15 of Selena Gomez's All-Time Best Makeup Looks

Updated 05/01/19

What we love most about Selena Gomez's non-boring beauty looks is that you can tell she likes to have fun. Instead of playing it safe, she consistently slays the stage and the red carpet with bursts of color on her lids, a bold lip, or even both, making her screenshot-worthy glam something everyone always wants to re-create. We've dubbed her a hair chameleon before, and now we're calling her a makeup chameleon because her ever-changing looks are so stunning.

Celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo has been the man behind some of her most iconic makeup moments for years. His Instagram is a color palette of perfection, showcasing versatile makeup looks Gomez has worn over the years. We enjoyed scrolling through and marveling at his next-level skills. This was not easy, but we narrowed it down to her 15 best makeup looks of all time. Feast your eyes on this glam.

It goes without saying that the 2017 Met Gala will forever be an iconic makeup moment for Gomez. Not much else can touch this hot-pink eye shadow. It sits so vividly on her eyes, and the gradient effect is gorgeous. 

Selena is naturally stunning, and this no-makeup makeup look enhances her God-given features so beautifully. Vanngo kept her makeup soft and completed the look with this peachy-nude lipstick. Try Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick ($26) in Meringue for a similar shade. 

These shimmery nude and chocolaty hues pair so well with Gomez's platinum bob. Keeping your smoky eye and lips in the brown color family is always a good makeup move. 

Halloween always brings out bold beauty looks. Gomez went for a charcoal-colored smoky eye and this brick-red lip—so good. This stand-out eye-and-lip duo breaks all the rules in the best way. It's proof you don't have to tone down your eyes for your lips (and vice versa). Fall is officially here, so reach for a red like MAC Sin ($19) if you want the same vibe. 

Gomez's intergalactic purple eye shadow looks so dreamy for the 2017 InStyle Awards. Vanngo smoked-out the outer corners of each eye to add dimension and rounded out the look with a soft nude gloss. 

Although it's impossible to choose our favorite thing about this glam—wet waves included—this red lip looks absolutely killer on Gomez. When you wear such a vivid lip, you don't need much else. To keep up the edge, Vanngo added a winged liner for the ultimate cool-girl effect.  

Last year at the Business of Fashion 500 Gala, Gomez donned a sultry dark lip. In lieu of fall foliage, allow this moody lip to inspire you to go a little deeper and bolder with your lip choices these days. My all-time favorite vampy shade that's always in rotation and looks exactly like this is Nars Train Bleu ($27). 

These warm coral and apricot tones work so well together with a subtle smoky eye. Gomez's skin looks ultra glowy. 

These lashes, though, are everything. Vanngo wrote in his caption that he was inspired by the '60s, and I immediately thought of Twiggy. Try drugstore gem mascara L'Oréal Voluminous Volume Building Curved Brush Mascara ($8) for a doe-eyed look. 

Gomez's red lip moments always win. This red leans on the brighter side with pink and orange undertones. Also, it wouldn't be right to not acknowledge this glossy lob. So good

Apparently, Vanngo did this killer cat eye in 15 minutes just in time for Gomez to attend The Weeknd's concert. We call those blessed hands. 

A shimmery, champagne-gold eye is a timeless beauty look. We know for a fact that on tour, she's worn the gold-copper shade Amber ($12) from Anastasia Beverly Hills, which looks very similar.  

Monochromatic makeup for the win! Gomez's tangerine-themed look she wore to the premiere of 13 Reasons Why broke the internet for good reason. There have been so many beautiful renditions of this look by YouTubers and makeup enthusiasts because it was definitely one to remember. 

This is an amplified no-makeup makeup look we're just as into. Adding soft-brown tones draws just enough attention to your eyes. 

This cover shoot look had to be in the rankings because it's hard to overlook a liner that sharp. To get yours to look just as precise, try Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($20).
