When you’re in the limelight, it almost goes without saying that you almost always have to look your best. So while we may question why a celeb is going to the grocery store in full show attire and makeup, they’re really just playing their part. But sometimes, even they have to give it a rest and we definitely support seeing natural beauty so here are a few of our fave ladies fresh faced (for the most part) and makeup free!

"BeyNoMakeup"

Life&Gossip

Beyonce

By all accounts, this is one of the few times we’ve ever seen Bey with little to no makeup on (I mean, she has on a little gloss). That’s a pretty woman, with or without “face.”

"rihannaNomakeup"

SodaHead

Rihanna

If you like to look at celeb pics like me, then you know this isn’t the only pic of Rih out and about with no makeup. As a matter of fact, when she was over in London a couple of weeks ago, we caught a few glimpses with her face scrubbed down!

"QueenLatifahNoMakeup"

The BoomBox

Queen Latifah

Don’t let that CoverGirl endorsement fool you: when Latifah isn’t working, she is almost always makeup and weave free! I think she’s way more comfortable that way. I mean, who ALWAYS wants to have makeup on? She has nice skin!

"KatyPerryNoMakeup"

Pop On The Pop

Katy Perry

Katy’s now ex-husband, Russell Brand took this picture of her with no makeup on and posted it on Twitter for all the world to see. Do you think that was the beginning of the end for them? LOL, okay probably not but you have to wonder what would make a man do that?! Some women aren’t comfy with people see the “real” them, especially when we’re relaxing. Katy looks okay to me – she seems to use makeup to give her more of a tan, if you will.

"OprahNoMakeup"

Necessary Beauty

Oprah

During the last couple of seasons of the show, it seemed Lady O was a little more comfortable showing us what happens behind the scenes, including hair and makeup.  I think Oprah has great skin!

"TyraNoMakeup"

EGO Living

Tyra

I LOVE how Tyra, when she had her talk show, began revealing who she really was to us. Weave OUT and makeup OFF is how she would often show pictures of herself.  It’s no secret that Tyra has quite the forehead and as much as she’s worked, it would be expected that she’d have some bags under her eyes but she still looks pretty.

"HalleBerryNoMakeup"

Posh24

Halle Berry

I mean, what can you even say?! Halle is just a stunning woman.

"KellyRowlandNoMakeup"

BOSSIP

Kelly Rowland

Hands down, she is my FAVORITE of the bunch. Kelendria, as I like to call her (like we’re friends or something), is a GORGEOUS woman.  It comes as no surprise to me that she looks almost the same without makeup as she does when she has it on. Beautiful skin, great smile…just flawless! (I may not stan for her music but I stan for HER).

"LaurenLondonNoMakeup"

Necole Bitchie

Lauren London

Lauren has always had such a fresh face – why hasn’t she done Noxzema ads or something?! Such a cutie pie.

 

"EveNoMakeup"

Top Socialite

Eve

Part of me is posting this because I’m hoping E-V-E will see it and it’ll spark her to come back to music ASAP. Probably not, huh? Well okay, but it’s nice to see her without any make up on.

"CiaraNoMakeup"

BOSSIP

Ciara

Look at Cici (pictured with Will.I.Am) looking like she’s still in high school! But it’s definitely good to see on a work day (she’s probably in the studio…how old is this pic?) she can just relax and not have to worry about being all dolled up.

"KerryWashingtonNoMakeup"

Smart****RichCrazy

Kerry Washington

Kerry is another person we don’t often get to see without makeup.  We all get acne from time to time but I suspect that if she’s still having those problems, she should get a better skin care regimen (if it can be helped at this point). It is so important to let your face breathe sometimes. Other than that though, I think she looks the same and she’s always fly to me!

    Katy Perry’s photo scared the ish out of me!  WTH! 

    The other ladies pictured in this article look nice fresh faced.  Kerry Washing is beautiful san the makeup, but it looks like she picks at here acne and that has caused hyperpigmentation marks.  It definitely can be treated.

  • filtry purflux

  • Ifuaskme2

    makeup only enhances beauty. No surprises here

  • Olivia_vidato

    Kerry  Washington skin is flawless. I say it a few days ago while I was working and she was in uggs and sweats coming down to get a package 9am she was beautiful. Thats must be a old picture 

  • Amija

    Sorry, Kerry Washington scared me!  

    Most of the women on here including Bey need their makeup!

    Tyra, Eve, Kelly and Lauren London still looked pretty, but the other women should never leave the house without makeup on.  Only because they have images to keep up.

  • miche

    I don’t care what anyone says….Oprah has the most beautiful hair in the world!!!!….period!…she can wear that hair in any shape, form, fashion, style, whatever….now THAT’S “good” hair!!…so versatile is the black hair…love it!!

  • universal

    Kerry Washington essentially looks the same,but that ish CRAY. I would have never guessed that was what lies beneath. Like seriously, she fava giraffe with those speckles.
    Kelly,Lauren,Halle(of course),and somewhat Tyra look great and about the same without makeout.
    Beyonce.. Dare I say it.. Looks a bit cheesy and Natalie Nunn like (playdo chin). She has better pics,she’s released herself..o_O
    Riwhina also joined the cheesy committee/Grease Monkeys of America.
    Oprah looks Chinafrikan,not bad at all.Especially in comparison to the face we see everyday.. Can’t beat that mug.

