make-up free

Maura Higgins has penned a moving note in honour of Mental Health Awareness Week. The Love Island star opened up about her own personal struggles in a bid to raise awareness and to encourage her followers to seek help if they too are suffering.

Alongside a series of unfiltered photos, the reality star shared: "So many of us hide behind filters & I am not going to come on here and lie…I am one of them BUT don’t do it to impress others…do it for yourself, just like everything else in life. DO YOU!!!

"Stop comparing yourself to others. We are all human, we all have our bad days, bad photos, bad angles etc. I want to let every person reading this know that NOBODY IS PERFECT. Being in the public eye we have the privilege of having stylists, makeup artists, PT’s etc. But behind all that glam and social media we are just normal people!

She continued, "If you want to be happy, don’t take stuff personal, let things go & let other people be! I have been trolled my whole life like many people & the best thing to do is IGNORE IT! Those people being nasty or behind their keyboards are far from perfect too!

The model encouraged her followers to take care of their mental wellbeing, especially during the current pandemic. She added, "Focus on you, your mental health & your well being physically and mentally. And if there’s times you are struggling, don’t suffer in silence, please talk to someone."

There's no doubt that many people will seek comfort from Maura's honest and moving words.



Since Adele became famous, she's been known for her winged eyeliner and perfectly contoured face.  

However, the singer opted for the natural look last night when she shared a series of make-up free pictures on Instagram.

The 28-year-old revealed on the social media site that she had to cancel her show in Phoenix, Arizona due to being sick.

But, even when Adele is sick and make-up free, she looks just as bright and beautiful as ever.

Just look at that skin!

We hope she feels better soon!


Celebrity make-up free selfies are taking centre stage at the moment as more and more Hollywood stars are going bare-faced for Instagram

Whether they are completely cosmetic-free, we don't know, but we have to say, most of them do look damn good. 

We look at the best of the best from some of the hottest stars; but let us just consider – are they real or fake? 

Beyoncé – Real

We figure Queen Bey is definitely make-up free in this one. 


Kylie Jenner – Fake

Well, apart from the fake eyelashes, plumped lips and HD brows – we think the rest of her face might be make-up free.


Miley Cyrus – Real

Miley is a wild one and clearly doesn't care if people see her with or without make-up – because from last weeks antics she clearly doesn't care if people see her with or without clothes. 


Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Kate Hudson – Real

These bare-faced beauties look so good, they might as well go without make-up to all their red carpet events. 


Cara Delevingne – Real

We all know Cara is probably the most low-maintenance model around so this selfie is certainly cosmetic-free. The rat is kind of creepy though. 


Georgia May-Jagger – Real

Not a scratch of face paint here! But there is a really cut puppy to make up for it!


Tyra Banks – Real

Tyra shows how it's done with the ultimate #WokeUpLikeThis selfie. It's good to see she has a sense of humour about it. 


Sofia Vergara – Undecided

She is very gorgeous but we can't help but think there's a little coverage here – or perhaps it's just a great IG filter


Gigi Hadid – Real

She's young and beautiful; why would she even need make-up?


Kim Kardashian – Fake

Same deal as Kylie. With her luscious lashes and plucked-to-the-core brows, we say she might she's in the middle of the #WokeUpLikeThis scale. 


Drew Barrymore – Real

We don't think we've seen Drew this fresh faced in a while; and she looks a lot younger without make-up too!


Lady Gaga – Real

She is a COMPLETELY different person. We think she even looks better without all the flashy war paint that she constantly wears!  



Made in Chelsea star, Binky Feltstead is ditching the make-up for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Binky, whose real name is Alexandra, announced her plan to join the #DaretoBare campaign – which urges women to put down the make-up for a day, a week or even a month in order to raise money and awareness for breast cancer – in her beauty blog on The Daily Mail.

She did admit that it wouldn’t be easy to go bare faced for a whole month saying: “As a self-confessed beauty junkie, I admit giving up make-up is quite a daunting prospect.”

The reality TV star also shared a picture of her make-up free face and assured her reader she was NOT wearing make-up: “Before anyone says anything, I’m not wearing mascara! I have semi-permanent last extensions that I can’t remove, but I can assure you I’m completely bare-faced.”

Binky looks great we think this month will be a breeze for her – and who knows, maybe she’ll give it up for good!




Imagine putting down your beauty brushes, putting away your foundation and saying goodbye to your blusher for 200 days. Well that’s exactly what American student Annie Gauru did – the aspiring journalist set herself a challenge to not wear make-up for seven months. Wanting to look at her own perception of beauty and of those around her, the Born With It Beauty Project was born.

After one final make-up faced night out on New Year’s Eve, Annie put away the slap and spent the next 200 days attending parties without make-out on.

Obviously it wasn’t as easy as it all sounds: “I was often tempted to quit. As a 20-year-old college student at Indiana University, I spent many weekends at fraternity parties surrounded by intimidatingly beautiful young women. My friends were right that no one would really know if I cheated. Even if they did, they probably wouldn’t care.”

Annie completed the project this month and says: “I am not against makeup, but I am against the feeling that I have to change my face to feel good about myself. If you think you couldn’t possibly try my experiment, then it would probably be a good experience for you too, even if just for a week,”

We all did the #nomakeupselfie but going outside for 200 days without our face on, well, let’s just say – Annie is one brave girl.



Rachel McAdam’s has posed make-up free for the cover of Allure’s August issue.

The star looks amazing without any help from mascara, eyeliner, lipstick – or any of the things we instinctively reach to each morning before leaving the house.

It was a strange coincidence that the beautiful cover came out the same day it was announced that Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling, Rachel’s ex, were expecting a baby together.  And we really can’t believe that it’s been ten years since The Notebook and Rachel still looks the EXACT same.

We need to know her secret!




It looks like Demi Lovato has decided to ditch her usual make-up regime for a while, after spending a rejuvenating few days at a spiritual retreat last week.

The star showed off her freckles in a make-up free photo yesterday, and she really did look the picture of health.


Demi has been very public about her past body image issues, but she proved that her new healthy lifestyle has helped her overcome her demons as she followed up her make-up free selfie with a sweaty snap of her working out in the gym and an enviable shot of her fab bikini body, saying:

“Had a spiritual retreat last week full of organic food, working out, meditation and reiki healing… I feel so ready for this summer!!!”

Sounds idyllic!



Jessie J has done it again. She posted a picture to Instagram on Tuesday make-up free, hair askew and wearing no clothes, or so we’re lead to believe.

Niamh Geaney reports.



Cher Lloyd is the latest celebrity to join the “no make-up” selfie craze.

The singer, who recently married her fiancé, Craig Monk, uploaded this photo to her Instagram account writing: “Morning!”

Cher is currently in the U.S.  and released the video for song ‘Sirens,’ earlier today.
