FOTD: Inspired by Selena Gomez in "A year without rain" video

 This song has been my obsession the past week or so. After watching the video i was inspired to try and re-create her makeup look. It's very simple, yet fancy enough to wear on a nice night out. Reminder that this is not an exact replica of her makeup since i dont know what exact products she used, but you can use what you have and make it work. Hope you like it! =)
