See Rihanna Sans Makeup -- Plus Other Bare-Faced Beauties

09/18/2013 at 11:09 AM ET

Remember the days when stars would rather walk the red carpet naked than be snapped without a full face of makeup? Yeah, we don’t either. With her bare-faced Instagram posted today, Rihanna joins a huge group of A-list stars who are sharing makeup-free shots with the world via social media. Whether it’s to show how normal they are, to control the “natural” look they want to present or just to brag about how amazing their skin is, the hottest trend in Hollywood is to snap a just-woke-up selfie, slap a Valencia filter on it and let the compliments roll in. Check out some of our favorite recent makeup-free shots below and tell us: Who did bare-faced best?


Kim Kardashian

Jennifer Aniston:


Demi Lovato:

AnnaLynne McCord:

All the ladies look beautiful, but Jen Aniston is the best! She’s so gorgeous!

I think Demi looks the best without makeup, and that AnnaLynne McCord looks the worst. She should never go makeup free or she should use some proactiv first.

Aniston has light makeup. If she has no make up, she would look like my 60 year old grandmother.

Who is truly without make up AnnaLynn McCord, RiRi & Snooky.

KK def has makeup on in that pic…she is obsessed with selfies, yes. BUT this is not a bare canvas, just a bare mid-section

Rhianna, AnnaLynne, and Snookie are the only ones without makeup. I think Jennifer is wearing just a little, and Demi is DEFINITELY wearing makeup. Look at her lips and cheeks! Hard to tell with Beyonce, too many filters. Kim is too far away and using a filter, but I hardly doubt she is 100% makeup free.

Tell me why makeup is demonized again? I know I don’t look good without it, even just a little. It’s not the end of the world to admit that.

Looking at these pictures – of course Demi looks the best – she is the youngest. I love Jennifer Anniston – but she has something on her face – who is she kidding? Why are these women so obsessed with taking selfies – I get tired of all the selfies that these women (any women/man) take of themselves. Why do they think we care and need to have that in our day?

love this new trend

Anders on

Hey Nope,
My cheeks and lips look very similar to Demi’s without an ounce of makeup on.

Amber on

Rihanna and AnnaLynn look the worst.
Demi looks good but tired and doesn’t have the brightness you would find outside of hollywood in ladies her age.
Jen, Beyonce and Kim look good.
Snooki seems the most natural without make up.
