold and bright – this range has it all. Copy this look by sweeping Barry M Cosmetics Hi Vis Neon Matte Pigment – Fuse on the inner corners of your eyes to match Selena. The fine pigments mean one stroke with your brush and you’re good to go! “And it takes my breath away”.

Barry M Cosmetics Hi Vis Nail Paint – Electric Lime is perfect to recreate Selena’s nails too. Top tip – apply over a white base for the “rare” lime green colour to pop! Two bold looks that match perfectly and minimum effort required to apply.

“When you know it’s meant to be, everything comes naturally.”

A throwback to 2015… Selena blew us away at the most fashionable annual event in the calendar, The Met Ball. And what perfectly finished off her all white look was her eye-catching red lip.

I believe a good red lipstick is the best accessory for an evening look, and for a night out, you’ll want a lipstick that is long-lasting and is packed full of pigment. I say look no further than the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick.

In collaboration with Kate Moss and created with a Black Diamond pigment complex, this lippie lasts up to eight hours and comes with a light-reflecting finish. It’s one of the creamiest lipsticks I’ve ever used! Glossies, it’s under £6 too so it’s an absolute bargain!

Shade ‘My Gorge Red’ is my new BFF. It’s got an intense colour and perfectly balances being both hydrating and matte.

From lipsticks to lip liners, from red to nude, Selena rocks ALL the lip looks incredibly! Sometimes you might want a bold lip, but sometimes – “one half of me wants ya and the other half wants to forget” – you might prefer to opt for a nude, natural look.

In a post from this April, newly blonde Selena shows off her more natural side. And her lips are perfectly sculpted – which we’d say is the sign of an effective lip liner.

Claim this look for yourself by using the MAC Lip Pencil in the infamous shade ‘Spice’. And this product includes all three things I know you Glossies want from a lip liner – for it to be smooth, soft and creamy! But, what I love most about MAC’s Spice is as well as wearing the liner with lipstick, I can also wear it over my entire lip. With over 26 shades to choose from, “my dilemma, is you.”

This July saw Selena embrace her body and post unbelievably gorgeous photos of her collaboration with swimwear shop La’Mariette.

I am loving Selena as a blonde, and if you’re rocking a similar shade, I’d advise you to keep your locks shiny and vibrant using the L’Oréal Professional Serie Expert Blondifier Cool Shampoo. This shampoo will neutralise any unwanted yellow tones and keep your blonde locks fresh, light and hydrated – all thanks to its Violet Brightening Pigments.

Want a clean and oil free feel? Then our Blonde Glossies out there – snap this up!

It’s 2015, Selena has just released her new single Good For You and she is announced as the new face of Pantene. Not a bad year for our Texas born pop princess. I envied her luscious locks in her gorgeous promos. I wanted hair like Selena so badly (to be honest, I still do!).

I know Glossies crave shiny, tangle free hair, and the Pantene Gold Series Leave-In Detangling Tames Frizz Milk will help you achieve just that! Perfect for straight and curly hair, this detangling milk will coat every strand and strengthen stressed-out locks with ease.

My favourite ingredient in hair care is Argan Oil. And in this product it helps hydrate, soften and fight against frizz. An added bonus? This hair milk is also sulphate and dye free, which means even healthier hair for you. The end result? You can do your “hair up real, real nice.”

Are you even a Glossy if you don’t appreciate a good brow? I know we all strive for brow perfection! And that’s exactly what Selena has achieved here in her Insta photo from March this year!

Not only does she have major hat goals, her brow game is on fleek! (Yes I did just say fleek). Here, Selena’s Brows look soft, natural and shaped to perfection. “It’s like a work of art.”

The benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil is exactly the product you need to recreate this masterpiece. You can instantly fill in any gaps in your brows with this custom ‘goof-proof’ pencil, which glides effortlessly helping to enhance and define the shape of your brow! There’ll be no harsh strokes either – this pencil is all about giving you that soft, natural finish. Enough to make you say “I’m just beautiful me.”

One of my favourite music collaborations of 2020 was Selena and Blackpink. Their hit ‘Ice Cream’ was my summer jam!

The music video got 79 million views in 24 hours, but when Selena posted a photo from the video, she got a fair few million likes herself. However, what stood out to me from this pic was her flawless eye makeup. The winged liner and her mascara make her eyes POP!

Maybelline has two perfect products to make you “look so good yeah, look so sweet.” For lengthy and full lashes, get on the TikTok hype and purchase Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara. Bamboo extract and lengthening fibres have made a great collaboration here too, offering maximum impact with a lightweight feel. This is my favourite mascara, ever… Every lash is coated individually. No clumpiness, just ultimate length…for under £10! (Team Glossy loved it so much too that we even had a Sky High Mascara review on the blog!)

The Maybelline Hyper Precise All Day Liner – Matte Black works well with this mascara too. Its ultra-thin brush creates razor-sharp wings, plus it’s waterproof and long-lasting. You can purchase both products together for less than £16. Go on “baby, you deserve a treat.”

My all time favourite Insta pic from our birthday gal Selena is a photo from 2016. We see Selena with bright red nails, a Coke bottle in hand and sought-after hair goals!

We all strive to have voluminous hair, and Glossies, I know “what it takes to make you smile”… Affordable hair care. For gorgeous locks, the Giovanni GNV 2chic U-Volume Styling Mousse will soon be your new best friend! This mousse aids in styling hair, defining waves and leaves hair thick with a luscious appearance. Together, tangerine and papaya butter nourish the hair. And for under £6, it’s a steal! I know, “tell me something I don’t know.”

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
