Selena answering questions about her favorite products, biggest beauty secrets and more in interview with Allure Magazine.
Best habit you’ve picked up during quarantine:
Watching too much TV.
A beauty habit you left behind in your teens:
I clean my skin now. In my teens, I just didn’t care. I would sleep with makeup on and get away with it, I guess, for a little bit.
One beauty technique you’re bomb at now, and one you still need help with:
I still need help with eye shadow. What I’ve got down is the winged look. The tip [of Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Linerstays] pretty straight, and it’s smooth. It’s one of my favorites.
Off-duty makeup routine:
Lately, I’ve been using my Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Bliss a lot. I just tap it onto my cheekbones and maybe a little color on my lip.
First thing you do when you wake up:
I usually drink a lot of water. It takes me a good 15 minutes to get out of bed.
The secret to a really good shower:
Lemon and eucalyptus essential oils. [It’s a blend] that awakens everything.
Last thing you do before you go to sleep:
My dogs come in my bed, and I wash my face. I’ll put on something comforting [to watch], like Friends or Will & Grace, and just watch a few episodes, then fall asleep.
Something you can’t get enough of:
Laughter. I love to laugh. I’m telling you, it’s the greatest thing. I do not have a very delicate laugh.
Always been a hoops girl.
Short or long hair:
Short. Everybody says the long hair is me and I think that’s because I’ve worn it for a huge period of my life. But my short hair will, I think, always be me.
I usually go in for snacks and then end up buying [other] things. You never know when you need something like toenail clippers.
Chicken and dumplings. Only from my nana — she makes the best.
Bob Dylan. “The Times They Are A-Changin’.”
Last tattoo you got:
After the album [Rare] came out, I went to New York and had Bang Bang put the word “Rare” [under my ear]. He was like, “Why are you getting a neck tattoo?” I was like, “No, you’ll understand.”
