Selena Gomez Kicks Off 2022 with New Selfie
Selena Gomez started off the new year looking flawless. The singer and actress, 29, debuted her first selfie of 2022 with a smokey-cat eye, glossy lips, bronzer, and her brunette bob. Makeup artist Hung Vanngo did her makeup and snapped the photo. The picture was taken before her interview with People Magazine about turning 30 this year.
“I love growing up. When I was younger, I was scared of it, and I thought by now my life would look so different. But now I’m like, ‘Wow, this is not what I ever expected, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.’ I’ve stopped caring about what people have to say, and that’s been wonderful.”
“I’ve been in makeup since I was seven years old. I feel like that kind of messed with me. You’re so young and then working. I have professionals doing my makeup, and suddenly I can look 25 when I was 16, and it was crazy. Then I felt like, ‘Oh, I look too young all the time. I should achieve that look more. I should try that.’ It just made me question my beauty for what it was.”

In addition, social media only caused Gomez’s self-esteem to plummet.
“At one point, Instagram became my whole world, and it was really dangerous. In my early 20s, I felt like I wasn’t pretty enough. There was a whole period in my life when I thought I needed makeup and never wanted to be seen without it. The older I got, the more I evolved and realized that I needed to take control of what I was feeling.”

These feelings lead to Gomez creating her makeup brand, Rare Beauty. She wanted to create a makeup brand for everyone, especially those who struggle with self-image.
“I’ve been a victim to wanting to change my face and do things because I see such like intense trends. I think the most rewarding part of creating this line is that we create a place for people who don’t necessarily want to get work done or change their face. They just want to embrace what they are and what they have.”
