Selena Gomez returned to Cannes this year and she looked absolutely gorgeous!

Selena walked the red carpet for her new film Emilia Pérez, a Spanish-language film that also stars Zoe Saldaña and Karla Sofía Gascón.

According to Variety, the musical movie follows Zoe Saldaña, a lawyer, who ends up helping a drug cartel leader (Karla Sofía Gascón) complete a sex change in order to evade authorities and become the woman she always wanted to be.

The film premiered in Cannes on Saturday, May 18, where the trio walked the red carpet. Selena wore a gorgeous Saint Laurent black and white off-the-shoulder gown with a BVLGARI white gold diamond necklace and BVLGARI white gold diamond drop earrings.

And, of course, Sel rocked a face full of Rare Beauty, her own makeup company.

Skin Prep

For the look, Hung revealed he partnered with iconic skincare brand Cetaphil to get Sel’s face prepped for makeup.

1. Cleanse

Hung used Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser on Selena’s face and then wiped it off with a wet cloth. It’s worth noting that he didn’t use water in the process so the product would set in, giving “added hydration”

2. Eye Serum

The makeup artist then “gently tapped” Cetaphil Healthy Renew Eye Gel Serum along the orbital bone (aka the bone under your eyes).

3. Moisturize

Moisturizing is a must and Hung used Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 35.

The Eyes

To get Selena’s light smokey eye, Hung used Rare Beauty All of the Above Weightless Eyeshadow Stick in the shade Rose Taupe, Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Eyeliner, and Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Volumizing Mascara.

The Face

To create Selena’s glow, Hung used Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Luminous Powder Blush in the shade Joy (Rare beauty’s newest product launch!) and Rare Beauty Positive Light Silky Touch Highlighter in the shade Mesmerize.

The Lips

And finally, the lips! Hung went for a shade of brown with Rare Beauty Kind Words Matte Lipstick in the shade Talented and Rare Beauty Kind Words Matte Lip Liner also in the shade Talented.
