Singer-actress Selena Gomez and Beauty Youtuber NikkieTutorials get ready together and get real.
The pair team up in Nikkie’s “Get Glam With SELENA GOMEZ & Me!” video, uploaded last September 6, 2020, to talk about Selena Gomez’s new cosmetics line, Rare Beauty, and NikkieTutorialsXBeauty Bay Pressed Pigment Palette collaboration.
Even with the two filming in different locations, following social distancing measures, the pair made it seem like they weren’t miles apart.
We can all agree that makeup is one form of therapy, and this goes the same for both Selena and Nikkie. In the chatty video, the two banter like real girlfriends discussing deeper topics like beauty standards and fame, while putting on their glam looks together.
At the beginning of the video the pair talk about the message behind Selena’s cosmetics line, Rare Beauty to which she replies :
“It’s a great way to connect with people who feel the pressure of what this world entails in makeup.” Selena then proceeds to restate her mission of creating this brand that helps with mental health and reducing the pressure to look a certain way.
Nikkie then asks Selena what she thought of today’s beauty standards and how she would change it if she had the chance, to which Selena answers, “I want to break down this model of perfection, a certain type of way that you need to be. I don’t look like some of my colleagues and people who are beautiful, and I’m ok with that.”
The two then proceed to put on their glam looks and talk about Selena’s love life, childhood memories, her collab with Blackpink, and the difficulties of dealing with fame.
It’s a cute video that shows the love and support the pair have for each other as they embrace the ‘perfection’ in imperfection.
