The message that Ashley Graham has been spreading since she started out in modeling is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. She is famous for promoting different body types in the fashion industry and has recently broken another barrier in the beauty industry when she became the first plus-sized model to be signed by a major cosmetics company.
Although it doesn’t hurt, this pic proves that Graham looks sensational even without a drop of makeup. To get her flawless skin, she has shared three important tips: drinking lots of water, getting plenty of sleep, and staying out of the sun. Pretty simple, right?
The amazingly beautiful Sofia Vergara even looks amazing when she’s sick. She posted a no-makeup selfie on Instagram with the caption, "Hm.I just realised that 102 fever gives u the perfect shades of pink." What people reacted to in this shot is how good and clean the actress’s skin looks.
Vergara talks openly about her skincare routine and says she has simplified it over the years. She makes sure to put sunscreen on in the morning under her makeup. At night, she removes her makeup with a natural sea sponge that she replaces each week and then uses a mild soap to wash her face. She then applies moisturizer and calendula oil, known for its anti-inflammatory properties. She also makes sure to eat the right things for her skin, which she says are vegetables, blueberries, green tea, and chamomile tea with collagen powder, and makes sure she drinks plenty of water.
Her television alter ego Veronica Lodge is known for her perfectly made-up face, but actress Camilla Mendes is not afraid to be seen with a clean face. She even did a makeup-free photoshoot for People. Writing, “Wearing no makeup in front of a camera was a vulnerable experience but also incredibly empowering. Thank you, @people for including me in the beautiful issue.”
Mendes also shared tips on how she keeps her skin looking flawless. Her favorite products include Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, Burt’s Bees Rosewater Toner, and Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm. She also tries to get a facial every two weeks when she’s working to clean her face from all the on-set makeup.
Although Bella Thorne is quite young, she has been acting for long enough and is so successful that she can afford pretty much any designer skincare brand to help her skin look its best. Thorne, however, prefers to use simple products that can be found in nearly any home, to keep her skin looking good.
She has spoken at length in interviews about her struggles with acne while growing up, which led her to come up with her own tricks of the trade, which she has been using ever since. Thorne invented a three-ingredient DIY face mask that includes honey, coconut oil, and cherries, which she claims is the best. She must know her stuff because it is really hard to get off all that glitter makeup that she is so fond of wearing.
Pop icon Christina Aguilera appeared in a makeup-free photo shoot for Paper magazine, in which she looked incredible and was almost unrecognizable. She talked about her experience as “liberating” and told Paper, "I'm a performer; that's who I am by nature. But I'm at the place, even musically, where it's a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty."
Despite all the praise she has been receiving, don’t get used to seeing Aguilera without her face on. She made it clear that she still likes to glam it up. Her favorite beauty tips for clear skin are Cetaphil cleanser, which is widely available, and she feels is good for every skin type, and Mac Makeup Wipes to help her quickly remove her makeup at the end of a long day.
