Selena Gomez and NikkieTutorials teamed up for a YouTube video this weekend.

The YouTuber, whose real name is Nikkie de Jager, uploaded a video to her channel on Sunday titled "Get Glam With SELENA GOMEZ & Me!" The video details Gomez's new cosmetics line, Rare Beauty, and also references de Jager's new eye-shadow palette with Beauty Bay.

But unlike typical celebrity-influencer collaborations created in the same space, Gomez and de Jager filmed their video from two separate locations.

Tea Spill, a YouTube drama account, praised the video from Gomez and de Jager on Twitter. 

"Queens of responsible collabs during a pandemic and setting a good example for their fans," they wrote.

The tweet, which has now been liked more than 10,000 times, received responses from other Twitter users who applauded the collaboration and dubbed de Jager as the "only unproblematic" beauty YouTuber.

While Gomez and de Jager did not say why they filmed the video from separate locations, the two stars do live on different continents — North America and Europe — making it difficult for them to travel during the pandemic. 

It's also likely that Gomez is social distancing to protect herself from the virus, as she was diagnosed with lupus in 2015.

Others said YouTubers and TikTok stars could learn from Gomez and de Jager's recent video

On Twitter, some people compared Gomez and de Jager's collaboration to videos recently posted by YouTuber James Charles, who has filmed with Emma Chamberlain, JoJo Siwa, Doja Cat, and numerous TikTok stars in recent weeks.

Approximately two weeks before Charles published his video featuring Doja Cat, the musician revealed in a series of tweets that she had tested positive for coronavirus. She also said in her July tweets that she no longer had the virus, and was "never" scared of COVID-19.

Other social-media stars have used their platforms to share videos of massive parties held in the midst of the pandemic.

TikTokers Bryce Hall and Blake Gray, for example, were recently charged in Los Angeles after throwing parties "that the city attorney said violated COVID-19 guidelines in Los Angeles County, where COVID-19 cases have continued to rise throughout the summer," as Insider's Kat Tenbarge reported.
