The first pic showed Cabello in a black string bikini that featured a neon outline, while the second snap was a close-up shot of her artistic eyeliner and hairdo.

The post comes after the X Factor alum spoke out about body shaming, as social media users were directing rude comments towards her when she was seen out for a jog.

"I was just running in the park minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy," the star explained in a TikTok video. "And I am wearing a top that shows my belly, and I wasn't tucking it in ... because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time."

For a minute, Cabello admitted that she was disappointed with her figure, "but then I reminded myself, being at war with your body is so last season."

"I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do," she declared. "We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby."

Cabello has discussed body acceptance in the past, as she wants to be a role model for her younger sister. However, she fears her sibling is growing up with a warped image of beauty since so many people use filters to edit their photos.

"It’s hard being a girl, because no matter what we look like, we’re always so hard on ourselves, and we feel like there’s always someone judging us," she told J-14. "I think it’s a common thing we deal with. I mean, we all have days when we don’t feel pretty — I know I do."

To boost her confidence, the A-lister used daily words of affirmation.

"It was hard at first, because I was my own worst critic. I ended up building a bubble and focusing on myself during that time," she admitted. "I would tell myself that I was beautiful and the more I said it, the more I believed it."
