Sans Makeup

So clearly after yesterday’s post you all know how much we enjoyed our time meeting with Jessica Alba and how impressed we were with her and her brand as well as her knowledge.  Her ear piercings too.  Oh, and the fact that she was literally wearing no makeup and looking beyond gorgeous.  Her skin was flawless and her lips were literally like pretty little pillows.  Yep, its true.  It was so refreshing to see someone who is constantly in the spotlight and photographed sans makeup.  As someone who wears very little makeup and sometimes goes back and forth as to whether or not I should actually wear “more”, I have to say that I appreciated meeting Jessica (first name basis) like this.  It gave me the confidence to go fresh faced a little more often.  Especially on the weekends when I have absolutely nothing to do.

As if they were speaking to me, last night E! News did a little bit on the newest W Magazine’s photographs of various celebrities without makeup.  33 Celebrities at that.  All of which who have been nominated as having the best performances.  If you have a chance, be sure to check out the photos online, they are absolutely gorgeous.  The complete rawness of the pictures is so different from what we normally see in a periodical and I can’t help but love and appreciate that.

Here’s to letting our natural beauty shine through every so often:)

    Um OF COURSE Jessica Chastain look even more gorgeous without make-up, if that's even possible. Love all of these ladies!

    I love how they are all still really recognizable. Sometimes it feels like you HAVE to put makeup on, but these are proof that there's really no need some days. xo
