Stars Without Makeup

When I wake up in the mornings, I avoid looking in any mirrors. I always look like a trainwreck.

I always feel a little gloomy for a bit, but then realize that not everyone looks like a supermodel right when they roll out of bed.

And looking at photos of celebrities without makeup always makes me feel a little better...

Not feeling like you're having a good face day?

Check out these stars without makeup:




































What do you think? Are you feeling a little bit better now? Who do you think looks best without face paint?

I think J.Lo & Vanessa Hudgens look THE BEST in their natural and/or spiced up ways. Heidi Klum & Eva Longoria look better WITH makeup. The others look fine however, but clearly, Kate Moss has aged, even though I like her with or without makeup.

Hope life is treating you well,
H :) xoxo

I think Jennifer Lopez doesn't look so bad without make-up on.


Happy Thursday!

Vanessa looks by far the best but it's normal since she's the youngest. I actually like how my face without make-up, talk about modesty :)) Honestly, I barely use make-up when I am outside, I use it only when I take pictures for my blog. Women should be more confident, make-up isn't their best asset, attitude is.

Ashley said...

Haha I always get a twisted pleasure out of seeing celebs without makeup on! I think anyone could look like a "celeb" if you had a team whose sole job was to make you look good!

It always helps to remember how much help celebrities have to look amazing! No one can look that good right away.

i love how they play with the make up

good post :)

Imogen said...

I love this post. Its so creative and made me feel happy to see that everyone looks different without makeup. For me, J Lo looks the most radically different and Kirsten Dunst definitely looks like she just got out of bed. I personally think that Vanessa is one of the better looks without makeup but she is younger so that may have something to do with it.

Definitely J. Lo and Vanessa Hudgens. I think Eva Longoria is gorgeous but that is not a good picture. To be fair, we all have bad pictures too where it doesn't look like us. Of course ours aren't published on the internet.

p.s. Kate Moss, see what years of smoking and hard partying do to your face!

Bug said...

I sure do! It's nice to see celebrities in the real state. Thanks for the eye opener.

Its amazing how they change. They look almost like a different person, I have noticed that when there in there natural look the clothes they wear aren't as nice as the glammed up side of them :)

This post just made my day! Thanks :)

Audrey Allure said...

Haha I do feel better, since I am sitting here without makeup on :) As much as I don't like her, I think Vanessa looks great without makeup, and J.Lo comes a close second. But ouch at Kate Moss!

It's amazing what makeup can do!

I suppose it just shows how much makeup can change your looks! I actually don't think Vanessa looks bad at all.

Nads said...

Its amazing how happy we women can be when photos like these surface...and its amazing how transforming makeup can be. Thank God for makeup eh?

Leia said...

I do feel better, in a perverse sort of way! Haha.

Tights Lover said...

Wow. I think my reaction was the same to every one: 'no f'ing way' hahaha. I seriously didn't even recognize a couple of them without the makeup!

Thanks so much for the complement on my music taste! Glad to hear we have a lot in common! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

LyddieGal said...

I think Eva Longoria is still beautiful even if she is much less beautiful than in the serie.

JLO & Vanessa actually look like themselves without makeup!

It's amazing what makeup can do. Ah. Women should love it, but not too much to the point in which they need it.

But woohoo! Stars are human (;

JUST ME said...

I love seeing stars without make-up. Helps us ALL realize that "celebreality" is basically a scam.

Chloe said...

This does make me feel better! Plus when I don't look my best I don't have my picture in magazines and stuff for everyone to see
I think Heidi Klum still looks pretty good without make-up on. Most people wear too much anyway
Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

seeing those pictures i feel much better hahaha!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

haha, there is such a difference! The stars have jillions of dollars to spend on the best makeup artists, hair stylists, etc. etc. so it shouldn't be a surprise that even celebrities are not perfect, but the media loves to trick us. :)

By the way, I have an award for you in my recent post!

I adore this post. It's such a confidence boost. And it shows anyone can be beautiful with enough painting and priming.

Sydnie said...

I definately think J.Lo and Vanessa Hudgens still look gorgeous without makeup. I wish I could look that confident without my "face" on! :) Some of these are incredible!

Ha ha, Kate Moss looked about 70 years old in that picture.

Wynne Prasetyo said...

Vanessa without make up is not that different, but Kate Moss is a mess! hahaha I look bad too when waking up.

Cafe Fashionista said...

I think Vanessa Hudgens looks the best without make-up. She's just adorbs! Nevertheless, when I'm sans make-up, I simply rely on oversized sunnies! :P

Savvy Gal said...

wow.... makeup can do a lot for us gals. : )

Ashley said...

Oh this does make me feel better, thanks love! I mean none of them look terrible but none looks fantastic either. Kate Moss, and don't get me wrong, I think she is amazing, is a reminder of why drugs, alcohol, etc are BAD for you.

xoxo, Ashley

Natasha the whimsical nerd said...

the problem with these photos is that usually the no-makeup ones are of celebrities taking garbage out or something, whereas the makeup photos are on the red carpet or at pro photo shoots. I'd love to see a more controlled juxtaposition with stars smiling in both cases.

Bren said...

J.Lo and Vanessa definitely look best without makeup, but Vanessa should. She's what...20? J.Lo is 40! As a makeup artist, I know how long it takes to transform these celebs. We all could look great if we sat in hair & makeup for 3 hours!

Heather Taylor said...

Jennifer Lopez for sure. Kate Moss looks the worst...tired and gross.
