Selena Gomez at the 2010 VMAs

makeup artist Karan Mitchell (for Nyx Cosmetics) created a red carpet look for Selena Gomez's appearance at the 2010 VMAs inspired by the star's inner radiance and glowing personality. using Nyx Cosmetics' latest and greatest products, Karan kept Selena's makeup fresh and cool, while adding a bold touch of color to her eyes and a soft hue to lips.

on the eyes:

Karan started by applying the new Concealer Jar in Fair as a base on the lid and then applied Highlight, blending from the crease up to the brow. next, the highly pigmented sapphire blue shade from Eye Shadow Trio in Aquamarine was applied to the lids and slightly above the crease. Karan then blended the deep blue in the I Dream of Antigua 5 Color Eye Shadow Palette on the outside corners of her lids. to add definition, Selena's eyes were lined with Magic Kohl eye liner pencil by Givenchy. 2 coats of Nyx Doll Eye Mascara in Black finished the look.

for the cheeks:

Karan created a fresh-faced, healthy glow for Selena using Nyx Cosmetics Tango with Bronzer Stix #2 in Merengue Flush on the apples of her cheeks.

for the lips:

a fresh, nude lip was created using Nyx Cosmetics Lipstick shade #174 Nude, and Mega Shine Lipgloss in #104 Sweet Heart.
