Jessica Simpson Covers 'Marie Claire' May 2010 -- Without Makeup!

Jessica Simpson shows off her fresh face on the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s May 2010 issue!

“I don’t have anything to prove anymore,” the 29-year-old singer shared. “What other people think of me is not my business.”

Jess, who went without makeup and unretouched, is starting a new initiative called “A Beautiful Me,” which encourages young women to feel comfortable in their own skin and love themselves for who they are!

“A Beautiful Me” will launch after her VH1 show, The Price of Beauty, finishes its run next month.

    I think she looks really lovely here and she’s awesome for doing this :) She deserves a little more credit, she’s a good person.

  • tal

    nice =)

  • mikemiller1000

    She looks… great! Much, much better than I ever would’ve expected.

  • ++Logan++

    She is one of those girls that look 1000 times better without make up because it shows off their natural youthful beauty. She has a sweet, soft, feminine face.

  • Tina

    It looks like she kept her hair extension in and where are the blue veins on her breast???D-List pop star A-List shoe salesman C-list Reality Star.

  • Jessica

    Who cares about what this Whore has to say.

  • idani

    She definitely has some eye liner on. Whether it is the tattooed eyeliner or the make up, not sure. But if you look at candids paps have shot of her with no make up her eyes are not as defined. Her lashes either have extensions or she is using that med for glaucoma to grow them.

    This is not au natural.

  • Infamous

    I think she looks good!

  • mmm

    She looks great, but it is not all natural. I really don’t like the “no make-up” photos on celebs because they always have some makeup on. I want to see what they really look like.

  • Denise

    She looks better without much makeup.

  • melody

    without makeup! REALLY? This is a joke or what?
    Thanks photoshop.

  • Michelle MacNeily

    Yeah her skin looks really good, which makes me reconsider buying Proactiv :)

  • Lisajane

    Sorry not falling for it! I see plenty of makeup, the blusher and eyeliner are the most obvious. I also believe there is eye shadow and lip gloss. I’m willing to bet my house that she is wearing a full face of make up here, its the natural look yes and she is beautiful yes, but she IS wearing make up. Fact.

  • yo sista

    No make up? yeah right…..

  • Lisajane

    lol, I just looked at the second pic, OK this is just funny, how dump do they think we are? In the second pic the mascara and lipgloss are as clear as day!

  • Rocky


    You may not, but if she can help young girls and woman then it’s all good. Calling people names is not a cool thing either. Maybe you should learn a thing or two about not dissing people you don’t know.

  • Rocky


    Mascara and lipgloss are no biggies. I think all that glob makeup is what they’re trying to get across.

  • A

    I won’t deny that she’s beautiful with minimal makeup, and better that way too! But please, don’t say “no makeup” and then have on eyelash extensions, mascara, eyeliner, light foundation, blush, etc. You can clearly see it all in the photo. Do they think we’re stupid? Maybe someone would take her seriously if she really did take the photo with NO makeup.

  • Lisajane

    @Rocky: Yeah, and what about the rest? Sorry but I believe she is wearing a full face of make up in both those pics.

  • LMM

    she looks cute, but there is no way she doesn’t have mascara on in these pics.

  • Jessica

    Jessica is not the poster woman for having self esteem now is she?
    Everyone knows Jessica DOES care about what people are saying about her even it she denies it.

    She LIVES for the attention.

  • http://JUSTJARED ithink

    Jess, I think you are beautiful and talented. I am very proud of the strenght that you have shown against all of the prejudice and bias insults that have been hurled at you. You are fighting to maintain your sanity and pride and for that I truely admire you. There are a lot of heartless people in the world and that is their problem–Let them own it. Bless you.

  • nobama

    yawn. blah blah blah. sureeeeeeeee no “make-up” to “touch up”… but tons of photoshopping! how the hEll is this girl relevant?

  • Bobbie


  • natalie

    Agreed. This is NOT no make-up. Yes, she looks a little more “au naturel” but if she doesn’t have mascara on, she went and got her eye lashes and lids tinted.

  • Jessica


    I have the right to voice my opinion just like everyone else on this board.

