‘Girls’ star praised for sharing dramatic on-screen transformation

Anyone who watches Girls may look at star Allison Williams and wonder exactly what it takes to look so darn pretty all of the time.

Well, while the actress certainly is a natural beauty, she revealed the precise detail behind her onscreen transformation into Marnie Michaels this weekend.

The 27-year-old took to her Instagram account to share a photo of her face with half of her character makeup on, and the other half bare.

“Took half my makeup off. Guess why Marnie might have this insane look?” wrote the star, sharing a unique before and after comparison.

In a world of filters and elaborate makeup selfies, Allison’s post is very refreshing; and a number of her followers took to the photo-blogging site to applaud the move.

“Love this! Love her. Wonder what’s gonna be up with Marnie?” wrote one Instagram follower.

Meanwhile, another user echoed the sentiments of so many other followers as she wrote: “Way prettier without all that makeup.”

We think Allison is fabulous and beautiful either way. Can you tell that we kind of love her?
