The amount of fake tanning and bronzer the cast of "Jersey Shore" relies on is so immense it's comical, but for once, we get to see one of the show's stars without her trademark orange glow.
Snooki tweeted a photo of herself on a "no makeup day" on Wednesday, and fans immediately responded to the fresh-faced look.
"[You] look great without it u should go natural more often," said one Twitter follower, while another was stunned into swearing.
"Holy s*** snooks you look the best without makeup!" the follower exclaimed.
Snooki appreciated the kind words, following up on Twitter to remark on "how AMAZING my fans/supporters are! You guys really know how to put a smile on my face! Love You all beyond words...."
However, it doesn't seem that she's keeping the pared down look for good. By Thursday, Snooki was encouraging her followers to "snookify" themselves and enter an indoor tanning photo contest.
