Beyonce may be Sasha Fierce on stage but she is just plain Beyonce when working in the studio, sharing a photo of herself going make-up free while recording her new album.
The 'Run The World (Girls)' singer has been hard at work over the last month on her fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2011's 4, which is expected to be released in spring, 2013.
In the photo with Queen Bey shared on Instagram, the singer can be seen fresh faced, clear of make-up, wearing a trendy monochrome outfit of black and white leather trousers and a matching chiffon blouse.

Earlier this month, Beyonce was seen hanging out in the studio with R&B singer Miguel, who later confirmed that he has been recording new material with the diva.
"I heard it from my team, and I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ ‘Are you sure?’ ‘Are we talking about the Beyonce?'" Miguel told MTV News.
"And after taking a second to confirm and double confirm and triple confirm, I’m excited to hear the direction of her new material, and hopefully come up with something that’s really special and really showcases her perspective."
"She’s definitely the most dominant female [artist] — dedicated and driven. I’m such a huge fan so it’s gonna be really cool."
Beyonce's new album is expected to coincide with her performance during the Super Bowl halftime in February 2013, which will be her first televised performance since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January.
