Jessica Simpson's Makeup and Photoshop-Free Cover Shoot

Since her infamous ‘mom jeans’ debacle which caused a major buzz months back, Jessica Simpson has been out to challenge the concept of beauty–and she’s taking her boldest step yet by going totally makeup-free on the cover of Marie Claire. “I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business,” The Price of Beauty star says of what prompted her to show the real her, even air-drying her hair for the shoots. Inspired by her own A Beautiful Me initiative, which encourages women to be comfortable in their skins, Jessica is the first to admit that while she feels confident showing off a totally natural look, it doesn’t mean she’s through with changing up her look. “If I’m in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back. But I also like bed head,” she says. Tell us: What do you think of Jessica as a fresh-faced cover-girl? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

That so not true SHE HAS ON MAKEUP…anyone who saw her on the reality show knows that she has no color in her eyebrows…why does she insist on lying ..please go deal with your insecurities in other way other than lying..

I LOVE IT! She looks stunning “untouched”

I think she has makeup on in both pics. And, that’s no bed-head either. Just my two cents.

Nice set of jugs

Natural is nice. Jessica looks great!

Umm, are you blind? She IS wearing makeup! Strategically placed and tastefully simple, but makeup none the less. Mascara, cheek color, some sort of lip stain, and likely some sort of foundation or concealer. Stop trying to trick us!

Total BS! She’s defininitely got some eye makeup on.

Beautiful, but I agree with DB…has makeup on. Fake eyelashes I guess don’t count as makeup. Still there is makeup on, she just has a natural look done with her makeup.
It is too bad she didn’t do the real thing and go sans makeup because she would still be beautiful.

I find it very interesting that there is a clear difference between what the men think of these shots and women. The women find it beautiful to be natural and the men are saying that it makes a gorgeous woman average. I understand the attraction to natural beauty but she’s barely turning heads in public looking like this. With make-up on, guys stop what they are doing.
