no make-up


It's fashion week, so we can only expect there to be a few daring looks on the catwalk.

But one look we didn't anticipate was Kendall Jenner going completely make-up free in the Michael Kors show.

The 20-year-old was fresh and clean, as she donned a silver dress and matching shoes.

On the Michael Kors website, it says that Kendall's look is 'windswept' which is why she's rocking the messy bed-head look, too. 

We're all for paired-back make-up trend, so maybe this will really pull it through this year.

And, let's be honest, Kendall totally rocked the fresh-faced look.




When you think about ‘Kim Kardashian’ and ‘Vogue in the same sentence’, the one thing that definitely does NOT spring to mind are the words, ‘no makeup’.

But that is exactly the look she has gone for on her cover shoot for Vogue Spain… and the results? She looks absolutely gorgeous.

Kim has graced the cover of the iconic magazine on a number of occasions, ranging from her wedding shoot to her ‘blonde bombshell’ cover for Vogue Brazil.

But this is a new look that we never would have imagined seeing Kim try out. And thankfully, we absolutely adore it.

The 34-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share her latest cover and inform her fans that “We did this whole shoot without make up! Can’t wait for you to see it!”

The title on the cover reveals that Kim’s interview with the magazine discusses Kanye, her new pregnancy, Caitlyn and more.

Thankfully, Vogue Spain’s Instagram page has also released a shot or two from the shoot, giving us a further glimpse into the world of Kim when she peels it all back, and the outcome is totally beautiful. 


If celebrities like Mila, Miley, and Katy aren't afraid to step out in the spotlight fresh-faced (if we can call it that) than we shouldn't be either. 

Unfortunately this bravery rarely stretches to the first time your partner sees you without make up on, a sadly inevitable event.

But for most of us it is usually (and thankfully) an anticlimactic moment: we build it up and up in our heads and then our partners usually don’t even notice. Phew!

But it is good to know that we are not all alone in feeling like this. A survey was carried out by the skincare team at The Loop in Dublin and Cork airports which confirmed our fears.

They found that one in five women wait three months before daring to reveal their make-up free faces to their partners.

Surprisingly, they also found that we are far more likely to reveal our naked bodies to our significant others than our bare faces. Almost half of the respondents said that they would ditch the clothes after a month while 16 percent said they would do so immediately.

The survey also found out which nation Irish women are the most jealous of when it comes to skincare and complexions. The answer was France, with three out of five dubbing them as their ‘skin idols’.

A huge 70 percent of respondents said that the gently sun-kissed complexion was their favourite skin tone while 22 percent went for the pale and interesting look. Overdoing your tan is definitely out with a low three percent opting for the perma-tan look.

The Loop in Terminal 1 of Dublin Airport has just unveiled its new beauty hall and it holds loads of our favourite brands including Estee Lauder, Lancome and Elizabeth Arden. 


Kesha is a crazy kid – we all know this. But was she crazy to let herself be seen without a scratch of make-up?

Nah – not at all! She looks better than ever!

The star posted her make-up free selfie yesterday, for no other reason, it seems, than to show us all that she doesn’t need to paint her face to look good. Meow, indeed.

Still – we do love Kesha’s extravagant make-up from time to time, for example, her blue lipstick was interesting:

Or the glitter all over one side of her face.

Or stripes all down her face.

Her bejeweled eyebrows looked pretty cool.

And she was quite a fan of painting a star around her eye for a while too.

Hmmm… on second thoughts, maybe she should go with the natural look more often!



Rita Ora posted a no make-up selfie as she was getting ready for a photo shoot and we hardly recognised her!

The pop star looked exhausted as she sported a set of eye patches – presumably there to keep her bags at bay.

She followed up with a full make-up shot to remind us of the Rita we’re used to – proof that even the best of us can benefit from a little make-up from time to time (though we’re fairly certain Rita still looked pretty OK under those eye patches!).

SHEmazing! TV is here to deliver your round-up of all the Showbiz News.

Today’s highlights include:

  • Former X Factor Judge is not impressed with Mel B
  • Hollywood A-lister reveals her beauty secret
  • Kylie Minogue is hitting the big screens for her next project
  • Lady Gaga in her full nipple glory

Niamh Geaney reports.



Photographer Jack Salzke was so sick of models being told they were only beautiful because of Photoshop and make-up, that he decided he needed to do something about it.

