Mindy Kaling simply confirmed off her very personal “Cinderella” second.

The Never Have I Ever creator took to Instagram on Nov. 23 to share a video of herself earlier than and after she acquired prepared for the day. In her first look, Kaling is makeup-free, together with her hair in disarray. In the second, the comic is full-on glam, with unfastened waves, fluffy eyelashes and a mauve lip. She captioned the video, by which she goes from humorously horrified at her look to happy with herself, “Friggin’ Cinderella over here.”

This is not the primary time that Kaling — who’s mother to a son and daughter — has gone makeup-free on the ‘gram, nonetheless. In 2018, she obtained reward from her followers when she posted a pic of her “no makeup no filter mom night out” to social media. 

While it’s unclear why The Office alum is getting so glammed up in the mean time, she has been arduous at work selling her new HBO Max sequence, The Sex Lives of College Girls, which debuted earlier this month. Kaling lately spoke to Teen Vogue concerning the influence she hopes the sequence has on younger ladies, and significantly younger ladies of colour.

“I was the repressed Indian girl who hated my body and didn’t feel worthy of sexual attention, and I’m not interested in showing that on TV,” Kaling mentioned, referring to her new sequence. “These characters are not impervious to criticism. They have insecurities for sure because they’re like real people. But if I could, we talk a lot about this in Never Have I Ever, but there’s this idea of how an Asian woman is supposed to be — demure, compliant, brilliant but not too talkative. I’m just not interested in that depiction, and we have plenty of that in other mediums and in other heroines.”

She added: “And I just think, I like the women that I’m writing, particularly the South Asian women, because they’re funny and vibrant and yeah, sometimes they make you uncomfortable, but they feel really real and people that I would want to know.”
