Celebrities get a bad rep for being unrelatable, but there’s nothing like a stay-at-home order to showcase how human they really are. From bare-faced selfies and a peek into their kitchens to tips on how to deal with inevitable grays, some of our favorite A-listers are making quarantine a little bit easier.

Glam Squads Went Goodbye
Eva Mendes traded her professional makeup artist for an in-house glam squad: her two little girls, Esmeralda and Amada. “They won,” she captioned her colorful makeover. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey put her cosmetology background to use on daughter Monroe, captioning the video, “Passing time in quarantine…My 500 hours of beauty school came in handy!”


Celebrities Became Teachers
Everyone from Priyanka Chopra Jonas to Selena Gomez did their part in educating their millions of Instagram followers with the #SafeHands challenge, teaching viewers the proper way to thoroughly wash their hands. Chopra Jonas even shared a fitting song, courtesy of her Jonas Brother husband, to ensure the CDC-recommended 20-second wash each time.

Gray Hair Is Officially IN
Eva Longoria Baston, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kelly Ripa and other A-listers reminded us that grays don’t care if you’re famous. While many decided to embrace their silver strands, Longoria Baston decided to cover up her roots at home with help from L’Oréal’s Excellence Créme—and took us along for the ride.

Sweat Sessions Became Therapy Sessions
Fitness enthusiast Kyle Richards told us exercise plays a huge role in alleviating her anxiety, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t need a little motivation to keep at it. “I have a Peloton group of friends, and we take a class together every day from our homes. It really helps and we help push each other.” Celebrities including Jessica Alba and Julianne Hough helped to keep us motivated to get a sweat sesh in, too.

Hello #QuaranColor
Meticulously painted highlights were covered with rainbow-bright dye during quarantine. Taraji P. Henson opted for a fiery-red hue, Hilary Duff went for a bright turquoise and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s choice proved that rose-gold hair will never go out of style.

Bare Skin Was Celebrated
After being covered in heavy makeup virtually every day, celebrities embraced the opportunity to let their skin breathe and put makeup on the backburner—even on social media!
