Pop princess Kylie Minogue has revealed that she’s filmed her latest music video without a scrap of make-up on her face.
The star, who celebrated her 50th birthday in May of this year, shared a behind-the-scenes sneak peek from the set of the video for her song ‘Golden’, explaining to her fans that she’d decided to let her bare-faced beauty shine through for the shoot.
‘Behind the scenes of the #Golden video, on a roof terrace in Cuba. We had no lights, no crew… no makeup!!’ Kylie wrote, alongside a snap of herself dressed in a simple white vest and shorts.
‘It took some convincing from my Director, Sophie Muller but we did it! Our Director of Photography John Perez filmed the video using his personal camera. Job. Done! ⭐’
Fans were quick to applaud Kylie on her choice to go make-up free, with many complimenting her on her ‘natural beauty’.
‘Good for you, showing that beauty isn’t slapping makeup on like a lot of young girls are doing now,’ declared one commenter. ‘Being the same height, I only wish I knew where you shopped.’
‘You are always beautiful, with or without make up,’ a second agreed, followed by a third who posted: ‘This is one of so many reasons why we love you Kylie!! You are so beautiful inside and out.’
Speaking to YOU magazine earlier this year, Kylie revealed that she feels confident in her own skin – ‘but I’d be lying if I said I never think about getting older.’
‘I’m always asked how I feel about being my age in this industry, and such questions perpetuate the myth that you can’t be older. You are who you are,’ she explained. ‘Men don’t get asked these questions. They don’t get told they look too young, too old, not good enough.
‘Just today I was looking in a magnifying mirror, putting on mascara, and I said to the guy doing my make-up, I think I need to do something. I’m not pro or against [surgery].
‘One of my absolute idols is Jane Fonda, and the way she has handled it is admirable. I remember her saying something like, it’s 80 per cent genetics, ten per cent taking care of yourself and ten per cent a good surgeon. So if, and when, the time comes I’ll be taking a leaf out of Jane Fonda’s book.’
