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!


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.”


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!

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!

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.


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!


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.

Halle Berry

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

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).

Lauren London

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



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.


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.

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!
