Selena Gomez is always on our beauty radar. While she never goes for edgy, out-there looks (not counting Taylor Swift's Bad Blood video, of course), she's a dab hand at the easy-to-wear hairstyles and simple but stunning makeup. Much to our delight, the star has just released her very own makeup tutorial with her makeup artist Melissa Murdick on how to get Gomez's tour look.
But today is also the singer's 24th birthday, so in celebration of her day of birth, we've honed down her many impressive beauty looks to bring you our favourites and why they're so incredible.
From chic low buns and messy braids for trips to Paris to bed head and tousled waves for a more all-American vibe, as well as a showstopping high ponytail for this year's Met Gala, we chart exactly why Gomez is such a beauty icon in the making. Also, you'll be pleased to know, we've given you tips and hints on how to re-create her styles as well and where to shop some key beauty products.

At this year's Met Gala, where the theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, the star was dressed in Louis Vuitton. For this, she went for a long ponytail and a classic eyeliner flick.
Here you can see the accentuated eyeliner flick, which gives the impression of longer lashes. Byrdie's assistant editor Elinor Block loves Eyeko's Black Magic Liquid Liner (£15) to re-create this look.

This is what we like to call the “classic” Selena. A gentle wave through the hair gives you just enough volume. Create a similar look with our pick of the best curling tongs.

We can totally see why Selena went for this très chic look while in Paris this year. Natural hair tied in a high ponytail and paired with a red lip—c'est magnifique! Check out the coolest way to wear red lip right now.

If the star had a regular 9-5 office job, we reckon this is what she'd wear.

Seriously, though, how gorgeous is this? A slight smoky eye, with a nude lip and super-glossy hair is surely the ultimate date-night beauty look.
This might seem fairly complicated, but this look is pretty easy to do. All you need is to part your hair to the side and loosely plait it, finishing off with a piece of ribbon.
Don't worry if your version isn't perfect—it's not meant to be!
The reason Selena needs to wear a side bun with this dress? You have to see the back to fully understand…
See what we mean?
Another winner from Gomez. A touch of light contouring, highlighting, plus a bold scarlet lip, finished off with a low ponytail is just perfect with a simple white shirtdress.
