more stars without makeup!



hey kids! i hope everyone enjoyed their turkey (or tofurky) yesterday! i sort of had a boring day (i won’t lie) but i did manage to take my two doggies over to laurel canyon dog park because they’re probably two of the things i am most thankful for in this world…parker & fidel are the best!



anyways i bet the ladies below who were featured in an article in the latest STAR magazine are thankful for makeup! too bad they didn’t have time to include rosie o’donnell…that would have been great timing to have kelly ripa and her on the same page! one popbytes reader commented the other day that makeup mattered because that was her trade! so besides people not looking their best without makeup – some people would also be out of a job! so makeup is looking quite important – i’m just glad as a guy i don’t have to deal with applying it – it must be such a pain in the ass! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!



PS in case you missed it – here is the cover of STAR with two more gals without makeup on! (lopez + couric)

    That Courteney Cox picture is so unbelievably old. I have world of Courteney candids and that set Star magazine used is probably one of mine where she looks at her most tired face. Other than that her face isn’t different from what it is without make up.

    If only all girls would take off their make-up, the stars wouldn’t have to be embarrassed in the tabloids.

    I think that with makeup they look weird I prefer them natural

    Makeup does terrible things to your skin but the truth is, after only a day or so without it, your skin regains some of its own natural coloring and healthy glow.
    These ‘stars’ were clearly photographed pretty freshly washed and, I suspect, would look much more familiar given another day to recoup.
    Hell…even if they look terrible in the first set of pictures, how freaking many people to claim to look as terrific they do in the second set of pictures?!

    Just goes to prove my point…Every woman is beautiful, we just can’t afford to have make-up artist, hair stylist or fashion stylist…

  • Nicky

    stars look so normal without makeup.
    makeup isn’t always a drag though, popbytes. it’s fun to put on when you’re going out at night because you can choose what kind of look you want to have.
