The Glamorous World of Celebrities and Stars

Celebrities and stars have always given us makeup goals with their pretty faces and dolled up avatars. Most of our celebrities and actresses look so beautiful on screen and in interviews that we believe that they have been gifted with such good looks. Their makeup styles become hot trends and we renew our wardrobes and makeup products according to what our favorite celebrity wears. Such is the impact of these celebrities on our mind and lifestyle. Die-hard fans are obsessed with their favorite celebrities so much so that they try to copy them in every segment of their lives. 

Seeing these actresses and actors on screen and in events dolled up so beautifully, we have a certain set image of their looks in our mind. Even before seeing their faces, we have a particular expectation as to how they would look like because we are so used to seeing them always looking their best. We always see them with flawless faces, perfectly pouted lips and eyes done up very beautifully. That is also part of the reason why these celebrities manage to advertise various cosmetic brands so successfully. But to call them con artists would be very inappropriate as they are just doing their job. Their profession demands them to look beautiful on screen and they just do their job exceptionally well. 

Although we love watching them all dolled up, we should have at least an inkling of what celebrities and stars really look without makeup. They look normal just like all of us. Behind their wow good looks is a large team of professional makeup artists who work night and day on their skin, nutrition, and makeup. And if that is not all, the camera does the rest. A lot of bright lightening is focussed on their faces which make them look so radiant. If you actually see your favorite celebrities and stars in reality without makeup, you will be in a big shock.

So here are some of your favorite celebrities and stars in their original faces, completely makeup free and 100% natural. What we see on screen is fake but what you will see below is the actual truth! Recently, in a #no makeup campaign, many celebrities came forward to show their real face to the world. They started appearing with fresher faces at award shows and red carpet events showing the world that they are not that perfect. This campaign was trending on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. While we did find some celebrities to be totally unrecognizable, there were some who were almost perfect in their looks and looked very pretty even without a trace of makeup.

Many of these stars were applauded for their bold move while an equal number of fans slammed and trolled them on social media after seeing their no make up looks. There are some celebrities who look really unrecognizable without makeup and their fans could not help but pass some rude comments. 

Check it out for yourself from below:

"Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical."

This is a quote from the famous yesteryear heroine Sophia Lauren regarding beauty. She definitely was aware that makeup was something you add on to your face but it does not reflect your inner beauty.

"I swear to God, happiness is the best make-up."

The above quote is from Drew Barrymore on makeup and good looks. The quote reflects the wise thoughts of a person who is as beautiful from inside as she is from outside.

Hollywood celebrities without makeup

There are plenty of Hollywood celebrities and stars who have recently posted their pics on social media without make up. The reason behind revealing their real faces to the world was to let people know their true self and also to raise awareness about the harmful effects of constantly applying these make up related chemicals to their faces. The youth easily get deterred by their flawless looks on screen and try to do the same for themselves. Makeup is nothing but a layer of chemicals. However high the brand or however skin friendly these makeup products claim to be, they are after all chemicals. One needs to use these chemicals with moderation. It is very essential to let your skin breathe free of chemicals. It is a must to remove all the chemicals from your face before sleeping. The skin rejuvenates the most when the person sleeps. It is therefore essential to keep it makeup and chemicals free at night. While you get a restful sleep, the skin is working on its wear and tear and needs to breathe without a layer of chemical on it. Makeup chemicals block the pores and if applied for long durations can cause serious side effects on one's skin. To counter the harmful effects of these chemicals, these celebrities eat a very nutritious diet and have a team of nutritionists and makeup experts working on their skin. If possible, one must only opt for makeup products with the least amount of chemicals or choose the ones with skin-friendly chemicals. 

Makeup can only make you look pretty on the outside, but it doesn't help if you're ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the makeup.

Audrey Hepburn once said these powerful lines. A star who has so much experience with makeup coming up with such inspirational lines only depicted that she had plenty of wisdom and knew the importance of a beautiful soul from within.

She’s not wearing makeup so her face just looks like skin.

Women these days overdo their makeup so much so that a particular segment of men have started disliking them completely. Chuck Palahniuk said this above quote showing his obvious disapproval for those women who hide their true skin behind layers of makeup.

1. Adele without makeup

3. Alicia Keys without makeup look

She was the heroine who started the movement and made a statement when she went makeup free in the year 2016. Her movement VMAs sans makeup created quite a buzz in the industry with many other heroines following suit. 

She was the one to start this anti-makeup campaign. A  quote from her interview said "Cause I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing,"

She was clearly fed up of that fear of getting snapped sans makeup all the time. 

A quick brief on Alicia Keys. She is an American singer-songwriter and a classically trained pianist. Her debut album was 'Songs in a minor' released in 2001. After gaining commercial success with a lot of her albums, she released her first live album in 2005, 'Unplugged'. She has received numerous awards in her singing career including 15 Grammy Awards. 

"Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn't put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it???," she wrote. "These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me."

