Fearne Cotton Makes A Stand With A Make-Up Free Selfie

Instagram is all about filtered pictures, clever angles and pretty backdrops, right?

Well, not for Fearne Cotton. Instead, the 34-year-old’s been using her account to make a serious stand against Photoshopping.

Fearne shared an au naturel snap of herself yesterday, which showed her make-up free and with her hair pulled back into loose plaits.

Fearne Cotton made a *brilliant* point with this Instagram selfie


Of course, she looked stunning. But that wasn’t her point.

She captioned the image: ‘Ok let’s reverse this scene. Who is with me? Our social media culture is getting way out of control with filters/editing/perfect snap shots which are leading to acute pin pointing of so called imperfections.

‘I want to celebrate my imperfections and embrace it all. So here I am. No make up, greasy hair, tired mum eye bags, bottom brace, un-plucked brows, and happy. #CelebrateTheImperfect.’

Fearne Cotton is more than happy to tone down the glam for Instagram


Fearne’s fans were quick to praise the mum-of-two’s message.

One commented: ‘You are truly beautiful. What a shining example of how ladies should look. Thank you Fearne for being real xxx,’ while another wrote: ‘I’m with you Fearne.’

This isn’t the first time in recent days that Fearne’s made an effort to be honest with her followers.

Fearne Cotton gave us a look at her braces earlier this week


Earlier this week, she revealed that she’d had braces fitted to her bottom teeth – by posting a shot of herself pointing straight at ’em.

Beside it, she’d jokily written: ‘Teen spirit. #BackToBraces.’

Brilliant. THIS is why we love you, Fearne.
