Selena’s make-up for the 2015 Met Ball was executed by make-up artist and photographer Jake Bailey, who said :
“Selena’s slinky Vera Wang dress called for an elegant look with a pop of color. I kept her skin fresh and relatively matte for a porcelain effect, and elongated her eyes with a sharp black line and lots of lashes and mascara. I finished the look with a classic matte red lip,”
First, Jake gently massaged Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide™ Moisture Cream $50 into the skin to immediately brighten skin and help smooth the appearance of pores.
Then he softened Selena’s lips with a dab of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream $21.
Jake perfected Selena’s skin by buffing a small amount of the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Makeup $38.50 on her face and neck with a small kabuki brush.
Using Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Honey $24, he warmed up her cheeks, and then set her complexion with a light dusting of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Skin Smoothing Loose Powder $30.
Jake then used Nars Contour Palette $59 under the cheekbones to give them extra definition
and finished with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Tearose $26.50.
Jake lined Selena’s upper lash line with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner in Black Velvet $22, creating a sharp angle to give the look of a liquid liner.
The eye make-up was made to shimmer and pop by dusting Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Smolder $18.50 onto her eyelids.
Jake applied a strip of natural mink eyelashes and then applied smudge-proof Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Maximum Volume Mascara in Black $20. He also applied two coats to her bottom lashes for added depth.
He then filled in her brows using Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Natural Eye Brow Pencil in Natural Beige $22 and set them in place with Anastasia Brow Gel $22.
To add a pop of color and complement her modern China doll look, Jake lined the lip with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Precision Glide Lip Liner in Red Door Red $21 and finished with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Matte Bold Red.
