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

She look great, confidence comes from within and it shows. You go for it girl.

I think she is so beautiful, inside and out! I’m glad she is embracing her body and is showing such confidence!

She looks beautiful! Love this initiative and example that she is setting for everyone.

I agree with DB. This is not a makeup-free look. It was either makeup-free and retouched, or makeup and no retouching. But certainly not both.

Shiloh on

I love it! I think every magazine cover girl should do this!

Sorry, I’m not a Jessica fan, but wouldn’t it be a nice change if, just once, she could take a picture without her double-D’s exposed? Who cares about the makeup – most 29 year olds look great without makeup. Big deal.

She looks so much younger without all the make-up. I think she looks lovely.

Becky on

I like the natural look, but she is definitely wearing make up. Her new show “Price of Beauty” sends a good message. Some people will do anything to feel beautiful, but if we love ourselves and take care of ourselves, we are beautiful.

Dawn on

Clearly, she has make up on (I’ve seen her without make up)…why lie?…she’s a pretty girl…
