Janet Jackson generally keeps her fans in the loop on Instagram, and recently shared another interesting update.

The “That’s the Way Love Goes” hitmaker posted a photo of herself that saw the icon captured from extremely close up, showcasing her stunning features. The beauty shot saw Jackson slightly side-on, displaying the details of the makeup on her face. She wore her dark curly locks down and appeared to be sporting a black item of clothing. Jackson’s soft skin was clearly glowing, and the singer was evidently photographed under great lighting.

The “Someone to Call My Lover” songstress rocked a matte lip and smiled subtly in the shot. She applied shimmery gold eyeshadow and black mascara, which made her eyes pop. Her signature black beauty mark above her lip stood out, as did her incredible bone structure and jawline.

For the attached caption, Jackson wrote “peace” in spaced-out capital letters, followed with a black heart emoji.

She tagged her makeup artist, Preston, who helped her achieve this glammed-up look, as well as the brands that she used — Tom Ford Beauty, Make Up For Ever, MAC Cosmetics, and Lise Watier Cosmétiques.

In the span of about 19 hours, her post racked up more than 106,000 likes and over 2,500 comments, proving to be a hit with her nearly 4 million followers.

“The perfect way to end such a fabulous year for u and the team. PEACE. Thank u for sharing it with the fans,” one user wrote.

“OMG…we ALLLLLL know that Janet Jackson is beautiful…but on this Monday morning. I really enjoy seeing this simple picture of beauty. Thank you!” another admirer shared.

When it comes to her image, Jackson has been keeping it fairly simple this year. The “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” chart-topper toured across Australia alongside the Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Jason Derulo, Brandy, Sisqo, Keri Hilson, and J-Kwon, and uploaded numerous photos of herself from the tour. On stage, she had worn a loose-fitted black jumpsuit that had little jewels embroidered on the top half. Despite being completely covered up in black attire, she added some color to her makeup and rocked a red lip. The 53-year-old sported her curly locks down — and also proved that her career is still in demand many decades later — during this tour.
