On Monday, Daisy Ridley posted an Instagram with text saying "I woke up like this #nofilter #nomakeup." But it's pretty clear in the picture that she definitely is wearing makeup (whether or not she slept in it is unknown). In fact, she's almost unrecognizable.

The caption reads:

3 of these statements aren't true... Social media is great but also a bit scary cause what people post is the most filtered, most carefully chosen and cleverly edited moments of their lives. And self esteem is a huge issue for people around the world. My skin isn't great so I don't post no make up selfies, much as I'd like to; I have a trainer urging me on in workouts and don't include all the times I say "I can't do it" and I don't smile all the time but I like to share the pictures where I am. But I actually do love myself, I try to think good thoughts always and am surrounded by the most wonderful people, so I'm keeping it balanced (like the Force, obvs). Just thought I'd say :)

Based, on that caption, Ridley is basically the diametric opposite of the Kardashian/Jenner ladies. She's also has been outspoken on Instagram about other issues, like body-shaming. She's like the James Randi of the millennial set, debunking Instagram lies and exposing social media shams for what they are. But even without her helpful explanation, people can still tell the difference between "makeup" and "no makeup."
