Married At First Sight star Stacey Hampton is certainly not shy of using a glam filter while sharing her looks on Instagram. 

But the mother of two opted for a more natural look while sharing an earthy shot with her son on Monday. 

Stacey, who tries to offer a real bond with her near 200K followers, said she wanted to share a candid photo.

‘I wanted to post a photo of us – no filter, no edit no nothing,’ the law graduate said.   

‘Candid – enjoying pasta! Instagram isn’t reality – you’re all perfect in your own way.’

It comes after a source revealed Stacey turned down an offer to appear on Ex On The Beach, which was filmed in Colombia.

Ex Married At First Sight star Michael Goonan is set to star on the show.  

A source told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Stacey isn’t interested. She doesn’t care for it.’

‘She’s about to launch her clothing label and needs to stay in Adelaide for her kids. Her two boys are in school right now, and they need her more than ever,’ they said.

Stacey is understood to have pulled out of Ex on the Beach because she realised she ‘didn’t need the money’ after making a fortune from OnlyFans.       

Law graduate Stacey has been open about her use of cosmetic enhancements, but spoke of opting for a more natural look last year. 

Stacey, who was paired with Michael Goonan on MAFS last year, got her lip fillers dissolved at a cosmetic clinic in March that same year.

In October, however, Stacey admitted to Daily Mail Australia that she did have 1ml of filler added to her lips in April, ‘so it’s naturally plump, and not too much.’

She insisted everything else was completely natural.  

‘It’s literally just the Instagram filter that makes everyone’s lips look massive!’ she said, explaining her larger-than-life features.

Stacey added that she wouldn’t go down the filler route again, and also shared an unfiltered photo with Daily Mail Australia to prove that she really does have natural-looking lips.

She previously told Daily Mail Australia she feared her face was starting to ‘look ridiculous’ as her lips fluctuated in size daily, prompting her decision.

‘I’ve been getting filler since I was about 18. I’ve reached a point where I haven’t had any in a year and a half and I’ve been wanting my lips to dissolve naturally on their own – which they haven’t,’ Stacey explained at the time.

‘Some days they look massive, depending on my water intake or the weather, there are so many contributing factors. So I’m getting them dissolved today.’
