Frances McDormand Went Sans Fards On The Cover Of Vogue

December 10, 2020 / Posted by:

Frances McDormand has never been into the whole Hollywood glam scene. In 2019 she wore Birkenstocks to the Oscars. The year before she picked up her Independent Spirit Award in PJs. And at 63, her face is seemingly free of fillers, Botox, Restalyne, and whatever else the cat people of Hollywood are injecting under their skin (pudding?). So color me unsurprised when Frances went sans fards for the cover of Vogue’s January issue. Well, at least she appears makeup-free. Someone is still credited for doing her hair and makeup. What a cakewalk gig that musta been.

Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks She’s A Little Bit Of A Tomboy Because She’s Not Totally Into Makeup 

April 28, 2020 / Posted by:

Gwyneth Paltrow is multi-faceted. She’s a feminist mogul who can fill a room with the smell of her vagina and bring out the snob in people. And she’s also a tomboy! While talking to People magazine for their Beautiful Issue, Goopy says that she loves going “makeup-free,” which she’s made part of her brand. And according to Gwyneth, that makes her a little bit of a tomboy.

Open Post: Hosted By Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Makeup Free” Celebrity Dinner Party

February 20, 2020 / Posted by:

Entertainment Tonight says that Gwyneth Paltrow decided to scroll through her cleric-cleansed diamond rolodex and find the numbers of her favorite celebrity girlfriends. She then called them over for an “intimate” dinner featuring professional photography. But there was a catch: They had to come SANS FARDS! Leave the makeup at home, ladies! Gwyneth wanted to see the real you! And let me tell you, these women are definitely pulling off the no-makeup makeup look, but ain’t none of them make-up free.

Alicia Keys Went SANS FARDS(ish) Again Last Night

August 29, 2016 / Posted by:

MTV was really taking a risk by having everyone walk into the VMAs on a white carpet instead of a red one. It was an award show shot in HD, which means it wasn’t a shock to see some people strolling in with their faces covered in a 1/4 inch thick layer of foundation, concealer, powder, the shadow from 6 Morphe eye palettes, 18oz of lipstick, and an entire bottle of setting spray. There’s no way MTV would have gotten their damage deposit back if someone like Kim Kardashian were to trip and land face-first on that carpet. If Kim left a makeup imprint of her face on that carpet, you know the first thing she would have done was had it sent to her mom’s house with a note that said: “Possible $$$ opportunity. Call the rug from Aladdin and set up a camera.

Thankfully MTV didn’t have to worry about any of that when Alicia Keys hit the white carpet, because her face was au naturel….kind of.

Mila Kunis Kind Of Joins The Ranks Of The SANS FARDS Army

July 6, 2016 / Posted by:

The latest issue of Glamour features Mila Kunis saying “bye, bitch” to, as the English call it, slap. For us Americans, that’s makeup. I personally don’t wear makeup, but it’s six billion degrees with 500% humidity today in New York, so I’m going to point every woman I see wearing makeup to the newsstand because there’s no reason to suffer through this heat with a full face.

The sans fards selling point is a bit of a wash in the issue itself. Mila is done up for the cover and inside spread, but she’s working an Alicia Keys-approved #nomakeup look on the back cover. There’s also an “undone-beauty guide” in the magazine. Which is kind of like your parents promising you Six Flags and then taking you to Rye Playland, aka LIES. But they do let Mila push her “I’m normal and chill” schtick.

Alicia Keys Went SANS FARDS On The BET Awards Red Carpet

June 27, 2016 / Posted by:

During a recent Lenny Letter essay titled Time to Uncover, Alicia Keys wrote about how she was taking a break from makeup because she didn’t “want to cover up anymore.” Alicia is clearly very serious about the whole #nomakeup thing, because last night she sashayed onto the red carpet of the BET Awards in a face covered in nothing.

Alicia is one of the very lucky few who can do #nomakeup and still look like a human person. Her skin/eyes/mouth/eyebrows all look like what they’re supposed to. When I do no makeup, I look like something from a remake of Eraserhead by Harmony Korine. My mouth looks like a Biggest Loser before-and after of an awkward pink slug. My eyes like two puffy slits with creepy little see-through lashes. The two patchy hairlike skidmarks above my eyes that can barely be classified as eyebrows (my eyebrows truly bring shame to the Dlisted family). So, good for you for going without makeup, Alicia. And if she really wants to make it a permanent thing, I would volunteer to take any and all makeup she decides to get rid of. I very clearly need it.

Alicia also carried the low-maintenance theme into her ensemble as well.
