Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous costumes and over-the-top beauty styles, so it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that somewhere — underneath all the glitter and sequins and ridiculous outfits — there’s a beautiful 29-year-old woman!
But Mother Monster reminded us that she’s totally stunning (inside and out) by posting a mostly makeup-free selfie on Instagram!

Obviously she isn’t totally without makeup — she even credited her makeup artist in the caption — but still… Her toned down, fresh-faced look is certainly a breath of fresh air compared to how we usually see Gaga!
In the past, the Grammy winner explained she feels the most confident in her own skin when it’s accompanied by an extravagant get-up.

“Everybody always laughs because I feel so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on my whole body and paint on my face,” she told Glamour in October 2013.
“Sometimes I try really hard to take it all off. But inevitably what’s underneath is still not a straight edge. And I don’t think it ever will be.”

While we don’t know what she’s talking about — what’s underneath is totally gorg — we’re going to pass on some words that really helped us embrace our ~natural~ beauty: You’re beautiful in your own way, because God makes no mistakes, you’re on the right track, baby, you were born this way!
