Makeup is practically magic because of its confidence-giving properties. Some women, however, prefer not to use it and that’s totally fine: it’s all down to personal choice and individual preference.
Everything started off with the Egyptians: in Ancient Egypt, both men and women wore makeup to show their wealth and status. For thousands of years, women have been playing around with it by using different products and tools.
While there is definitely beauty in a bare face, who says you can’t have a little fun?
But sometimes people are fast to judge one’s appearance and those who feel most pressured to keep up with this whole “looking flawless all the time” concept are celebrities.
No matter how famous they are, at the end of the day, they’re people, just like us.
While we rarely see most celebs going makeup-free, it’s all the more commendable when they do. Here are nineteen who braved the natural look on social media.
1. Anne Hathaway
She looks completely different without her signature Hollywood look
Still amazing at 59!
3. Cara Delevigne
Cara definitely has a clear and amazing skin
4. Jennifer Lopez

J-Lo is the ultimate example of someone who doesn’t age. Being 48 and looking like this is literally life goals.
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 ❤️
5. Selena Gomez
Can you see this smooth skin?
6. Angelina Jolie
Proving once again she’s a natural beauty
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 prove her real 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
