Makeup is incredible stuff if anything it’s practically magic!
It can give women (and men) the confidence to go about their day while kicking butt at the same time! Who wouldn’t want to have that feeling?
I know some people argue that women shouldn’t get their self-esteem from how they look or their makeup ability, but not every woman can deal without makeup. I know I can’t!
It’s a well-known fact that makeup has been around for centuries.
It all started off with the Egyptians, where both men and women wore it to show off their wealth and status. However, it also had some practical uses.
For thousands of years, women have experimented with their makeup by using different products to accentuate certain facial features—and to conceal blemishes and unfashionable areas of the face.
While there’s no denying that there’s a beauty in a bare face, it has to be said that makeup can make things a little fun! Especially when you’re experimenting with new makeup looks.
Unfortunately, while makeup can be used as a fun tool to transform yourself, it’s also used to pressure us into looking a certain way.
Some people still believe that if you don’t wear makeup, you’re lazy, ugly, and a lesser person. But, if you wear too much makeup then you’re attention seeking, you’ve got loose morals, and so on…
Seriously, it’s almost impossible to win this battle!
The people most susceptible to this pressure with makeup are celebrities. Why? Because we view them as these flawless beings who are glamourous 24-7!
myself included, have a flawless image of what celebrities are like in our heads.
This unrealistic expectation often helps to remind us that celebrities are ‘different’ from us.
Obviously, this isn’t true.
If anything this train of thought helps us alienate ourselves from those elites of Hollywood.
The truth is, celebrities wear makeup too, just like us! But they don’t wear it all day, every day.
That would be terrible for their skin! So sometimes, they go makeup-less, something we rarely see.
Here are a few celebrities who look different without makeup!
1. Anne Hathaway
The Devil Wears Prada star looks completely different without her signature Hollywood look!
When you consider how old Madonna is, she still looks amazing!
3. Cara Delevigne
At the risk of sounding like Buddalo Bill, Cara has lovely skin!
4. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has to be the prime example of someone who doesn’t age! Even at 48 and with no makeup, the singer/actress looks amazing!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night…🎄I have a ritual every year once everyone is asleep I like to go sit by the tree and think about the year that just went by. Check in on how I feel right in that moment about everything in my life. The magic of the sparkly tree always takes me away into my thoughts and feelings… and this year I can honestly say my heart is full. This year had its ups and downs but as I sit here in my living room w my coconuts sleeping soundly upstairs, all of us healthy, a house full of family and friends, I feel surrounded by love and overflowing with gratitude for the many new blessings in my life!!! Merry Christmas everyone ❤️

7. Kim Kardashian
@kkwbeauty Powder Contour & Highlight Kits dropping next week! If I could only have one thing in my makeup bag, it would be my powder kit! There are two matte contour shades and two shimmer highlight shades in each palette and a new dual-ended brush with an angled side for contour and a round side for highlight. Plus each palette comes with a built in mirror. I'll use the lighter shade as a bronzer to warm up my face and the darker shade to contour and define. And the highlighters give the prettiest glow! I usually use the medium kit when I'm tan, and the light when I'm pale. Launching 08.22 on KKWBEAUTY.COM

13. Adriana Lima
Adriana never fails to impress us with her beauty!
This is not a complain, just sharing a little bit of my life. Sometimes, people question, that model life is easy, and that's wrong, we work as hard as any other individual. Today I had 10 hours of work day, shooting with a very bad cold, coughing no stop and a massive headache. That did not stopped me on doing what I love. I finished, went to airport, to comeback home to see my 2 princesses. Arriving there, my flight was over 3 hours delayed. I fly from NYC to Miami. Just waked home 2am. Happy to be here. And wanted to share the face of a hard working model, and share that I am not the only one that works this hard. Thank you. And I hope my message don't get misunderstand. Love u all

Zendaya has no problem going bare face for the cameras, but with skin like that, who can blame her?
