Selena Gomez went makeup-free on Monday when she kicked off the week with two Instagram selfies that showcased her radiant complexion.
The 30-year-old superstar – who recently opened up about her difficult lupus diagnosis – rocked a low-cut black tank top as she treated her 398 million followers to the pair of candid photos.
Gomez wore her lustrous dark hair in casual waves as she appeared to be enjoying some downtime at home, looking relaxed.
‘Violet chemistry,’ Selena captioned the post, which earned rave reviews from her massive fanbase, racking up four million likes in under one hour.
‘ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING GORGEOUS,’ gushed fitness influencer Whitney Simmons, while another fan wrote, ‘SO PRETTYYYYYYYY.’
Selena is fond of keeping it real with her followers as she posts makeup-free selfies on a regular basis to promote body positivity.
The Only Murders in The Building star posted a very candid picture last month, foregoing filters to proudly display a prominent blemish on her upper lip.
‘Me,’ captioned the new queen of Instagram, posting the honest images and gaining massive praise in her comments section.
Nicola Peltz Beckham, 28, wrote ‘most beautiful ever,’ while White Lotus star Aubrey Plaza, 38, left Gomez a lovestruck emoji.
Selena rocked her natural curls and a cozy pair of sweaters, allowing her bare features to shine with radiant confidence.

Gomez recalled privately struggling over criticism of her fluctuating weight, sharing that she was more deeply impacted by body shamers than she had initially let on.
The Same Old Love songstress, who previously revealed her lupus medication causes her to gain weight, described portraying herself online as someone who didn’t care about the criticism – when in reality she was ‘crying my eyes out.’
‘My weight would constantly fluctuate because I would be on certain medications. And obviously, people just ran with it,’ Selena said.
‘It was like they couldn’t wait to find a thing to bring me down. I was being shamed for gaining weight because of my lupus.
‘I lied. I would go online and I would post a picture of myself and I would say, “It doesn’t matter. I’m not accepting what you’re saying.” All the while, being in the room posting and crying my eyes out because nobody deserves to hear those things.
‘Though I was posting these things saying it doesn’t bother me,’ she explained, ‘because I didn’t want it to bother other people who are experiencing the same thing, getting shamed for what they look like, who they are, who they love. I just think it’s so unfair. I don’t think that anybody deserves to feel less than.’
