She’s shown up on thered carpetmany times with awesome beauty looks, mastering everything from casual waves and luminous skin to dramatic cat eyes and bold lipstick. Since we never cease to be inspired by her beauty, we decided to mine YouTube for the best tutorials on conquering the Selena look.
A little word to the wise? Everything in moderation. If you’re looking for prom inspiration, make sure you consider your dress before getting excited about your makeup look. (For example, violet smoky eyes might not be the best idea with a purple ensemble. Please wear wisely.)
