Back in March, Lorde made headlines when she tweeted two pictures from the same event, one of which exposed her natural skin and another that retouched the blemishes on her face.
The 17-year-old took the opportunity to share an empowering and inspiring message.
“I find this curious – two photos from today, one edited so much so my skin is perfect and one real. Remember flaws are ok,” she wrote.
