I ditched my heavy makeup, false lashes & bleached hair – people say I’m a total natural beauty & look 10 years younger

A WOMAN who had the ultimate make under has been inundated with praise online – with everyone saying she looks 10 years younger.

Heather Lee, who was a Miss USA 2022 contestant, explained how she ditched her fake eyelashes and bleached blonde hair in favour of a more low-key look.

She penned: “POV: You quit bleaching your hair, wearing heavy makeup/fake eyelashes, and getting lip injections.”

The beauty participated in the viral social media trend which sees people show what they looked like when they decided to stop applying heavy makeup.

While it’s clear to see Heather looked stunning before, people were left stunned when she decided to embrace a much more natural look.

In the first snap, she can be seen with bleached blonde hair, false lashes and very plump lips, before then revealing what she looks like with brunette locks and minimal make-up.

She captioned the post: “Reminder: You’re beautiful just the way you are.”

It wasn’t long before the post garnered a staggering 586k views, with social media users all quick to take to the comments section to note how much younger Heather now looks.
