She’s known and loved for her glossy Instagram photos that depict her healthy lifestyle but social star Alice Liveing has shared her most candid post yet.
The blogger and author, who uses the alias Clean Eating Alice online, shared a contrasting snap of her with and without makeup to prove that social media can trick users into believing ‘perfection’ is the norm.
Alice, 23, from London, shared a photo of her makeup-free alongside a glossy photo of her on a photoshoot in a bid to prove that ‘nobody is perfect’.
She captioned the photo ‘Instagram vs reality’ and explained that while she isn’t usually a fan of these kinds of posts, her followers have inundated her with tips for clear skin like hers.

‘Truth is, it isn’t,’ she revealed. ‘This is my skin, no make up. I just want you all to realise that we all have imperfections. They’re NORMAL. This crazy social media world can trick us into believing “perfection” is the norm when really, it simply isn’t and it’s an unrealistic ideal to aim to achieve.
‘Striving for perfection or what we perceive to be perfection will only leave both you and I feeling disheartened. I try and do right by my skin, and yes I do wear make up, but sometimes it’s just bad and that’s okay.’
