Have you ever wondered why your makeup selfies don’t look as good as the celebrities and influencers in your feed?
This is simply because most of us don’t have access to professional lighting and don’t have the time or patience to play around with the filters in editing apps.
Fortunately, there are celebrities like Selena Gomez who are not afraid to show off what their makeup looks like in real life with natural lighting and no effect.
We’ve all been there, when you really get your makeup on and you need to snap a photo right there. It might help to know that even Selena is the same as us.
In a new selfie posted to Instagram, Selena clearly loved her pink lip and smoky winged liner so much that she had to take a photo there and then in the car.
The person responsible for Selena’s look was her usual makeup artist, Melissa Murdick, who worked with her on everything from magazine covers to music videos.
Obviously, Selena is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but it’s so refreshing to see that just like us, she has a natural skin texture.

All of these filters and lighting can make you feel like the only person in the world with pores, but it literally isn’t.
The more people like Selena normalize the natural textures of the skin, the better. So the next time you post your fiery makeup selfie, don’t even think about downloading FaceTune.
