We’ve already discussed the merits of celebrities posting no-makeup selfies, but lately, we’ve noticed another Instagram trend on the rise: famous people doing weird beauty things. It started with Kim Kardashian’s now-infamous vampire facial. Then, Coco Rocha shared a selfie wearing what appeared to be 24K gold eye masks. Soon, a number of other actresses, models, and singers followed suit, all posting photos of themselves doing strange things in the name of beauty. What does this mean for us mere mortals? Is this the end of the no-makeup selfie trend? Will J.Lo ever jump on the bandwagon? (Probably not, considering the fact she never ages). Hard to say, but for now, we’re just glad celebs are admitting that even they have to sit back, relax, and channel Hannibal Lector every once in awhile.

Rocha’s tweet that accompanied this photo reads: “Cleopatra slept in a gold mask to maintain her beauty. Supposedly these 24k gold under-eye masks will do the trick.” For what it’s worth, we think they’re working.
At first glance, this looks like something out of one of our strangest nightmares. At second glance, it still looks like something out of one of our strangest nightmares, but decidedly more glamorous considering Rafaeli is involved. Supposedly, Rafaeli is receiving a Caviar and Carat Facial by esthetician Bella Schneider at her LaBelle Day Spas & Salon, which costs around $185—if the end result is skin like Rafaeli’s, we say it’s worth every penny, er, carat.
Gaga calls this her “pre show regime” in the caption—if anyone has any idea what it could possibly be, we would love the memo. For research purposes, obviously.
Even supermodels need to indulge in a good old mud mask every once in awhile—friend optional, but recommended.
One time we saw Kelly Osbourne wearing cloth face masks…so we decided to wear cloth face masks.
Brows bleached, eye masks on—a recipe for the perfect celebrity selfie if there ever was one.
