Sam captioned the selfie, 'I'm not going to lie.. I spent 10 minutes fiddling around, more contrast, more highlight, less shadow, to try and make the dark circles under my eyes not look so harsh. Then I had the realisation.. that it completely defeats the purpose of posting photos of me, just being me.. So I reverted everything & here's the raw pic.'
It isn't the first time Sam has urged her younger fans to think twice about what "beauty" looks like -- she also posted this make up free pic months ago.
Sam captioned this photo 'I feel very flattered when young girls comment on my photos or send me DM's about how much they look up to me & they want to be as pretty as me. Which is so lovely and adorable, but this is the every day me... no filter, no edits, dark circles, messy hair, break outs, uneven skin tone. And I wouldn't change anything about myself! What you see in magazines & on TV is the result of hours in the makeup chair with very talented H&MU Artist - I've said it before, but it's what I live by... love yourself, be yourself, exactly the way you are xo'
