This may be another case of a little bit of makeup possibly being present—it’s glorious what a quick sweep of blush and a quicker swipe of lip gloss can do—but Mad Men star Christina Hendricks doesn’t look like bombshell Joan Holloway ALL the time. And that’s totally fine by us! Bonus points for the gigantic specs.
6. Katy Perry
Remember when this pic of Katy Perry hit the interwebs? Ex-hubby Russell Brand snapped it in bed before subsequently Tweeting out to his eight bajillion followers. Katy wasn’t too pleased, so he quickly took it down—but not before it managed to infiltrate deep in the depths of the World Wide Web, where it will likely remain preserved for all time.
Sans makeup and with natural hair, Beyonce still looks like a superstar!
11. Paz de la Huerta
Because she’s usually busy being a hot mess, it’s easy to forget that Paz de la Huerta is only 27. But look! Look how young and fresh faced and NOT like a hot mess she looks here! Is that amazing or what?
12. Marilyn Manson
Did you have any idea that this is what Marilyn Manson, a.k.a. Brian Hugh Warner, looked like under all that white pancake makeup and panda-like eyeliner? Yeah, me neither. Surprise!
