Have you ever just starred at the cover of Cosmopolitan and thought “Damn, I wish I could look like that?” Well, thanks to things like air brushing and photoshop, you can! The perception of beauty that is being advertised today is ridiculously unattainable. The movie stars that we dream of looking like are actually real people. What you see on television or in the magazines is far from reality, you can thank their personal make-up artists for that. Cut yourself some slack and look at these 15 celebrities without makeup.
1. Kate Moss
Kate Moss has one of the most famous faces in the modeling world! But here she looks like your average plain Jane. Even supermodels can’t be ready for their close-up all the time.
2. Kate Hudson
Here’s Kate at about to board a plane LAX. Obviously, she still looks beautiful without make-up, but we can definitely see more of her age when she goes bare-faced. Still, we appreciate that she travels naturally.
3. Debra Messing
Messing always stunned when she was playing Grace Alder on the NBC series, Will & Grace, but here we can see the miracles of makeup! I think Karen would need a drink after catching a glimpse of Debra sans foundation.
4. Diana Ross
She captivates an audience when she’s on stage with her powerful voice, but when she’s in the local grocery store, makeup free, we hardly recognize the famous songstress. This is one of the celebrities without makeup we might walk on by.
5. Courtney Cox
It’s hard to imagine that this face is 48 years old! Courtney still looks young and fresh without her face all painted up. Her blue eyes look brighter too!
6. Anne Hathaway
Here Hathaway is taking her dog for a walk in NYC. Should we get her some cheese? Hathaway’s pale face reminds us of something…Stuart Little!
7. Bethenny Frankel
Bethenny Frankel has been going through a stressful divorce lately and we’re starting to see some wrinkles because of it. Still, it’s nice to see the famous housewife looking more “real.”
8. Julianne Hough
This famous dancer looks beautiful with or without makeup. But we’re loving this fresh-faced look as she travels through the airport. Her green eyes look amazing! She’s one of our celebrities without makeup that doesn’t really need the cosmetic enhancement.
9. Nicollette Sheridan
Nicolette looks a bit “desperate” without her makeup on. Here, the 50 year old is picking up some coffee from Starbucks. If only caffeine eliminated wrinkles!
10. Katie Couric
The ABC News host looks a bit different here leaving the gym than she did on her show, “Katie.” But we’re still glad she didn’t get all “glammed up” to go out for a coffee.
11. Kathy Griffin
This funny lady was all smiles at a Hawaiian beach, donning a cute red polka dot bikini and a natural face. We’re glad she could laugh about it.
12. Janice Dickinson
Famously known as the world’s “first supermodel,” Dickinson can be seen here sipping a green tea smoothie with a bed hair and a makeup free face. Green tea has lots of antioxidants so she’s probably trying to do something about those wrinkles!
Here’s Tyra on the streets of NYC. The America’s Next Top Model host looks beautiful without the help of her glam squad, but she still looks very different from her magazine covers.
14. Kelly Clarkson
The American Idol star definitely looks different arriving to her NYC hotel without her makeup than she does on stage. But, we still love her cute girl next door look!
15. Sofia Vegara
The Columbian bombshell looks a bit different on the red carpet than she does here, heading to the gym in LA. Still, how can we deny how naturally beautiful she is? We hate people who get all dolled up for the gym anyway!
