15 Celebrity No-Makeup Pics We Weren't Meant To See

Celebrities are thought of always being glamorous, gorgeous, and stunning. They’re admired for their fashion sense and incredible beauty. Often, they become trendsetters and have fans copy their sense of style. Celebs often participate in photoshoots and post the most phenomenal pics to Instagram. They love to see their smoking hot pics being used in billboard advertisements and commercials. They also gain a lot of unwanted attention and have photographers following their every movement. Some photographers want to capture their beauty while others want to capture their most embarrassing moments. Paparazzi love to catch celebs at their realest. They also love to catch those awkward uncomfortable times.

There are numerous celebrity pics that the public was never meant to see. They thought these photos were hidden away and would never reappear. However, there’s nothing that the Internet can’t find. Some fans might be a little shocked to see some of these famous celebs without makeup. In fact, most of the celebrities hoped that fans would never see these pics. To be fair to celebrities, it’s not easy to look exceptionally glamorous all the time. It’s possible that a lot of them don’t really care if anyone sees these pics. However, there are many more celebs that dread anyone seeing them look less than perfect. Here is a look at 15 Pics of Celebs Without Makeup We Weren’t Meant To See.


15 Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart is best known for her portrayal of Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga. The success of the films resulted in her becoming a major Hollywood star. She also appeared in Panic Room, Adventureland, and Snow White and the Huntsman. She’s no stranger to controversy as she angered the entire Twilight fanbase when she cheated on then boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders. Kristen Stewart likely hates the idea of any pic she didn’t approve appearing online since it’s previously gotten her into hot water. Her whole affair with Rupert Sanders was exposed after they were caught in a compromising position on camera. Being seen without makeup is obviously not as bad as cheating but celebs like to maintain a certain type of image. So who knows? Maybe she would probably prefer to be caught cheating rather than with no makeup.

14 Tyra Banks

Even supermodels have some pics that they want the public to forget about. Tyra Banks rose to prominence as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and graced the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. In fact, she was the first African-American to appear on the SI Swimsuit cover. She’s walked the runway for Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Giorgio Armani. She’s appeared in ad campaigns for top brands such as Pepsi, Ralph Lauren, and Nike. Additionally, she created and hosts the reality TV competition series Americas Next Top Model. She’s built her career on her incredible beauty and business skills. Not every person can look beautiful all the time, especially someone as busy as Tyra. Most supermodels probably don’t want to be caught with no makeup and not looking their absolute best. There are many pics of Tyra not looking as the supermodel she's known as. There is a good chance she’d hope these pics would disappear.

13 Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson has sometimes come across as not the brightest person in the world. On the other hand, she’s considered one of the most beautiful celebs in Hollywood. She’s had many embarrassing moments caught on camera and being caught without makeup just adds to the list. Jessica has released several chart-topping albums and became a pop sensation. However, she became a household name after appearing in the popular reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The series revolved around Jessica and then husband Nick Lachey. She had many memorable moments on the series, such as the time she refused to eat Buffalo chicken wings because she thought they came from Buffalos. However, she’s always been praised for her incredible beauty. She still looks good without makeup but some pics are just meant to be private. She appears to be less than thrilled that she’s being photographed.

12 Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez set the world on fire with her music, beauty, and famous “assets.” She is often at the top of every hottest list there is. From her days as a Fly Girl on In Living Color to acting and singing, she’s always been considered the most beautiful. She released several number-one singles and starred in memorable films, including Selena and Out of Sight. Her whole life, she’s had men chasing after her but she kicks them to the curb when she’s done with them. She’s known for her many highly publicized relationships and breaking the hearts of some of the most famous celebs. She’s also known for being quite the diva and being unhappy if things don’t go the way she wants. It would be wise of her personal assistant to never let JLo know that there are pics of her without makeup circulating online.

11 Kate Upton

Even a supermodel that has built their entire career on hot and stunning photoshoots would like a few pics to remain hidden. Model Kate Upton is considered one of the most beautiful celebs of her generation. She had her big breakthrough after appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. There isn’t a man alive that doesn’t wish that they could make Kate Upton their wife. Her career continues to rise as she breaks into an acting career. She’s appeared in The Three Stooges, The Other Woman, and The Disaster Artist. Regardless, she still leaves men breathless with her steamy photoshoots. Oftentimes, Kate is too busy to bother with makeup and fancy clothes. She appears in this pic wearing no makeup, and it’s safe to assume that this pic wouldn’t be confused for an SI cover.

10 Khloe Kardashian

The Kardashian family maintains a certain type of image. They’re a family of socialites that are famous for being famous. They love to wear the most expensive jewelry, the best clothes, and top-of-the-line makeup. Kim Kardashian is usually the one at the center of attention, but Khloe Kardashian has made headlines as well. She gained a lot of attention after transforming her look and style. She’s played a big role in the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as well as the spin-offs Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and Khloe & Lamar. There isn’t a moment that the Kardashians aren’t dolled up. It’s rare anyone looks good just before or after working out so it can’t be held against Khloe. Khloe is caught wearing no makeup and not in some spectacular outfit. The Kardashians never want to be seen without makeup because it might hurt their image.

9 Katy Perry










Elle magazine once described Katy Perry “as though sketched by a teenage boy.” Katy Perry is a best-selling artist with thousands of fans all over the world. Her unique fashion sense, curvy body, and endless appeal have fans in a daze. GQ magazine once said that Katy is a “full-on male fantasy.” There isn’t a person in the world that hasn’t fallen in love with Katy. She has broken several Billboard records and even holds a few Guinness World Records. She’s best known for the chart-topping singles “I Kissed a Girl,” “Firework,” and “Wide Awake.” Katy has been caught several times by paparazzi wearing no makeup and in a less-than-flattering light. The Internet is filled with pics that Katy never wants her fans to see. This picture in particular is possibly one of the most unflattering pics of the pop sensation. Regardless, she’s still one of the hottest and most popular celebs in the world.


