Selena Gomez recently began running her own Instagram account again after having handed those duties off to her social media team for several years. Since taking the reins, she’s posted several throwback pics and even a teaser of herself in a recording studio

However, it’s the Rare Beauty founder’s most recent set of selfies that has fans over the moon. The now viral Feb. 1 photos showed Gomez makeup free with her hair framing her face in natural curls.

The first two snaps in the trio showcased the 30-year-old’s natural beauty as she posed on a couch, while the last image depicted Gomez’s fresh face as she stood in a doorway.

The Wondermind cofounder captioned the post she shared with her 375 million followers simply, “Me.” The refreshing collection of photographs quickly racked up more than seven million likes.

Childhood friend Connar Franklin wrote, “natural beauty,” while actress Aubrey Plaza left a heart-eye emoji as her feedback.

“Most beautiful ever 💘💘,” chimed in bestie Nicola Peltz.

“The ability to be vulnerable and bare is a huge victory for anyone. Keep being your awesome, beautiful self 💕,” said fitness influencer Senada Greca.

Last December, Gomez chatted with People about her beauty brand and noted that she aims to make Rare Beauty products inclusive for all.

“What I’m most proud of is the conversation that we’ve created in the beauty space,” she stated. “I feel like we were challenging the norms and I really wanted to create a brand that was for everyone.”

She also shared that mental health and self-love are vital aspects of her makeup line.

“I’m noticing other brands getting on board with mental health, too, and I’m really, really excited about that,” Gomez said. “If anything, that’s the most important part of my brand.”
