Unedited photographs showing pimples on singer Beyonce's face have appeared online, after a fan site dedicated to her put them up.

The 224 photos of the 33-year-old were commercial and ad shoots for make-up company L'Oréal's 2013 Feria and Infallible campaigns, according to entertainment site Gawker.

The photos first appeared on Feb 18 on the Beyonce World, and were removed within about an hour.

This comes after an unretouched photo of model Cindy Crawford was recently leaked. The photo showed the 48-year-old wearing a black lingerie set and a fur coat. In it, her stomach looks less than perfect.

While some fans were cruel in their reaction to Beyonce's imperfection, most of them only had kind words to say.
