Have you ever wondered why your makeup selfies don't look as good as the celebrities and influencers on your feed?
It's simply because most of us don't have access to professional lighting and don't have the time or patience to play around with filters of editing apps.
Thankfully there are celebrities like Selena Gomez who aren't afraid to show what their makeup actually looks like in real life with natural lighting and without any effects.
We've all been there, when you're really feeling your makeup look and have to take a picture there and then. It might help to know that even Selena is the same as us.
In a new selfie posted to Instagram, Selena was clearly loving her pink lip and smoky winged liner so much she had to snap a picture there and then in the car.
The person responsible for Selena's look was her regular makeup artist, Melissa Murdick, who has worked with her on everything from magazine covers to music videos.
Obviously Selena is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but it's so refreshing to see that just like us she has natural skin texture.
All those filters and all that lighting can make you feel like you're the only person in the world with pores, but that is literally not the case.
The more people like Selena normalise natural skin textures, the better. So next time you post your fire makeup selfie don't even think about downloading FaceTune.
