Painfully lovely South African model, Candice Swanepoel, is best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, in the catalog and on the runway. While her Victoria’s Secret photos don’t leave much to the imagination, the 23-year old recently got even more intimate in?front of the camera, showing off a pierced nipple in a shoot with photographer Seth Sabal.
When you’re naturally flawless, there’s no reason to hide your bare face (or your pierced nipple, apparently), and Candice Swanepoel without makeup is astonishingly beautiful.
In the first makeup-free?photo, Candice is being primped backstage before the 2010 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Even with rollers and pins in her hair, she is gorgeous. She has a perfect complexion and sparkling blue eyes.
The second bare-faced photo looks a bit like a sexy mug shot.?In fact, it’s a Polaroid shot taken at a studio session at the beginning of Candice’s modeling career and featured in Douglas Perrett?s book ?Wild Things.? Even in an unflattering photo without a speck of makeup or the assistance of photoshop, Candice still looks remarkable. Her bone structure is perfection and her eyes are?truly striking.
