While we know not everyone is ready to hop on the no-makeup train (sometimes a girl just needs her concealer), we love it when our fave celebs post makeup-free pics on social media. Bare-faced selfies show stars like Kylie Jenner in a refreshing light, while also giving their skin a much-needed break from endless layers of product. We’re gonna cross our fingers and hope that Kylie’s latest no-makeup selfie caption, “no makeup Tuesdays,” becomes an Insta-standard. We’ve rounded up 13 famous ladies and their fresh-faced selfies that prove less is definitely more.
1. Lady Gaga: Move over, hair bows and meat dresses — this candid shot of Gaga jamming to a live performance from The Dirty Pearls in a T-shirt without any makeup on might just be our fave look from the fashion-forward chameleon yet. Nothing says carefree summer days like a bare face.
2. Gwen Stefani: Gwen’s no-makeup selfie hits just keep on coming! En route to a show in San Diego, Gwen’s ear-to-ear grin radiates pure excitement and beauty inside and out.
3. Chrissy Teigen: Captioned, “Yes I am on the floor having a dog photo shoot hoping no one comes in.” TBH, all we want in life is to be Chrissy’s BFF. And Chrissy, if you could write a book on mastering the art of the bun updo and glowing skin, that would be perf.
4. Gigi Hadid: Even on the rainiest of days, this supermodel’s natural beauty can’t stop shining through. Also, where can we find that amazing tee?
5. Beyoncé: With a flower crown, freckles and gorgeous makeup-free skin, it’s official — Queen Bey was totally a goddess in another life. If only our Insta could be this majestic.
6. Daisy Ridley: The force is strong with Daisy in her close-up selfie. With a simple caption and perfectly casual hair, we can’t get over her beauty. We’re pretty sure there is some filter action going on here, though…
7. Selena Gomez: We are all Selena and Co. in this post-SoulCycle workout pic — except we would probably be a lot less natural glow and more super sweaty with a touch of B.O. Gotta love her spin-perfect top knot.
8. Hilary Duff: Yes to both the “nope” top and the radiant no-makeup skin from this singer-actress-mom extraordinaire. From the expression on her face, we can tell that Hilary is not having it.
9. Amy Schumer: We won’t lie — we LOL’d hard at the actress-comedian’s caption, “So nervous. I’m up next. #missuniverse.” She’s obviously the Miss Universe of our hearts with this bare-faced, bundled up winter look.
10. Lorde: Being unafraid to post a gorgeous pre-bedtime selfie in acne cream is what makes Ella a true royal. We’ve all been there, Lorde. We’ve all been there.
11. Julianne Hough: Jules lets loose with a #trueself hashtag encouraging fans to let their guard down and allow their true self to shine without makeup. Just check out those baby blues on her fresh face!
12. Carrie Underwood: Post workout sesh, Carrie snaps a makeup-free selfie starring Penny, her loyal (and adorable) pup. Her caption might say that she’s a “sweaty mess,” but from where we’re sitting, she’s pure glow!
13. Jennifer Lopez: So… we’re like, 1000% sure J.Lo hasn’t aged a day since On the 6 dropped in 1999. Skip dropping a new album — we need her vibrant beauty routine secrets!
