While celebrities may have to be in full glam during their red carpet appearances and photo shoots, many choose not to wear makeup during their own downtime. From singers to actresses and everything in-between, there are tons of female celebs out there who choose to be makeup-free. Personally, I think this is amazing. As women, we need to know that we don't have to be defined by makeup. Even though I'm a beauty blogger, I'm a deep believer in the idea that beauty is more than just a good contour. Going makeup-free shows that you are just as confident with who you are as a woman as you are with makeup. When celebrities post #nomakeupselfies, it just shows that they too are more than just an image.
When it comes to owning your own self-confidence, start by ditching the makeup. While makeup is amazing for highlighting your favorite features, it can also be used a clutch. If you're looking to delve into self-love, then maybe put down the blending brush. If these powerful female celebs can do (with the whole world watching) then you can too. Don't worry about the haters. Your makeup-free self is just as fabulous. When in doubt, just ask yourself WWBD (what would Beyonce do). Here are 27 famous ladies who choose to ditch their makeup.
