The naked truth: 20 Stars without makeup [SLIDESHOW]

Julia McClatchy (admin)

In the latest issue of Life & Style, Kim Kardashian “ditches the comfort of her regimen and flaunts her natural beauty for the first time.”  Sure she does.

Not ones to be fooled by the magazine’s clever ruse, we decided to do some serious investigative journalism and get to the bottom of this.  What do stars look like without makeup?  Is their beauty that flawless and unattainable?

As it turns out, stars don’t look so great when they’re photographed sans makeup. Shockingly, they don’t wake up every morning with a weightless layer of foundation, flawlessly applied eye liner, and shimmery blush on their faces (cough, Kim Kardashian, cough).

Of course, one could argue that they’re only human and we shouldn’t expect them to look like their red-carpet selves all the time but…well…we do.

Here are the fruits of our investigation, which shows stars in the worst light possible. Indulge in your wicked side and enjoy.

    Jessica Biel and Kelly Clarkson still look fantastic
    I’ve never worshipped celebrities. They make the most awkward flops that I sure as hell have never strived for! I’ve idolized women I know, but seriously, people think celebrities are super human are just…god, the stupidity…

    Several thoughts ran through this old mind as I flipped through the assorted photographs. The first, of course, was “what were they thinking?” to be seen in public like that… Not because going “natural” is so horrific, but if you make your living by your looks, well – one would think they’d be a bit more careful about that image.
    Second, I felt kinda sorry for the women. To know, deep in your heart, that your beauty is literally not their own, but rather the miracle of an exceptional make-up (FX) artist….
    And happily, third – I feel a LOT better when I look in the mirror now. At 52, I swear I could hold my own with almost every last one of them …
    Thanks DC for giving an old woman a bright smile this morning.

    That last one on Maria Shriver may be the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.
