Cortese's gorgeous, chocolate brown hair was straightened and tumbled over her shoulders, reaching all the way down to her stomach. Her face was perfectly made up, with her eyes seemingly lined with dark eyeliner and mascara. Her eyebrows appeared to be expertly shaped and darkened with an eyebrow pencil. It looked like she wore a nude-colored lipstick and subtle blush to accent her master contouring.
Cortese stood in front of a full-length mirror, apparently in her room. Behind her, a vanity with a triple mirror with products laid out on top was visible. She rocked a kimono-style, silky robe covered in a cherry blossom print. She held the robe closed in the front with one hand. The robe was short enough that her slim, lengthy legs were on full display.In the caption, Cortese said that she hadn't done her makeup and hair for months, so she took the pic to document her done-up self. Within three hours, the post had accumulated over 36,000 likes and more than 250 comments. In the comments section, fans gushed about how amazing the Jersey Shore star looked.
"You're so beautiful with or without makeup!" one person commented.
"Deena you are sooo damn Gorgeous," said another Instagram user.
A few of Cortese's Jersey Shore Family Vacation co-stars also chimed in to compliment her.
The new selfie was a treat for Cortese's followers because the reality star rarely posts sexy pictures of herself on her Instagram account. Most of the photos on her feed are of her absolutely adorable son, CJ, who she had just over a year ago with her husband, Christopher Bruckner, according to MTV.
However, Cortese has shared a few pictures of herself since quarantine began a few months ago. At the end of May, she posted a pic of herself wearing a skimpy, sheer pink negligee. In the caption, she joked that she'd gotten her curves back after being in quarantine, implying that she'd put on a few pounds while stuck at home.
Cortese has also blessed her followers with a couple of bathing suit shots in the past couple of weeks. In one, she wore a one-piece suit and joked about her "thick thighs." In another, she wore a one-piece swimsuit with cutouts on the side as she lounged across two deck chairs, watching CJ play outside.
