It might sound like a cliché but being a celebrity often requires having a certain level of attractiveness and more often than not, their looks make them an ideal ambassador for beauty brands and when it comes to posting pictures online or appearing in public, you will never find these celebrities without makeup. So it’s quite refreshing to see celebs sharing their natural side, without makeup of any kind. Here is a list of five brave celebrities who are not afraid to do so.
During her pregnancy American comedian Amy Schumer said this in numerous interviews that she found the experience very hard and she showcased it through pictures on her Instagram feed. In them, Amy can be seen only in her underwear, her stomach protruding towards the mirror and she is completely without make-up. With the pictures, Amy also sent a body positivity message to her followers. In her comments she wrote stuff like “Today I feel beautiful and strong at the same time.” And Amy wouldn’t be Amy if it wasn’t for humorous hashtags like #didntpuke. She also stated this on her show on Netflix that she used to vomit every day. Anyway: We think it’s great that Amy showed what eight month mothers look like. Mercilessly funny, mercilessly honest!
The Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen repeatedly tells in interviews how important a healthy lifestyle is to her. She also regularly shows smoothie and health food pictures in her Instagram feed, and the 40-year-old has launched her own natural cosmetics brand. So it’s no wonder that the beauty every now and then takes make-up-free days – and even makes them public. So Gisele posted a picture of herself and her husband Tom Brady skiing, on which she can be seen completely without make-up and with a helmet hairstyle. We can without a doubt even without make-up and with ski clothes, she is definitely one of the most beautiful women alive.
Video gaming industry is becoming larger by the day, and so are the stars of this industry. One particular area in which gamers have seen incredible success in video gaming streaming, and Imane Anys aka Pokimane is one such figure. She has over 8.5 million followers on her Twitch channel and millions more on Instagram and other social media sites. She is known to rub elbows with celebrities and influential figures like AOC and has used her influence to do good things, like Pokimane No Makeup stream, where she did the whole stream without makeup. Her goal you ask: To promote body positivity.
After the negative headlines about nervous breakdowns, drug problems and custody disputes over the children, Britney Spears has long since recovered. Since 2013 she has been performing in Las Vegas with her own show, repeatedly mentioning in interviews how hard she trains and how happy she is to finally have the “unhealthy times” behind her. And of course Britney is also happy when she has a day off – and then shows herself on Instagram even without make-up. Her comment: “On days when I am not styled for my show, you see my true unglamorous self … nice to meet you all,” jokes the singer in the comment on the post. “I call this my morning coffee-at-home look with #nomakeupmonday. Well, only if you don’t count the leftover mascara under the right eye”.
If anyone is known for their unusual looks, it is probably Lady Gaga aka Stefani Germanotta. The singer and actress loves to transform – and she usually doesn’t skimp on make-up either. But that has changed since the movie “A Star Is Born”. In a statement on the film, the pop star revealed: “During filming, Bradley always encouraged me to be myself – that helped me a lot!” So she posted a portrait of herself on Instagram after her Oscar win – completely without make-up.
Right at the beginning of her promotional tour for the film, Gaga published a picture of herself in which she looked totally natural. We hope that we will now see the 34-year-old from her natural side more often. Ciao Lady Gaga, hello Stefani Germanotta!
