Susanna Reid has been praised by fans after sharing a make-up free photo on Instagram. The Good Morning Britain presenter posted a side-by-side comparison of her face before and after make-up in a bid to encourage others to be confident in their own skin.

In the left side of the photo Susanna unveiled her natural beauty free from the bold lipstick, false eyelashes and eyeliner she can be seen wearing in the second photo. Sharing the post with her 40,500 Instagram fans on Monday, Susanna wrote: "Me on Instagram = extra eyelashes, make-up & filters. Me in Real life = blemishes, lines & flaws. There's a time & value for both but don't compare your behind-the-scenes to others' highlights reels. Happy Being You Year!"

Within hours of posting the photo Susanna was inundated with compliments from followers thanking her for sharing the post, with many commenting that she looked better without make-up.

"You look better with your make up off," one wrote. Another added: "WOW much prefer the image on the left you look stunning."


Susanna joins a long line of celebrities in going make-up free on Instagram, with the likes of Drew Barrymore, Katie Holmes and Drew Barrymore all choosing to show off their natural beauty on social media.

The post comes just a few weeks after the 46-year-old underwent a different beauty transformation as part of a campaign for Good Morning Britain. Susanna and her colleague Kate Garraway were aged 40 years by professional make-up artists to get an understanding of how it feels to be older for the ITV show's 1 Million Minutes campaign.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Susanna said: "It was such a shock to see myself aged forty years in just a matter of hours and it was a small insight into how it feels to look older. To think that there are around a million older people who are going to feel lonely and alone in December is upsetting and I really hope lots of people support our 1 Million Minutes campaign and make a difference to someone's life."
