Love Island 2021star Sharon Gaffka is definitely still on our radar, despite leaving the villa single and well before her time (in our opinion).

In recent months Sharon has used her past year to speak about causes that are close to her and has recently worked tirelessly to improve the lives of the victims of drink spiking. Her work has included campaigning with MPs to get the sentences for people who possess or supply drink spiking drugs extended.

She's also switched up her appearance since being on telly, dissolving her lip filler, going back to her natural dark hair colour AND more recently sharing her experience with having her microblading reversed.

Sharing a before and after reel with her fans, Sharon revealed, "It’s no secret that my appearance has changed a lot since the summer…

"I’ve been very transparent about my whole journey, and where I want to go next! But the one thing I’m so glad I did, probably up there with my most asked questions and something I feel like I don’t talk about as much is my microblading and why I got it removed with @traciegiles_permanentmakeup!

"I actually forgot how much of a difference brows make to your face! 😳".

Sharon also shared some answers to her fan's questions about microblading, including why she decided to go ahead with the procedure in the first place.

"So, the type of Asian I am means that I am not very hairy! It makes shaving my legs a hell of a lot easier, but on the flip side, it means I don’t have very thick brows or lashes," she explained.

"In fact, when they say brows are meant to be sisters, not twins, I don’t even know if I could call mine cousins! I’m a sucker for convenience and ease, so I liked the idea of never needing to do my brows on the daily!"

Chloe Burrows

Chloe may have caught all the boys' attentions as evidenced in a recent explosive episode, but you can see she's always been a stunner from this uni halls pic taken way back in 2015.

Faye Winter

Faye has certainly nailed this classic Instapose in this snap from 2019 - the hair, tan and Adidas bodysuit are all on point and a sign of things to come.

Brad McClellan

A quick glance over Brad's insta and it's clear he uses it primarily to document his fitness journey. This snap from 2017 is from before it all began.

Kaz Kamwi

Kaz was already a fashion blogger before she entered the Love Island villa, and so her first photo is appropriately professional looking (boo).

Finally, a properly old photo! You can tell that Jake was already going to the gym when this photo was taken with a mate back in 2013.

Aaron Francis

Like Kaz, Aaron was already trying his hand as an influencer before he signed up to Love Island and so most of his photos are pretty glossy, but scroll down far enough and we found this photo of him seemingly winning an arm wrestle against Somoan Rugby Union player Many Tuilangi.

Toby Aromolaran

Toby's not giving anything away with this sultry selfie from 2018, other than perhaps that he's heading off on his holidays, judging by his passport and boarding pass. He doesn't look that excited about it though, does he?

Sharon Gaffka

In case you missed it, Sharon used to compete in beauty pageants and was Miss UK 2018. Here she is from the Galaxy pageant that same year.

Liberty Poole

It looks like Liberty has always been a big fan of the finer things in life - as well as a blonde hair extension or two - judging from this snap with a pal from 2019.

Liam Reardon

Viewers couldn't believe that Liam was only 21 when he entered the villa, but here's proof that Liam looked 30 way back in 2018 (regular teenaged boy for reference).

Rachel Finni

This photo of Rach taken on a night out was posted in 2017 but captioned, "2 Years Ago ud83dude2b#CanILookLikeThisAgainPlease", so we can assume it's from way back in 2015.

Millie Court

Proving she's always been a fan of posing up a storm in a bikini, we're majorly jeal of Millie's 2018 holiday to Cannes. Ahh, holidays - remember those?

Lucinda Strafford

Right, we can't actually believe this 2018 photo of bombshell Lucinda - have Love Island checked her I.D.? Is she old enough to be on the show?

WATCH: Love Island's Priscilla Anyabu: "They’re going to think I’m too dark - no one will pick me"

However, she was quick to explain that she definitely made a mistake getting it done multiple times, "I was unhappy with mine, the colour and the shape. Instead of taking a step back and having it removed, I just kept getting it redone, by multiple people! Which I do not recommend at all!

"This meant different pigment brands, and different techniques etc. Leaving them in a complete mess! 🥴."

We think you're brows are heavenly, Shaz.
