Selena Gomez went makeup-free on Monday when she kicked off the week with two Instagram selfies that showed off 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 shiny black hair in relaxed waves as she appeared to be enjoying some downtime at home looking relaxed.
“Purple Chemistry,” Selena captioned the post, which received rave reviews from her massive fan base, racking up four million likes in less than an hour.
“ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING GORGEOUS,” gushed fitness influencer Whitney Simmons, while another fan wrote, “SO PRETTYYYYYYYY.”
Selena likes to keep it real with her followers by regularly posting makeup-free selfies to promote body positivity.

“Me,” the new Instagram queen captioned, posting the candid images and earning massive praise in her comments section.
Nicola Peltz Beckham, 28, wrote “the most beautiful ever”, while White Lotus star Aubrey Plaza, 38, left Gomez a love emoji.

Gomez recalled privately wrestling with criticism of her fluctuating weight, sharing that she was more deeply affected by body shamers than she initially let on.
The Same Old Love singer, who previously revealed her lupus medication was causing her to gain weight, described coming across online as someone who doesn’t care about criticism – when in reality she was “crying eyes”.
“My weight was constantly fluctuating because I was on certain medications. And obviously people just ran with it,” Selena said.
“It was like they were eager to find something to knock me down. I was ashamed of having gained weight because of my lupus.
‘I lied. I would go online and post a picture of myself and say, ‘It doesn’t matter. I don’t accept what you say. All the while being in the room posting and crying because no one deserves to hear these things.
“Although I was posting these things saying I didn’t mind,” she explained, “because I didn’t want it to bother other people who are going through the same thing, who are ashamed of what to what they look like, who they are, who they like. I just think it’s so unfair. I don’t think anyone deserves to feel less than.
