"Dynasty" Actress Stephanie Beacham Let Her Freckles Shine Through In 1972 (PHOTO)

British actress Stephanie Beacham knew what she was doing when it came to big hair and dramatic makeup -- she was a soap opera star, after all. The "Celebrity Big Brother" star got her start starring alongside Marlon Brando in 1971's "The Nightcomers," but it was her roles on TV shows like "The Colbys," and the final season of soap opera "Dynasty" (with Joan Collins) that garnered her the most attention.

Beacham proved that heavy makeup wasn't always necessary, though. In this photo, from 1972, she showed off her natural beauty. Wearing just a headscarf, several necklaces and minimal makeup, the soap star let her adorable freckles shine through.
