Former reality star Kelly Donegan is embracing her natural side these days.

The 25-year-old, who shot to fame on TV3 show Tallafornia in 2012, has embracing a makeunder in recent months, in stark contrast to her super glammed up appearance just four years ago.

Donegan, who also released her debut fitness book Build Your Own Body this year, first stepped away from her wardrobe of bodycon dress and OTT makeup when she tried her hand at becoming a bodybuilder last year.
