Some people prefer to hide their childhood and school photos, while others are ready to share their pictures from the past and are proud of how they’ve grown and matured.

We at Enlighten like the second approach more: if these people were bold enough to reveal their old photos, they certainly have a lot of self-confidence. So we decided to include these women and their transformations on our list.

1. “What did I have to do to turn into the girl on the right? I learned how to apply makeup and stopped going shopping with my mom. That’s all.”

6. I just had to stop applying my makeup THIS way and grow out my bangs. It’s me at the age of 14 and 24.
