Grace VanderWaal Posts Selfies With & Without Makeup: 'I'm Just Like You'

Grace VanderWaal makes a powerful point in a raw new Instagram post.

The 13-year-old “Beautiful Thing” singer shared two selfies of herself. In the first, she is totally makeup-free, and in the second she is flaunting a bold lip, mascara, and a full face of makeup.

“We’re all beautiful and human,” she writes.

“I love myself in the first photo and love myself in the second. I cringe a little whenever I post a photo of me with darker eyeliner or something different and I see comments saying ‘I love you without the makeup!’ Because no one on the internet has actually seen me without a stitch of makeup on.”

“What they mean is ‘I love you with your natural makeup on!’” she continues. “I’m just like you. I get pimples and acne on my face, I have tired eyes in the morning, I definitely have my fair share of awkward moments. Love yourself. it’s a hard thing to do, but know that all those girls you wish you looked like, probably look just like you…”

Grace is totally right. What we don’t take into account when following our favorite celebs is their team of make-up artists and stylists who keep them looking perfect at all costs.

    This is also what drives me nuts about all the stupid websites posting ”
    Celebs Without Makeup” slideshows and AT LEAST 80% of them have as much makeup as NORMAL women wear every day. There is a huge difference between NO makeup and “not full on professional Hollywood make up artist” levels of caked up makeup.
