Melbourne: Socialite Kim Kardashian wants her fans to see what she really looks like.

The 29-year-old reality TV star bravely showed off her natural complexion as she was photographed for America`s Life and Style magazine.

Her reason for going make up free was to send an important message to her millions of fans.

“Make-up is fun, but it’s just another accessory. I’m happy with myself, and this is who I am.

“As much as it’s fun to glam up, the most important thing is to be comfortable in your own skin - with or without make-up,” The Daily Telegraph quoted Kim as saying to the magazine.

She, however, did admit that she often relies on cosmetics to help maintain her flawless complexion.

“I use it to give my whole face a little more colour since it’s so pale in comparison to my body,” she said.
