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.

Yesterday was Grace VanderWaal‘s dog’s first birthday, and the “Moonlight” singer celebrated the occasion in style.

There was a homemade cake covered with popcorn and milkbones on a “You are special today” plate, multiple wrapped gifts, party snacks, and a “Birthday Boy” bib for her little one, Frankie, to rock.

“My baby boy is 1yo today,” Grace captioned three pictures hilariously detailing the over-the-top party. She also posed for an adorable picture with Frankie.


Happy birthday, Frankie! See how much the pug has grown in a year.

And when your pet’s bday comes around… well, the stakes have been raised. We will leave it at that.

Grace VanderWaal hugs her puppy Frankie tight during her visit to Q102 in Philadelphia, Penn., on Tuesday afternoon (August 29).

The singer performed a few songs for a small audience at the studio.

Earlier, Grace opened up about her forthcoming album, saying that she’s been “writing left and right” for it, and we’ll see all her hard work in November, when it comes out.

She also opened up about how her latest single, “Sick of Being Told”, was born.

“I remember I had a writing session that day with a producer, One Love, and I was kind of going on a rant (about how my team passed on an idea for the “Moonlight” video),” she shares.

Grace adds, “I was like, ‘I’m so sick of it.’ I’ve done all these things, and so many people have told me, ‘No, you’ll fail. You’ll end your career. You’ll get voted off.’ And I do it and it works great.”

You wouldn’t have known it by looking at her and watching her on stage yesterday, but Grace VanderWaal was actually really nervous for her America’s Got Talent return!

The reigning champ hit the Dolby Theatre stage in Hollywood to perform her song “Moonlight”, and killed it obviously, but she was a bundle of nerves backstage.

“You know when you smell that familiar smell? And it’s that weird feeling in your stomach where you’re trying to remember that smell?” Grace recalled to USA TODAY.


“Then it’s just a green air of anxiety just filling out my lungs. That’s what it’s like.”

Grace added later, “I’m just praying to God it went well on TV.”

Girl, you killed it!
