Selena Gomez Says She Used to Need Makeup 'to Feel Pretty'

  • Selena Gomez recently discussed her beauty routine with Glamour UK.
  • Despite launching her own beauty line last year, she said she doesn’t need makeup “to feel pretty.”
  • “Makeup is something to have fun with, but not something you need,” she said.

Despite finding success with her own beauty line, Selena Gomez said she no longer sees makeup as a necessity.

During a recent interview with Glamour UK about expanding Rare Beauty overseas, the “Only Murders in the Building” star was asked to give self-care advice to her younger self.

“I’d tell her that makeup is something to have fun with, but not something you need,” she said. “I used to think I needed to wear makeup to feel pretty, and I can definitely say that has changed as I’ve gotten older.” 

Gomez also said she keeps her makeup routine “pretty simple” when she’s not filming, and values her moisturizer over any other product in her beauty cabinet.

“Hydrated skin is very important to me,” she said. 

Gomez launched Rare Beauty in 2020 with the goal of having “open conversations around beauty and mental health,” she told Glamour UK. The minimalist collection earned a rave review from Insider’s lifestyle reporter Amanda Krause, who said nearly every item is worth buying.

The “Dance Again” singer has long been vocal about the connection between mental health and self-image, particularly after growing up in the public eye.

She has said she found it “violating” to be followed and photographed as a teenager on Disney Channel, and opened up to Vogue about using fashion to feel confident in her body after her lupus diagnosis in 2015.
