Selena Gomez is learning you can be comfortable and still look beautiful in clothes.

Selena Gomez has stopped using eyelash extensions.

Adding falsies is a beauty trend favoured by women the world over and has been the A-list's secret to longer lashes for over 100 years.

These days there are numerous options to help make eyes flutter, from pre-glued strip lashes to inserting individual lashes for a more permanent look. Selena was a big fan of the latter and is trying the natural approach at the moment.

"Not exactly," she smiled when InStyle UK asked if her lashes were real. "They're mostly real. I stopped doing lash extensions a while ago, but there are a few left."

As well as leaving false lashes behind, Selena has had an overhaul when it comes to how she thinks about style. The 23-year-old has been working with stylist Kate Young, and recently figured out that there's more to fashion than revealing and sexy dresses.

"I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful," she smiled, adding she doesn't always see herself as beautiful. "Some days I like what I see. Other days I'm like, 'I'm not even going to bother.'"

"I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys."

When it comes to her body though, Selena always feels confident. When online trolls tried to knock her confidence after she posted a bikini photo showing off her curves in 2014, Selena retaliated by posing nude on the cover of her new album Revival.

"It hurt my feelings because I never experienced that before, but I didn't want (that) to be the story, so I said, 'I don't care what you think!'" she confided.
