Now this is what I call an "Honest Beauty!" Actress, lifestyle mogul and mother of two Jessica Alba posted a no makeup selfie, showing off her stunning, natural visage on Instagram. She did so hot on the heels of the launch of her Honest Beauty range, which is comprised of over 80 fabulous products. It's not often that we catch a glimpse of Alba without makeup so you may as well revel in her au naturel look.
I'm used to seeing Alba with smoky eyes, glowing skin, and glossed or a bold lip, as those are her signature styles. She even demonstrated how to get a smoky eye with products from her makeup line in an ultimate tutorial.
For the fresh-scrubbed selfie, Alba posed with a pal and it was her bare eyes that struck me the most in this shot. Her brows remain perfectly 'scaped and her smile could light up a major metropolis in the throes of a blackout. But those eyes are insanely expressive. When stripped of mascara, liner, shadow, and other stuff, they stand out even more.
I also love that her caramel-highlighted lob is messy and that she doesn't seem to have a care in the world about it.
With this filter and lighting, it seems like Alba might have a little nude lip color on her pout. Or not. I can't quite tell. Whatever! Her eyes are bare and beautiful.
Alba often plays up her voluptuous lips, like she did with this electric coral shade.
Her warm, olive skin paired nicely with this particular scarlet lip.
This muted, glossy pink lip softened her severe, center-parted hairstyle.
Red lips sink ships!
Her silvery lids also popped against the warmth of her skin tone and pale pink lipstick.
Yeah, so, Alba is pretty flawless with or without her makeup.
Even better, the sometime actress and all-the-time lifestyle guru shared which Honest products she used to get this dramatic, cherry red, Old Hollywood lip, which she rocked at a wedding.
Both the no makeup selfie and the fact that Alba shares lip tips and more are reasons to throw her Instagram feed a follow. You won't be disappointed.
