11 Celebrity Shots Without Makeup That Can Give Us All Hope

I wish I could wake up like this.

Being a celebrity is a strange thing. On one hand, we enjoy having this pantheon of figures for us all to worship and gawk over. But on the other hand, we love, just as much, to be reminded that, at the end of the day, stars are just people.

Getting a peak behind the curtain of all the glitz and glamour can be all the inspiration we need to feel like we can accomplish anything these people have.

Then again, some of these women clearly started as 10s before make-up and Photoshop ever took them over the top.

1. Zooey Deschanel


Zooey Deschanel's just-got-out-of-bed look is still at a level most of us aim for. It's a bit jarring to see how much of her near-iconic eye look is thanks to eyeliner and mascara but we'll gawk at a fresh-faced Zooey any day of the week.

Emma Stone's just strolling around making us wonder why make-up even exists. She looks virtually identical!

3. Gal Gadot


Super-mommy Gal Gadot shared this photo to Instagram along with a very relatable caption about a sleepless night followed by some braindead TV with her daughter. It's a reminder that a lot of people have the same problems, some of us are just more stunning when we have them.

4. Liv Tyler


Liv Tyler's another star who's let us take a peak into the private, beautiful moments of her life. Being a mom often makes putting your face on the least of your concerns. Sunday morning nursing just focuses on different priorities than a red carpet event.

5. Natalie Dormer

Natalie Dormer is out here showing that even in casual clothes and a clean face, she's still turning heads in London.

6. Zendaya


Zendaya's built up a reputation for how natural her make-up looks are but this candid selfie she shared right before heading to bed gave us a peek at what she actually looks like au naturel.

7. Bella Hadid


More than likely, freckles aren't the first thing that come to mind when you picture Bella Hadid. And yet, here she is, showing off the fact that being flawless doesn't mean just one thing.

8. Kylie Jenner


Speaking of freckles, here's Kylie, showing every natural fleck and speck on her face, prompting fans to gush and feel closer to her than ever before. And, let's be honest, she probably sold a million of those scarves in the process.

9. Emilia Clarke

Whether she's conquering kingdoms as a blonde or fighting Terminators as a brunette, Emilia Clarke manages to be just as stunning offscreen and natural as she is onscreen.

10. Kesha


2016 laid a lot of Kesha's personal life out for the world to see. Instead of hiding, she faced the publicity head-on and, with pictures like these, made sure we remembered the person behind the superstar.

11. Lily Collins


In the caption for this image, Collins declared that she was "makeup free. Let the evening begin..." hinting that, for these celebrities the real nights out can sometimes be the ones where no one expects you to be done up.
