Barefaced beauties: 9 celebs like Sheila Sim and Dee Hsu who look flawless without makeup
The mere thought of having to go without makeup is enough to fill many of us with total dread. But the celebrity “I woke up like this” selfie is fast becoming a thing, with everyone from local supermodel Sheila Sim to Taiwanese host Dee Hsu rocking the bare-faced look to show off their natural beauty.
Here are some of our favourite bare-faced beauties as well as tips look good sans makeup to inspire you to retire your makeup brushes (for a day at least).
The Taiwanese pop star showed off her radiant skin in a makeup-free selfie before hitting the sack. Her well-maintained complexion does require some work. It seems the baby-faced singer even has a name for her whitening regime, the “whitening triangle”, which involves a rigid skincare routine, exercise and diet. When it comes to skincare, she never fails to include a whitening essence as it will penetrate the deepest into the skin.
She will also use serums in place of masks. If she is filming or on set, she will slap on some sunscreen, whether it’s a sunscreen or makeup base infused with SPF to protect her skin from the sun. To complete the triange, she eats foods loaded with vitamin c and engages in exercises like running and yoga to remove toxins in her body and stimulate skin cell renewal.
As if we weren’t jealous of Shu Qi’s glowing skin, the Chinese actress posted a picture of her without a smidgen of makeup on and her hair undone – and yes, she still looks stunning.
The 41-year-old Chinese actress has just proved that you can rock the natural look at any age. The screen siren knows the importance of hydrating her skin. Instead of using a sheet mask, soak some cotton pads into your toner and apply it on your forehead and cheeks so whatever you apply next absorbs better.
A day without makeup isn’t rare for the Taiwanese singer and mother of two. In this no-makeup selfie, she shows zero signs of undereye bags or jetlag. The secret to her glowing-from-within porcelain skin? Lemon infused water.
Aside from sipping on lemon water, the 41-year-old dimpled singer keeps her skin looking fresh with the aid of skincare products with La Roche-Posay, a French skincare brand that specialises in products for sensitive skin. Her love affair with La Roche-Posay products is well chronicled – she has been spotted with the brand’s makeup remover and intense soothing fluid on social media.
The 37-year-old Hong Kong singer flaunted her natural off-duty beauty style with her fresh and clean skin, perfectly shaped brows and undefined eyes.
To achieve her flawless complexion, try using a clarifying mask to banish breakouts and eliminate blackheads once to three times a week. When her skin is in need of a pick-me-up, the singer turns to the cult classic Glam Glow face masks.
The Hong Kong actress is one of the few people who genuinely look just as good without a scrap of makeup on, or even better! She looked pretty and sunkissed in the snap as the focus was all about her pink, pouty lips.
If you want to get soft, pink and luscious lips like Angelababy, start by applying a thick layer on lip balm on your lips before you go to bed. When you wake up, slough off the dead skin on your lips with a damp tooth brush or wash cloth to reveal moisturised, kissable lips.
The top model and actress enjoyed a laidback afternoon with her adorable niece and embraced her skin just the way it is in this snap. She lives by the inside-out beauty philosophy and maintains her catwalk-worthy radiance by sticking to a fitness routine.
Recently, the model has been staying fit by practicing Pilates.
