Maura Higgins shocks Love Island fans after ditching make-up and fake tan


MAURA Higgins has shocked Love Island fans after ditching her make-up and fake tan for a selfie.

The 29-year-old showed off her natural beauty in the snap taken during her Christmas break back home in Ireland.

Maura was trying to recreate a picture from her childhood, showing her fans the baby snap before flipping the camera around to her bare face.

Pulling a cheeky smile and with her hair tied loosely back, Maura looked fresh as a daisy without a scrap of mascara or fake tan in sight.

Her au naturale look was in stark contrast to the Dancing on Ice launch earlier this month, which saw Maura suitably glammed up to the nines.

The reality star has been busy training for the ITV skating show – which starts next month – meaning she’s had little time to see Love Island boyfriend Curtis Pritchard.

Curtis, 23, told Lorraine earlier this month on her TV show: “We haven’t had time to spend with everyone, and Maura. I haven’t seen Maura in a little bit.

“We’re lucky because we have mobile phones so we can stay in contact so easily but it is a shame.”

While Maura has been busy on the ice, Curtis is currently in panto as Dick Whittington at Wycombe Swan Theatre.

However Maura managed to find time in her hectic schedule to visit her boyfriend at the theatre before heading home for Christmas earlier this month.

Curtis grinned from ear to ear as he was finally reunited with his other half.

By the time Curtis finishes in panto on January 5, Maura will just be kicking off her Dancing On Ice journey alongside Joe Swash, Lisa George and Trisha Goddard.
