Can You Guess Who This Famous Beauty Is Sans Makeup?
Okay, we LOVE photos of famous beauties like this one, snapped of actress Brooke Shields as she walked about New York City on Sunday afternoon.
What's wrong with this picture?
Absolutely nothing! Brooke Shields at age 47, has NO makeup on that we can see. Not even a little BB cream, which is a fancier, more expensive tinted moisturizer. Not even a little tinted lip balm. Nada. Nothing.
So, what's the point in all of this---to pick on a famous mother-of-two?
No, we actually think it's refreshing to see what most women, even the rich, famous, and very attractive, look like WITHOUT the magic of makeup and the skilled hands of a red carpet pro makeup artist.
We think the talented Brooke Shields has a nice, clear complexion with just a few lines and dark undereye circles that many of us have. At 47, she has those trademark great, full brows and clear, blue eyes.
Could she look better?
Yes. By putting on even minimal makeup, Brooke could look even lovelier walking around NYC.
Should she wear cosmetics in public, because she is super famous and admired for her classic beauty?
YES. But who are we to tell a celebrity how to appear in public.
We thought she would look younger, because she was a famous model, and because MOST female celebrities resort to plastic surgery and/or minimally invasive dermatological procedures to wind back the beauty clock.
Having said all that, it is inspiring to see a strong, talented celebrity not afraid to age naturally in public---not easy to do with a youth-obsessed culture.
