Back in March, we first shared 12 celebrities (like Taylor Swift and Kathryn Bernardo) who proudly showed off their makeup-free faces on Instagram. This is because we wanted you to not only see your fave stars without makeup, but also see that they look just as gorgeous (if not more) without all the layers of profesh makeup. In this day and age where looking picture-perfect is becoming the norm, we wanted to inspire you to show off your candid and natural beauty (sans filter, too!) by posting your very own legit makeup-free selfie! So we went ahead and searched for 12 more of your faves and their makeup-free snaps. Just scroll down below to check them all out and find out below why we challenge you to do the same.
