Beyoncé goes make-up free in new Instagram photos

Barefaced Beyoncé let her natural beauty shine through in a series of new Instagram photos.

On Wednesday the pop superstar shared two make-up free photos of herself, which went down a storm with her millions of fans.

In one picture, the playful mum-of-one is seen lying in bed, smiling and holding her arm over the face. The candid snap quickly earned more than 595,000 likes from her followers, as well as thousands of comments.

The other snap is a close-up of the 32-year-old, showing a lock of the singer's golden hair swept across her face.

Beyoncé caused a stir earlier in the week, following her performance at the Grammy Awards with husband, Jay Z.

Showing off her super slender figure in a revealing black thong and a sheer bodysuit, the former Destiny's Child star performed a raunchy rendition of her hit Drunk In Love.

Beyoncé, who last month completed a 22-day vegan diet challenge with her rapper husband, debuted her flat midriff and slender legs in the sheer ensemble with a glittering bra and crystal-embellished fishnets.

In contrast to the new all-natural photos, Texas-born Beyoncé looked sexy with her short locks in a wet hair-do, along with a smokey-eye effect, as she completed a sexy dance routine on a rotating chair.
