Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
Katy Perry has changed her look over the years according to her taste. In all of them, she has looked absolutely stunning. Of course, a lot of effort goes into preparing herself for the public eye, or at least for professional photographers who can’t wait to get an ugly picture of her. But she couldn’t have anticipated Russell Brand, her husband at that time, to post her bare face on Twitter—a post he eventually deleted. However, tabloids got a hold of it and it remains in circulation to this day.
Goldie Hawn – Cactus Flower
Academy-award winner Goldie Hawn attracted a lot of attention when she appeared wearing no makeup in public. Although the comments were mixed, the seventy-something actress has no problems with her looks and doesn’t care much about what people have to say so we say bravo for her positive attitude. Hawn has taken a break from acting lately, as we last saw her on-screen in 2017 when she starred in Snatched alongside Amy Schumer.
Adele – 19
Adele is never shy of a statement look, going for drama and glamour, rather than natural or understated. So it was quite a change to see the singer sans even a drop of eyeliner in her 2016 Instagram selfie. While we’d probably walk straight past her on the street, we’d trade our inheritance for that flawless complexion, in a heartbeat.
Heather Locklear – Melrose Place
Heather Locklear is a world-famous actress whose career began in the ’80s. She was born in Los Angeles, California and delved into modeling and TV commercials while at UCLA. Her early roles were in ’80s TV shows like CHiPs and Eight is Enough.
Through Dynasty and Saturday Night Live, Heather gained further prominence. She also became well established after landing a leading role in The Return of Swamp Thing. However, her most famous and memorable role was in Melrose Place. In 2017, Heather starred in the TV show Too Close to Home.
Salma Hayek – Frida
The beautiful Salma Hayek has enjoyed immense success over the years, and as well as being an actress has also excelled as a producer, too. She’s also proven that you don’t need a face covered in makeup in order to look beautiful. While her features might not be as prominent, such as her eyes or those bright red lips, she stills looks stunning when going out without anything on her face.
Anne Hathaway – Les Misérables
If you weren’t in love with Anne before 2012, you must have fallen for her in Les Miserables! Although she had to chop off her luscious locks for her role as Fantine in the hit movie, we still can’t take our eyes off of her! Her haircare probably changed and she doesn’t have to do as much as she had to before but she’s still as beautiful as ever.
Katherine Heigl – Roswell
When we saw the picture on the left, we began to think that the paparazzi retouch even their “untreated” pictures. But when we realized that that is Katherine’s flawless skin, we just became jealous! We aren’t mad that her skin looks like that but we would surely want to know what the lovely actress’ skincare routine is. It should be a sin to have such perfect skin. How can she look that beautiful wearing only mascara and some blush?
Gigi Hadid – Vogue
We guess you can rock a bare face anytime if you have the bone structure and facial features of someone like model Gigi Hadid. However, bare-faced photos of her are rare because she’s always all glammed up in her Instagram posts. Hadid is currently one of the most famous models in the world, having collaborated with brands such as Victoria’s Secret and Reebok, while in 2019 she posed for numerous Vogue international covers.
Christina Aguilera – Back to Basics Album
Pop diva Christiana Aguilera always had a flawless look but most recently, she surprised many of her fans when she appeared on the cover of Paper magazine without a drop of makeup and showed that you can be in your mid-30s and still look amazing. She did, however, show off a freshly done manicure. Even when she gained a bit of weight recently, she managed to shed 49 pounds by collaborating with a meal-delivery service, returning to her voluptuous figure.
Jessica Alba – Sin City
We’re not sure what Jessica Alba was thinking when she posted this selfie. Who wants photographic evidence of themselves looking shiny and red, and like you’ve just finished a good cry? We’ll give credit where its due, Jess is as close to a natural beauty as they come, even opting for the natural look for events, but this pic takes it a bit too far.
