We’re tired of celebs dishing out “wash your face” and “drink water” as their number-one beauty tip. Umm, we want the good stuff, please? But Selena Gomez seems to have understood the assignment. Recently, she used her TikTok as a platform to dispense the insider beauty tips and tricks she’s built up over her career in the entertainment industry.
Obviously Gomez knows a thing or two about makeup. She’s been wearing it since her pre-teens, she’s been able to observe the best makeup artists in the business at close range, and she’s captain of her own beauty brand, Rare.
The singer previously dropped her no-makeup makeup routine for followers wanting to emulate her clean-girl aesthetic, but the tip that’s really lit up TikTok is the tweezer-mascara application combo Gomez shared in a video she posted about how she uses her tinted moisturizer called “my simple quick look.” After applying her base, Selena showed how she carefully creates fluttery-looking lashes, combing her mascara wand through her top lashes, then coating her tweezers in mascara and clamping clumps of her bottom lashes between the tips to create a defined doll-lash effect.
And the message has spread. We’ve seen TikTok and Instagram users recreating the trick. The hashtag #selenagomezmascarahack has already picked up 33.2k views, while a video from @hayleybuix recreating Gomez’s hack has accumulated over a million likes and over 7 million views.
And on a reel posted to Instagram by @sherriewebster where she took the tip for a spin, the comments section was lit up with followers saying they’ll be recreating it asap.
