Michelle Keegan received a flood of compliments as she posed fresh-faced for a selfie.

The former Corrie actress wowed as she posted a close-up photo on Instagram of herself gazing into the camera wearing natural make-up shades with a creamy nude lip shade and just a flick of black eyeliner.

And her on-trend full eyebrows captured attention as she shared it with her 4.8million followers.

"Brows envy," commented one fan.

Another fan said: "Hahaha inspo, they are lush, I love them."

And another said they fancied getting their brows microbladed - a tattooing technique to achieve the illusion of fuller brows after seeing the Our Girl and Brassic star's picture.

"No lie that she is actually the reason I started researching it," they said.

Another follower praised that she looked 'stunning' and another told her: "Absolutely sensational Michelle."

"Natural Manchester beauty right there," said another about the 33-year-old who shot to fame as Tina McIntyre in Corrie.

She played feisty barmaid Tina from 2007 to 2013.

In 2018 Michelle uncovered exceptional women on her family tree on the show.

On her mother's side Michelle discovered that her Gibraltarian great-grandmother Leonor had to up sticks when all women and children and the elderly were evacuated from harm's way in Gibraltar to London during the Second World War, a month before the start of the Blitz.

And she discovered her great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Kirwan had been living in poverty in Manchester at the start of the 20th century.

She unearthed a special connection to suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and her great-great-grandmother's commitment to the cause that put her name on the electoral roll, voting for the first time in 1918.

Michelle, from Stockport, lives in Essex with her husband former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright.
She's been back in Manchester and Lancashire filming the third series of the gritty Sky One comedy drama Brassic.
