As a guy, I can tell you that it’s always nice when a girl can get away with wearing little or no makeup, and still look just as good as any of those ladies who pile the stuff on. And while most celebs are often afraid of stepping out without being a bit done up for fear of the paparrazi snapping them looking bad, here are 15 stars who don’t need to worry—because they look good even without makeup on. Enjoy our selections!
15. Miley Cyrus
I know, Miley Cyrus might come off as being somewhat of a volatile lady, but she’s also quite gorgeous when she wants to be. While Miley can pull off the red lipstick look with ease, she just goes out sans makeup. Cyrus still flashes good looks.

14. Demi Lovato
This is a shout-out to my cousin, Jeff, who has admitted to adoring singer Demi Lovato. It took some convincing, but after seeing her with and without makeup, I’m all about her now as she’s one of the few stars who can pull off being gorgeous regardless of her wearing any.

13. Rachel Bilson
Back in college, Rachel Bilson might have been our No. 1 lady because of her fresh looks and amazing, well, everything. She was honestly the lone reason any guy actually watched the OC—because she was about as perfect as a girl could be on the show. And she looks just as amazing when stepping out without any makeup on.

12. Courteney Cox
Don’t think for a second that age has slowed down this lady. With or without makeup, Cox looks like the prototypical beautiful woman that every guy—regardless of age—is secretly staring at whenever she’s around them.

11. Jennifer Aniston
Oh weird, Cox’s best friend Jennifer Aniston is just as awesome without makeup? Wouldn’t have guessed that. (Insert sarcasm). Like her buddy, Jen hasn’t slowed down a bit over the years, wearing anything she wants and walking around without makeup and killing it. She may not still be your top crush, but she should be in your Hall of Fame as an all-timer.

Rihanna might be the girl that intimidates every guy because of her look and attitude, but she’s just a sweety at heart—or at least we’d like to think. And although I personally get weak when I see her rockin’ that red lipstick and leather jacket, I could just as easily spend the day strolling down the park with her sans makeup.

9. Olivia Wilde
One of the prettiest ladies on Hollywood, Olivia Wilde can pull off any look she wants thanks to her stunning appearance. Funnyman Jason Sudeikis probably loves seeing her walking around in sweats as every guy does when she’s strutting down the red carpet—because she’s nearly flawless.

8. Josie Maran
One of the most downright flawless ladies on the planet, Josie Maran’s natural look is impossible to duplicate because it’s just a genetic gift from God. The model/actress is one of a few ladies who could probably walk into a photoshoot without prepping for a week and still land the gig. That’s how gorgeous she is.

7. Emma Stone
Not only is the actress hilarious in pretty much every movie she has ever starred in, but when she’s seen without any makeup on, she looks just as good as she does when trying to hide any glare while filming.

6. Jessica Biel
Justin Timberlake is one lucky guy. Not only does he make some amazing music and can get away with pretty much doing anything he wants, but he gets to wake up every morning next to this beautiful lady.

5. Kristin Stewart
She may be a bit flaky when she talks to the press or just comes across as awkward, but actress Kristin Stewart sure does have some natural beauty. It’s no wonder she has been selected as the face of various brands—because she looks amazing.

4. Gwen Stefani
Good god, who would have ever imagined that singer Gwen Stefani would have this kind of staying power? I remember falling head over heels for Stefani back in sixth grade when she first came out with band No Doubt. But now, even at age 44, she still pulls off any look she wants to—including zero makeup—because she’s just naturally gorgeous.

3. Katie Holmes
She hasn’t really been in much lately, but during the late-’90s and early 2000s, millions of high school boys fawned over Katie Holmes. And with good reason—because she looks good. That extends to her dissing the makeup, too. And I’m a fan of it.

2. Taylor Swift
Classic case of a girl who might actually look better without makeup on, country singer/actress Taylor Swift pulls off that girl next door look to perfection. Girl can sing, has style, class and will look just as good in a t-shirt as she would in a form-hugging dress.

1. Emma Watson
Although all of these ladies look incredible without any makeup at all, our No. 1 will always be Emma Watson, who, with our without any foundation, is about as perfect as one can get. Add in that little accent she has and Emma’s a perfect 10 in my book.
