Kelsea Ballerini Keeps it Real With Unvarnished, Makeup-Free Photo
While most of us know at heart that our favorite stars rely on a lot of help to look glamorous and beautiful, it's still nice to have a reminder now and again that this is the case.
Kelsea Ballerini, who is gorgeous by anyone's standards, posted a video of her post-show skincare routine with fans on Saturday (June 30), stripping off all her makeup and ending with a photo of her "reality no filter" look, complete with visible acne. She explained that she decided to share this to give a genuine glimpse into her life—not just the usual series of curated images social media cultivates.
"I’m a girly girl and I love getting dressed up and playing in makeup and feeling like Beyoncé," she noted. "BUT. I also love not depending on those things for my self worth. I realize a lot of the time our Social Media accounts are our highlight reels, but I really want to give you a genuine look at my real life on here. And while part of it is glittery and airbrushed, The other part is this!"
Fans responded appreciatively, with many expressing how they considered Ballerini just as beautiful without makeup. "Love to see that your ok with being YOU and it helps me feel a little bit better about myself," one fan wrote. "Please keep letting these young girls know that perfection is an illusion," wrote another.
Ballerini kicked off her stint as Keith Urban’s special guest on the GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR June 15 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO, and she'll be supporting him through November 3 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.
