Models Without Makeup: Some Sad, Others Pretty
Seeing models without makeup is just as exciting as seeing them tumble on the runway. With retouching continuing to be a hot button issue in the industry, it’s exciting to see some of MyFDB’s favorite models pose makeup-less with messy hair for a change. The following black and white shots were taken by Viva Model Management in celebration of the agency’s “official” launch. The company’s director Natalie Hand explained, “They were shot exactly as they were in person, exactly how they were when they walked through his door. And they looked really beautiful. The blemishes added to their charm. And you could definitely learn something about the model’s real character from the pictures.”
Here we have the adorable Natalia Vodianova, who clearly isn’t as fresh faced as she normally appears, but gorgeous nonetheless.
Up next is Raquel Zimmerman, who appears very tired and nowhere as bright-eyed as she does in her photo shoots.
No surprise here, as mature model Kirsty Hume looks pretty much the same.
I don’t know if it’s the black and white photography or if Laura Blokhina was sad that day, but she just feels far too serious in this shot.
A face full of soft features model Kim Noorda actually appears younger without all the glitz of a hair and makeup team.
I wonder what Maryna Linchuk is hiding by covering her face with her hair? She appears slightly older than she does in photos, but she’s still naturally pretty.
So there you have it…models sans makeup. While the majority are still gorgeous, it’s always fun to see them looking “normal” like us regular folk.