  • Kate

    I have to agree with all who write she has on makeup. I don’t have anything against Jessica Simpson, but couldn’t these magazines tell the truth!! This is called the “no-makeup look”, but makeup is definitely applied.

    They should write that she has on about half the amount of makeup she regularly wears. Definitely mascara, tinted moisturizer, bronzer, blush, and lipgloss. Oh yeah, and she had just been for a mystic tan and has hair extensions. Not natural.

    All that being said, she does look much better with less makeup.

  • Ronda

    I like Jessica a lot. She’s funny, beautiful and a bit….okay maybe a lot goofy at times but likable just the same IMO.

    ***Oops sorry didn’t mean to post the same comment thrice***

  • rollingstone

    Its obvious that she’s wearing a bit of make-up but thats not the point. they havent made her look perfect or fake. she looks natural and she did it to stand up for us women and all you are doing is going against her…?? So insensitive.
    GO JESS!

  • adrienne

    hardly make up free…shes clearly wearing some mascara etc

  • Lisajane

    @rollingstone: Personally I’m not going against her at all. I said she looks beautiful because she is. It’s Marie Claire that printed the article, its them who are treating us like fools. Therefor any anger you sense from my posts are directed toward Marie Claire, not Jess.

  • Nicole

    Even if she is wearing a little bit of make-up in this pic, watch her show newlyweds and there are plenty of times when she walks around not wearing make-up and looks gorgeous!!! So everybody who is making comments about her wearing mascara is just jealous because she is one of the few celebrities who are naturally beautiful.

  • Barbie

    Hmmm…looks like she is wearing some eye make up….at least she looks a little more “natural”…very pretty!

  • edna

    Who cares about seeing people without make-up, what can be gained by that? She looks pale. I can’t live without make up, I mean eyeshadows, eye liner, lipstick, mascara, the whole thing! The only thing I don’t need much is foundation, only a little bit under my eyes, but that’s it! I love make-up and never want to be natural!!! So, please don’t try to sell me the no make-up bs!

  • bobbi

    Great message to send out but once again, false advertising. Her skin moles have been touched up as well as much minutaie of the cover shot.

    Too bad.

  • zzzz

    Yeah, I see the liner, the lashes, the gloss, the blush, and I think MC underestimated Jesica’s beauty. Anyone who’s seen a pic of her w/o ANY makeup knows this girl is cover material without it. I wish these mags wouldn’t underestimate the public’s intelligence, either, and tell blatant lies. MC has also done Jessica a disservice, in her quest for acceptance of one’s natural beauty.

  • miapocca

    she is wearing makeup and her hair is DONE..i think was they are trying to say is that she is wearing an au naturel look-up which a lot of stars do but still involves makeup..just not the plastered on look the kardashians show off everyday

  • lj

    Well, she doesn’t look orange like she used to. Why does she look gray in the second photo? I stopped liking her a long time ago. What else can she do for a magazine cover? Her career is nil.

  • Deborah

    Is it possible she has photos in the mag without makeup on, but the cover photo is not the case? I love Jessica, and everything she is doing, but she obviously does have makeup on in this cover photo. Blush, eyeliner, shadow. I’ve seen her with less makeup on on her new show, she still looks beautiful. But you can tell she does have eye makeup on here.

  • shaar

    She so wearing makeup! Definitely has eyeliner and mascara on – just compare to shots of her coming from the gym and you’ll see the difference

  • shaar


    Thought I’d add that she does look good in the post gym pictures where she is truly without makeup. her skin looked GREAT in them, I’m envious!

  • jennie

    she is actually a natural beauty – i’ve seen her sans makeup in other candid pics and she always looks much better than with gobs of stuff on

  • lindsay lohan

    amazing!!! love this cover

  • lexy hates bilson

    No make-up but it doesn’t say NO PHOTOSHOP!! What will her and Pimp Daddy Joe do next for publicity – sex dolls and videos starring Jessica??

  • Divine Goddess

    She is wearing makeup, but it is minimal and there prob is a little retouching. Regardless, she is a beautiful woman!

  • Magnion

    Jessica is so beautiful, she look her best without makeup. she is one of the few who looks great whithout out makeup. Compare her with Britney without makeup/Photo OP who looks like a 80yo woman.

  • xxx

    She is wearing make up.. :(
