Lucy Hale has nothing to hide—literally and figuratively. After seven years on “Pretty Little Liars,” the 28-year-old actress has bared every detail, secret, and skeleton in front of audiences, and now, she’s taking that transparency to her Instagram feed.
On Monday, the “Life Sentence” star posted a no-makeup selfie sure to stop you in your tracks. (Or at least pause your Instagram scrolling.) The stunning, makeup-free picture showed Hale outside with wild, tousled red hair and a face bare of any makeup. But aside rom Hale’s wavy, just-left-the-beach lob, the real stars of the Instagram were her dark circles and unconcealed eyes.
Without a drop of makeup on her face, Hale gave her a followers a full glimpse of her under-eye area—because, hey, celebrities have dark circles and eye bags, too. The makeup-free shot inspired dozens of Hale’s followers to write comments like “never wear makeup again” and “natural beauty.”