Talking about his mission, he said: “Whenever a model comes to shoot with me… she shows up looking beautiful. She hasn’t got make-up on yet, she hasn’t been Photoshopped yet, it’s just her. And that’s what I want to share with the world. I want to share the ‘before'”.

He doesn’t use Photoshop or make-up during the shoot, although he does make use of lighting to create the perfect picture.

He said: “Whenever you see a gallery online of models ‘caught’ without make-up, they’ve been caught in bad lighting, in an awkward position (maybe eating or talking) and they probably have some make-up on anyway.”

However, while he is trying to show off the women in their most natural form, the photographer does in fact remove temporary blemishes like spots – so we feel kind of cheated if we’re being honest.

Explaining why he removed certain blemishes, he said: “I will only be removing blemishes that will have disappeared within a day or two. Anything permanently on the models’ faces will remain such as scars and/or freckles.”

Talking about the project, the Australia based photographer said: “I want to demonstrate the true beauty of these models and prove to the world they DON’T need a ton of make-up or Photoshop to make them look great.”






She is well known for her outrageous outfits, fake tan and heavy make-up, but Katie Price has said that she doesn’t wear make-up, unless she is making a public appearance.

In fact, she admits to being “disinterested” in beautifying herself.

In a recent interview, the former glamour model says: “The older you get, the less interested in make-up you are. A smokey eye is ageing and with four kids, the last thing on my mind is make-up. In fact, I don’t wear any. Vaseline is the only thing in my make-up bag to keep my lips moisturised.”

Sounds like she was having a bit of a crazy moment, we’re baffled!

At least she admits to having some treatments done: “I have my eyelashes and eyebrows tinted every week. I think good brows are really important and I love having a matching manicure and pedicure. I’ve had the same girl doing it for six years.”

However she is honest when it comes to her personal style, saying: ‘Well, let’s just say I’ve never been voted best-dressed and I’m always in the worst dressed category but I don’t care. “

We have to give her some brownie points for that, but seriously no make-up, really Katie? Who are you kidding?!



Zooey Deschanel may only be 34 years-old but her no make-up selfie makes her look like a teenager!

The New Girl actress uploaded the cute snap to her Instagram with the caption: “Good Morning. #nomakeup #nofilter.”

While it isn’t clear if the quirky actress was poking some fun at other celebs who love to take perfect photos of themselves with no make-up on, Zooey is still clearly stunning in the photo.

Surely this is proof she doesn’t need make-up at all!

While the #nomakeupselfie trend has been a great success, raising up to €2,000,000 for Irish Cancer Society. One woman decided to post her own no make-up selfie for a different reason.

Jeanne Marie Ryan from Oxford in England decided to post her own bare faced selfie to highlight what a woman’s face looked like after it had been punched seven times.

The English student was attacked over the weekend, when she told a man that it was unacceptable to sexually assault women after she was groped on the dancefloor.

“I think he had not been expecting someone to say anything to him. I fell over after the first three or four [punches] but got back up and I think it enraged him further that I hadn’t been knocked out.I don’t regret saying what I said. I don’t regret standing up for myself or anyone who’s ever been groped like that.”

Jeanne has raised up to €15,000 for the Oxford Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre so far.



Cheryl decided to show her Instagram followers what she really looks like in the morning, even though we’re not so sure she is entirely make-up free.

The singer shared the “no make-up” selfie after a fun night with her friends while on a trip to South Africa.

The 30-year-old also quoted Beyoncé in her  Instagram caption: “I woke up like dis….***Flawless.”

Whether Cheryl has been inspired by the “no make-up” selfie trend over taking Facebook, she is definitely wearing a hint of eye make-up in the snap.

We only wish we looked this good first thing in the morning.




Nigella Lawson is the cover star of next month’s British Vogue and decided to wear hardly any make-up.

In what could be interpreted as an attempt to stop hiding behind her perfect ‘domestic goddess’ persona, the TV chef is photographed with just a little blush and a dab of mascara.

Vogue insiders have said the cover photo has only undergone a little photoshopping: “Miss Lawson received a little retouching as we do with all cover images. Oddly given that she is a woman in her fifties, less than some people decades younger.”


Given the troubles Nigella has experienced in the last year after rumours of domestic abuse and a court case that revealed she’d taken drugs, we have a lot of admiration for her honest photo shoot.

We find it difficult to leave the house without make-up, don’t mind appear without it on Vogue!
