We are used to seeing their flawless faces covered in makeup.

And while it’s often a shocker when a celebrity decides to go au natural – looking bland, dull and unlike their painted selves – there are those Hollywood stars who still deliver an enviable selfie with their naked countenance. 

Here are eight of our favourites:

Amber Rose

The short-haired stunner delivers sass and spunk whenever she takes to social media. And even when she’s posting a toned-down version of herself, she still gives us life!


If it weren’t for her protruding belly, we’d never guess the sexy songstress was pregnant (with her second child, her first with husband Russell Wilson). Ciara’s perfectly sculpted face bares not even a dash of makeup and she looks amazing! 

Sofia Vergara

The Modern Family actress might even look better makeup-less. Joe Manganiello’s wife shared a selfie while she was battling a nasty cold. She is flawless!

Kim Kardashian West

Sure, she’s probably done some facial coverage in this sexy shot, but Kimmie looks gorgeous without all those added layers of face paint. The natural look might be something she’d want to consider keeping up with. 


Is there anything RiRi cannot do? Whether it’s provocative outfits, bold ensembles or opting for the makeup-free look. She’s always giving us life!

Alicia Keys

Since her decision to go completely natural, the beautiful singer has shown that you don’t need multiple coats of powder and paint to look stunning. The Girl On Fire hit-maker leaves us wanting to revel in our naturalness! 

Taylor Swift

Fresh-faced and innocent – that’s what the singer looks like without face paint. Although, she might want to avoid going makeup-free now, considering that the music video of her latest single, Look What You Made Me Do, suggests the Taylor of old has been laid to rest. 

Kendall Jenner

The second youngest of the Kardashian clan looks near perfect in her bare-faced picture.
