Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at Cannes Film Festival last year

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has long been hailed as one of the most beautiful women in the music industry (I mean, just look at her!) with her looks earning her countless accolades, campaigns and affections since she shot to fame in the early noughties. However, the 31-year-old songstress has proved that her beauty isn't just make-up deep with this completely barefaced, 100% natural snap which has us crying out with joy and simultaneously weeping at the same time... 

Taking to her Instagram account, the Fight For This Love singer shared this photograph of herself — sans styled hair and make-up — that, needless to say, she still looks incredible in.

Rocking a towel as a 'do and sporting a fluffy dressing gown, Cheryl said of the pic: 'My dad is making me post this picture bc he said I am the double of my nana (his mother) when she was my age, and has a photo just like this but with a scarf on her head... So here you go'. 

Those are some GOOD genes you've inherited there, Chezza! 

It looks like someone should be given top marks for their skincare routine, as Cheryl's flawless complexion can only be directly attributed to a strategic cleansing, toning and moisturising regime. With a gorgeous glowing skintone, next to no lines and not a dark circle in sight if this doesn't make you want to take better care of your skin, well, this lot might just do it... 

Joining Cheryl in the makeup-free revolution are a host of other A-listers who are giving barefaced beauty a very good name. Here are 4 other reasons to give your make-up a miss:


Miranda Kerr's Yoga Glow
The model and mother-of-one clearly takes her yoga very seriously (well, have you seen those abs?), travelling to Mexico to stay in a yoga centre. And we've never seen Miranda look better.

Jessica Alba's Goddess-Worthy Glow
She may have been filming in Thailand at the time but Jessica Alba's glowing skin is the stuff that beauty dreams are made of. Get her fresh-faced look by ditching the foundation for a few days and switching it with a high SPF facial sun tan lotion with gradual tan built in.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Rosey Hue
Gwynnie has long championed the benefits of a healthy, organic lifestyle and it looks like her hard work is really paying off in the barefaced stakes. Try switching up your diet by drinking water and fruit juice instead of fizzy drinks and alcohol for one week and we bet you'll start to see results. Once you're hooked, upping your fruit and veg intake will also help to keep your skin beautifully clear. 

Kendall Jenner's Overall Youthful Visage
