Selena Gomez has long since proven that her Instagram selfie skills are unparalleled. After all, she's the most followed person on the platform, and her breathtaking beauty looks play a part in that. But sometimes her best selfies aren't even on her own account. For that, we turn to the singer's longtime makeup artist Hung Vanngo, whose feed is full of Instagram inspiration.

Vanngo posted a new photo of Gomez on Saturday night as the crew was getting prepped for a night out. Her smoky eye and glossy nude lip offered the perfect contrast to her features, while long waves framed her face. And let's talk about those waves for a minute, because hairstylist Danielle Priano added drama to Gomez's short cut with extensions that had the kind of sun-kissed highlights that are perfect for summer.

What do all of these elements add up to? A perfect selfie. And while it might take us a million tries to get a snap like Selena's, at least we can refer to this photo for inspiration.
