Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / June 25 2020
As much as we all love checking out the most glamourous red carpet beauty looks, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as seeing your favourite celebrities totally makeup-free.
And this year, the A-listers have already been dishing out some seriously stunning makeup-free selfies, reminding us that sometimes the best beauty looks involve no cosmetics at all.
To inspire your next ‘makeup-free day,’ here are the best bared-faced celebrity selfies of 2020 - so far.
Demi Lovato revealed a smattering of adorable freckles in her fresh-faced selfie on Instagram along with a meaningful message:
"Haven’t done a #NoMakeupMonday in years but I figured after posting so many glamorous pics with tons of makeup and hairpieces, it’s important to show myself underneath it all. This is what I look like 85%-90% of the time. Proud of my freckles, proud of booty chin and proud of myself for loving and accepting myself the way I am. 🖤 #ILoveMe."
After supplying guests with a week’s supply of Goop supplements, Gwyneth invited a slew of successful women to arrive fresh-faced for a makeup-free dinner at her place. The Goop-founder looked positively glowing while snapping this selfie with actress Demi Moore and artist Alexandra Grant.
While preparing for a trip, Lily took the opportunity to snap a quick makeup-free selfie captioning her photo: “Packing procrastinator.” With flawless skin and naturally-flushed cheeks, she couldn’t look more dreamy.
Not many people could pull off pastel pink hair while rocking a ‘no-makeup day’ look but evidently Lady Gaga can. The superstar musician looked radiant while stepping out with just a slick of clear lip gloss.
Snuggling up for a cuddle with her adopted shelter dog Johnny Utah, Charlize couldn’t have looked more beautiful. Just get a load of that perfect skin and those flawless brows. Heavenly!
Uploading a bare-faced selfie with the caption: “First selfie of the year doe. #2020,” Rihanna had no qualms about showing off a small breakout around her chin area. Best of all, when a follower commented: “Let me pop your pimple,” she clapped-back in true RiRi-form saying: “Let her have her shine, PLEASE."
In case you weren’t aware, Salma Hayek has an affectionate obsession with animals. The actress recently shared a no-makeup selfie showcasing her stunning complexion and full brows. There just so happened to be an owl on top of her head too, who is, let’s be honest, the real star of the show here. She captioned the adorable pic: “When you fall asleep with your glasses on and an owl on your head.” Honestly, same Salma, same.
Lady Gaga has blessed us all with a radiant summertime selfie sans makeup, and it appears the pop star is living her best life poolside. Sporting freckled, sun-kissed skin and perfectly groomed brows, Mother Monster is serving us natural beauty realness and we are *living* for it. To quote Paris Is Burning,”I don’t know why y’all gagging. She bring it to you every season.”
We don’t know how she’s done it but Jessica Simpson looks exactly the same as she did pre-Nick Lachey. The singer posted a stunning makeup-free selfie while signing copies of her new book Open Book, complete with loose waves and tie dye ensemble. We love.
