Celebrities are often seen with a full face of makeup that is professionally done. So we tend to forget that they probably look very different without it. Now that celebrities are on social media, they often give us a small peek into their personal lives. That includes when they’re just lounging around with no makeup on. Through these photos, we sometimes learn that celebrities have freckles, blemishes, or dark circles under their eyes.
Some celebrities, like Alicia Keys, go without makeup often and have been outspoken about it. For the singer, that includes going to award shows and starring on the television show, The Voice barefaced. She wrote about her previous anxiety about makeup for Lenny Letter.
Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn’t put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it??? These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me.
