Something happened in 2020 (perhaps as a result of back-to-back lockdowns keeping people cooped up indoors): Celebrities started sharing endless no-makeup selfies. And to be perfectly honest, we loved every minute of it.
Blake lively posted a particularly relatable one in December last year, sharing her un-plucked eyebrows and matted hair with the world. Hailey Bieber (the queen of keeping it real) shared a selfie of her pamper session, which included two spot patches on her cheek. Lauren Conrad, famous for her time on glossy pseudo-reality television series The Hills, took a picture on Valentine's Day, featuring her unimpressed, makeup-free face, and her husband in the background bathing their son. Looks about as romantic as our Valentine's Day, Lauren.
And let's face it, while we were sat at our makeshift desks wearing the same outfit we slept in, it was reassuring to scroll through our news feed and see celebrities doing more or less the same thing.
And to our delight, they've kept the no-makeup selfies coming thick and fast - continuing to shun filters for a more real IG presence. Actress Kate Hudson was the latest to do just that, taking the cutest snap of her and her 2-year-old daughter sharing a bath.
She used the story to promote a live she had coming up for her wellness and nutrition brand, InBloom - focusing on "all things Motherhood," and her and 2-year-old Rani's matching grins and topknots were utterly adorable...
Thanks for providing us with the purest picture we'll see all day, Kate and Rani. Oh, and you just inspired us to grab a hair scrunchie and run a bath...
