Selena Gomez wore a gorgeous champagne-gold J. Mendel gown to last night's Grammy Awards, but if we had to choose one thing to co-opt from her look, it would be her glowing, natural makeup. Celebrity makeup artist Karan Mitchell created Gomez's look entirely with CoverGirl products.

"I stared with Selena's eyes," Mitchell says. "I first lined her upper and lower lashline with CoverGirl LiquilineBlast eyeliner ($8) in Brown Blaze. I love how the liquid-like pencil blends so easily and that you can easily control its intensity."

Next, using a medium brush, "I blended the light shade from the CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast ($9) in Bronze Fire on the entire eyelid up to the eyebrow," Mitchell says. "I then took step two, the darker shade, and with a smaller eyeshadow brush, I blended the color above and below the eye as well as into the crease of the eyelid. I then used the CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Eyeshadow ($3.50) in Brown Smolder on the outside corners of her upper eyelids to create more dimension and drew a thin line with a slight wing to the outer edges on the upper lash line using CoverGirl LineExact Liquid liner ($7) in Very Black. I finished her eyes with two coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara ($7.50) in Black."

"For her skin, I used CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation ($12) to give her a flawless finish," Mitchell says. "To highlight the t-zone and highlight under the eyes I used the CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer ($6) in medium. To set the base I used CoverGirl TruBlend Pressed Powder ($8) in #2 Translucent Light with a soft brush. I then applied to the apples of the cheeks Cheekers Blush ($4) in Pretty Peach."

"I finished her look with CoverGirl LipPerfection lipcolor ($7.50) in the bright gorgeous shade of Siren."
