12 Times Celebrities Showed Up Without Makeup

There’s an intriguing initiative shaking things up in Hollywood. It’s called the anti-makeup movement. If you’ve seen Alicia Keys tickling the ivories without all that jazz — on her face — then you get the gist.

But it’s one thing to be 35 and bare your naked face for pubic scrutiny. It’s a whole other thing to be 45, 55, even 65 and eschew the concealer. But we think it’s a good thing, and you will too, when you see these 11 celebrities who showed up without makeup — and looked glorious when they did so.

A Few Years Back

For Vanity Fair’s 20th Hollywood issue in 2014, a few celebs bared it all (above the neck) for photographer/painter Chuck Close, who had a few very strict rules for the shoot. One of the parameters stripped them of their glam squad: “Be responsible for your own look: –No professional styling or hair or makeup.” Here are a few of our favorites.

#NoMakeup #RightNow

Sometimes it doesn’t take a notable shutterbug to coax a starlet out of her comfort zone. Sometimes all it takes is a good mood and the right lighting. Check out a few of our favorite recent bare-face Instagrams and one gorgeous lady turning over a new leaf at nearly 70.
