29 Celebrities With & Without Makeup: From Regular Person to Red Carpet Ready!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Once upon a time, seeing a female celebrity without makeup was like spotting a unicorn.

It just didn't happen. And when it did, it was a complete accident and the star went into hiding until said event was no longer in the tabloids.

This was, of course, pre-Google Images and to a lesser degree, celebrity gossip sites.

Then Instagram came along and stars took matters into their own hands. Instead of having paparazzi leak pictures of them looking like regular people, they'd just share them for free.

Suddenly celebrities without makeup became a thing we celebrated, as Hollywood's hottest and most successful women decided to say "hey, we're just like you when we wake up." 

But we thought it would be interesting to do a side-by-side comparison of some stars with and without makeup just to see how much that magical miracle makeup made a difference.

The results are, in some cases, quite apparent. (In addition to being really freaking talented, some stars were also blessed with amazing skin. We hate them. And love them. But hate them.)

Barbie with no makeup


What do they mean NO MAKEUP?!?
I mean look at khloe, you mean to tell me that SHE HAS NO MAKEUP?
Bullshit, utter bullshit
The reason they look like that to begin with is due to all those ridiculous impurities they apply to their skin. I only wear simply eyeliner and lipstick and my skin has not seen a single flaw in YEARS


Khloe is definitely wearing makeup in # 11


Some of them I really don't know who they are, others are still having makeup on, but hey... No one is perfect.


Bethany looks no different with or with out...same dead pan eyed look


The real find would be to get a picture of Marie Osmond without make-up; I really think there are NO pictures of this woman without all that make-up, wigs, and fake everything; no evidence; maybe the make-up is welded permanently to her face; it does NOT come off! Now, that will be a RARE sight! Yikes!!


I'd love to see whomever wrote this article without makeup. I guess an insecure teenager who thinks celebrities always look perfect needs to see this but why judge these people?


So that's what you look like in reality, Hmmm. You can also check out The Celebrity Acre for more celebrity stuff


Oh look at Lorde. A 17 year old without make up. How brave!


I'm sorry but in Kerry Washington's Case- Makeup or not, I'd still hit that Puzzy!
