Love Selena Gomez’s lipstick on InStyle’s June cover? It can be yours, thanks to some inside scoop from the makeup artist behind the look, Lisa Houghton. “I wanted her to look really fresh and radiant with a bright summery, modern edge,” Houghton told InStyle.com. “I went for a vibrant fuchsia pink lip rather than red, which looks great on her skin tone.” She ended up picking Nars Cosmetics’ Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap. To soften the lipstick’s intense color, Houghton dabbed it on Gomez’s lips with her finger rather than a brush. “I pressed down quite hard to make the lipstick really matte and then cleaned the edges with a Q tip,” she explained. “This is a great way to apply lipstick if you’re not used to wearing bold color.” Pick up your own tube for $26 at narscosmetics.com.
