Salma Hayek shares makeup-free selfies in lush garden setting

In what appears to be a makeup-free moment, Salma Hayek Pinault planted her natural look in a garden setting, then posted the results Monday on Instagram — where hashtags and rave reviews bloomed.

"#Happymonday," reads the caption to her first photo, a diptych of a tree with fuzzy branches and bright pink blossoms, and a fresh-faced Hayek Pinault, 49, following her own advice. "This #spring don't forget to #stop and #enjoy the #flowers." The bilingual actress also offered the same advice in Spanish at the end of her caption.

Hayek Pinault seemed to be having a lot more fun with her natural look than the time she was transported to the emergency room in a shirt that made it look like she was au naturel from the waist up.

Back in February, she was treated for what she said was a "minor head injury" while wearing a shirt that she called "completely inappropriate for the hospital." Thankfully, she was able to laugh about it afterward, when she posed in said shirt for a pic with her doctors.
