You may best known Katherine Webb from her appearance at the the BCS Championship football game in 2013 (where an announcer’s comments about her looks went viral) or from her role as Miss Alabama — both of which required a truly impressive amount of makeup. But Webb is ready to show another side of herself: a more low-key, makeup-free side, as she posted on Instagram Wednesday.

“Feeling confident enough today to post this, finally. I have quite a few imperfections too!,” she wrote. But wait, there’s more: “Grew up feeling insecure and self-conscious about my skin and the white patches that cover half my body, but I don’t care what people think anymore. I just had to get really good at doing makeup 😜💋💄 ‘That’s why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me.’ -Kevin Aucoin (celebrity makeup artist).”

PHOTOS: Would you wear these denim trends?

The star has made no secret of working hard for her looks, but now we know she’s naturally gorgeous too. And she joins a growing group of stars who have shared photos of themselves on social media while at their most intimate, from Cameron Diaz to Rihanna to Selena Gomez to (most recently) Bethenny Frankel.

What do you think of this makeup-free selfie trend? General thoughts?

She looks much better without makeup. Very pretty!

Nikki on

Star? Who is she? Definitely looks better without the three inches of make-up. Natural and younger.

Guest on

She looks great both ways, which is awesome.

ShaSha on

She still has makeup on, just not the whole shebang; you can clearly see her eyebrows are filled in. I don’t understand why people can’t be honest with themselves.

Choi on

Wow you guys really think that’s bare faced? She has on light foundation and has filled her eye brows but yes she looks pretty.

ams on

and she’s still gorgeous

Stephanie on

Very pretty without makeup, but let’s be honest, it looks like there is also some botox, brow dying and lip injection involved. Not that it matters, but I don’t believe this is completely ‘natural.’ And peels will do wonders for clear skin.

Lala on

I cannot get over how different her nose looks, with makeup! She looks even more beautiful without makeup. Her eyes are larger, and brighter!

TT on

She looks beautiful both ways.

She looks great with or without pancake face. God. I hate this woman.