The above quote is from an email newsletter titled 'Alicia Keys - Time to uncover' in which she spoke about her desire to be strong and confident beyond her face paint. The quote also puts light on the struggles of celebrities and stars when coming before their fans. They have to constantly put up with a lot of expectations. Fans and audiences forget that they are human too.

The whole idea behind posting such no makeup photos on social media was to make the fans aware of their real self so that they are not shamed if by chance the celebrities are snapped without makeup. These celebrities would like to convey to the audiences and to the general public that they too are not perfect. Do not have any unreal expectations from them and do not always expect to see them with their face paint. They have been already too stressed with this fact and are scared to walk out of their houses without makeup thinking that the paparazzi might snap them. 

We need to understand that they are doing their job exceptionally well. We like it when our stars and celebrities look so pretty on screen and they just abide by our expectations. 

My main beauty tip is don't say that negative thing when you look in the mirror. It just isn't healthy…That lack of beating up on ourselves — that's my new mantra. Happiness is the best makeup; a smile is better than any lipstick you'll put on.

Drew Barrymore said these powerful words about makeup.

I’ve worked hard to feel beautiful in my natural skin. Personally, I don’t ever want to depend on makeup to feel beautiful.

Lupita Nyong'o said the above quote and indirectly emphasized the importance of having good and healthy skin.

If stars and celebrities do not have naturally gifted good skin, they have to rely on makeup to appear flawless on screen. They also consult the best nutritionists and skin experts to get a healthy and flawless skin. We too should follow their examples and concentrate on a healthy skin instead of costly makeup products. Healthy eating, stress-free living, and moderate exercises regularly help one get a good skin. Consult a skin specialist if you are facing acne or pigmentation problems. Remember, it can sometimes be easy to achieve good skin. All you need is the right treatment.

Bollywood heroines without makeup

Makeup can do wonders on one's skin. It can make dark circles disappear and can help a freckled person to have a flawless complexion if they desire it. Just like Hollywood, Bollywood heroines are also known to apply loads of makeup on their faces to look good on screen.

Many actresses have even gone under severe depression dealing with their skin and makeup blues. Many of them do not like getting their faces painted all the time and yet cannot afford to leave their houses without looking their painted best because they are scared that the media would snap their pictures and reveal to the world their flaws and imperfections. To be a star is not easy and make up plays a key role in their life. 

There are other celebrities who have been quoted saying that they love makeup because it gives them a lot of confidence to move about, they like the way make up changes their looks and they love to see the pretty versions of themselves with makeup. While this is very true, there is the other side of it too. If celebrities reveal their fresh faces to their fans, their fans would at least know what their favorite stars look like in reality and would not be surprised to see a no make up look on any of them. 

Check out the images of famous Bollywood beauties without makeup.
 

Flawlessness is a dangerous, high-budget myth, and it’s time we shattered it. So, for every teen girl leaning into her bedroom mirror, wondering why she doesn’t look like a celebrity: Please know that nobody wakes up like this. Not me. Not any other actress. (Not even Beyoncé. I swear.)

In the above quote, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor revealed in a very candid interview that it is the makeup that makes them look so good on screen. In reality, they are all like us.

1. Bollywood heroine Aishwarya Rai

The Queen of Bollywood and the string of a million hearts, Miss Universe Aishwarya Rai is undoubtedly beautiful even without makeup. Few people are gifted with such looks and Aishwarya Rai was one of the gifted few. She is considered as one of the most beautiful women and her biggest asset are her colored eyes. She applies makeup beautifully to enhance the look of her pretty eyes but the actress is a diva even without makeup. 

2. Bollywood heroine Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor Khan is truly beautiful with or without makeup. Post marriage and after having her son, she has retained her beauty. The heroine follows a healthy diet and indulges in power yoga and exercises which give her skin a gorgeous glow and noticeable radiance.

Humorous no make-up quotes

Below is a collection of some humorous no makeup quotes which may sound funny at first but have a deeper and inspirational meaning behind them. 

If all girls started wearing no makeup and comfortable clothes, guys would have no choice but to fall for girl because of natural beauty.

A very wise saying depicting that usually people fall in for something that looks beautiful on the outside. If all men had the common sense of falling in love with the inner beauty of a woman, relationships would have been more meaningful and girls wouldn't have to ever resort to layers of makeup to camouflage their flaws.

We are also not trying to portray makeup as something that should be forbidden completely. Makeup can be beautiful, it gives women a lot of confidence and also lets them camouflage their flaws and look their best on special occasions. Makeup can also be an amazing art form that allows you to experience with different looks and colors. The point is that one should also reveal their true face to the people and never ever be ashamed of the way you look with no makeup. Use it sparingly if you want to achieve a natural look and do not become too influenced by celebrities and stars because their job demands them to apply makeup almost all the time. Try to get healthy skin which is always more important and effective than getting costly makeup products. And most importantly, be happy. Happiness is the best makeup a girl can wear because it resonates from within and gives you glow that even makeup cannot achieve. Even more importantly, happiness will make you feel content with yourself and how you look and you will not worry about what people think about you with or without makeup.