  • Not all were great looking w/o make up, but that’s expected. Some women really have great, natural skin. Tyra, Halle, Lauren, Kelendra (didn’t know that was her gov’t name…good lookin on that) are prime examples. Not all can be born with fab skin but we can try to take care of it and just try to be happy in your own skin. Right ? —U can buy your hair if it won’t grow, u can fix ya nose if he says so,  u can buy all the make-up that mac can make but if u can’t look inside u find out who am to 2 b in the position to make me feel so damn unpretty—- Woo and speaking of TLC all three have/had beautifully natural skin…rip left eye

    Halle Berry had plastic surgery just like everyone else. If I had a surgeon and a good make up artist i’d look flawless everyday too!

  • The ONLY 1 i thought  who looked very beautiful was Kelly… she looked FABULOUS & fresh 2 def! n i dont really like her music but Yay Kelly!

  • juliemango

    Tyra is flawless, Ri looks good – her eyes stndout more without makeup, Kelly is very cute n surprising, Ciara looks like a kid, Kerry so beautiful sans black marks, Katie P – so unfortunate in that pic – badRussel, Bey looks ok. Better are othr nudefaced pics I’ve seen or her. The hair got in the way with this one!!!

  • Business406

    Why post that pic of Kerry? That was mean. Anyway, makeup
    Is harsh on your skin and if worn heavy on a daily basis will eventually eat your face.

  • Smacks_hoes

    I love tyras skin the most. It seems as if it was glowing.

  • Halle Berry looks good with or without make up.

  • Monique

    Kelly Roland is BEAUTIFUL

  • REAL REAL TALK

    AND THEY ALL LOOK UGLY JUST GOES TO SHOW WHAT WONDERS  MAKE UP CAN DO????

      u r just really very hurtful! downright evil!!!! would u like it if somebdy said u were ugly? y dont u post a pic of urself… hurt ppl hurt!!! stop being like that! that’s ugly!!!!

  • Guest

    I wonder if Kerry Washington bleaches her skin. The type of facial scarring she has indicates she may bleach her skin.

    • Smacks_hoes

      It just looks like plain hyperpigmentation to me. NOohing out of the ordinary for women of color

      • Guest

        I think you are right. I just researched hyperpigmentation and what she has looks more like that. I wish I could delete my previous comment.

  • LaTasha

    I love the picture of tyra and kerry washington. They have great natural beauty!

  • Love_Sexy

    I stated from another post how many stars are just average looking w/o makeup (nothing great)….Its amazing how Hollywood makeup/hair artists can transform people to look completely different……They truly have a gift…….You can take an unknown woman walking down the street that look just as good as (or even better) the women listed and touch her up alittle….I bet the woman would turn out to be just as beautiful or better than these women……JMO!

    • awet

      Of course they look average, they are real people who happen to be celebrities.

    • Kaleitha

      I think the other difference is, these women have that “something”.  It may be easy to make someone beautiful, but not so easy to make someone a star…that can last.

  • Chick#1

    WHAT THE EFF IS THE DEAL WITH THOSE AUTOMATIC, ANNOYING, AND LOUD A** (DEPENDING ON YOUR BROWSER’S VOLUME) ADVERTISEMENTS THAT KEEP POPPING UP AGAINST MY WILL ON MADAM NOIRE AS WELL AS BOSSIP AND OTHERS. CAN THE CORPORATIONS THAT OWN THESE WEBSITES CUT THAT OUT, BECAUSE IT’S MADDENING !!!!!!!!!!! I UNDERSTAND IT’S ALL ABOUT MONEY, BUT IF YOU WANNA ADVERTISE, DO IT THROUGH BANNERS, BUT ENOUGH OF THAT OTHER STUFF. SURFING THE NET USED TO BE A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE, BUT NOW ITS A DREADFUL ONE, AND IT GETS WORSE EVERY DAY, DAMN!

    • Caribbeanqueen

       dat is the most annoying thing ever!!! and nothing i do is stopping them from popping up! i’m going to have to stop frequenting this site… it annoys the crap out of me!

  • kellybanks

    somebody tell beyonce she is not a 23 year old california surfing girl with that unnatural a** blonde hair and fake eyelashes always.! She looks a mess

    • Caribbeanqueen

       hi hater!!!! *rolls eyes*

  • smitty202

    halle is the most beautiful woman alive. 
    period. don’t argue because your lame if you do lol

  • FromUR2UB

    Oprah is usually hideous without makeup, but that one’s not too bad.
     
    That’s what Katy Perry looks like without makeup?  She shouldn’t have any trouble blending in with a crowd if she wanted to.  

  • Chanda

    Most of them still look flawless I mean none of us are perfect.

  • J A SASSY aka salon22

    katy perry looks scary crazy.

  • Sugar_Spice

    I have to respectfully disagree with you regarding Katy Perry but it looks like her ProActive is working!