Britney Spears – Crossroads
The life of a performer can be tough, especially when on tour. Even superstars like Britney suffer the ravages of late nights and unhealthy living. This no-makeup selfie is case-in-point, dark rings, and leftover makeup, tousled hair and a strange pout prove Britney isn’t always picture perfect. Though she hasn’t released any new material since 2016, Spears recently made a huge comeback in the entertainment industry, as she re-opened her Instagram account, while in 2018 she kicked off her Piece of Me tour.
Cameron Diaz – Charlie’s Angels
We love a good celebrity selfie and Cameron Diaz knows how to deliver! Is it bad if we admit that we love her more without any foundation on her face? Don’t get us wrong, the Charlie’s Angels star looks stunning with her face done, but there is something refreshing about her bare-faced look. Imagine waking up, going to the kitchen, and seeing her smile at you, wouldn’t she make your morning 10 times better?
Beyoncé – Destiny’s Child & Great Solo Career
There is no style or outfit that Queen B can’t pull off. Beyoncé keeps stunning us with her remarkable fashion taste whenever she performs and even when she is not wearing lipstick or a powder, she still looks gorgeous and has many female fans who would love to look just like her. In April 2019, Beyonce made her debut as a film producer, as she released her own movie on Netflix titled Homecoming: A Film By Beyonce.
Angelina Jolie – Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
Legendary actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie obviously has some secrets, thanks to which she looks gorgeous on the red carpet and off it. The ultimate feminine symbol needs no cosmetics to keep her beautiful appearance whenever spotted in public. Although going through some rough times privately, it still doesn’t affect her natural glow. She managed to undergo a double mastectomy and overcome a crushing divorce; yet, she still looks stunning!
Kaitlyn Bristowe – The Bachelorette
Being a ballerina’s daughter can awaken the artistic genes inside you and may help you end up in Broadway! That’s what happened with Kaitlyn Bristowe. But being on that particular stage requires commitment. When we say commitment, we include the countless makeup sessions as well. The result of a 2-month Broadway experience turned out a little harmful for Bristowe’s face, evident in this makeup-free selfie she posted. Detox face masks are what we strongly recommend, combined with a tinted sunscreen to cover up the unnecessary spots. Hope you’re reading this, Kaitlyn!
Shakira – Hips Don’t Lie
We can’t argue that Latina singer Shakira is a steamy beauty. With smoky cat eyes and perfectly coiffured hair, her minx-like look is known worldwide. However, when at home she looks more like she should be tackling student loans, than managing a musical empire. She looks young and playful a refreshing change from her smoldering persona on stage. Shakira has released 11 studio albums, with El Dorado being the latest one in 2017.
Janet Jackson – The Jacksons
anet Jackson has been through and through an amazing performer and singer. But what can we say about her appearance? Even though she had a nose job done, she didn’t go as far as her late brother, Michael. We can say that she looks amazing with or without anything on her face and the paparazzi have yet to catch her with a non-pretty face. Better luck next time fellas!
Reese Witherspoon – Legally Blonde
We just adore this blonde! No matter what movie she stars in and what the makeup artist puts on her face, we just go with it! Blonde hair and blue eyes are a mesmerizing combination that we just can’t resist. And you have to admit that even though she is approaching her mid-40s, she still looks like she did in her hit 2001 flick Legally Blonde!
Selena Gomez – Wizards of Waverly Place
The Queen of Instagram, who, as of June 2018, remains the most followed account on the social media app (apart from Instagram’s own account). Gomez came into the spotlight through her role as Alex Russo in Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place. However, she grew out of her child-like persona into an international singing sensation quicker than anyone could’ve anticipated. Selena is a natural beauty and, judging by these pictures, looks just as attractive with or without any makeup on her face.
Madonna – La Isla Bonita
Oh, Madonna. Sweet Madonna. Without makeup, the Queen of Pop looks like the mom who loves her kids more than anything else in the world and hence has devoted all she could to their care, sacrificing her personal care. And while she is a caring mother indeed, that is not the persona Madonna would want you to associate with her—at least not even before she has turned 60 years old.
