Now we’re not trying to be mean, but there really is nothing quite like seeing your favourite celebrity looking terrible without any makeup on. We’ve all been there after all and it makes us love them all the more to think that – heaven forbid – they might actually be real life human beings who can’t be bothered to look like a million dollars 100% of the time.
Here are just a few of our favourites…
1. Mila Kunis
This has got to be one of our favourites. Mainly because Mila was pictured out with her boyfriend Ashton Kutcher just grabbing some coffee and didn’t feel the need to put on a full face of makeup for the paparazzi. We’d hazard a guess that this down-to-earth approach wouldn’t put guys off wanting to be with her. And when you see this picture set aside Mila on the red carpet it is one of the most unbelievable transformations which makes it all the better.

2. Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz has always been very open about her struggles with acne, hence choosing not to wear makeup all the time so as not to exacerbate the problem. And you know what? We salute for this because she is still one of the most stunning women on the planet.

3. Penelope Cruz
Penelope Cruz certainly doesn’t look herself in this picture (left) with the messy hair and tired eyes but this is pretty much what all of us look like when we’ve just rolled out of bed at the weekends.

4. Katie Holmes
We love that Katie Holmes is a big advocate for not wasting your time with makeup when you’re on the school run. But she certainly makes up for it on the red carpet.

5. Kate Moss
We have to admit Kate Moss still looks great without makeup on but it is a far cry from her projected image of impossible airbrushed beauty, which she never normally seems to stray from. It is her job to look amazing after all.

6. Britney Spears
It is quite painful to look back on the days when Britney stopped wearing makeup when she was out in public, mostly because it was around the time she had her world-famous meltdown that left all of her fans devastated. Luckily she seems to be back on the straight and narrow now and hopefully it will stay that way.

7. Jennifer Lopez
One of the most dramatic differences on this list, even Jennifer Lopez’s skin tone looks different in real life. She must have one of the best makeup artists in the business.

8. Mischa Barton
Poor Mischa has always been the subject of tabloid speculation over her appearance and we have a feeling she one day just decided to do her own thing, hence going out makeup-free. We definitely respect that although it can’t be denied that there is a very noticeable difference between the two looks.

9. Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart has made a fine art out of ‘not caring what people think’ and this is no more apparent than when she steps out one minute with no makeup on and then the next is seen looking a vision on the red carpet.

10. Kim Kardashian
Another celebrity whose skin tone is apparently very different when she’s not wearing makeup is the reality TV queen Kim Kardashian. No wonder her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is heralded by his peers as a genius.
