Shakira doesn't share much about her private life on social media, and definitely not as regularly as other celebrities do. She is one of the most followed singers in the world on platforms like Facebook and Instagram, but she usually reserves her posts to promoting her music, her tours, or some other type of business venture. On the rare occasion that she does share a photo of herself, she leaves her fans in awe with her natural beauty. 

The Colombian star has transformed so much over the years and looks almost like a different person from when her career started in the '90s. Her hair and her style might be different, but she is as beautiful now as ever before! No matter how much time has passed since we first met her all those years go, it definitely looks like the Grammy winner has not aged one bit since.

Fans love seeing these small glimpses of the star on Instagram, especially when she shares gorgeous selfies. No one can resist a good filter, not even Shakira, but seeing her share makeup-free pics really proves that she is absolutely timeless. It's rare to see her with a full face of glam, and she almost always rocks her hair in her pretty, natural curls.

It's so refreshing to see a star who is as big as she is be so down to earth and not afraid to show her real self to the world. And that real self is honestly just so stunning. Scroll through to see some of the most beautiful selfies Shakira has shared on Instagram over the years. 

Shakira looked beautiful in a selfie she shared in October 2019. 1

She was all dolled up for a press tour, wearing her hair in a half-up, half-down style that really looked great on her.

Staring at the sun. Shak

A post shared by Shakira (@shakira) on

Any pro selfie taker knows that anywhere near the window is the prime spot for taking a good selfie. It allows you to get the best sunlight and a natural filter for your pic. 

She also takes selfies during her day-to-day mom duties. 16

She definitely could pass as someone in her 20s in this photo. She snapped this pic at her kids' school--just like any regular mom would do, right?
