Maura Higgins posted some really raw snap of herself without hair extensions, nails or fake tan after trolls accused her of picture editing.

The former Love Island beauty says she's constantly flooded with abuse and is now fed up of it.

She revealed her DMs are packed full of people suggesting she is faking her look on Instagram, something she denies.

Maura was accused of doctoring her images totally – but insists she only makes tiny changes, like lighting, but says nothing about her body or face isn't authentic in her photos.

Over three million people follow the Irish stunner on Instagram.

She uploaded a trio of pictures and a video to prove her point after growing tired of the stream of unkind messages.

She wrote: "Slide for this original image & then look at the last image where lighting, angles etc are all wrong. My DMs are just flooded with trolls atm claiming I over use the smooth tool & enhance my eyeballs!

"Should I really apologise for having good skin really? And the trick to making your eyes pop is just good lighting and “white eyeliner” I like to just up the brightness and detail my outfit!"

She added: "The pressure’s of social media can really affect people so maybe think twice about jumping into somebody’s DMs with abuse about their image.
