We’re all for celebs and normal people alike doing whatever they want when it comes to their beauty routine, but it’s truly a breath of fresh air to see plenty of celebs embracing the no-makeup life. And the latest celebrity to embrace no makeup is none other than Paris Jackson, who walked the red carpet last night without a drop of makeup on.
The 19-year-old stepped out at last night’s People‘s Ones to Watch event, letting her natural beauty shine without any contouring, airbrushing, or filtering.
Jackson has discussed before about unrealistic beauty standards for women, telling i-D magazine in August “the idea that we all have to fit one idea of beauty is outrageous and ridiculous because ‘perfection’ is just an opinion.” She said, “I can’t fit into a runway sample size of designer clothes, I have scars and stretch marks and acne and I have cellulite.”
“I still have countless insecurities and fears, like everyone else I know,” she added. “But we’re getting there, slowly but surely. Which is a big reason I want to change this fashion/beauty stigma, so it’s not as difficult for people around the world to feel beautiful just the way they are.”
Plenty of famous faces have been showing off their makeup-free looks, from Jennifer Garner to Kylie Jenner (yes, really!), but attending a star-studded event barefaced save for a little lip balm? Now that’s statement-making.
