Millie Bobby Brown is giving a close-up of her natural beauty.

The Stranger Things star recently shared two Instagram photos of herself, showcasing what she looks like with—and without—makeup. In the first image, the 19-year-old snapped a mirror selfie of her side profile and rocked a full face of glam that consisted of shimmery eyeshadow and soft matte lips.

In the next photo, Millie went makeup-free and shared a close-up of her acne breakouts. And like the beauty maven that she is, the teen shouted out her brand, cheekily writing on the Oct. 23 post, "@florencebymills send help!"

Although Millie didn't call attention to her blemishes in the caption, her followers praised her for embracing her real skin.

As one fan replied, "Thank you for normalizing breakouts," while another person echoed similar sentiments, "Love how you show off your acne. it is normal and okay to get breakouts."

Another follower added, "She makes me feel so comfortable to have acne i feel almost empowered and confident in my face."

Stars With Beauty Brands

This isn't the first time Millie has been open about getting acne breakouts. Back in March, she shared a video of her self-care routine and how she was "embracing the imperfections" of her skin.

"As you can tell I'm having a pretty rough night with my skin," she said at the time, before pointing to different areas of her face, "This zit is not very happy. These pimples up here are not happy."

To treat some of her blemishes, she used a mud mask as a spot treatment. For one of the breakouts that she described as "angry with me," she applied a pimple patch "to give it the love it needs."

"This has really helped me with my spot treatment," the Enola Holmes actress concluded, "and I'm officially ready for bed."
