When it comes to makeup, it seems like Selena Gomez often knows something others don’t. Whether it’s must-have beauty products from the drug store, a clever mascara trick for lower lashes, or the newest Rare Beauty products, the beauty mogul always has something up her sleeve. Lucky for us, she’s willing to share. The latest intel Selena is dishing is a very simple but effective contour hack.

Selena demonstrated her technique in a new TikTok video, where she shared an everyday makeup look. To start off, Selena puts Rare Beauty primer and concealer on, particularly around her eyes, nose, and jawline. Next, she shaped and filled her eyebrows in with the Rare Beauty Brow Harmony Shape & Fill Duo.

Moving on, Selena grabs a bronzer stick to show us her contouring method. She applies the product just under the cheekbones and along her forehead. Before blending, in upward motions, she continues to blend only the bronzer to give it a lifted look.

After she finishes contouring her face, she then uses the bronzer stick again on the outer parts of her eyelids, giving them a bit of definition to accentuate the eyes. And just like that, she showed us how to do this — now potentially viral — contour hack without using any words but instead just a point of the finger. It’s that simple.

Selena Gomez finished the look by adding just a bit of Rare Beauty’s viral blush, highlight, and setting powder. For the last step, she used the Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm to give the look an extra pop of color. The final result was a soft glam look that is quite fitting for the end of summer and early fall. With the video reaching over one million likes, it’s safe to say we’ll be giving this look, and especially this hack, a try. Thank you again, Selena Gomez.
