Selena Gomez Has Made This Game-Changing Mascara Hack Go Viral

We’re tired of celebs dishing out “wash your face” and “drink water” as their number one beauty tip. But Selena Gomez seems to have understood the assignment. Recently, she’s used her TikTok page as a platform to dispense the insider beauty tips and tricks she’s built up over her career in the entertainment industry.

Obviously Selena knows a thing or two about makeup. She’s been wearing it since pre-teens, she’s been able to observe the best makeup artists in the business at close range and she’s captain of her own beauty brand, Rare.

The singer previously dropped her no makeup makeup routine for followers wanting to emulate her clean girl aesthetic, but the tip that’s really lit up TikTok is the tweezer-mascara application combo Selena shared in a video she posted about how she uses her tinted moisturizer called “my simple quick look.” After applying her base, Selena showed how she carefully creates fluttery-looking lashes, combing her mascara wand through her top lashes, then coating her tweezers in mascara and clamping clumps of her bottom lashes between the tips to create a defined doll-lash effect.


@rarebeauty oh and thank you so much for the support on my new tinted moisturizer!! Means so so much to me!

And the message has spread. We’ve seen TikTok and Instagram users recreating the trick. The hashtag #SelenaGomezMascaraHack has already picked up 33.2k views, while a video from @hayleybuix recreating Selena’s hack has accumulated over a million likes and over 7 million views.

And on a reel posted to Instagram by @sherriewebster where she took the tip for a spin, the comments section was lit up with followers saying they’ll be recreating it ASAP.

So if you’re looking for perfectly defined spidery lashes amped up with some sultry clumpy action, Selena Gomez is your girl. And, while we’re at it, we’ll be trying the blush-across-the-bridge-of-the-nose-trick she used in the same video to give her a beautifully natural-looking sun-flushed blush.
