AceShowbiz - Ciara is using her Instagram account to urge people to love the real version of themselves. Throwing away her usual glam side, The "Level Up" singer posted on Monday, April 22 on the photo-sharing platform her "rawest" selfie as she went bare-faced.
The 33-year-old beauty ditched makeup as well as hair extensions as she attempted to show the "vulnerable" side of hers to her online devotees. "No makeup. No extensions. Vulnerable. My Beauty Marks and all. The real me.. and I love it. Finally embracing myself fully! It feels good," so she wrote in the caption.
The singer also urged her fans to join her in the project. "Csquad! Join me in my #BeautyMarks journey and upload your rawest selfies at onlyciara.com/beautymarks. Don't be afraid to let YOUR Beauty Marks show!" she went on saying. By uploading their "rawest selfies," fans will be given a chance to be featured in a "special project" for her new album, "Beauty Marks", which drops on May 10.
Fans were raving about her natural beauty in the comment section. "Still gorgeous inside and out. Love you so much," one of them said. Another fan added, "No make up needed. I think women pressure other women into thinking they need make up. Lol she looks like money."
"Gorgeous either way thank you for sharing your vulnerability with us. In a world where a certain look, body type, or filters are deemed favorable it is always refreshing to remind ourselves that we are created differently and beautifully without the enhancements," another fan wrote, echoing the singer's sentiment.
The wife of Russell Wilson recently performed at "Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration" which aired on Sunday. Ciara surprised everyone as she cosplayed Rick James in beaded Mary Jane Girls braids and a skintight spacesuit onesie. She drove the audience wild as she offered a stunning performance, belting out a medley of James' most popular street songs.
Ken Ehrlich, the Grammys' television producer who oversaw the all-star event, previously revealed to Yahoo Entertainment that the sexy tribute was Ciara's idea. "Everybody thinks of Motown in the '60s, the original Motown, that Motown era. When you hear the word 'Motown,' you think about the Four Tops, the Temptations, Stevie [Wonder], and Smokey [Robinson]," he explained. "But then in the '70s and '80s, it changed. In the '70s, there were some really great things that they did."
