Moroccan diva, Samira Saeed , might be an internationally renowned singer but that doesn't mean she's forgotten where she came from.
The star, who now lives in Cairo, decided to make a special trip home for Mother's Day so she could spend some quality time with her mom.
Samira decided to put all her projects on ice for two weeks  in order to make the visit. Meanwhile, she has been trying out a new, more natural look online.
The star posted photos of herself make-up free on her Facebook page  to see how fans would react. While many were supportive, some she had photoshopped the pictures before putting them up.
