Makeup-Free Monday: Gabrielle Union is Actually Flawless

We always talk about how amazing Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Aniston look for their age, and props to them, but in all realness Gabrielle Union takes the cake.

The Bring It On actress — who we thought was MAYBE in her early 30s — is freaking 42 years old… which means she played a teenage cheerleader when she was in her late 20s.

How the hell does she look so good?

Well, it might have something to do with her literally flawless skin you can clearly see in the photo above. While the actress looks stunning with makeup, she’s even more beautiful without.

In fact, we’re pretty sure she feels the same way. Last week she shared two photos, one after the other, on Instagram. The first showcased her in full hair and makeup. She captioned the pic, “Snatched… @makeupbymario did the damn thang on makeup and @danteblandshaw gave me the power pony of LIFE!! #BeingMaryJane press tour NYC.”

The second (seen above) showed what she looks like after a long day of work when she takes all the makeup off. She wrote, “And this is me… waiting patiently for #Scandal &#HowToGetAwayWithMurder … and some fries with ranch dressing and hot sauce… With aching feet and untamed edges… jus me.”

I don’t know about you, but the second photo is just as (if not more) stunning. Envious!
