21 celebrity #nomakeup selfies that make us wanna celebrate bare skin.

The freckles. The spots. The real lashes. The untouched brows. If there's one thing we love more than the glitz and glam of red carpets, it's when our celebrity friends show us their ~nakey~ faces on Instagram. 

There's something so personal and pervy about it and we're HERE for it.

And while we all know these A-listers have access to some of the best aestheticians, dermatologists and treatments around, we still think there's something a little bloody empowering about women stripping off their makeup, ditching the heat tools and hair products, and just letting their natural beauty shine through.

Listen to Mamamia's podcast for your face, You Beauty, where we talk about how to nab glowy skin. Post continues below.

To celebrate, we're taking a peak at some of the most famous faces, just getting around and doing their thing without a slick of concealer on. 

So, grab your makeup wipes and come with us as we recap some of the latest celebrity #nomakeup selfies.


Salma Hayak

Salma Hayek describing her grey hairs as "wisdom" is the kinda energy we need right now.

Serious question: IS J.LO EVER NOT GLOWING?

Just Helen Mirren being an absolute f**king boss, right from the moment she wakes up.

How cute are Gabrielle Union's natural freckles?!

Honestly, Jennifer Garner is still Jenna Rink from Suddenly 30.

Drew Barrymore

We love this caption almost as much as we love Zoë Kravitz's skin. Almost.

I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. ⠀ ⠀ I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this 🥰 BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼 ⠀ ⠀ If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️

Lady Gaga


We're so used to seeing Lady Gaga sport full glam, but we love that she's feeling herself without it too.

Here's Taraji P Hearson absolutely killing it in this au naturel moment, showing off her bare skin and red braids.

Tbh, it would just be a shame to put makeup on Gal Gadot's face.

Leighton Meester basically spits in Blair Waldorf's face with this fresh skin and natural hair combo. Love it.
