Back-to-blonde beauty Julianne Hough made a name for herself tearing up the Dancing with the Stars dancefloor in high-drama looks, but when the two-time winner is off duty she’s happy to leave the stage makeup behind. “I used to compete in that world where it’s like heavy, heavy, heavy makeup that doesn’t even look blended in it’s just so thick and so tan–that’s the way I grew up,” the Proactiv face told PEOPLE at an event for the brand in New York last week. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve actually worn less makeup. I’ve been trying to be a lot less va-va-voom.” And feeling comfortable in her skin, she’s found, is a reflection of how she feels inside. “When I feel my best I’ll wear no makeup whatsoever and feel fantastic,” she says. Julianne is bringing her fresh-faced philosophy to the big screen in her upcoming acting role. “You’ll see in Footloose, I don’t have any makeup on basically,” she says. “I have [on] mascara–just a little bit–and concealer, and this little bit of creamy highlighter on my cheeks, and that’s it!” – Hana Choi; reporting by Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

She is a very beautiful, natural woman, however, how about this…an article about her not wearning make up should contain a photo where she isn’t wearing make up…novel idea i know.

actually wearing a mineral foundation is protective for the delicate facial skin that is being bombarded every time we walk outside with harsh environmental toxins

She is still wearing makeup when she says she not. That is still considered make up

Eh, she looks old for her age. I doubt she wears no makeup everyday. Since when is mascara and concealer “basically” no makeup? Those two products can work wonders.
