In her newly released summer single “Good For You,” Selena Gomez makes it clear that she doesn't shy away from dolling up. So what’s the secret to the sexy, come-hither stare she shows off in the video? A kitten eye, which, as celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin explains in the clip above, is not "quite as vampy” and “a little softer” than the cat-eye that many women wear.

The first step to achieving Gomez’s everyday look is to create a short, thin line at the corner of your eye before connecting it onto the lash line. Goodwin’s foolproof trick involves using a liquid liner pen like Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22, sephora.com) and pressing on the color with small exacting strokes. Watch the video above to learn all of Goodwin’s pro techniques.
