The Before and After {Part 2}

Hello, Lovelies! I hope everyone in the US had a terrific Memorial Day weekend! 

I couple posts back I posted a bunch of pictures of celebrities without their makeup on to prove that each one of us is beautiful even without the concealer and mascara. If you haven't seen part 1 click here to go see why I'm doing this series in more detail. I even posted my before and after picture (YIKES!).

Let's begin, shall we? 

Gisele Bundchen

Alessandra Ambrosio

Miranda Kerr

Heidi Klum

Halle Berry

Penelope Cruz

Jennifer Lopez

Eva Longoria

Jennifer Garner

Drew Barrymore

And a few more just for good measure:


I know this make me feel a whole lot better! When I see that "the most beautiful women in the world" have flaws and look like normal people, I know there's hope for me too!

Stay Beautiful!
xoxo,
Elizabeth

  5. What a great post! I was a makeup artist for years, so know first hand what amazing transformations a little maquillage can do...we all have our inner beauty, and the best thing we can do for a lift is to smile...
    Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week,

    1. I agree! Eva Mendes doesn't have makeup on, but she has that huge smile which instantly makes her more beautiful. Thanks for your comment!

  6. OH goodnees me this is a scary scary thing. But also absolutely wonderful. I have always wondered what ACTUAL naturally gorgeous girls would look like if Hollywood got to doll them all up and photoshop them. They'd be 10 times prettier than all of the "World's Prettiest".

    1. I feel the same way Erin! Isn't it sad and wrong? We idolize these people so much for their beauty, but they really just have money to make themselves beautiful. Thanks for commenting Hun!

  9. Another great addition to this inspiring series...I do believe true beauty comes from within, the nicer a person is, the more beautiful they would seem to me :)

  11. LOVE this, Elizabeth! What a feel-good and self-affirming post this is. We all know somewhere in the back of our minds that the photos we see in the mags have been photoshopped and flaws are hidden ... and this just shows us that those stars that we admire look much like us and "EveryGirl" that walks by us on the street everyday. Thanks for collecting all of the withs and withouts (make-up) here! {and thanks for stopping by this week xoxo}

  19. Hello Elizabeth, I love the post. It is true that we are all beautiful when we produce. Gisele Bundchen is our pride, she's prettier in person than on TV. A hug from Brazil and thank you Valeria

  20. This is so hilarious :) I mean, we go around, feeling inferior to all those perfect celebrities, without realizing that they are just normal women like us! Thanks so much for reminding me of that!
