We’re used to seeing our favourite stars looking glam, but these photos show that when the armies of hair and makeup artists aren’t on standby, these celebrities without makeup can be a hit or miss.

She starred in the Hunger Games and Jennifer Lawrence looks virtually unrecognisable while doing a grocery run in a simple grey sweater.

    This is not journalism, nor is it news. It is mean and unnecessary, feeding the insecurities of venerable and impressionable people.
    Who of us does not look better when we are all dressed up for a special event and posing ready for a photo? We are all people, all the same and we shouldn’t care too much about the way we look, looks hold no real importance. What a shallow outlook on life. We must address our own insecurities and not thrive on how bad we think someone might look in a photo. We should strive to better who we are and how we care about others; we need to build each other up, not tear each other down.

      I agree with you totally. This is shocking. Just because they have ‘celebrity status’ doesn’t mean they’re not harmed by criticism like this. Some of it isn’t even true! take ‘trainwreck Lindzi lohan for example’ yes she may have mucked up in life but she doesn’t actually look bad in that photo sheesh… This is not fair- If it aims to make less confident individuals feel better about themselves it’s a crappy and mean way of doing so.

    Even though its harsh, it also proves that people are deceptive and its there fault for being fake.

    Not shocking at all. I think they just look natural, and is some cases better!

    Quite remarkable realy and it must be a sign of the times, but I’d only actually heard of less than half of these celebrities (7). These people are lucky, I go out without makeup – dogs bark and children cry!

    They all look absolutely fine to me. And indeed some of them look better without make up.
