And here’s part two of my Selena inspired beauty look. I emphasized Ruby’s eyes even more by adding a dark brown smoke in the outer corners and a thicker liner on top, adding dimension and sultriness.

I also turned up the glam by recreating Selena’s most notable look, but with a twist. We all know Selena for her big infectious smile and full lips -

often painted a classical red. But instead of using a regular cream lipstick, I upgraded with a sparkly-metallic-y finish using micro glitter from the heaven sent Pat McGrath.

I like to think that Selena would’ve loved to have Pat do her makeup, especially since they were both creative innovators back then.

Hope y’all enjoyed viewing this as much I enjoyed creating it!
