What’s our obsession with “makeup free”?

What’s our obsession with “makeup free”?


Adele is on the cover of Rolling Stone’s newest issue, and she looks amazing. She sports a much more natural look, complete with neutral makeup, a bathrobe and wet hair.

Media outlets, however, have already begun to label Adele as “makeup free.” Rolling Stone nor Adele have made the claim.

First of all, she’s not, but the real question here is: who cares?

I can’t help but think the only reason media outlets, and honestly probably the females behind them, print the idea of someone being “makeup free” is because they think we as readers can’t resist seeing a celebrity so stripped down… but is it true?

Are we really that fascinated by someone who’s “makeup free,” and if so, why?

Let me know what you think in the comments below.
