Brittany Rae 30 Jan 2019

If there's one thing those of us who wear makeup know, it's the absolute relief you feel when you get to take it off at the end of a long day. There's nothing quite like not having makeup on.

Being famous comes with some necessary evils, like always having to look done-up. But for these celebs, the no makeup life is one they're happy to explore from time to time.

1. Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz

The queen of Goop can be found rocking the "no makeup makeup" look on her Instagram pretty frequently, but rarely goes entirely barefaced.
