Much has been done and plastered with “no makeup” or “no photoshop” but the truth is, not many famous people can afford to be seen without makeup.
As was actually reading a confession the other day (followed by a good hundred or so other similar confessions) from a stay at home mum who would not dare be bare faced, hence she was wearing makeup all day, every day. So it’s not just the famous people, eh?
Below few photos from Scott Trindle who was commissioned by the Viva Model agency to shot some of its top models with no makeup or retouching for a special exhibition marking the agency’s opening in London. Natalia Vodianova, Edita Vilkeviciute, Kim Noorda are some of the names and famous faces you’ll see with no makeup or any other styling other than their own, as they were when they walked through the door for the photoshooting. I personally think the pictures add more character and authenticity to the actual persons who were being photographed. That and I’m a bare – faced chica for 90% of my time. How about you? (you can see more images here)
They look natural and lovely. :)
I told of late I am almost always without make-up? Only a bit of cheating with Touche Eclat when I go outdoors. (But always moisturizer of SPF!!)
As for this au-natural look of this models? I like them much better this way. As you said yourself Kpriss “it add more character and authenticity to the actual persons” being their natural selves. Providing that this is the real truth. Pretty, pretty…
It does look authentic. I think. Plus the girls are naturally lovely, so why cover them in layers of makeup if there’s really no need to? I actually think a picture like that is way more effective, advertising – wise, than a fabricated one! It’s way more accessible than a over – filtered / altered photo! People will relate to those image more easily than they do now, right?
