Celebrities Without Makeup: Take 2

Remember last year when I asked you about how – if at all – seeing celebrities without makeup affects the way you feel about your own natural appearance?

Answers varied from “No” to “It’s interesting to see a celebrity without makeup” to “If I don’t wear makeup, I look awful!”

Well, now that Shine over at Yahoo! has published a slew of new pictures of celebrities without makeup, I thought it’d be interesting to revisit that question.

The collection shows celebs without makeup from a variety of age groups, including some of today’s youngest stars like Kristen Stewart and Amanda Seyfried; a few in-between stars like Katie Holmes, Kate Winslet, and Molly Sims; and a even more mature celebs such as Madonna.

So, for those of you who weren’t around last time or who’ve maybe developed a different opinion since then (or, since seeing these new pictures!), I ask again:

Does seeing pictures of celebrities without makeup affect your feelings about your own looks, sans cosmetics? Do you tend to lighten up or give yourself a break when you see images of some of the most beautiful celebs looking “normal”?
