Jennifer Hawkins without makeup in Marie Claire

Would You Pose Without Makeup?

This is pretty cool: Former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins is on the cover of Australian Marie Claire, and she's not wearing any makeup. Okay, okay, so she's had the benefit of professional Photoshopping, but still: How often does this happen, and how many pageant queens would say that such an act is "no big deal"?

She's a braver soul than I am, that's for sure. If I know I'm getting my picture taken, I definitely put on a little mascara and tinted moisturizer. (Without it, I look about as alluring as Uncle Fester.) So I'm wondering: If you were in Jennifer Hawkins' place, would you want to pose without makeup?

If I was in the position she is, where little girls and teenager as well as adult women look up to me as some type of role model... I think it's brave and cool that she did that. It's refreshing to see a real, fresh faced beauty on the cover of a magazine. I love makeup and beauty products with all the wonderful things they can do but I think she looks amazing, young and sweet without all her pagentry "big hair" "toothy smile" "tiara wearing" "show makeup" gunk. Yeah she's photoshopped... maybe someday it'll be cool to actually bare all- even cowlicks, non-dewey skin and flat chests:)

I sometimes model for my husbands company. When he doesn't give me enough notice I have to pose without any makeup.

It just looks like she's wearing nude makeup. What's the point of wearing no makeup if you're just going to get photoshopped?

Well I'd definately pose with no makeup before posing with no clothes, lmao!!! There are some things photoshop just can't fix. ;D

Absolutely. I seem to always find fault with photos where I am wearing make-up. Things like my liner isn't even or lashes are sticking or my blush looks slightly uneven to me. Au natural I see me, I can't complain.

In my opinion, being digitally enhanced doesn't even count as "make up free". weather they're making you up with real make up or digital effects, you're still being made up.

No way. I look terrible without makeup, maybe if I had the money to get weekly facials and use expensive potions on my face every day.

I never wear make-up and all the pictures I am not wearing make-up. Maybe I should change that view.

If I were the type to land the cover of a magazine (i.e. a celebrity of some sort), I'd like to do it, if only to send a healthy message about self-image. I'm not saying it would look the best, but it's the thought that counts. xP

Some people look good without makeup. I have crappy skin, so I'm not one of them. I would definitely not do this.

I don't wear a ton of makeup but I don't EVER leave the house without eyeliner and mascara on. I think most 99% of people irregardless of what they think about themselves look better with makeup. I know people who say they don't need it and they look fine, but they would look so much better with it. Why would you not want to look better if it only takes like 10 minutes at most? Definitely in with photo shop.

Some girls are naturally beautiful without makeup. I'm definitely not one of them. I'd pose if I had to, but I'd be in a really bad mood about it! :P

i would - but then again i really don't wear makeup normally - so it's not like it would be a big difference. You also have to remember that the people who like you most are going to see you when you roll out of bed and have nothing on - so it's ok to be like that -

if i looked like her i would in an instant lol but well yea why not-while make up definitely helps my appearance- i tend to go casual on it a lot anyways so i'd go with none- i just wouldn't look as good as her!

No way!!! I feel so naked when I go to do my grocery shopping on my day off and I don't wear make-up!!! I'm really pale and I tend to look like I've been dead for a week without make-up!!!!

I never wear makeup so I'm not used to seeing myself -with- makeup on. But wearing no makeup does make your face look washed out, especially for a magazine cover.

I don't see how this is all that remarkable. Show me a picture of her beautiful face without Photoshop and maybe I'll be impressed.

Yes; I'm not perfect and my skin has flaws right now however I would still do it to show others that you need to have confidence in yourself!
