Celebrities without makeup

Celebrities without makeup

I hear it all the time... "it's okay for her, she's really attractive", all the while they're thinking I'm not so why bother, why make an effort!


It certainly doesn't help when we're constantly bombarded with images of gorgeous celebrities. The showbiz, fashion and beauty industries pour billions into making celebs look amazing, it's all about selling more movies, shows and product. Celebs themselves have an equally high stake in protecting or enhancing their image, they can't afford to be yesterday's news! 


We wanted to remind you that even celebs have a natural side to them too, away from the limelight.

Apparently it takes Kim Kardashian 90 minutes every morning to get ready. She has a professional makeup artist and her beauty regime costs a staggering NZ$10,708 a month*.

As if these women aren't beautiful enough, it seems everyone is after that perfect shot. Talk about setting false and unrealistic expectations; is it any wonder a lot of women have hang-ups about their image!


This promotional piece, portraying Madonna before and after photoshop, says it all really. Oh and Happy Birthday Photoshop - 25 years!
