Celebrities You Won’t Recognize Without Makeup


Celebrities hopped on board when the hashtags #NoMakeup and #WakeUpLikeThis became popular on social media. The hashtag also inspired some funny parodies; Amy Schumer’s “Girl, You Don’t Need No Makeup” skit was one of several funny parodies of the hashtag. There were many errors since several celebrities didn’t think eyeliner, blush, or lip gloss counted.

However, other celebrities went all-in and uploaded completely natural photos, and the results were surprising, to put it mildly. Here are a few celebs that would be unrecognizable if they didn’t wear makeup.

Country superstar and the eye candy of people worldwide, Carrie Underwood, posted a workout selfie in 2016 where she referred to herself as a Sweaty Mess. Okay, we agree with the Sweaty part of her caption, but she definitely doesn’t look anywhere closer to the Mess part. Much later, in 2019, Carrie shared another post-workout selfie, and we think she looked just as gorgeous as she did back in 2016.

She looks way younger without makeup. And, there’s a unique sense of inner confidence that her photos exude, which is hard not to notice. This confidence makes her look even prettier.
