These Celebrities Are Unbelievably Stunning Without Makeup
Images from Christina Aguilera’s makeup-free photoshoot for Paper were released this week and the internet is buzzing with praise. The fresh-faced singer looks absolutely stunning and we are so here for her natural look. We’re seriously in awe of how stunning Christina looks, and her freckles are just adorable.
While we love glamorous makeup, it’s refreshing to see bare-faced celebrities rock their natural beauty. In honor of Christina’s stripped-down look, here are some of our favorite celebrities gracing magazine covers without makeup.
Actress Kerry Washington graced the cover of Allure sans-makeup back in 2014. The actress might have a bit of eyeliner on, but it’s nothing compared to the full glam looks we usually see on magazine covers. Of course Kerry looks gorgeous, and we’re getting major off-duty 1950’s movie star vibes from her tousled hairstyle.
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen bared all for the February cover of Vogue Italia. Straying from the usual glamorous makeup we see her rock on the runway, Gisele gave us an intimate peek into her personal life at home. Her natural beauty is stunning and we definitely see why she’s one of the most successful supermodels in the world.
Mila Kunis went makeup free on the August 2016 cover of Glamour Magazine. The actress was pregnant at the time, and revealed that she only had skin serum, eye cream and lip balm on. We certainly think that constitutes a makeup free look, and Mila absolutely rocked it.
Alicia Keys has been outspoken about her choice to go makeup free for a long time. In May of 2016 she wrote an essay for Lenny Letter, detailing her thought process behind pledging to go makeup free. She explained:
“I hope to God it’s a revolution. ‘Cause I don’t want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”
We couldn’t be happier with Alicia’s decision. The February 2017 cover of Allure is just one example of the singer owning the no makeup look. She always looks gorgeous and we love the message of empowerment she’s spreading.
We rarely see Kylie Jenner without makeup, but she did appear on the August 2016 cover of Allure Magazine rocking a stripped down look. She admitted to filling in her brows and putting one coat of mascara on her top lashes (and is that a soft pink lipstick we see?), but we’re going to let it slide because Kylie’s wearing significantly less makeup than usual. This cover look will go down in history as one of the most flawlessly executed ‘no makeup, makeup‘ looks ever.
Back in October 2011, pop icon Lady Gaga put her freshest face forward on the cover of Harper’s Baazar. The singer rocked edgy bleach blonde eyebrows and no makeup. After all the insane fashion and makeup looks we’ve seen on Gaga (let’s never forget her head-t0-toe meat outfit at the 2010 VMAs), it’s nice to know she’s an actual human being just like the rest of us. Turns out she can slay just about any makeup look, including no makeup at all.
