Although we love a full-coverage glam makeup look on a Kardashian just as much as the next person, we also love when they showcase a pared-back look on occasion. This time, it was Kourtney Kardashian who shared a bare-faced snap with her 50 million Instagram followers – and we think she looks stunning!
Despite having her own makeup line, Flower Beauty, Drew Barrymore loves to share makeup-free selfies on the regular. This time the actress posted a snap to her Instagram posing bare-faced on the beach captioning the pic “Happy Sunday everyone. Happy Sunday!”
The down to earth beauty went completely barefaced for the August cover of Glamour magazine. The actress is wearing nothing more than a serum, eye cream and lip balm, and we absolutely love it.
A usually-done-up Gwen Stefani shocked everyone with this makeup free selfie, proving the singer is just as stunning (possibly even more so) without makeup. We want to know everything we can her skin care routine!
