Mila Kunis had jaws dropping to the floor when she showed off her radiant complexion by going make-up free in a recent photoshoot. The 32-year-old, who posed for the cover of Glamour's August issue, was dazzling in the close-up snap which sees her rocking absolutely no make-up, her glossy hair pulled back into a loose top knot.

The Black Swan actress opened up about the experience of going make-up free, revealing that she rarely wears make-up when she's not on the red carpet.

Mila Kunis went make-up free for the Glamour cover

"I don't wear make-up. I don't wash my hair every day," she told the publication. "It's not something that I associate with myself. I commend women who wake up 30, 40 minutes early to put on eyeliner. I think it's beautiful. I'm just not that person."

She added: "So to go to a shoot and have my make-up artist put on face cream and send me off to do a photo, I was like, 'Well, this makes life easy.' And you're still protected. Nobody's there to make you look bad."

The That 70's Show star, who is married to fellow actor Ashton Kutcher, also spoke candidly about the altering of images of her in the media.

"I hate it," she said. "There was a company that I did a photoshoot for once that manipulated the photo so much, I was like, 'That's not even me.' Like, what's the point? You wanted my name, and then you wanted the version of me that I'm not. I absolutely hate it."

Mila also opened up about the use of photoshop in the media

Mila admitted that although she has insecurities, she would prefer to use good "lighting" to help hide them in photographs. "Now, do I sometimes want them to depuff my eyes? Help me out with a little bit of lighting," she said. "But do I want them to stretch my legs, thin out my waist, curve my hips, elongate my neck, blah, blah, blah? No."

It's no doubt an exciting time for the actress, who is expecting her second child with Ashton. The couple are already proud parents to 20-month-old daughter Wyatt Isabelle. Although Mila has been keeping out of the spotlight in recent years, she has made rare red carpet appearances in recent months as she stars in upcoming comedy Bad Moms.
