While the recently-aired season finale of her hit show Our Girl won acclaim from fans and critics, some viewers criticised her for sporting a flawless look in a warzone.
And Michelle Keegan appeared to be making up for the apparent faux pas on Wednesday, when she shared a gory shot of herself sporting a bloodied and bruised face as she posed in gory makeup on the set of the BBC series.
Donning army fatigues for the selfie, which appeared to have been snapped in her changing room, the 31-year-old actress captioned the shot: 'Yep...still here!'

Unkempt strands of hair are seen hanging over part of the former Coronation Street star's face in the shot, which she took while getting back into character as medic Lance Corporal Georgie Lane for the upcoming third season of the programme.


Fans of the show were recently left devastated, when her co-star Luke Pasqualino's character Elvis was tragically killed.
Michelle's work on the third season - which will see the storyline shift to Nigeria - comes weeks after fans slammed her glamorous styling as 'unrealistic', as viewers complained that she looked too perfect.
She was boasting 'flawless' hair and make-up despite the gritty surroundings - and some were also left baffled by her 'oddly plastic face'.

Fans penned: 'How does Michelle's make up stay flawless when on a relief mission in Nepal and mine can't even survive my commute to work... Michelle's hair is too done up not realistic to think shes in a deprived are with little to nothing there...
'Only Michelle Keegan could still look good, covered in dust and under a load of earthquake rubble! A house collapses on Michelle Keegan yet she still manages to look flawless... Nice to see how quickly they set up the emergency hospital and eyebrow bar in earthquake shattered Nepal. Priorities girls! #OurGirl... 
'Feel I must point out that character like Georgie would not be wearing foundation, mascara & painted eyebrows in earthquake zone #OurGirl'.

Viewers also slammed Michelle's apparently made-up appearance, with one writing: 'Michelle Keegan on a Nepalese Humanitarian Mission complete with Mascara, lip gloss and eyebrow pencil.'
'Our Girl. 1. Michelle Keegan's eyebrow styling is a continuity nightmare. 2. They've made it grittier by saying 'f**k' a lot,' another wrote.
The episode follows the aftermath of an earthquake rocking the country, with Michelle left to train unruly new recruit Richards (Shalom Brune-Franklin) and deal the sudden reappearance of ex-boyfriend Elvis (Luke Pasqualino). 
Hmm: But viewers complained that the actress looked too perfect, boasting 'flawless' hair and make-up despite the gritty surroundings - and some were also left baffled by her 'oddly plastic face'

Despite her humanitarian mission, viewers were instead distracted by Keegan's preened eyebrows.
'Bit distracted by michelle keegans eyebrows in #OurGirl,' one wrote, while another added: '3 aftershocks later and Michelle Keegan’s eyebrows are still intact.' Another viewer claimed: 'Michelle Keegan’s face looks oddly plastic #OurGirl' 
But many were bowled over by the former Coronation Street star's natural beauty, with one writing: 'Michelle Keegan is literally [heart emoji] even with no make-up! What an unreal programme.'
Another wrote: 'Michelle Keegan doesn’t look too bad for a girl working in war torn countries.'

Michelle's return to Our Girl comes after she admitted to having no choice but to star in season three as she had signed a contract before any confirmation of another installment.
Speaking on Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 Show, she discussed the difficulty of seven months away from husband Mark Wright, while admitting she was forced to carry her seven and a half stone weight and suffering horrific bruising during stunts.

For any actress, the chance to star in such a successful drama is a dream, yet after signing the contract without knowledge of a new series or plans for a 12 episodes as opposed to series two's five, she was left with no choice but to reprise the role.
She said: 'I wasn't 100% there would be another series but I signed the option for there to be another. Obviously the first time it was for five episodes but this time it was for 12 so it's overly doubled. 
'I didn't know that at the time either. It's been a long, long filming schedule. I was away for three months last time and this time I was in South Africa for three months and then I had three weeks off then I was in Malaysia for three months.


'So over all I was away for seven months. It was a long time being away from home. I had to do it, the contract was signed. Book me a flight!'
