When you are absolutely into the selfie craze then you must be aware of the style that’s trending all over, just like the ‘no makeup selfie’. Initiated by the celebs, the no makeup pictures are the latest social media craze, especially in Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. And this trend has even raised whopping sum of money for Cancer Research!
As celebs started flaunting their bare faces across social media channels, it immediately became a trend, with everyone clicking their pictures sans makeup.
Perhaps, the phrase, ‘less is more’ best suits here and with no makeup photo fashion, they have taken this theory one step ahead in terms of beauty. Even this is one of the first in the latest social media trends that has stood for a noble cause – cancer cause. With celebs urging everyone to go makeup free on their pages, their retweets are alternatively contributing hugely to Cancer Research.
The ‘no makeup selfie’ is perhaps the first selfie to raise millions for charity.
Since beauty is all about going natural and the raw faces of the celebs have become a lovely reminder to all the beauty freak folks that there is nothing truly called ‘flawless’ after all!
Hollywood’s Gwyneth Paltrow was also caught up with the no makeup selfie craze a few weeks ago. Gwyneth who shared her natural face to celebrate World Water Day, also posed with drinking water with a message, “Water is full of healing power”. So, this summer drink a lot more water if it can make you look this good!
Kendall Jenner has been making headlines for her natural beauty after she walked shows including Marc Jacobs and Chanel during Fashion Week and this makeup free selfie of hers tells it all.
Supermodel Cara Delevingne, who is famous for her thick brows, shared her morning snap after New Year’s Eve, where she was spotted partying with Rihanna. She captioned her photo, “Last night was epic! Morning 2014, #ouch”.
Known for her bizarre makeup and outrageous costumes, it was definitely surprising to see Lady Gaga doing such a raw selfie without any drama and rather embraced her “Born this Way” lyrics when she posted this photo on her website last summer. Well, more than that album, we were much reminded of her Monster album after seeing this pose.
Pop princess and X Factor judge Cheryl Cole also joined in the fight against cancer and posted this makeup free photo of herself last week with the caption, “I woke up like dis.” I think we all wish we could wake up looking this pretty!
The VS angel Miranda Kerr shared her natural beauty selfie before shooting a campaign for H&M.
The girl, who is now ruling the music world had recently shared a series of selfies from her Barbados trip, inspiring her female fans from 34.7 million Twitter followers to go makeup free. She had posted this image with the caption “just got ‘laid’.”
Even Queen B had shared her beautiful bare faced pix for us mere mortals to see! Through a series of shots uploaded to Instagram, Beyonce is seen lying in bed, laughing, without a trace of makeup on her face. Unsurprisingly, the photos received hundreds of thousands of comments and likes from her followers!
Demi Lovato encouraged her millions of Twitter followers to go makeup free by posting her own bare-faced snap last April with the motivational phrase: “Ladies be brave today…take off your makeup…WE are beautiful.” It seems Demi is certainly inspirational since thousands of her followers or ‘Lovatics’ then sent the star photos of their own makeup-free faces!
A similar message was also shared by AnnaLynne along-with her selfie. She had posted this filter-free photo with the caption, “I woke up this morning and decided I’m over Hollywood’s perfection requirement. To all my girls (and boys) who have ever been embarrassed by their skin! I salute you! I’m not perfect – and that’s okay with me!”
Last but not the least Miley Cyrus
Perhaps she is among the few celebs, who have shared maximum number of selfies. It was pretty expected to see once again her crazy side. She shared her no makeup selfie clean out of the shower a few months ago. Fresh faced and beautifully natural, it is of course ruined by that signature tongue of hers!
Bollywood no makeup selfie
Even the selfie craze seems nowhere to die in Bollywood and the makeup free images are a rage these days. From Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha to Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, almost every actress is seen posing with their nude faces for their social media fans. They may not be doing this for a cause, but they are for sure completely into this craze, whilst inspiring all of their female fans to go makeup free atleast for their Twitter and Instagram profiles.
