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

While I give Jessica great props for this, I’d bet my life that the photos were re-touched, even if it were without her knowledge. Look at all the others who have claimed to been all natural, only to find out the editors secretly retouched the photos.

Beautful woman anyway.

I am sincerely impressed with Jessica’s decision to be bold and beautiful in her own, natural skin. I think if more celebrities followed this movement, we could solve a lot of problems with women and their false ideas of what beauty really is. I was never a fan of Jessica, but that is starting to change in a big way. I see she is a normal person like the rest of us who struggles with criticism and self-esteem.

Go Jessica! You are beautiful and I love your new approach!

She clearly has colored lip gloss or stain on. No one’s lips are that color pink.

She looks awesome.. Much better then the blond fake hair and fake tan look that she use to sport. Much more classy looking..

I’m glad that she’s finally discovered where her true beauty lies.

interesting that it’s hyped about her being no makeup, etc. Perhaps that top picture is au naturel, but I’m telling you there’s no way that the cover shot is without makeup. So why not? If that’s what the story is about, why is the cover shot with makeup and good lighting, etc? Almost like false advertising if you ask em.

For once someone in Hollywood grabs the concept that beauty is from within. Therefore the need to impress the world is just a public show. Yeah for you Jessica!

She’s gorgeous! Who needs makeup?

I think what she is doing is really cool and I think she is beautiful no matter what.

I L.O.V.E. the shot of her with the braid. So beautiful; and I’m so glad she is growing in to her own self [confidence]. It’s Time Girl!
