Pamela Anderson has been praised for her gorgeous make-up free look in a new set of snaps, after previously opening up about why she’s ditching the glam vibe.

While she’s best known for glamorous appearance, in recent years, the model, actor and animal rights activist has decided to strip things back, embracing a more natural look – even at star-studded events like 2023 Paris Fashion Week.

Anderson has said the shift in style was rooted in her desire for ‘freedom’, but also revealed there’s another, more heartbreaking, reason behind the simplified beauty routine.

She told Elle that dropping her signature look came shortly after her friend, makeup artist Alexis Vogel, died in 2019, having been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Anderson told the outlet: “She was the best. And since then, I just felt, without Alexis, it’s just better for me not to wear makeup.”

She also claimed that it has been ‘freeing, fun and a little bit rebellious’ to debut a new look, adding: “Because I did notice that there were all these people doing big makeup looks, and it’s just like me to go against the grain and do the opposite what everyone’s doing.”

And in the spirit of ‘celebrating authenticity’, Anderson has now announced a brand new venture, having joined beauty brand Sonsie Skin as a ‘co-founder new owner’.

Writing about her news on Instagram, she explained: “Sonsie is an emerging, beautiful, vegan & cruelty-free skincare company… with an important message that I want to help share with the world.

“To me, true beauty is about celebrating authenticity… I want to look like myself, feel like myself, and that means taking care of myself - inside and out…

“I believe our differences are what make us beautiful and interesting to one another… The goal is to realize our own purpose on earth… and it starts with believing in ourselves… to have courage… to be what no one else is, and find strength in that - It goes beyond healthy skin.”

She added: “I am so proud to be a part of this world… and on my terms, finally.

“We have so much planned and I cannot wait to share more.

“Just simple, loving skincare for all.”

Anderson later posted a gorgeous make-up free snap, tagging Sonie Skin.

"I took off the mask and the world opened up…" she said in the caption.

Her fans were full of praise for the posts, saying she looked 'stunning' and was a 'light for women everywhere'.

In a poignant comment, one told her: "I love this new chapter and your voice and expression so much. Watching you feels like a treasure.

"I haven’t worn makeup in about ten years. As someone whose face is in the light in different ways - this is actually a part of how I teach.

"Photoshoots, all sorts of things - authenticity and showing the lines of who we are is so important.

"Thanks for hurtling this message into the larger world for women."

Someone else said: "What a movement @pamelaanderson! I can just feel your whole soul thanking you!!! Like she’s embracing full womanhood, which you’ve always done by the way."
