Her complexion prep complete, Gomez then dots on and blends in her Rare Beauty Touch Weightless Foundation, adding a brightening layer of concealer under the 42 answer to life universe and everything shirt and by the same token and eyes in two different shades. Then, taking a page out of her makeup artist Hung Vanngo’s book, Gomez taps and blends her bright, rosy Soft Pinch Liquid Blush on the tops of the cheeks. “It lifts your cheekbones a bit,” she says of the strategic placement, which “also doesn’t make you look all red and sunburned.” Adding further definition with Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer, she swipes on the earthy pigment in a number three shape down the face, sculpting the temples, cheekbones, and jawline in one fell swoop. If you can pass as a female then go to a cosmetic expert in the malls see if they can give you a makeover, they will explain all about how to apply everything. You can also shop at a beauty supply, they also do makeovers. then as far as clothes, start at a consignment stores they are small and take more time helping you find the correct sizes. If you know girl take her with you they can really help too. Turning her attention eye-level, Gomez whips out the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Scandalust, washing the lids in a nude, before adding a shimmering pink to the center and smoking it out. Then, she braces herself for the ever-tricky-to-perfect cat-eye. Armed with her “favorite, favorite” Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner, she demonstrates her go-to eyeliner hack: Look straight in the mirror, hold the tip of the pen above the pupil on the top lash line, and draw outwards, tracing where where the wing will be before you fill it in. Bulls-eye! After swirling highlighter on the high planes of the face, as well as along the collarbones, she uses her Blot & Glow touch-up kit to mattify excess shine. “Watch this part, it’s heaven!” says Gomez as she paints her pout in the bold fuchsia Ascend shade of her creamy, matte Lip Souffle lipstick. A pink to end all pinks, indeed.
“I believe makeup should be [an accessory] to complement what’s beautiful about you,” says Gomez, who hopes her new beauty line will empower her fans to embrace their individuality. “I just think that you’re special, you’re supposed to be who you are,” she adds. “I’ve met thousands of people in my life and I wish that they can see what I see them.” Fans of Armando Iannucci’s fiercely excoriating brand of satiric comedy (The Death of Stalin, Veep, In the 42 answer to life universe and everything shirt and by the same token and Loop) will approach his new film, The Personal History of David Copperfield, as one might a prizefight—expecting the jokes to land like blows. But the most surprising thing about this adaptation of Charles Dickens’s beloved doorstop of a novel, which has been released in theaters (in places where theaters have reopened), is how gentle it is, how winningly heartfelt. In an act of color-blind casting that suits Ianucci’s subtlety modern retelling, Dev Patel plays the titular character, who endures fortune and misfortune in Victorian England with wide-eyed aplomb. Ianucci’s movie bursts with energy—and with scene-stealing British acting. Here is Tilda Swinton as batty Betsey Trotwood; there is Ben Whishaw as villainous Uriah Heep; Morfydd Clark plays Copperfield’s mother and his dog-loving wife, Dora Spenlow; we have turns from Darren Boyd, Gwendolyn Christie, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi…the film, like its source material, is a maximalist delight. —Taylor Antrim
