    Instagram is great for many things, but the best part of the social media app? Celebrating natural beauty, namely our fave celebrities without make-up.

    We get to see them on the red carpet all dolled up, but without the help of their professional glam squads, the stars usually like to hang out sans makeup. And just like the rest of us, they’re prone to capturing their natural beauty in a whole new light too (as well as a few choice filters, of course).

    Taken post workout, just before bed, or after a thorough spa routine, the stars love to show off their fresh faces to fans. and we love seeing them.

    Looking for a moisturiser that will give you flawless, selfie-ready skin? Take this quiz to find out which one suits your skin type!

    Beyonce definitely looks #flawless with her natural curls, and perfect complexion. She isn’t afraid to snap away both at home and on stage, with her Sasha Fierce stare also coming through in her makeup-free selfie.

    Gwyneth Paltrow happily posts cute selfies with her daughter Apple too. In honour of #girlsday, she decided to forego the usual eyeliner, with her natural beauty shining through. She then showed off her makeup-free beauty once again on her 44th birthday. No wonder she won People’s Most Beautiful Woman in 2013.

    Then there are the super models, who look super simply grocery shopping. The key? Looking after their skin. ‘I know it sounds cliche, but honestly, if you want clear skin, you have to drink lots of water’, says Victoria’s Secret model, Jessica Hart. ‘That, and keep your moisturiser in the fridge. It helps to depuff and inflammation.’

    And although Kylie Jenner’s makeup obsession is well-documented, she looks just as great, we think, without her glam on. Her big sister Kim Kardashian happily takes her make-up off too. Even if it is in front of personal make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic, as seen by his Instagram picture.

    So which beauty look do you prefer? Au naturel or glammed-up star? Us? We love our celebrities without make-up either way…
