Celebrities are basically paid to look good. And whether it’s on stage, on the big screen, or on the red carpet, they always have a ton of money – and professionals – to help them look better than the rest of us. We are used to famous people looking totally flawless, so it can be a bit of a shock when they post pictures of themselves with no makeup! But as the body positivity trend takes hold and more and more people embrace their natural beauty, celebs have jumped on the bandwagon and revealed just how great it is when you shed the mask and let the true you shine!

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is not just a celebrity – she’s a force. Singer, actress, entrepreneur, there’s nothing this diva can’t do. She has kept herself in amazing shape throughout the years, so it’s no surprise that her makeup-free selfie was just as flawless as the rest of her.

With her hair in a tousled top-knot and not a drop of makeup on her face, Lopez revealed just how beautiful she is without all the glitz and glam.

Ariana Grande

Without a doubt, pop star Ariana Grande was always a naturally beautiful girl. The 26-year-old started out her career when she was just a kid, and as she has matured throughout the years she has attempted to transform her style into something sexier and more grown-up.

But when she posted this makeup-free selfie, everyone was reminded of how young she actually looks; without the distraction of dramatic makeup, her flawless complexion and beautiful features take center stage.


Madonna is a pop music legend. Throughout the years, she has given the world some of the most iconic songs – and looks – setting the trends for nearly four decades. At 61 years old, it’s pretty incredible how she has managed to preserve her good looks and stay relevant – she has even released an album in 2019.

Equally impressive was her flawless makeup-free skin in this selfie she posted on Instagram. Her bright, smooth complexion rivals some people who are half her age.

Kim Kardashian-West

Reality show star Kim Kardashian-West rarely shows up anywhere without looking immaculately polished. So when she posted this makeup-free selfie revealing her less-than-perfect complexion, she shocked her fans.

But it was all for good reason: Kardashian-West was trying to foster awareness about her condition, psoriasis, an auto-immune disease which causes red, itchy patches to break out on the skin. Her bravery and honesty are sure to inspire many fans and others who suffer from the condition.
