“I woke up for this”
It is not the first time actors have shared images on social media of themselves without make-up.
Holly Willoughby, Susanna Reid, and Kirstie Allsopp are just some of the additional TV presenters who have submitted make-up free images on Instagram.
Trend of Posting Pictures
The trend to post pictures is also popular with artists in the US. Celebrities stateside posting photos that are unfiltered include Tyra Banks, Alicia Keys, and Cameron Diaz.
A favorite hashtag often accompanying these make-up free images is #NoFilter, although model and TV presenter Tyra Banks warned in a post she discussed in 2015 about the usage of the term.
“You know how folks say #nofilter but you know there’s a freaking filter on their pic? Or maybe there is a smidge of saying it’s real & all raw and retouching going on but they’re lying? Well, this morn, I chose to offer you a taste of the very real me,” she explained from the post that has been liked over 216,000 times.
Last year Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley also issued a warning concerning the pressure to appear great on social media when she posted a photograph along with the words, “I woke up for this #nofilter #nomakeup” written on it.
She explained: “Social media is great but also a little frightening ’cause what folks post is the most filtered, most carefully chosen and cleverly edited moments of their lives.”
