Martha Stewart has done it again. After her accidental thirst trap by the pool went viral last summer, she surprised fans with a new one late Friday afternoon - then promptly deleted it.

In the photo, which has since been removed from her page, Stewart wears a full face of make-up, including brown eyeshadow, eyelash extensions, nude lipstick, and some highlighter. She's also making her signature pout, the same facial expression she had in the accidental pool selfie.

Stewart revealed in the caption that her longtime make-up artist, Nicole Daisy Toye, had put together the smokey-eye look for a photoshoot.

At the time Insider viewed the post, before it was removed, the comments section was already lit up with Stewart's 1.2 million followers showering compliments on her.

"Martha! These thirst traps are crushing the internet!" one person wrote.

"MARTHA STEWART you are so gorgeous omg!!!!! You didn't have to make us all look bad like that!!!!!" another said.

Toye later shared what appeared to be the same photo of Stewart's latest look on her own Instagram page but didn't share any details about the products they used. That post, too, has since been removed.

However, in an older post showing off another of Stewart's looks, Toye listed Maybelline mascara, Urban Decay eye shadow, and Laura Mercier as some of their "favorite products."

It is unclear if any of those products went into creating Stewart's latest smokey eye thirst-trap look.

Toye didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

The key to recreating Stewart's look? Good quality makeup and lighting

Toye has worked with Stewart for over 10 years, and people really want to know what make-up she uses for the 79-year-old celebrity chef and lifestyle guru.

In a December story about how Stewart "stays Zoom-ready," Rory Satran of The Wall Street Journal wrote that Toye gets "bombarded" with messages from people who want to copy Stewart's look. Toye said she always recommends the same four things: plenty of sunscreen and good quality foundation, bronzer, and blush.

The "secret sauce" for looking good on camera, Satran added, is having a good LED ring light handy, like Toye and Stewart do.

Stewart's typical routine involves drug-store eyeliner, green juice, and the occasional filler

In November, Stewart told People Magazine that she's never had a face-lift but does get fillers "maybe twice a year."

And her dermatologist told Elle's Chloe Hall in July that a good diet helps support Stewart's youthful skin, saying the celebrity chef "eats incredibly healthy" and "starts every morning with a green juice" (which has been part of Stewart's daily routine since at least 2012).

In the same interview, the dermatologist revealed that Stewart also relies on serum, sheet masks, drug-store eyeliner, and sunscreen.

Stewart is no stranger to thirst traps, although she only recently figured out what they are

In July, Stewart's sultry pool selfie went viral and was instantly labeled a thirst trap many times over.

Months later, she revealed that she hadn't even meant to take a selfie at all.

"I was trying to take a picture of the beautiful turquoise planter at the end of the pool, but the camera was on me, so I just snapped it. It looked so good, so I posted it," she told People Magazine.

"I didn't know what a 'thirst trap' was, but now I do," she added, mentioning that she was on the hunt for her next thirst trap.

Does the new, sadly deleted smokey-eye selfie count? Stewart's legion of fans sure seemed to think so.
