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

OK I love Jessica Simpson. But why do they say Sans makeup… They put light makeup on her u can totally tell. There is a pic of her with Ken and she has no makeup in that one. She is beautiful the magazine editors need to get it right…..

I think doing her show “The Price of Beauty” has opened her eyes and given her more inner confidence! Way to go Jessica! Don’t listen to the jealous haters!

She’s a naturally pretty girl. I’ve always thought she looked better without makeup. She’s very lucky! The only thing about this article that gets to me is that it’s obvious some makeup was used in these shots.

I never was really that advid of a Jessica Simpson fan as I was one of those people who thought she was just another popstar! I always thought she was really pretty though…now from this I not only think she is beautiful from the inside out, but I respect her now! I know she is a person of substance and that is what makes me love her! I hope she continues to be blessed with this newfound innerpeace and joy that she so deserves! Love you J!

She has makeup on!!!

Holly on

well it’s obvious that she is wearing blush and mascara.. but as far as the rest of her face who can tell how she really looks with all of that hair in her face.

Jessica looks great! It’s a shame from Hollywood to the smallest of towns we’re inindated from the media to be something that we’re not. Jessica is getting older and with age comes wisdom. You go Girl!!

Katie on

pretty pictures… but NOT make up free??! There is no way this girl is not wearing eye make up at the very least. no need to deceive.

Linda on

She is so pretty! I think she should go for natural like this more often!

DB, she probably had make up on when she went to the shoot, and it all didn’t come off when they cleaned her face. That’s happened to me before. I think she looks absolutely gorgeous.
