Selena Gomez's Makeup Artist Is Posting Product Reviews on Instagram
We accept this rose.
There’s a chance you are already aware of this makeup pro on Instagram, but on the off chance you aren’t already taking notes on all the glowy goodness he creates for the hottest supermodels around (yeah, like Stella and Taylor and your girl Ashley Graham) oh, um, and SELENA GOMEZ, this will serve as your motivation to finally click follow.
With a following of over 300K and a feed that's literally dominated by A-listers' gorgeous faces, you can assume that celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo is pretty well known in the Hollywood sphere and that he knows his stuff. You could also assume that he knows his products. I mean, you don't create total radiance for Rosie Huntington-Whitely with a sub-par primer...Luckily for anyone like me who fan-girls whenever makeup artists spill their kits or when YouTube vloggers do haul videos, it looks like Hung is about to add product reviews to his already golden Instagram line-up.
Starting this week, I decided I would have a little fun and post a few makeup & skincare favorites and the reasons why I'm featuring them. Some are new and some are old go-to's. I'll post new ones every couple of weeks. None of the products here are sponsored, and the opinions are mine! 1. Anastasia Foundation Stick With almost 30 shades, there are options for every skintone. This has a more matte texture, so would be good for oily or combination skin. It can be applied sheer, or to achieve full coverage if needed. The price is also great--about $25 each! @anastasiabeverlyhills 2. Nars Unrestricted Matte Eyeliner Stylo Easy to apply, and completely matte! Sometimes when a liquid liner is too shiny, it can appear imperfect on the red carpet due to the patchy reflection of flash photography. This one photographs exactly as it's applied. @narsissist 3. Three Cosmetics 4D Eyeshadow Most of these quads come with four textures of eyeshadow (matte, satin, shimmer, and cream) in coordinating colors. Currently only available to anyone living in or visiting Asia, but worth trying if you get a chance! The whole brand is amazing. @threecosmetics 4. Covergirl Katy Kat Lipstick Sometimes matte lipsticks can be dry. This one looks matte but still has enough moisture that it's comfortable to wear. Available in a variety of great colors for only about $7 each! @katyperry @covergirl 5. Marc Jacobs Airblush These new blushes from @marcbeauty are so beautiful. The texture allows you to apply a very soft wash of color, but is buildable for brighter color. I love the satiny multidimensional finish. @marcbeauty 6. Natasha Denona Blackest Black Matte Shadow One of the blackest eyeshadows I've seen. Highly pigmented, but with a soft texture. Can be used with a damp brush for even more intensity or as an eyeliner. @natashadenona If you like this mini review and want to see more like it, please let me know in the comments! 😛

Honest and true product opinions from an industry great? Yeah, we're down.
Hung went on to give his reviews on six different products, including the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Airblush ($42; sephora.com) and Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks ($7; target.com) from CoverGirl. We can vouch for both of those gems, too.
He also added his thoughts on the new Anastasia Beverly Hills foundation sticks (available in 30 different shades?!) and NARS Matte Eyeliner.
He ended his post by asking fans to leave a comment if they liked the series and wanted to see more. And to that we say, "we accept." How about one every Monday? That would certainly give us a reason to fight off the Sunday scaries.
Again, who doesn't want makeup advice from Selena Gomez's glam squad?
