9 Stunning Celebrity Makeunders That Prove That Less Is More

These stars are slaying the natural look.

We’re used to seeing celebrities with flawless makeup and outrageous outfits that make us normies look basic AF, so it’s always refreshing to see an A-lister rocking a pared-back, natural face in contrast to their usual glam look.

Singer Gwen Stefani was the latest star to show off a more natural look on Instagram and frankly 48 has never looked better.

Forgoing her signature red lip and winged eyes, the former Voice coach looked stunning as she holidayed in Oklahoma for boyfriend Blake Shelton’s 45th birthday.

Check out some other A-listers who’ve put down the makeup brush in favour of a more relaxed look.

Camilla Mendes

You know her as the impeccably-dressed Veronica Lodge in the cult hit show Riverdale, but we’re loving bare-faced Camila Mendes for People Magazine’s “The Beautiful Issue”. Someone needs to give us her skin routine ASAP!

Christina Aguilera

A far cry from her "Dirrty" days, singer Christina Aguilera looked fresh-faced and fabulous on the cover of Paper Magazine after ditching her famous dark-lip.

Kylie Jenner

She’s known for promoting her Kylie Cosmetics line by showing off bold makeup looks on the reg, so it was a nice change to see Kylie Jenner posting sans-makeup on her Instagram (along with adorable bub Stormi). How cute are her natural freckles?

Ever since she burst into the spotlight in Baywatch way back in 1989, Pamela Anderson has rocked her trademark platinum blonde locks and super smoky eye combo, so we were pleasantly surprised to see the actress show off her natural beauty at last year's Best Award Gala 40th Edition in Paris.

Gisele Bundchen

Let's be real -- Gisele could probably wear a potato sack and still look hot, so it's no surprise that she was still drop-dead gorgeous without makeup when she graced the cover of Vogue Italia in February this year.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is a big fan of makeup -- she is the queen of contouring and baking, after all -- so we loved seeing a whole new Kimmy on the cover of Vogue Spain in 2015.


Magazines seem to love stripping back celebs for their covers, don't they? Without her usual cat eyeliner, singer Adele is almost unrecognisable (also can someone give us the name of her dermatologist?).

Lady Gaga

When she first burst on to the scene, Lady Gaga was as famous for her outlandish get-ups as she was for her catchy tunes (remember the meat dress?). These days, however, the singer goes with a conservative look, but still maintains her signature personal style.
