We’re used to seeing Kimmie pull out the very best makeup and hair team to wow readers and sell magazines. But the 34-year-old decided to go makeup-free and natural for her cover shot by Theo Wenner. You’re probably thinking “really, Kim with no makeup?” It’s true. The starlet on had a little moisturizer and lip balm, and her eyelashes were slightly curled. “Theo wanted to show Kim for Vogue España like no one has done before,” said fashion director Belen Antolin. “Just woke up, but really. Not fake ‘I woke up like this’ you see in magazines.”

This is one of the first times we have seen Kardashian publicly without makeup. In the past, Kardashian went with minimal makeup for her Vogue Australia cover. She obviously looks amazing, and we praise her for it. We can imagine that her pregnancy glow helped radiate her skin as well.
Of course, haters are going to hate. The Sydney Morning Herald wrote that Kardashian is as natural as a Barbie. “That is if no make-up includes Botox and fillers, eyelash extensions and permanent eyebrows.”
We get it. Kardashian puts a lot of effort into her looks, but even with all the extras, we imagine it’s still hard for someone as famous as she is and someone who is under scrutiny as much as she is, to go without makeup. It might sound silly, but it’s the world we’re living in. Head over to Vogue España for more.
