Sometimes we just need to ditch our everyday makeup routine to give our skin a chance to breathe freely. Though we all know it’s healthy, we still feel shy about showing the skin imperfections we might have. In order to get a boost of self-confidence, we’re offering you a chance to look at the celebrities who were brave enough to go makeup-free and even post their natural photos online.
We at Bright Side are all for natural beauty, that’s why we couldn’t help but share these photos of celebrities proudly showing their ’bare’ faces.
15. Lady Gaga
Though Lady Gaga successfully launched her own beauty line called Haus Laboratories in September, she was still courageous enough to post a photo of herself without almost any makeup, wearing Tiffany diamonds, during her pre-Oscars preparations. Which Gaga do you like more?
Au natural Adele looks as stunning without makeup as she does with it. The British singer occasionally posts makeup-free photos on her Instagram and they gain millions of likes.
13. Lana Del Rey
Lana also occasionally lets her eyes and lips have a rest from eyeliner and lipstick. She regularly appears on Instagram looking fresh, beautiful, and without any makeup (or with very little of it).
12. Tyra Banks
America’s Next Top Model host is well aware of how to work the camera and feels free to share barefaced selfies on her Instagram, without any hesitation.
11. Kate Beckinsale
The main heroine of Underworld and Van Helsing looks as good without makeup, as she does with it. Her post on Instagram with a bathtub in the background and her naturally beautiful face in the foreground got almost 150,000 likes from her followers.
10. Miley Cyrus
Like other celebrities, Miley also doesn’t hesitate to share her natural-looking face with her followers. In a recent photo where she is holding a dog and wearing zero makeup, she got more than 2 million likes on Instagram
9. Chrissy Teigen
The right photo was posted by John Legend (Chrissy’s husband) himself with the caption, “No filter necessary.” However, Teigen never feels shy about showing her real self to her audience. She has even posted a makeup-free video talking about how her skin changes during periods.
8. Carrie Underwood
Carrie is also among those celebrities who post their makeup-free selfies on Instagram. The right photo was taken after her workout at the gym and had the following comment from Carrie, “When your face matches your shirt = you had a good workout! Unless your shirt is blue…then maybe you should be concerned!”
7. Sarah Michelle Gellar
“This is me, right after my first Tabata class. The joke was on me. I thought my friend said to meet for ciabatta,” — that’s the comment Sarah left to her Instagram post, having added #nomakeup and #nofilter tags. Do you also post #nomakeup selfies on your Instagram?
6. Jessica Biel
Justin Timberlake’s wife and talented actress, Jessica Biel, has recently inspired her Instagram followers to show the real part of themselves and started with herself. The caption to her photo was talking about spreading self-love and using zero filters and zero makeup, which got support from many of her followers.
5. Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys is known for her choice to go makeup-free and it’s actually strange to see her wearing makeup, rather than not wearing it. 3 months ago, Alicia posted a video where she was pondering upon what changes are all about, not wearing any makeup at all.
4. Jennifer Lopez
50-year-old J.Lo doesn’t hesitate to share her natural-looking face with her followers. The happy mother of 2 looks as radiant and fresh without makeup as the young contestants from Miss Universe.
3. Lena Headey
Lena, who played Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, recently shared a photo of herself sunbathing without any base foundation or makeup. Her freckles look very sweet on her face that’s all lit up by the sunshine.
2. Adriana Lima
The Victoria’s Secret Angel’s makeup-free look proves that there is nothing stronger than a woman’s natural beauty. Though Adriana’s photo with makeup (left) actually gained more likes than the one without it (right), still we believe she looks more stunning with the “bare” face.
Kesha started this year with a wonderful resolution and posted it on Twitter saying, “This year my resolution is to love myself… just as I am. And to let my freckles liiiiiiiive…” We totally support Kesha and are happy to see those cute freckles on her face.
