Maura recently won praise for candidly showing off her grey hairs and going makeup free over lockdown.

“For me, I just feel it’s important to show the realness,” she told Independent.ie.

“A lot of people look at us in the public eye and think we’re just perfect and we have glam and make-up and all this every single day. But we don’t; we’re actually as normal as everyone else.

“We have blemishes as well but I feel it’s important to show that because on Instagram, we have all these filters and with my amount of followers, it’s good to show that we’re not always perfect.

“I take off my make-up, I’ll show my grey hairs, it doesn’t bother me in that sense. It’s good to encourage younger people to do the same.”

She added that it is important for young girls to see authenticity from influencers on social media.

“Even when I put up the grey hairs [picture], I got so many DMs from people thanking me for doing this. So many younger girls are self-conscious about them,” Maura said.

“I got people in my DMs saying, ‘Oh my God, I’ve had grey hair since I was 21 and I’ve never told anyone. I was so embarrassed but now looking at your story, it makes me feel so much better about myself.’”
