Gwen Stefani flaunts real skin in unedited pics from date with Blake Shelton after fans slam her for too much photoshop

GWEN Stefani has shown off her actual skin texture while on a date with her husband Blake Shelton amid backlash regarding recent photo editing.

Earlier this week, critics bashed The Voice star for significantly altering her photo in a new advertisement for her beauty line.

Now Gwen, 53, has been spotted in her natural state while on a lunch date at E. Baldi Restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The singer-songwriter enjoyed the daytime outing with her husband and their family.

The mother of three looked glamorous in a polka-dotted top, a textured leather jacket, white jeans, black heeled booties, and a matching bag.

Gwen wore her platinum blonde locks tied up in a tight bun and added oversized sunglasses to finish off the look.

The vocalist showed off her natural skin texture without filters in the snaps, looking gorgeous as ever.

Blake Shelton went for a casual black button-down with jeans, and he carried his own leather jacket as the couple walked to and from the restaurant.

On Thursday, Gwen faced backlash after sharing a new snap on the official Instagram page of her cosmetics brand, GXVE Beauty by Gwen Stefani.

In the close-up shot, the TV star held her new highlighter and bronzer palette close to her face while staring directly at the camera.

She donned heavy makeup of long, thick eyelashes, and a pink pout, while her flawless skin had no wrinkles or blemishes in sight.

Gwen styled her blonde locks in a half bun and wore long red nails, and diamond jewelry, including a necklace with her company's name on it.

The post, originally shared last month, announced the product's June 1 release in its caption.

However, not all of the Spiderwebs singer's fans were impressed by the ad, as many thought she went too far in using Photoshop and filters.

"Not so much Photoshop, please. That's not what 50 + year olds look like. All of them have some degree of wrinkles and that is beautiful too. No need to lie," one person wrote in the comments.

Others agreed, noting the TV star's seemingly unnatural-looking skin in the photo.

Gwen received similar remarks about another recent post on the GXVE Instagram page.

It was a video of the 53-year-old gently applying her brand's highlighter to her cheekbones.

She circled her makeup brush on the pallet before seductively blowing the excess powder off the brush toward the camera.

Gwen rocked a tight white shirt with stacked long gold necklaces covering her chest.

Her platinum blonde hair was parted down the middle and curled at the ends.

In the video, the rockstar's makeup was already done, and the highlighter appeared to make little difference.

The caption revealed that Gwen wears the highlighter shade Platinum Cowgirl.

However, some fans called out the makeup brand for advertising the product with a filter.

"Would love to see her without a filter," one viewer said.

"Gwen what happened to your authenticity?" another wrote.

"C'mon Gwen, you don't need that make-up. You're born as naturally beautiful," added a third.

"Can we see your real face," someone else asked with laughing emojis.
