Makeup can do wonder to anybody’s appearance, regardless of profession or how much money they have.
When applied properly (or even better, by professionals), even a simple set of makeup tools can make you look completely different from your own natural self.
Some people actually apply a large amount of specific cosmetics to cover almost the entire facial area, such as what you see in clowns and scary-looking characters in horror movies.
For the vast majority of us, makeup simply is a tool to enhance appearance with which we can highlight our best facial features and somewhat conceal the less flattering parts at the same time.
This is the most common usage and benefit of makeup; a function embraced and loved by people from just about every walk of life.
While there is nothing outlandishly weird about men wearing makeup, biggest consumers of this product category are women, including many A-list celebrities.
Some of your favorite celebs actually look a bit different when they don’t have anything applied to their faces, and thankfully most of the time they do look better without makeup.
10 Jennifer Lawrence
Winter’s Bone is a mystery drama film in which Jennifer Lawrence played as Ree Dolly and made her major breakthrough.
It was a decade ago, and she has come a long way since. At some points in her swift-advancing Hollywood career, she was once the highest-paid female actor in the world.
It seems that she can only continue to grow better in the profession, but one thing will always remain true about Lawrence: natural beauty.
Although she is not one of those celebrities who constantly post their bare-faced photos on social media, some of her candid photos circulating online give a glimpse on how naturally beautiful she really is.
9 Lady Gaga
For too many times we see Lady Gaga in some of the most unusual and often downright bizarre public appearances thanks to her unconventional approaches to makeup and fashion.
This is why it feels quite pleasant and refreshing to see her bare natural face every now and then.
We have seen her dressed in a pile of meat, sporting a hairdo that looked like bird’s nest, and even wearing ghost-like makeup, but her preference for outlandish style seems to have slowed down.
Many of her more recent photos showcase her natural beauty, and what a relief that is for many people.
8 Sofia Vergara
At the age of 17, Sofia Vergara made her first appearance in a Pepsi commercial that was aired in Latin America. Her career continues to move forward and in 2012 she was the highest-earning woman in U.S. television. When it comes to natural beauty, Vergara has plenty that deserve admiration.
She has appeared so many times on red carpet events with her face all covered in makeup, so it is nothing strange if you cannot instantly recognize her in a more casual setting.
Now that you’ve seen her bare face, your only complaint is that you don’t get to see it more often.
7 Gwyneth Paltrow
Perhaps you’ll be surprised to learn that Gwyneth Paltrow’s acting career began in 1989, because she had not gained a lot of attention until she appeared in the movie Seven alongside Brad Pitt, and later in Shakespeare in Love, which won her an Academy Award.
Paltrow always looks amazing on movies and TV, and now we know that it is not just because of the makeup she wears; the makeup does play some role, but the truth is that Paltrow is blessed with naturally pretty face already.
Whether or not the products from Goop, a company she funded, help her maintain the natural beauty is a question remains to be answered.
