Selena Gomez’s Makeup Bag Starts With a Clean Moisturized Face
Selena Gomez starts off her makeup selection with an emphasis on the importance of moisturizing, a lesson her grandma taught her when she was young.
“Even though my nanna is only in her late 50s now, she’s taken care of her skin for as long as I can remember. She would always smell so good because she’d wash her face with Oil of Olay, and then she would moisturize, and she would just lie down and go to sleep.”
She added, “So when my mom hit about 21, my nanna started giving her old Olay products, sort of like hand-me-downs—even when my mom tries new things, she always goes back to Olay. And it must work because my mom has the most incredible, beautiful skin.”
Selena also makes it clear that a good cleanser is essential, as high-quality cleanser makes a huge difference
“When I don’t get a chance to do the whole routine in the morning, it really bums me out. It kind of affects your mood when you don’t take enough time to pamper yourself”
This is why Selena uses Clarisonic and Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Peel Wash, “I use this maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts”.
When it comes to dark circles, Selena likes to use First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy, “If you get dark circles, it’s the shit. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb.”
