Au Naturel Trend: Celebrities Spotted Without Makeup! (PHOTOS)

By: Laura Franco / October 12, 2011

Whether they’re on the East Coast or West Coast, it seems like celebrities are heavily embracing the makeup-free ensemble. On Tuesday, Kelly Clarkson was spotted in NYC without any foundation or mascara, while Demi Lovato stopped by a gas station last week in Sherman Oaks, Calif., without sporting any beauty products.

Also this week, beauty vixen Carmen Electra decided on the fresh face look during an errand run in Los Angeles.

What do you think: with or without makeup? Sound off in the comments!

Celebrities are often flawlessly dolled up on the red carpet, but in reality, these starlets don’t always don all that makeup. The hours of prep time before a major party or premiere can definitely be tedious and tiring, so we definitely understand why these beauties opt for a natural appearance!

CoverGirl star Taylor Swift told People Magazine in 2008 why she prefers a fresh face ever so often:

“I have blonde eyelashes and blonde eyebrows, so my typical insecurity is that my eyes go away when I don’t have makeup on. But it’s important to be comfortable with who you are and go natural once in a while. It’s really something to let someone in and see you completely vulnerable. I write really personal songs and let people in, but usually with my face I have makeup. So it’s interesting to get personal and vulnerable for a photo shoot.”
