15 Fairly Shocking Pictures Of Celebrities Without Makeup!
It’s not easy being a celebrity. Everybody wants to know your business. You want privacy? Forget it. Wherever you go – even if it’s just for a run or to the local grocery store – you can rest assured that there’s a photographer hiding in the bushes ready to take an intrusive snap for the gossip magazines and websites. And nobody in the celebrity world comes under the spotlight more than famous celebrity women do. As well as the pressure to always look good, there’s the pressure to try and live as normal as life as possible under the harsh spotlight of the media. Sometimes that’s not always possible. Sometimes a girl forgets there’s that photographer waiting in the bushes. These are fifteen examples of the occasions when some of our most famous celebrities were caught on camera without their makeup …
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Friends With Benefits and Ted star is known for her exotic, Eastern European looks. The dazzling brunette usually wows her fans with dark eye shadow shades and ruby red lipstick – a perfect complement for her quirky style. We don’t know what look she was going for here when she stepped out minus the makeup, but we have to admit it’s pretty shocking. Still, we all have off days. Nobody expects you to look fabulous when you’re just heading out to the store for a carton of milk!
Lawrence has come a long way since her breakout role in X-Men: First Class. She won an Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, and a Golden Globe for her turn in American Hustle. And then there’s the global phenomenon that is the Hunger Games franchise – a worldwide smash that has made Lawrence into one of the most well-known faces in the world. However, in this no-makeup shot, her fans would struggle to recognize her! It must be quite handy if she needs to go incognito – just leave the makeup off and she could be somebody else!
She’s a global musical superstar with a whole army of hair and make-up minions to make her look like a goddess on her album covers, music videos and tour appearances. Beyonce is never anything but flawless. Or is she? It appears even Beyonce occasionally lets the mask slip, as we see from the above photo. Here we get a rare chance to see the one of the world’s biggest musical stars without her usual makeup on … and hey! She STILL looks pretty good. Some people are just born with it, we guess!
The daughter of the Dark Prince of Heavy Metal usually sports a rock chick look that’s recognizable the world over. We would expect nothing less from the child of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. But here’s a truly shocking picture of the Fashion Police star minus her makeup. Perhaps she should take some of the advice regularly dished out on that show? We wonder what the late, great Joan Rivers would make of Kelly’s no-makeup look? Never mind the Fashion Police … somebody call the Makeup Police!
WOW! We had to double-check that this was actually Khloe Kardashian and not just some random woman. But it is! The younger Kardashian sister is unrecognizable from her usual glamorous self in this shocking photograph taken of her out on the streets. If this is how Khloe looks in real life, just how much work is required to make her look as good as she does on Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Are they shoveling on the makeup with a trowel?
The girl who scored a worldwide hit with the pop anthem Roar certainly looks a lot different from her usual glitzy, kooky self in this shot of her chilling at a festival. She sure looks a lot more homely when she’s not dressed like a Vegas showgirl! Still, she deserves a bit of down time. Anybody who ends up marrying Russell Brand can’t be expected to look at their best every hour of the day. We’ve heard that guy is exhausting!
Who’s this? Believe it or not, it’s Maria Shriver looking a lot different from her usual polished self. The former wife of Hollywood action legend and California Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger has certainly looked better, as you would expect from a member of the Kennedy dynasty. Maybe she’s been worn down by years of trying to understand what Arnie’s saying, or maybe she’s just having an off-day? One thing’s for sure – this lady’s glamorous looks WILL BE BACK!
Is that really the American county pop sensation and occasional actress, Faith Hill? The This Kiss star looks far from her usual glamorous self in this truly shocking no-makeup photograph. The blonde bombshell looks completely different to how she usually looks in her videos and on the covers of her multi-platinum award winning albums. Obvisouly she wasn’t up to collect another music award on the day this shot was taken! It’s amazing what a bit of lighting and makeup can do, eh?
Unlike her sister Khloe, Kim Kardashian at least looks like herself on the very, very rare occasions she’s seen out and about minus her makeup. Indeed, we would argue that the queen of reality TV doesn’t need to slap it on so much, if this no-makeup shot is anything to go by. She looks positively homely! Now the proud mother of two children, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see a bit more of the makeup-free Kim. Sometimes a busy mom doesn’t have the time or the inclination to go full-on glam … and quite right too!
Is this really the glamorous Baywatch babe whose image once adorned the bedroom walls of teenage boys around the world? Yes, we’re afraid it is. Pammy’s glamorous days as one of the world’s most beautiful women appear to be over if this truly shocking no-makeup shot is anything to go by. She’s almost unrecognizable! If they ever do a Baywatch reboot, there’s a distinct possibility that a touch of recasting may be on the cards!
She’s famous for playing the glamorous temptress in hit US shows such as Knots Landing and Desperate Housewives, which makes it all the more surprising when you see a shot of a woman who can reduce any married middle aged man to a quivering mess looking, well, dowdy! Is this really the same woman? And even more worrying, is it just us, or does a makeup-free Nicolette Sheridan look uncannily like a makeup-free Pamela Anderson? Now that’s truly shocking!
We’re used to seeing the American Idol star looking effortlessly glamorous these days, as she graces the music awards red carpets of the world. But there was a time when the singer of the smash hit single A Moment Like This was anything but glamorous! As you can see from this early publicity shot of a much younger Kelly, she was once the archetypal girl next door. Amazing what a bit of American Idol fame and an army of stylists can do for a girl, eh?
What on earth has happened to Sharon Stone? The Basic Instinct star who was once voted Sexiest Woman Alive doesn’t look at her best in this truly shocking photo taken of Stone when she was dining at an outdoor restaurant. We know she’s not as young as she once was, but this is a pretty incredible transformation! Perhaps Sharon had a cold that day, or maybe this is a result of a late night on the tiles? Hey, we’ve all been there. Ouch!
The Pulp Fiction star who once played the Goddess of Love Venus in The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen looks completely different in this shocking no-makeup shot. She might not look the same as the glamorous Hollywood superstar we’ve seen so many times walking down the red carpet at the Golden Globes and the Oscars, but we still think she looks pretty good makeup-free. Hey, as if we’d say anything else. We’ve seen what this lady is capable of in Kill Bill!
And finally to arguably the most famous woman in the world. That’s right! It’s Barbie! It’s amazing to think the best selling doll in the world has been with us since 1959, but it’s true. With her glamorous looks, she’s been a hit with little girls for generation after generation, never looking anything but perfect. But what lies behind the makeup? Something that is indeed, truly shocking! We better do something about this before Ken turns up! Quick, someone call the beauty salon!
