Being a celeb isn’t all fun and games, my friends. With paparazzi lurking around every corner waiting to capture that perfect “celebs without makeup!” tabloid cover, it can be a hard to keep up that perfect facade. You can almost (almost) understand why the Kardashians don’t leave the house without two inches of makeup on.

So it’s seriously refreshing when celebs share a side of themselves we rarely see — a makeup-free face. The following ladies chose to bare it all to their fans on Instagram, showing us their beauty in a whole new light!

1Tyra Banks

Tyra is no stranger to promoting positive self-image and a recent Instagram post is no different. The supermodel posted a no-makeup selfie, showing no fear when it came to her au-naturale self. She even called out other celebs for faking the no-makeup instagram selfies. Her caption read:

“You know how people say #nofilter but you know there’s a freakin’ filter on their pic? Or maybe there’s a smidge of retouching going on but they’re lying and saying it’s all raw & real? Well, this morn, I decided to give you a taste of the really real me. I wanted to smooth out my dark circles so badly!!! But I was like, “Naw, Ty. Show ’em the REAL you.” So….here I am. Raw. And there YOU are…looking at me, studying this picture. Maybe you’re thinking, “Whoa, she looks ROUGH.” And if you are, great! You deserve to see the REAL me. The REALLY real me. #RawAndReal.”  

That’s the reason why we love her. Go Tyra!

  • Isabel

    Some of these definitely have makeup. I understand the positive message, but claiming all of these are makeup free does no one any good.

    • marcdraco

      Not just makeup, Isabel, lighting (and poor quality selfie cameras – which ironically HIDE flaws) have a lot to answer for here. Tyra Banks is about the most honest of the lot.

      Age, exposure to the sun (for lighter skinned people), diet and good ol’ fashioned genetics have a huge influence.
