Unretouched photos of Beyonce go viral
The images, which were taken for a 2013 campaign with French cosmetics giant L’Oreal, were leaked on a fan site on Tuesday
Photos showing U.S. pop queen Beyonce not wearing makeup in a 2013 makeup ad have gone viral online, as users of social media discussed the singer’s appearance.
The images - which were taken for a 2013 campaign with French cosmetics giant L’Oreal were leaked on a fan site on Tuesday - appear to show the 33-year-old mother with uneven skin.
Some defended the singer’s looks, while others seemed less than impressed by her appearance.

I'm glad these pictures of Beyonce leaked. She's not perfect. Nobody's perfect and she tries so hard to be perfect all the time.— Feim (@FeimM) February 18, 2015
The fansite where they were originally posted, Beyonce World, deleted the photos after receiving a negative response from fans, known as the “BeyHive.”
“We don't want to cause any drama, nor do we wish to start fan wars,” read a statement from the site. “We were just posting the photos to share the fact that our queen is naturally beautiful, at the same time she is just a regular woman.”
