Rihanna is greeting a new decade in the best way: with a bare face.

The singer and founder of Fenty Beauty decided to forgo her makeup collection for her first selfie of the decade and fans are here for it. Along with her no-highlighter-required glow, her skin comes complete with a very refreshing, real-person blemish near her jawline

While all many of us can fixate on is her baby-soft skin—countless fans continue to sing her praises in the comments—one commenter so kindly decided to bring attention to the zit, commenting: “Let me pop your pimple.” In true Rihanna fashion, the 31-year-old replied with the perfect response: “Let her have her shine, PLEASE.”

Meanwhile on Twitter, more fans share their thoughts on the photo—this time, convinced it’s a teaser for something huge. “Rihanna’s putting this pic with a pimple and some months later she will release Fenty Skin and prove how it cleared this pimple. A smart businesswoman, I stan,” one Twitter user wrote of the photo. Another user Tweeted: “Fenty Skin is beta testing I see.” 

Will 2020 be the year of Fenty Skin Care? Only time will tell. Until then, fingers crossed.
