Another week of summer brought another week of scroll-stopping celebrity beauty looks. As some Tinseltown ladies are beginning to take on the #2020challenge, others are still basking in the palettes that allow them to show off their melanin richness.
And with travel slightly picking back up, some of our favorite beauties have escaped to their distant happy places. The result is selfies of their happy place looks, filled with dramatic eyelashes, colorful lips and gorgeous skin glowing with perfection.
Check out the gallery below to see which queens made us feel vindicated in our Insta-stalking. They just look that good.
