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

Oh please! It’s very obvious she is wearing blush, lip goss and mascara. She’s wearing makeup all right. It may be lighter than normal, and good for her (she looks better that way), but she is most certainly wearing makeup.

She indeed looks very beautiful, but I’m sorry, she IS wearing make-up on the cover, she has on base, blush, lip gloss and eyeliner, it’s very obvious.

so gorgeous. I love REAL beauty.

Stephanie on

Yes, she’s stunning without makeup on, and I applaud her! But if she’s not wearing fake eyelashes in that top photo I’ll give you my next paycheck. So totally cheating.

Morgan on

She still has makeup on!!!!!! and so what she air dried her hair!

I think its great! she really seems to be getting herself on a much higher level of maturity kudos to her! I never cared much for her, but seeing her on VH1 about different culture of what is beautiful, really makes me glad she is who she is.
Keep up the good work Jessica!

She’s a pretty girl… but it looks like she’s wearing mascara and a little blush to me.

She looks more beautiful being natural.

Ashley on

You can’t even see her face, it’s covered in hair.

And she is for sure wearing makeup in the cover shoot.
