From Met Gala prep to mental health checks, this week’s best beauty Instagrams ran the gamut from thematic touches to all-out wellness. The former camp featured the likes of Met Gala host Blake Lively, who offered a shoutout to her glam squad—props to makeup artist Kristofer Buckle and hairstylist Jennifer Yepez for the regal results—including nail artist Elle Gerstein, the mind behind Lively’s NYC-architecture-inspired manicure. Tracee Ellis Ross showed off her own kind of crown, her cloud of curls artfully framing a sun-kissed complexion, as elsewhere, Lily Allen celebrated her birthday with a towel-clad mirror selfie featuring a nude manicure and sky-reaching lashes.

Justine Skye blinked past a light-catching eye makeup moment (think gold shadow and crystalline touches); Nicola Peltz did at-home-’80s with an abundance of blush and a French manicure; and Ashley Graham adorned her freckled face with subtle, impactful touches (“brows brushed, lashes lifted, eyes lined, mind set, heart open,” she captioned). And finally, Selena Gomez honored Mental Health Awareness Month with a commitment to kinder self-talk, patience with herself, and letting emotions pass—along with a message of encouragement for followers seeking to share their own struggles. Whether it’s a look born of a beauty team or a want of mental health awareness, it’s helpful to remember that we’re in this together.