8 Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl has faced a great deal of criticism for some of her past comments. A couple of years ago, Katherine was on the rise in Hollywood and seemed ready to become the next big thing. She gained fame for her role as Izzie Stevens in the critically acclaimed medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. She had her big breakthrough with her role in the memorable comedy Knocked Up. She received significant backlash for claiming that Knocked Up was “a little sexist” and criticized the portrayal of women in the film. Later, she offended the writers and producers of Grey’s Anatomy after opting out of an Emmy nomination. She felt that the material she was given wasn’t good enough. The last thing she needs is for a picture of her wearing no makeup to attract any unwanted attention, although she probably blames the photographer for his technique.

7 Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes had her first breakthrough with her role as Joey Potter in the teen drama Dawsons Creek. She became one of the biggest celebrities in the world and went on to star in several films, including Disturbing Behavior, Go and Batman Begins. She’s considered one of the prettiest celebrities in Hollywood. People magazine once named her one of the 50 Most Beautiful People. She was once married to Tom Cruise, and this brought her a lot of unwanted attention. She pretty much couldn’t go anywhere without paparazzi trying to catch her in an embarrassing moment. In many instances, the paparazzi succeeded in catching her in those awkward moments. There are several unflattering pics of Katie nobody was ever meant to see. This particular pic is probably one of the more embarrassing. It seems that she doesn’t even realize her picture is being taken.

6 Britney Spears

Princess of Pop Britney Spears has had many ups and downs in her career. There is one particular time that she’d like to forget. Britney became an international superstar in the late ‘90s and became one of the hottest pop stars at the time. However, she later faced many personal issues that interfered with her career. She was married to Kevin Federline in a highly volatile relationship. She was heavily criticized for some of her questionable parenting skills. She had several stints in rehab and lost custody of her children. It was around this time that this infamous pic first surfaced. Britney has always evolved her look but shocked everyone when she shaved her head bald. The paparazzi often harassed her, and in this pic while wearing no makeup, she seems very bothered. However, Britney has bounced back and is hotter than ever.

5 Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is best known for being a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. She’s appeared in Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the several spin-offs. She even stars in her very own reality series, Life of Kylie. However, her true claim to fame is her stunning and much talked-about Instagram posts. Currently, she’s one of the top ten most followed people on Instagram. She often posts glamorous, beautiful, and sometimes risqué pics online. Her beauty and fashion sense are crucial to her success on social media. She only posts the hottest and best pics to Instagram. She’s not the type to post anything looking less than perfect. In fact, she’d be horrified knowing that these pics are out there. Any pic without makeup might be very embarrassing for her, considering the family she comes from. The entire empire is built on always looking exceptional.

4 Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has reached the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Lindsay first gained attention for her starring roles in Disney films Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. She had her big breakthrough with her role in the critically and commercially acclaimed film Mean Girls. She became one of the hottest and most in-demand celebs in Hollywood. However, she soon faced numerous personal problems that slowed down her career. Her behavior became highly erratic and her partying life style got out of control. She severed several stints in rehab to deal with her issues. As evident by this pic, she had several run-ins with the law. There are a plethora of reasons why she’d want these pics hidden from the public. These are actually a number of her mug shots that were released. However, not wearing makeup in these mug shots is the least of her problems.

3 Madonna

Before there was even Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus, there was Madonna. The Queen of Pop has always been known for her provocative and risqué image. She’s never been afraid to cross the line and stir up a bit of controversy. She holds the record for best-selling female recording artist of all time in the Guinness World Records. Throughout the ‘80s, she was one of the most desirable celebs. She’s nearly 60 now but remains one of the wealthiest and most famous celebs. She’s at the point in her life and career where she clearly doesn’t care what anyone thinks, although she never really did. However, nobody likes embarrassing pics surfacing. Here, Madonna is photographed wearing no makeup and is clearly not happy about that. Even if she’d prefer nobody to see this pic, she probably gets over it pretty fast when counting her money.

2 Kim Kardashian

Socialite Kim Kardashian is known for her incredible beauty, stunning fashion sense, and has one of the most famous “assets” in the world. Her entire career is based around always looking glamorous and dolled up. Kim has played a crucial role in the success of the Kardashian brand and the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Each member of the family has had their chance to shine but Kim always shines the brightest. Kim is often featured in pics so hot that they break the Internet. Her photoshoots and social media pics garner a lot of attention. Despite being one of Instagram’s most followed stars, there are still some pics that she would like burned. Kim not wearing any makeup might even be a shock to Kanye West as she’s rarely seen looking less than gorgeous.

1 Pamela Anderson

In the ‘90s, Pamela Anderson was one of the most desirable and hottest celebs. It would have been impossible to walk into a teenage boy’s room and not find a poster of Pamela on the wall or under their bed. Pamela has graced the cover of Playboy magazine more than any other celebrity. She’s also been a Playmate of The Year as well. She’s best remembered for her role as CJ Parker in Baywatch. There are certainly countless pics that Pamela would like her fans to enjoy and drool over. However, even Pamela has pics that she’d like to be destroyed along with a certain video. There are obviously other times when she would rather not be photographed. This is certainly one of those times. She doesn’t look hideous without makeup but her career is largely built around her appearance. She wasn’t wearing any makeup in her private video that leaked either but nobody seemed to notice.
