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).”
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.
