Mila Kunis went makeup free with surprising results

Mila Kunis has always been glamorous, but now she doesn’t need the enhancement of makeup to look absolutely stunning. In the August issue of Glamour, the female actor poses fresh-faced with only serum, eye cream and lip balm (and careful lighting). She still looks amazing – even with her hair tied back.

The caption? “Well, this makes life easy”.

Kunis, who is a mother of a 21-month-old and expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher, has no time for makeup. “I don’t wear makeup. I don’t wash my hair every day. It’s not something that I associate with myself,” she told Glamour. “I commend women who wake up 30, 40 minutes early to put on eyeliner. I think it’s beautiful. I’m just not that person.”

It’s not only makeup Kunis is against – she cites one particularly bad experience with Photoshop that makes her not able to stand the digital manipulation tool. “I hate it,” she said. “There was a company that I did a photo shoot for once that manipulated the photo so much, I was like, ‘that’s not even me’. Like, what’s the point? You wanted my name, and then you wanted the version of me that I’m not. I absolutely hate it”.

This is the latest in the growing trend of celebrities appearing publicly without makeup. Alicia Keys caused a stir when she appeared on the BET red carpet last month without any makeup on. A few days ago Buzzfeed even got on the bandwagon, introducing 6 male guinea pigs to the minimalist ‘no-makeup’ makeup look.

Kunis admits she doesn’t mind a bit of help, though. “Do I sometimes want them to depuff my eyes? Help me out with a little bit of lighting,” she shared. “But do I want them to stretch my legs, thin out my waist, curve my hips, elongate my neck, blah, blah, blah? No.”
