Selena Gomez recently shared two stunning no-makeup selfies on Instagram, showing off her natural beauty to her millions of followers. And after that, her IG went to almost 400 million followers. The singer, who is known for her flawless skin and effortless style, posed in a black zippered tank with her hair cascading over one shoulder.
In the caption, Gomez gave a shoutout to Miley Cyrus‘ music, referencing her song “Violet chemistry” from her latest album. She also tagged Cyrus in the post, which quickly racked up one million likes in just eight minutes.
Not only did Cyrus respond with a red heart emoji, but other celebrities and fans couldn’t help but compliment Gomez’s fresh-faced look. Influencer Suede Brooks wrote, “there she goes in all her glory,” while Paris Hilton left a heart-eyed emoji, and Jessica Capshaw called her “gorgeous.”
Fans also flooded the comments section with words of praise, calling her “flawless” and “perfect.”
She’s the founder of Rare Beauty, that emphasizes self-love
This isn’t the first time Gomez has shared makeup-free selfies on social media. Just last month, she posted similar photos that showcased her natural curls. As the founder of Rare Beauty, a makeup line that emphasizes self-love and mental health, Gomez is a vocal advocate for embracing your imperfections and loving yourself as you are.
The release of these photos comes after Gomez took a break from social media amid ongoing drama with Hailey Bieber, the wife of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Bieber’s social media posts were seen by some fans as subtle digs at Gomez, leading to backlash and tension between the two.
By sharing these no-makeup selfies, Gomez is showing the world that beauty comes in many forms, and that confidence and self-love are truly the keys to feeling beautiful inside and out.
As she once said, “I don’t really think I’m beautiful unless I’m happy, and I know that sounds cliche but it’s really true.” It’s clear that Gomez is radiating happiness and beauty in these stunning photos.
