With lockdown removing literally all semblance of a social life from our festive schedules this year (remember office Christmas buffets and all the other un-COVID-safe things we did?), there has never been fewer opportunities to whack out the lipstick or put on a face of glam.
And I don't know about you, but I've started to feel more than a little bit nostalgic for the days of whacking on a sparkly gold eye and falsies every weekend in December.
That said, Kim Kardashian has come to my rescue this morning with a bedtime selfie that reminded me of the sliiight pros that lockdowns have brought in the form of lessened pressure to use makeup every day, and plenty of time to dedicate to skincare schedules.
In the shot, which Kim posted to her grid earlier today, she can be seen lying in bed with pal La La Anthony, totally barefaced, skincare applied, and without any obvious filters, meaning she looks totally au naturel (there's even a little - gasp - skin texture there).
Makeup-free selfies and real skin texture selfies have really taken off in the celeb world during 2020, with contributions from Selena Gomez, Hailey Bieber, Ashanti, Kylie Jenner, Lady Gaga and beyond. And while makeup is a many splendored thing, it's endlessly reassuring to see that the glamorous faces from our Instagram feeds are the results of a combination of hours of glam, ring-lights, filters and great angles.
...That said, I'd like to order one tall glass of Kim Kardashian's dermatological health please, because, wow...
Long may both her high-glam selfies and chilling-in-bed shots reign supreme.
