Mudrick was going for a soft and romantic look, saying that she wanted something “feminine” and “very beautiful,” which fits the overall look and feel of the music video.
Some of the references that the makeup artist used include images from Dulce and Gabbana’s spring 2014 and Alexander McQueen’s 2016 spring runway.
Selena’s look in the music video is very soft and “natural” looking, so restraint must be exercised to keep the face looking just as fresh.
Mudrick says that you want to keep the skin looking fresh and dewy, and that means keeping the layer of foundation very light. They used Rare Beauty's Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer, Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation, and Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer (both in shade 210N).
"Add a little highlighter to your cheekbones and temples to amp up the glow, and pat on a generous amount of liquid blush all over the cheeks to create a flushed look."
Murdick tells “Elle.”
The eyes tend to be tricky be a tricky spot for many, but Mudrick has gone for something simple but gorgeous with this look. Easy enough for the beginner makeup enthusiast.
"Apply a wash of a light, shimmery eyeshadow across the entire eye area to make the eyes look big and bright, and then do an ultra-thin swipe of liquid liner close to the lash line to give the eye shape a bit of definition. Curl the lashes and add a couple coats of mascara so they look long and fluffy."
Murdick tells “Elle.”
Complete the look with a soft, tinted balm and a flushed-lip color, and Bob’s your uncle! You’ve achieved the gorgeous, subtle look from Selena’s “De Una Vez” music video just like that.
“Elle” reports that Murdick used With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm in Honor with two Lip Soufflé Matte Lip Creams in Thrilling and Heroic.
