Among the various descriptives Courtney Stodden is affiliated with, "subtle" certainly isn't one that springs to mind. This, however, may be about to change. The reality TV star has just treated her followers to a sneak peek of what lies beneath her usually heavily painted exterior — and surprisingly the reality is beyond refreshing.

The reality TV star, who tends to rock a vibe way beyond her 21 years, totally stripped back in a series of Instagram posts that state she's at her happiest when rocking a totally fresh face.

Captioned "NO MAKEUP ... NO HAIRSPRAY... NO FANCY CLOTHES... NO FILTER ‼️ just me. ," Codden is evidently totally make-up free in the picture, unlike so many stars who post these "no make-up" selfies.

Considering the former beauty pageant contestant's career is essentially built around her aesthetics, the move was certainly a brave one, but it's one that has worked in her favor. The post was immediately flooded with followers praising her natural beauty and confidence.

Stodden followed the picture up with a video post in which she states:

"Do you know I feel my best without any make-up on... who knew?"

Well, nobody knew, Courtney — but it's certainly reassuring to hear that the star, who found fame on marrying a then 50-year-old Doug Hutchinson at age 16, can — cosmetic enhancements aside — embrace her natural self.

Of course this isn't the first time we've seen Stodden strip down for her followers' pleasure; it was only three weeks ago she posted this Kim Kardashian tribute, after all.

Despite all this au naturel-ness though, something tells me the Stodden we all know and love will be back before you can say "Popped-It."

Do you think Courtney Stodden is brave for posting this "NO MAKE-UP" selfie series?
