This Isn't "Fresh Faced:" It's Unpolished
What do you think when you look at this image? "Gee, it's nice to see her natural beauty?" or rather, "Holy cow, Sharon, not only is that blouse an offense against nature and your skin tone, you MUST have realized you'd be caught on camera looking so blotchy and raggedy-headed."
Miss Stone is really pretty. So are you., and she's had a lot more professional help in getting that way than you've ever had.
But with just three minutes of time, Sharon could have achieved a quick evening-out of her skin tone with a creme compact (like the one by Lancome I used to use years ago when I was very into being super pale), a brightening of her lips, and some eyelashes. A brush of blush, a twist of the hair into an upknot, and she would have been camera-ready.
Now, our job in life isn't to be camera-ready at ALL times (but much of the time, yes). It is to realize that we are public people, that it doesn't take much effort at all to be presentable and polished, and that NO ONE LOOKS GOOD IN THAT BLOUSE.
