In the old days, it was almost impossible to see famous people, especially models without makeup. The only time you saw celebrities in the open without makeup was usually when they were going through a scandal of some kind and if that was not the case; people would make a thing out of them being out of makeup. Thankfully times are changing now, more and more celebrities and more importantly models are giving us a behind the curtain look into their everyday lives, where they can be seen without makeup, out and proud. Here is a list of celebrities who are trying to normalize this look.
Singer Demi Lovato is always in the limelight, whether it’s her withdrawal that makes headlines or her argument with Selena Gomez. During her withdrawal, while she was in the hospital, the 29-year-old completely shut herself off from the outside world and also took a break from social media to focus on her recovery. Upon recovery she announced her comeback with a post that not only showed that she was healthy again, but how gorgeous she looked without makeup. The no make-up picture was taken after the workout and the singer captioned it with the “#nevergiveup”. Keep it up Demi!
On November 9, 2018, supermodel Shanina Shaik floated down the catwalk as a beautiful angel, but now the 30-year-old seems to have had enough of model life. After all, such a job with hours of sports, endless styling and the tension before the show is really exhausting. From now on, Shanina relies on casual hours at home in pajamas and completely without make-up and hairstyling. There is nothing left of angel and glamor, rather Shanina looks like one of us after a hard week in the office or at university.
Former OC California star Mischa Barton has been quiet for a long time. No wonder, because the headlines were rolling beforehand. There was talk of drug problems, withdrawal and constant weight fluctuations – little was heard about the acting. Now the 35-year-old seems to have caught herself. Not only has she been appearing in a lot of movies but she’s also looking a lot healthier. So healthy that she can present herself on Instagram without make-up and is hardly recognizable.
When Victoria’s Secret model Taylor Hill floats down the runway, she looks like heaven thanks to makeup artists and stylists. In reality, however, the model is just like us: As some pictures from her Instagram account proves, she struggles with bad hair days and the 25-year-old also suffers from acne. All the more courageous that she is now posting this picture of herself without make-up and is encouraging other women to deal openly with pimples & co. and not let it stress them out so much!
Known online as Pokimane, Imane Anys is a very famous video game streamer. While her primary platform is Twitch, she also has millions of followers on Instagram and Youtube. What makes Pokimane unique is that when most girls on Twitch use heavy makeup and their feminine wiles to attract more followers, she does the opposite, by relying only on her gaming talents and her charming personality. Not only that but she took it a step further when she did the famous Pokimane No Makeup stream to show people that looks don’t matter, what counts is your talent and people seem to agree with her, hence her large following.
It might sound weird to some but looks do matter when you are famous and things like makeup and cosmetic surgery do help, no matter how artificial they look or sound. I guess it is the kind of the world we live in, but that does not mean we should just accept it. A lot of celebrities are trying to change this norm and we should support them and encourage others to do the same. Like, you may like Cam Newton Hair style, although it looks weird.
