As a 24-year-old millennial woman, I can admit that it's incredibly easy to fall into the trap of trying to look perfect in every single picture I ever post...especially when it comes to Instagram, the app I have a love-hate relationship with. It's so easy to get caught up in the full face beats! But more often than not, it becomes irritating or exhausting, and sometimes, you wanna just ditch it all. I'm assuming Selena Gomez feels that way too, because she just hopped on the 'gram ~au naturel~.
On Instagram last night, Selena showed her 157 million followers that she is chilling and minding her goddamn business. How? Well, she posted a cute selfie of her hanging out in bed looking cozy AF with a warm, fuzzy-looking blanket. And get this—she had no makeup on! Not a single trace of tinted lip balm, brow filler, or zit cover-up was anywhere to be seen. How refreshing is that! Apparently, everyone's digging makeup-free Selena because this pic has over seven million likes and counting. I am jealous.
Honestly, I'm just glad to see that our Selena is feeling well-rested and is in better spirits lately. According to an E! source, Selena has been super focused on relaxing and taking back time for herself—and this picture is proof!
"Selena has truly had a transformative year," the source said. "She feels more stable and healthy than she has in the last couple of years and has been on a great path. Her overall health has increased tremendously. She has a new approach to every aspect of her life and wants to maintain a low-key lifestyle. She is focused on her health, family, friends and putting out new music."
Welp, if you'll excuse me, I'll be posting the catalog of my best unreleased makeup-free selfies in Selena's honor. Ciao for now!
