Kim Kardashian Wears No Makeup, Appears to Be Having a Barefaced Moment

08/01/2014 at 10:17 AM ET

There are a few things on which you can rely: The earth will rotate around the sun in 365 days. Death and taxes are the two constants in everyone’s lives. And Kim Kardashian will always leave the house with a full face of contour makeup, eyelashes, highlighter and lip gloss — even to the gym. But there may be a rip in the time-space continuum today, because not only did Kardashian step outside without her usual full face, she Instagrammed a makeup-free photo of herself. Up is down, black is white, etc.

If you do keep up with the Kardashians, you will know that the middle sister recently posed for 1,200 (not a typo) selfies while in Thailand to send to husband Kanye West. So she knows a thing or two about camera-ready makeup, because she’s prepared to be on camera at literally any time of the day or night, even if it’s just her own camera. But perhaps the new mom is turning over a new, more low-key leaf, because she appeared very confident in her skin while walking around after a session at Barry’s Bootcamp in L.A.

And Kardashian took advantage of her post-workout glow to snap a barefaced selfie with the cover of Love magazine, featuring a familiar face: Sister Kendall Jenner, 18. Kardashian is quoted in the magazine saying that all of Kendall’s success is the result of her hard work and not family connections. “She had to work extra hard to gain this respect and to fight for people to see she’s serious,” Kardashian says in the magazine. “Marc Jacobs gave her a real shot and treated her like any other model … Then Riccardo [Tisci] and Karl [Lagerfeld] gave her a chance and she has proven that she is the real deal.”

Echoed Jenner: “Kim was invited to a lot of the shows that I was in. She called me before and was like, ‘Hey, I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?’ and I was like, ‘No.’” But it doesn’t appear that there were any hard feelings, seeing as her big sis is now one of the biggest (barefaced) boosters of her modeling career.

I think she actually looks quite good without all of her usual makeup, which is almost always applied quite thickly. She should go makeup-free more often!

Meanwhile, North was getting a makeover and a pedicure.

Sorry but I don’t buy the no make-up here. Her face looks too “pore-free” and her mouth looks like lip gloss to me. With that being said, I like the look a whole lot more than the over-the-top makeup she typically wears. However, when her boobs are pushed up and spilling over and she takes a photo she knows will be seen with her sister’s magazine cover, it is a staged shot with minimal make-up – NOT makeup free. Just MO

Reblogged this on Circus of Face and commented:
She’s her natural self, some people can pull it off, others can’t. She looks more ethnic without the makeup. Most times, I give my face a good wash and moisturize and nothing else. Good for her. Despite her haters and overexposure, she’s a beautiful woman.

Honestly, I think she could walk outside like that and nobody would realize who she was.

Put the makeup back on!!!! Dang….. She’s really ugly.

She has destroyed her face. What is up with those lips. Example of how plastic surgery and Botox/ fillers has gone too far. So sad.

In my opinion, she looks amazing without makeup :)
