20 Times Reality TV Stars Ditched the Makeup But Still Looked Flawless

No glam squad? No problem.

Reality TV stars are typically glam AF–you know, when they’re not wasting alcohol on petty fights. But sometimes even Kim Kardashian gets the urge to let ~loose~, ditch the pounds and pounds of makeup and let her (natural) freak flag fly. The crazy part, though, is she still looks infinitely better than us plebeians with no beat face. It’s not fair. She’s a martian.

And Lady Kardashian is not the only small screen queen who looks sensational sans Sephora. Everyone from VH1’s K.Michelle to New York housewife Sonja Morgan can rock the hell out of a naked face. Take cues, ladies (and dudes) of Earth. You don’t need makeup to set those thirst traps–just a good Botox injection.
