Carol Vorderman may be glamorous, but she's not afraid to go make-up free.

The 61-year-old star took to Instagram to share some before and after shots to show the difference make-up can make.

In the first age-defying picture Vorderman looked fresh-faced and natural as she posted a selfie from her car.

But in the second, taken just hours later, she was fully made-up with glowing skin, a smoky eye and glossy lipstick.

Sharing the shots to Instagram, Vorderman wrote: "Meanwhile in another parallel universe......before and after make up today in TV studio filming a show. Scruff to not scruff....forgot to smile for the camera!!! Soz 😀😀#makeup."

Friends and fans were quick to comment and praise her make-up free look. One wrote: "Love the before… natural beauty… be proud to take you out like that x"

While another posted: "Beautiful with but I hope you don’t mind me saying, beautiful without, a lady with your class definitely dose not need to worry about makeup 😀."

The former Countdown star regularly proves that age is just a number with her flawless red carpet glamour.

Speaking to Hello! last year, she said she keeps fit by hiking, paddleboarding and walking and she is determined to stay for for as long as possible.

She said: "When you get to 60 there's a big difference in your life. I'm embracing 60. I'm going to live until I'm 95, and I'm going to be the same health-wise as I am now when I'm 85. I'm fit and healthy. I consider myself young. I feel young – I move well."

And she is certainly comfortably in her own skin, happily sharing her more casual looks on social media when she enjoys long walks in the countryside or getting her hands dirty renovating her camper van.

Vorderman sold her £2.6m home in Bristol last year and currently lives in the Welsh countryside. But she is in the process of converting a van into a motorhome so she can embark on plenty of travel adventures.

Speaking to Hello! magazine last year she said: "I am a wanderer; I've always been a wanderer. I love making homes, but I don't want to be in them very much."
