Selena Gomez likes to keep it real on Instagram, and that includes sharing herself unfiltered and makeup-free sometimes. Recently, she posted a refreshing photo of herself with zero makeup, choosing not to cover a spot beneath her nose. And we love her for it.
In her latest post, the Only Murders In The Building star looks beautiful in another barefaced snap – this time, with her long hair in tousled waves and some fluttery eyelash extensions. Her complexion, however, is product free – and seriously glowing.
Giving a nod to close friend Miley Cyrus with her caption (Violet Chemistry is the eighth track on Miley’s new album Endless Summer Vacation), the most-followed woman on Instagram of course received plenty of compliments from her fans – with many commenting on her glowing skin.
“Literal natural beauty!!!!!” one wrote, with another replying: “That natural beauty… skin is so good.”
While we can’t be sure of the exact skincare routine that Selena Gomez uses to prep her skin before her stunning selfies, we have been given plenty of cues via the singer’s TikTok page, on which she often shares her beauty faves (including her Rare Beauty picks, of course).
In February, she posted her skincare and minimal makeup routine ahead of an early flight, in which she used the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosemary, before cleansing with iS Clinical’s Cleansing Complex. She added her Rare Beauty Hydrating Under Eye Patches, before using Dermalogica’s Multi-Active Toner, Smart Response Serum and Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum (for that lit-from-within glow, no doubt).
In another skincare video, Selena has also shared an unusual technique – by using Creme De La Mer’s pricey La Concentrate serum, which costs £170, to cleanse, break down and remove her makeup. She then uses Bioderma micellar water to remove the residue from her skin.
The star’s other favourite glow-giving products include the La Mer The Renewal Oil, Tatcha’s The Water Cream and the La Neige Radian-C Cream, £22.50. We’ll try anything for that Gomez glow.
