By now, we're used to the constant stream of flawlessly manicured images in our Instagram feeds. Filters, photoshop, professional makeup — not to mention the hundreds of behind-the-scenes retakes that never see the light of day — all promote unachievable perfection.

So it's pretty damn refreshing when women in the media spotlight aren't afraid to drop that facade and show the world what they really look like, sans makeup artist, sans hair stylist.

Read on to let these ladies, and their perfect imperfections, inspire you to stop hiding yours.
