Whether they do it for charity or to let fans in on another intimate part of their lives, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Beyoncé aren't afraid to share stripped-down, no-makeup selfies on social media. Beloved British singer and personality Cheryl Fernandez-Versini recently shared a candid snap that put her natural beauty in the spotlight. One thing they all have in common? Enviably flawless complexions!
We take a look at the best celebrity no make-up selfies…
Cheryl recently delighted fans when she shared a close-up selfie, wearing no make-up and looking cosy in a fluffy dressing gown with her hair in a towel. The Crazy Stupid Love singer revealed that her stunning looks have been passed down to her from previous generations, after her father noted the striking ressemblance between the star and her grandmother. “My dad is making me post this picture,” she admitted in the caption alongside the photo. “Bc he said I am the double of my nana (his mother) when she was my age, and has a photo just like this but with a scarf on her head… So here you go.”
The craze of going make-up free in a photo first swept the nation last year, when a campaign encouraging women to post selfies of their bare faces to raise awareness for Cancer Research went viral. While the highly successful campaign may be over, the trend is not. Stars from Taylor Swift to Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima often share photos of themselves first thing in the morning before they have reached for any beauty products.
Earlier this year Drew Barrymore celebrated her 40th birthday in style, sharing a make-up free photo in honour of her special day. Drew, who was soaking up the sun on a beach with family and friends, was smiling from ear to ear in the image, after enjoying a dip in the ocean. She captioned the picture simply, “#forty.”
