Birthday girl Selena Gomez matches her makeup to her dress

Selena Gomez, best known for her role as Alex Russo on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, is all grown up! The raven-haired actress recently celebrated her 18th birthday.

The star appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon looking lovely in a lavender cocktail dress and matching eye makeup.

Gomez, who was gifted with a large cupcake adorned with blazing candles while backstage at the program, looked sleek and sophisticated in her ensemble.

Those who want to follow the young actress' lead can work to create a monochromatic look. For formal events, choose an eyeshadow shade that corresponds to your dress and sweep the color across your upper lids. Apply a thin but precise line of black or dark brown eyeliner along your upper and lower lashes as well.

For an extra pop of the color, choose a water-resistant mascara in a shade that also complements your outfit.

Of course, flaking and clumping mascara has the potential to ruin any look. Choose an acrylic-based tubing mascara to ensure a flawless finish.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19904444-ADNFCR
