Stars can’t go for a Starbucks run, or a quick drive-by at Whole Foods, or a walk of shame back from their backup dancer boytoy’s apartment without paparazzi waiting to catch them. And more often than not, the A-listers are caught looking, well, not their red carpet best. For the past year or so, though, the stars have started beating the photogs at their own game — taking shots of themselves, makeup-free, for all the world to see (and yet, controlling the images with self-editing tools and tons o’filters).
The only thing? Some of the selfies that stars claim to be of themselves, bare-faced, are hardly that. In many cases, an eagle-eyed inspection can reveal concealer, mascara, blush — even eyebrow pencil. Not that there’s anything wrong with a little makeup; we just refuse to stand for anymore faux barefaced claims! Here, we take a look at some of the most talked-about “au naturale” celeb twitpics and Instagram shots, and decided whose real and whose faking it.
