The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, China.

The Victoria's Secret Angels are an elite group of models chosen to strut their wings down the catwalk of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. They may be known for their impeccable style and makeup - but a look at their makeup-free selfies prove they're just as gorgeous without the work of their glam squads.

    While there's no doubt that all of them are naturally stunning, we can't exactly guarantee that these no-makeup photos don't include a flattering filter or two - at least, that's what we're telling ourselves to keep our self-esteem levels in check.

    Here's what 14 Victoria's Secret Angels look like without makeup.
