We rarely see her without multiple layers of fake eyelashes, lashings of make-up and in a figure-hugging dress and heels.
But Sam Faiers was practically unrecognisable yesterday when she was pictured looking incredibly down to earth outside her home in Essex.
The reality star was make-up free and wearing unshapely tracksuit bottoms.
Natural woman: Sam Faiers was pictured at her home in Essex yesterday without her usual face full of make-up
Miss Faiers is clearly at ease with her on again/off again boyfriend Joey Essex, allowing him to catch a glimpse of her au naturel.
The couple larked about together outside her house for the cameras, following their 'first date' in their rekindled relationship airing on The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday.
Sam, 21, wore not a scrap of make-up on her face and tied her short blonde hair back in a casual, whispy ponytail.
So that's what you look like! The reality star was almost unrecognisable without the layers of make-up and false eyelashes she usually sports on a daily basis (right)
Playing house: Sam was spending time with on again/off again boyfriend Joey Essex
She wore a pair of black harem-style tracksuit bottoms with a T-shirt and Converse trainers - a far cry from her usual bandage dress and platform heels.
Sam's sister Billie was equally casual in blue polka dot trousers and a white jumper.
Joey, ever aware of his appearance, put a bit more effort in with his black T-shirt, blue jeans and perfectly groomed hair.
Sisterhood: Sam gave her sister Billie a piggyback, for an unknown reason, around the street, while Joey looked on bemused
Give her a push: Joey struggled to get going on the bike as he gave his rekindled flame a ride
Joey helped carry some of Sam's clothes out of her house before the trio had some fun on a bicycle.
Diminutive Joey struggled to pedal with his girlfriend on the back, while Sam had a little more success taking the lead.
Sam and Joey enjoyed a 'first date' during the last episode of TOWIE, taking a helicopter ride over Essex.
Off we go: Sam had more success pedalling than diminutive Joey
In the bad books already? Sam gave Joey a smack on the backside with a baseball bat
He then hired out a restaurant for the pair, and treated Sam to her favourite party sausages.
Joey then asked Sam: 'Where do we go from here?'
Sam replied: 'I dunno, what do you wanna do? Have a little kiss?' Joey was more than happy to, and the pair embraced.
