Selena Gomez’s makeup artist Melissa Murdick has recently spilled the secret to the singer’s flawless look during red carpet events.

“I really love to layer setting spray in-between different steps,” said Melissa in an exclusive interview with E! News.

Selena’s makeup artist told the outlet, “I'll do skin first, a layer of setting spray, then I'll do the eyes. Once I do the cheeks, I'll do another layer [of setting spray]. And when I put powder down, and setting spray on top of that, that locks it in.”

“I'm always going to use a primer for the red carpet and a long-wear foundation,” revealed Melissa.

The makeup artist opened up on how she kept shadows from fading especially for Selena.

"You always need a base for your eye makeup,” noted Melissa.

She explained, “Whether that's a concealer and powder or an eye primer, the key to all makeup and longevity is layering.”

“If I know Selena's got a long day, I might use an eye primer and then a waterproof cream shadow as a base, and then layer her powder shadows on top,” shared the ColourPop partner.

Melissa added, “That is the key and also getting rid of the oil. If you've got oily lids, you gotta blot it and get rid of it first.”
