Millie Bobby Brown is hot off the heels of her 20th birthday bash, that was also her bachelorette party—and the British actress is giving her skin some time to recover from the exciting event and milestone, even while on live television.

The Stranger Things star, who plays the lead role in Netflix’s new fantasy-adventure film Damsel, appeared on an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show to promote the film and share some fun life updates.

Fans and viewers were quick to notice that the Primetime Emmy Award-nominee opted for a natural, bare-face look, instead of the go-to full-glam celebrities often do for daytime and nighttime talk shows.

Brown looked absolutely incredible in glowy, sultry makeup on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week (where she finally divulged the adorable, chaotic details of how fiancé Jake Bongiovi popped the question underwater last year) and she looked just as beautiful while chatting with Barrymore.

“@milliebobbybrown tells Drew all about the wedding-themed party she had for her 20th birthday 💍 Tune in TOMORROW for more!,” the TV show captioned a snippet from the episode on Instagram.

“The fact she has no make up on 🥰,” Kianna Wilson commented.

“I think the pimple patch is awesome!! Normalize normal skin!!,” one fan exclaimed.

“I love that she’s not wearing any makeup. She’s beautiful without it ❤❤,” another wrote.

“The fact that she’s wearing no make-up is so wonderful. Gen Z is really working hard to untangle the patriarchy🫶🫶🫶,” someone else chimed.

The Florence by Mills beauty brand founder also rocked a cute, quirky butterfly-shaped pimple patch on her cheek, and showed off her natural, imperfect skin. She revealed that while she‘s not really a partier, her wedding-themed birthday and bachelorette party was “so fun.”

Both women donned comfy matching lilac sweat sets and cozied up on a couch as they chatted.
