Cardi B is something of a daredevil when it comes to beauty, whether it’s rocking a platinum Linda Evangelista pixie wig and a corset while pregnant or coming clean about getting illegal butt injections.

But underneath it all, the rapper wakes up just like the rest of us: unfiltered, bare-faced, and sporting bedhead.

Knock me down 9 times but i get up 10 bitch!

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on May 2, 2018 at 9:43am PDT


The 25-year-old “Bodak Yellow” star, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Offset, shared a rare all-natural selfie with fans on Wednesday. Instead of her go-to wigs and dramatic false lashes, she’s showing off her thick, shoulder-length hair in its natural form and wearing not a trace of makeup.

While some trolls took aim at her makeunder, most commenters raved about the star’s confidence in sharing her makeup-free appearance.

“You look so different without makeup,” one fan remarked.

“Truly one of a kind,” gushed another follower. “I swear all celebrities’ Instagrams are blurring together. Finally someone who can be confident, but also be real!”

“One time for the real hair!!!!” a commenter wrote. “Yaaaassss Cardi!!!!”

“Let’s talk about [her] beautiful hair and baby glow though!!!!” added another. “Yes Mama.”

The less-is-more look may not work its way into her next video, but Team Cardi is here for all the stripped-back selfies she wants to share.
