Yara Shahidi shares makeup-free selfie with message on accepting her blemishes


ABC/Craig SjodinActress Yara Shahidi recently gave fans a raw, makeup-free look at her skin, and her photos are inspiring many.

The grownish star posted a barefaced selfie Sunday on Instagram, where she’s happily smirking at the camera.

“Happy Sunday from me and my skin that I’ve committed to love in every and all states,” she wrote.

Yara continued, “With travel + work + 24/7 in makeup I have to actively remind myself to not sweat the details (aka the blemishes) and reframe it as a reminder to make sure I’m taking care of myself.”

Immediately after posting, lots of people complimented Shahidi’s transparency and felt empowered by it. The post has received more than 422,000 likes as of Monday afternoon.

“You and your skin are beautiful with or without a stitch of makeup sis,” journalist Elaine Welteroth wrote in a comment.

“I love you, I needed this post,” added actress Janelle Monae. “TY.”

While we don’t always see makeup-free selfies of Shahidi, she’s no stranger to posting great angles of herself.  At the beginning of November, she posted a fun video of herself with rainbow-like eyeshadow.

Also in September, Yara posted a fun photo of her wearing a cosmetic face mask and showing off her voluminous curls.
