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.

She is beautiful when she is done, but without all those makeup and fancy clothes- every other girl on the street is more beautiful than she is! I saw her and I can tell not sure what the hype is about them! I mean their are not hot at all! They look overweight and dirty to me , but I guess everybody has different taste..

Would someone please tell Kim and Kloe to lay off the lip enhancers, they are horrible. So much prettier with their natural lips. Also, all that makeup that Kim wears does not do her any justice. She WAS a naturally pretty girl until she started messing with her face….leave well enough alone and be thankful for what you have.

Wow. I think she is absolutely stunning with no makeup on! I think the makeup makes her look like a porcelain doll, but without it.. she looks like she has some fire and light inside her.. much much better..
