“So simple and cute 🖤💋.”

“Simple. That’s why I love you ♥️.”

“Pretty natural look.”

“Looks very natural. 👌🏾Good job. 🌹.”

Michele’s followers were also swooning over her hair. 

“Hair looking real healthy 😍😍.”

“Look at that hair, told you so💙💙.”

“It’s back,” Michele responded to the fan. 

Michele chatted with BET during the BET Awards 2017 describing her thoughts on embracing her natural beauty in this day of age where social media platforms are rampant with women wearing extensions and filtering their photos to the max. 

“Don’t get me wrong. I love filters, makeup, and weave still, and nothing’s wrong with anyone wearing it,” Michele said. “I’m just starting to feel more confident when I’m complimented on my complexion rather than my highlight and contour. Achieving naturally glowing skin with a radiant, makeup-free highlight is now GOALS. I just wanna love the skin I’m in.”

In a 2020 Harper’s Bazaar beauty video, Michele shared her nightly skincare routine, which showcases how she keeps her skin flawless.

“I have a lot of texture issues, and that can cause my makeup to look kind of cakey,” she said. “So I like to take off a layer of skin each week.”
