Makeup-Free Monday: Lady Gaga Posts Selfie Before Oscar Performance
The nominated singer posted this fresh-faced selfie while getting ready for the Oscars, where she performed a heart wrenching rendition of her song “Til It Happens to You” from the documentary The Hunting Ground, what many called the most powerful performance of the night.
Lady Gaga, usually known for her wild and adventurous makeup and outfits, looked radiant in this pre-glam selfie. Fans are used to seeing the star from head to toe in glitter, outrageous art-like outfits or looking classically chic with Taylor Kinney on the red carpet.
This no-makeup look is definitely different for the star, but she looks absolutely beautiful in her natural skin. Gaga has been a long time advocate for self-love and acceptance. Makeup or makeup-free, she encourages her fans to love the skin they are in.
“I don’t really view [no-makeup] as ‘natural,” said Gaga, “I think that artifice is the new reality. It’s more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do. Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside.”
