Ashley Tisdale's No Makeup Selfie Is Awesome For This One Reason — PHOTO

Even an actor-and-singer-turned-blogger-turned-lifestyle-guru needs a day without makeup, especially when she is working so hard on her very own branded makeup collection. That's sort of ironic, right? Ashley Tisdale's no makeup selfie comes hot on the heels of her major reveals about her upcoming Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale makeup range, which she created in conjunction with BH Cosmetics. Tisdale is likely using her own face to test her products, which are an array of gorgeous and shimmery neutrals, as she develops them. So I can't blame her for showing off her bare skin as she lets it breathe during downtime.

The former High School Musical star tossed her reddish blonde hair in a messy bun atop her head, like Miley Cyrus used to do before she hacked off her locks in 2012. Tisdale looked amazing with a fresh face, but she did note that the natural lighting was pretty great. Whatever works!

This no makeup selfie actually serves a really cool purpose related to Tisdale's upcoming, California-inspired makeup line, which she revealed isn't out until May. She is showing off her pretty face. Comparatively speaking, when you look at her selfie and then her products, it's clear that her natural beauty is or will be enhanced by her Illuminate products, which include eye shadows, multi-tasking tints for lips and cheek, and lip gloss. Essentially, her natural look is highlighted by her neutral products.

Tisdale is totally stunning with a bare face and while in sweats, despite her caption to the contrary.

Isn't her makeup collection super pretty? It looks wearable on any and every skin tone and with every hair and eye color. Judging by this picture, the first season is totally universal. Sun-kissed and dusted by pinks and golds? Ah, that's a heavenly makeup look.

I have to hand it to Tisdale, who has totally reinvented herself in the lifestyle sphere. Not every celeb succeeds in this endeavor; remember, Blake Lively shut down her Preserve site because it wasn't shaping up to what she wanted it to be.

However, in this case, with her Haute Mess blog and her Illuminate range, all the pieces are falling into place for Tisdale to make a legit go as a lifestyle influencer.
