A woman has gone viral after revealing what her face looks like without makeup, and many have praised her for being comfortable in showing her natural face to millions of people.

Julia Grandoni (@jugrandoni) who hails from Quebec, Canada posted a video which at the beginning showed herself in full glam sporting a black dress, with the on-screen text reading "Wow you're so pretty!!" referring to the response she gets when she presents herself in this way.

The video then abruptly cuts to a clip of Grandoni on her bed with the camera angled close-up to her face wearing no makeup as she jokingly mouths the words to the song playing in the background "Girl that's not me," so as to depict the difference between the two versions of her.

"I love that you show your face with no makeup! We need to normalize that natural is also beautiful!" another person wrote.

Someone else added: "This is what girls growing up need to see to understand that it’s okay if you don’t look like that."

"That is still you, just with make up. You’re stunning with or without it!" a fourth person commented.
