Nia Long left millions of her followers speechless on Tuesday, Jan. 4, after welcoming the new year with a selfie.
In the Instagram post, the actress, who appeared to be relaxing at home while wearing a brown fuzzy hat, served nothing but face as she smiled for the camera.
As for makeup, Long kept it casual by only wearing lip gloss. In addition to the image, the 51-year-old captioned the post, “Hello 2022.” As fans began to view Long’s photo, many were mesmerized by the actress’ beauty. An individual went as far as mentioning how the “Best Man” star’s freckles and eyes captivated their attention.
“Face card valid.”
“You are so damn naturally beautiful that’s what I’m talking about.”
“How can one person be so pretty.”
“I guess you just gonna be fine forever, huh.”
“It’s the freckles and sparking eyes for me.”
Among the compliments, others brought Long’s youthful appearance. One wrote, “You’re getting younger with each year, beautiful!” Another said, “Looking like you drank from the fountain of youth!!” An Instagram user even questioned if the star ages. They stated, “Beautiful, do you even age?”
In the past, Long disclosed the secrets behind her ageless features. During an interview with New Beauty, the actress listed her mom as one of the contributing factors. She told the publication in 2014, “My mother, she blessed me with good skin. She’s in her late 60s and looks amazing — I hope to look as good as her.”
Long also claimed that using natural-based products on her skin while incorporating a balanced diet has helped her maintain her glow.
She said, “I think natural is better. That’s not to say that I don’t like nice things when it comes to looking and feeling good, but I do think that natural-based products work best for my skin. I was raised a vegetarian and have always eaten pretty healthy. When you feel good on the inside, you feel good on the outside too — I’m all about a full mind, body, soul, and wellness connection.”
