Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift—known for their distinct individual styles and epic friendship— recently delighted fans with a mesmerizing joint selfie. The iconic pair posed with little to no makeup, revealing their natural beauty, which has garnered admiration and adoration from fans who can’t seem to get enough of the picture.
On September 16th, Gomez, 31, shared a snap with Swift in which the Rare Beauty mogul went makeup-free. The “Anti-Hero” hitmaker, 33, opted for subtle black eyeliner, mascara, rosy blush and a touch of pink lipstick for the shot, matching her friend’s effortlessly chic style.

Gomez captioned the post for her 430 million followers: “Thas my best frien -she a real bad.” The two posed in front of a waterfront dining area and appeared to have been soaking up the last moments of summer before welcoming autumn. Fans headed to the upload’s comment section to share their thoughts.
“This pic just screamed the most successful, powerful and iconic woman duo to ever exist,” one wrote as another added: “two pretty best friends.” Someone else replied: “”The best duo on the planet!”
Gomez often blesses her fans with stunning au naturel selfies as well as all-glammed-up moments. This also isn’t the first time that she has taken to social media to honor her and Swift’s longtime (and adorable) friendship of almost two decades.
As both Selenators and Swifties know, the pair go way back. The “Single Soon” singer and “Bejeweled” songwriter have been friends since 2008, having met through the Jonas Brothers. “We actually dated the Jonas Brothers together! It was hysterical,” Gomez told KISS FM UK in 2017.
“It was amazing, because [Taylor] was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and the cowboy boots. And I was definitely up-and-coming, and we just clicked,” Gomez said — before jokingly adding, “It was the best thing we got out of those relationships.”
Since then, the beautiful selfies and social media birthday shoutouts shared by Gomez and Swift have set the bar for bestie goals, with their joint award show premiere looks and unwavering support for each other’s music careers only adding to their inspiring friendship.
Additional moments that captured our hearts include Gomez surprising Swift’s fans during her Reputation Tour, Gomez’s appearance in Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, Swift joining Gomez on her cooking show, and the duo creating endearing TikToks together.
