These Stars Aren’t Afraid to Show Off Their Bare Faces! See Kim Kardashian, Sofia Richie and More

As much as we love all things Hollywood, there’s no denying it can be tricky to keep up with celebrity beauty trends. After all, not everyone has access to glam squads. That said, there is one A-list trend we can most definitely replicate on our own … not wearing any makeup at all!

In 2016, Grammy Award-winning artist Alicia Keys started a #NoMakeup campaign in Hollywood, later telling Glamour U.K. for their autumn/winter 2020 issue that she stopped wearing makeup because she had become “addicted” to it and “didn’t feel comfortable without it.”

Though the “Girl on Fire” singer has since returned to wearing makeup in a way that feels right to her, she opened up about her “self-discovery journey” in a video posted to Instagram in May 2022, in which she discussed beauty standards, the pressure to look “perfect” and more.

“As you may have seen, I definitely have rebelled, and I had to go all the way over there in order to just find my voice. To discover who I wanted to be and how I wanted to be,” she explained in the clip while talking about her skincare and beauty brand, Keys Soulcare. “And you get to decide what makes you, you. I get to create my own beauty standards. So that might be fresh-faced, that might be full-wattage — whatever that is, it’s whatever feels good for you.”

Alicia isn’t the only celeb to forgo makeup often, though. From Kim Kardashian and Sofia Richie to Cardi B and Demi Lovato, some of your favorite stars aren’t afraid to show off their bare faces. Of course, it’s a lot easier to ditch your foundation when you’re working with blemish-free skin. However, that’s not the case for a lot of famous people — Kim included.

In fact, the Kardashians star has been dealing with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for many years. For those who don’t, psoriasis can cause flare-ups that lead to scales and itchy, dry patches.

“When I was 25, I had my first psoriasis flare-up. I got a common cold, and since psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, this triggered it. It was all over my stomach and legs. Luckily, in my apartment complex at the time, my neighbor was a dermatologist,” Kim previously detailed for Poosh.

“I showed it to him, and he said to come into the office and he would give me a shot of cortisone and then hopefully it would go away (since it was my first big outbreak). I did this and my psoriasis completely went away for about five years,” the KKW Beauty mogul recalled. Unfortunately, Kim’s psoriasis came back in her early 30s.

Now in her 40s, Kim continues to deal with her psoriasis, but she’s grown a lot mentally since first being diagnosed. “I’ve become extremely comfortable with my psoriasis,” the mother of four expressed. “No matter where it is on my body, sometimes I am fine with showing it off and other times I don’t want it to be a distraction, so I cover it up with body makeup.”
