Snooki sheds her makeup for a fresh-faced photo on Twitter.

Snooki goes without makeup on Twitter

We always assumed that Jersey Shore guidette Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had makeup on 24/7. The pint-sized pickle eater is always in a full face of bronzer and fake lashes, until now.

"No make up day :) and IDC (I don't care)," the reality star tweeted on Thursday, along with a photo of her makeup-free face.

The reaction was overwhelmingly positive.

"Can I just say how amazing my fans/supporters are! You guys really know how to put a smile on my face! Love you all beyond words."

She should be happy — the Chile-born Snooki looks incredible without a ton of artificial enhancers. She's actually a natural beauty. We just don't think she'll be giving up on her beloved makeup and tanning anytime soon, especially since she just launched her own line of tanning lotion.

"I'm actually trying to get a clothing line together," she told GQ in November. "I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish..."

Her favorite product? Dry shampoo, surprisingly.

"I love dry shampoo because it doesn't leave your hair sticky and pretty much holds it better," she told Glamour in 2010. "I just spent like $80 on dry shampoo. I don't even need to tease my hair or do anything, because if you feel my hair it's very thick. So when I get out of the shower, I just let it dry and put it up in a poof — it takes two seconds."

Keep on with the low maintenance routine, Snooks! It suits you.
