For most of us, glitz and glam have been put on hold during this time.
It has been significantly different from the pre-COVID world, where fun parties and other social affairs were held here and there, giving us a reason to look every inch the chic.
Now, in the time of pandemic, most events have turned either intimate or virtual. Some days, sure, we’d have time to get dolled up with bold eyeshadow and red lipstick. Most times, however, we’d opt to skip our usual beauty routine and let our skin breathe—and that is just as empowering.
Take it from beach babe Nadine Lustre, whose snap recently went viral for her barefaced look. It’s such a refreshing sight, don’t you think? She looks gorgeous in striking makeup, but she undeniably does so, too, au naturel.

From beauty queens like Catriona Gray to celebrities like Kathryn Bernardo, here they are in their simplest looks—relatable, unairbrushed, glowing.
