Selena Gomez wore Marc Jacobs Beauty to the 2017 Met Gala created by Marc Beauty Global Artistry Ambassador Hung Vanngo.

“I was originally going to do something very soft on Selena Gomez —the twist was the bright pink eyeliner I came across while sorting through colors. I thought it would be a fun punch of color.⠀

After applying Coconut Primer, I buffed Genius Gel into the skin. I added luminosity to the skin by blending Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter on top of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and on the Cupid’s bow. I followed with a little Remedy Concealer Pen under the eyes, and Re(Marc)able Concealer wherever a bit of extra coverage was wanted. To set, I used Perfection Powder through the t-zone. I then dusted the high points of the face with O!Mega Bronzer and added a swirl of Air Blush to the apples of the cheeks.⠀

For the bright pop of color on Selena’s eyes, I drew Matte Highliner in Popular along the top lashline, into the crease, and onto the outer third of the eyelid, extending outward. I blended this into the shape I wanted with a brush. I then applied the soft pink shades from Style Eye-Con No. 7 Palette in The Lover as a wash across the entire eye, and along the bottom lashes. The lashes were thickened and defined with a coat of Velvet Noir Mascara on top, and just slightly on the bottom with Feather Noir Ultra-skinny Mascara.⠀

For lips, I wanted to keep the same tonal color story. I used one of my favorite colors from New Nudes, In The Mood . Before applying this, I softly outlined lips with (P)outliner in Nudeist.⠀

For a glow on the body, I went back and added Marc Glow Stick in "Spotlight” on the collarbones, shoulders, arms and the legs.⠀

A quick spritz of Coconut Setting Mist on the way out the door, and she’s good to go!“

I want to live with you in a yellow house.

We could start every day with breakfast in our sunflower kitchen,
being swarmed by friendly buzzing bumblebees.

We could paint our bedroom with the patient color of
s l o w d o w n.

We could write about our honey flavored souls with Number Two pencils in an office the shade of a caution sign.

We could sleep and love each other under sun-kissed sheets beneath a lemonade chandelier.

We could wake up from dreams of autumn leaves and sweet corn.
We could wake up from dreams of yellow houses.

The third red truck that stole my attention
never really took me anywhere.
Instead, it sat in parking lots
like it was waiting for an excuse
to hit the gas and go.
I spent eight months in the passenger seat
before realizing there was no adventure awaiting me;
there wasn’t even a destination.
Leaving was painless;
I simply opened the door and walked away.

“lover” he called her, 

turning her eyes

the color of sunrise 

with his golden 

glowing 

kiss. 

we are those clouds that powder the 

sky and we are the drops of 

rain. 

we are those midnight 

breezeblown 

whispers 


made just to numb the 

pain
