No Makeup?? BAH!

Let me preface this by saying I've been incredibly grumpy lately. Staying up too late with Twitter parties and the like and then spilling half a jar of rubber cement on the carpet last night didn't help.

So, anyway, in the mornings I like to waste time before work catching up on celebrity gossip taking my time getting dressed so I look uber professional.

Have you noticed the plethora of photos of celebrities without makeup? I like to look at those so photo galleries regularly. That way I can put my nose in the air and say "Hruuuummmmph - even I look better than that celebrity!"

And then I came across the one of Jessica Simpson from the cover of Marie Claire magazine. the one allegedly with no makeup.

The caption says..... Jessica Simpson..... sans makeup. "I don't have anything to prove anymore," Simpson told the magazine. "What other people think of me is not my business."

Only problem is that she definitely has makeup on in the photo; look at her eyes - is that not eyeshadow and liner???? I see this far too often in those photo galleries of celebrities without makeup. If it is really without makeup, then shouldn't the celebrity NOT BE WEARING ANY MAKEUP?????

Does this bother anybody else?


For those still tuning into DWTS: A week or so ago, I said to VC that Aiden would be voted off soon now that his wife and kids appeared on the show. To me that is the death knell - especially when there is a performer who is cute and fans prefer to think he is hot and single :D

I saw this. I'm not sure if she is or not. I know people think she's stupid, but I sort of like her. I find her endearing.

Michelle Pixie said...

It sure looks like she is sportin' some lip gloss to me! Liar Liar Pants On Fire!! Besides I've been watching The Price of Beauty...

mac said...

Yeah, what you said!

Didn't she do an ACNE commercial a few years ago? She claimed to use whatever it was to help with her SEVERE breakouts.

Wouldn't at least some of that be evident in a "sans makeup" photo?

Or was she lying then and not now? Both times, it seems !

And, since when was stupid sexy?

Well, whether she is wearing make up or not you can bet your bottom Dollar that she will have been Photoshopped within an inch of her life. Pimply / lined/ ageing / fat / gaunt /unattractive people on front covers do not sell magazines. So basically, it's still all smoke and mirrors.

Lucy said...

It is misleading to say without makeup. I believe she wanted to do a cover shot without all the touch up they do. I do enjoy her reality show, I think it is the Price Of Beauty on VH1, it is actually a Reality show you learn from, they are traveling the world and learning what different cultures view as BEAUTY and she along with the viewers are gaining knowledge and perspectives.

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I think for celebrities that is considered without makeup. LOL They should go without makeup AND airbrushing!

and she's so full of it about not caring what people think because if she really didn't, she wouldn't even talk about it, period.

People who don't care about something don't go on and on about it.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

She's totally got makeup on....

Who is Aiden? I got the tail end of the show last night (while waiting for Lost) and had no idea who he is and what he's famous for.

Jen said...

I don't even know why they say they have no make up on. It should say, "Celebs with no make up on...well, just a little"

DWTS- Poor Aiden. He can't dance but I love All My Children (even though he isn't on anymore) and I was hoping he would go a little further. I am upset that they have Nicole on there. So not fair!

Janna Bee said...

Hey she might have no makeup on! Some people do look like they are wearing eyeliner naturally- look at Billy Zane (I think that's his name).

Housewife Savant said...

I just read this on an empty stomach and naked, unless you count eggs and cheese and jammies.
If you're into splitting hairs 'n all.

Randi Troxell said...

yes.. i so agree, it bothers me too..

in fact i saw this issue of some mag where celebrities were "not wearing" makeup... and lets just say, either they were, or they were not and the mag TOTALLY airbrushed and played around...

quite annoying!

NIKOL said...

I wonder if by "makeup" what they really are referring to is foundation. I'd believe she has no foundation on. Eye makeup is a different story. But...whatevs. Like other commenters have said, there's most assuredly some Photoshopping going on.

Salt said...

I'm so glad you posted this! I was at the gym last night (sans makeup) and I could see that they were talking about something Jessica Simpson related on entertainment news, but didn't have headphones so I couldn't hear what was going on.

It definitely looks like she has at least a little bit of makeup going on there. Definitely.

Yankee Girl said...

Hmmm....interesting. Only a celebrity can get away with something like that. When I saw the pic I really didn't even care to look that closely, and then you mentioned eyeliner. Maybe it's tattooed on. But probably not, JS is not that hardcore.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Meh, I can't stand that woman! I'm not a celeb watcher and definitely NOT a reality show watcher so I don't really have a comment that would be popular here ;) You still love me, right??

Joy said...

Marie Claire and JS are such liar liars plants for hire!

Lisa said...

sans makeup where "famous" people are concerned is whatever they want it to be! Don't you know they wake up in the morning with a prefect face...lipstick and all...nothing smeared.
They are so special.

*gag*

Christina said...

I don't think so. For someone who was spokesperson for Proactive, I doubt she looks that good w/o makeup. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

Laffylady said...

Oooh.. very good point about Adien..I hadent thought about it that way...I guess you are right..and about the makeup...Lololol...yes I also say .."wow I look as good as them too"...Ha...but you are right..again,..she has on makeup..what do they think, we cant tell..?I dont know..crazy a-- sh--..!

Tracie said...

It def. looks like she's wearing liner. I think these makeup-free celebrity pics are really more natural makeup looks. But that doesn't sound as catchy on a magazine cover.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

I'm going to say that she definitely is wearing some makeup...and that the magazine completely touched up that photo! I wonder if she has eyeliner tattooed on. I know somebody that had that done, and it freaks me out!
