Millie Bobby Brown showed off her radiant, makeup-free face in an unfiltered photo on Wednesday — before showing how much a filter can transform someone’s face.

Her textured hair swept over her shoulders and chest and was styled in a center parting with dark roots.
The Netflix star labeled each of the snapshots, writing “filter” on one and “no filter” on the other.
She wore two pairs of small, silver earrings in her ears, with a larger size in the first hole.

It’s not the first time the artist has made a statement against conventional beauty expectations.
While playing the character Eleven in her popular sci-fi series, she publicly spoke about her character’s shaved head.
“I hope I inspire people… it’s really cool to have short hair,” she told People.
