Beyonce proves that wearing a smile can be more beautiful than makeup! The singer posted a close up of her makeup-free face to Instagram on Jan. 29, 2014.
Following the disbandment of Destiny’s Child in June 2005, she released her second solo album, B’Day (2006), which contained hits «Déjà Vu», «Irreplaceable», and «Beautiful Liar». Beyoncé also ventured into acting, with a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Dreamgirls (2006) and starring roles in The Pink Panther (2006) and Obsessed (2009). Her marriage to rapper Jay Z and portrayal of Etta James in Cadillac Records (2008) influenced her third album, I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), which saw the birth of her alter-ego Sasha Fierce and earned a record-setting six Grammy Awards in 2010, including Song of the Year for «Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)». Beyoncé took a hiatus from music in 2010 and took over management of her career; her fourth album 4 (2011) was subsequently mellower in tone, exploring 1970s funk, 1980s pop, and 1990s soul. Her critically acclaimed fifth album, Beyoncé (2013), was distinguished from previous releases by its experimental production and exploration of darker themes. Her sixth album, Lemonade (2016), was released in conjunction with a short film of the same name.
