5. Tanushree Dutta:

Here’s Tanushree Dutta, a fairly well known name in the movies business. She is another example and a not a very charming one at that of an bollywood actress without makeup! She really needs the help of makeup before scorching the screen, what do you think?

9. Kajol:

Take a look at the hazel-eyed actress without and with makeup. While her natural good looks are obvious, she certainly isn’t as flawless as we think her to be on screen. Do you love her in both the looks?

12. Rani Mukerji:

I am a die-hard fan but I would still like to see her with makeup on! Her tired girl next door look certainly isn’t too appealing.

13. Esha Deol:

Here are Esha’s two looks, without and with makeup. She seems to be quite the girl-next-door without makeup on. Pretty in both looks.

We don’t like her much without makeup. What do u say?

16. Juhi Chawla:

A little makeup cannot cause harm for sure. While she doesn’t look too bad, the glamour certainly doesn’t come to her naturally.

17. Preeti Zinta:

Cute and bubbly is not what she looks like in this image without the makeup! This diva needs the touch of makeup to bring out the glam queen.

[ See: More Pictures Of Preity Zinta Without Makeup ]

18. Isha Koppikar:

Pretty most certainly. Seductive, not without makeup for sure!

19. Lara Dutta:

This model turned actress definitely needs the magical touch of makeup!

20. Amrita Arora:

She certainly has good features but doesn’t she look plain without any makeup on?

21. Amisha Patel:

Yeah plain is the word for her too. Makeup certainly brings out the best on her!

[ See: More Pictures Of Amisha Without Makeup ]

22. Dia Mirza:

Makeup or no makeup, her lovely smile and sweet face seem to glow either ways!

23. Madhuri Dixit:

She definitely has a beautiful face but her age is beginning to show, don’t you think?

24. Rekha:

Oh the only thinking tarnishing this gorgeous face is the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. In her younger days, makeup or no makeup, she most definitely would have been stunning!

25. Kim Sharma:

Lovely skin, almost flawless don’t you think? She is certainly good looking even without makeup. All she needs it for is make the feature of her choice stand out!

26. Mugdha Godse:

Here is one of the heroines without makeup that we most definitely do not like.

27. Rakhi Sawant:

All that botox certainly seems to have done some good for her. Even without makeup she  doesn’t look too bad.

28. Sonam kapoor:

You don’t even recognize her do you?

29. Anushka Sharma:

She looks almost the same! Take a guess! which one does she have makeup on and in which one she doesn’t!

30. Malaika Arora Khan:

Now she is definitely a hot mom! She looks graceful and sophisticated in her look without makeup. And when she wants to bring the sexy out, she whips out her makeup kit!

After seeing these heroines without makeup, we realize how magical the touch of makeup can be in transforming someone from the girl-next-door to a diva. Certainly Bollywood celebs take the help of some of the best makeup artists to appear so beautiful onscreen. Then again, some are naturally beautiful. But it is true that all of them are supremely talented which is why they are what they are today!

            I think Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra And Anushka Sharma are looking beautiful and they have natural beauty …….

          2. Yasir Ali

    Oh my god…..they all look so perfect on screen that they move us to think that most of us are ugly ducklings! But most of them look so much like the rest of us without any makeup. No wonder they never step out in front of the public without it! Thanks oindrila…this certainly shows me that i am not too far away from being glam queen if i want to!

    1. oindy

      I did not add those pictures in the article, they were added by the editing team! But yes, rekha did show up in public like this!

  2. oindy

    Some of it is done by me and some by the team. Unfortunately the topic was assigned to me, what can be done! Sorry you find it rude!

  3. nits

    Most of them do have make up. May be not the dramatic on screen make up. But they do ve founfation, light lipstick, kajal etc…
    Also i think you are somewhat biased towards fair skined celebs compared to dusky beauties. I think bips looks great with minmal make up.

  4. Janki

    Ok you guys totally picked the worst pictures of them when they’re without makeup… Like ok Juhi and Preeti have their eyes closed, which doesn’t clearly portray them without makeup. And then again, in your commentary of Amisha Patel and Amrita Arora, you stated that they look “plain” without makeup. Way to state the obvious! Everyone looks “plain” without makeup!

  5. QueenB

    not a good study .. u used pixeleted snaps for Madhuri n Rekha .. Juhi n Preeti’s snap quality isn’t good either ..in both of Anushka’s snap she has her make up on n.. same goes for Deepika .. Sonam looks pretty even without makeup .. at least in ds snap .. n u put the most tired snap of Bebo though she managed to look good n Vidya is a pleasure to eyes even without make up..

  6. Kitty

    This lot is NOTHING! If you want UGLY without airbrushing to Fug and make up .. Look no further than SUPER FAMOUS Shweta bachchan! Hurl!

    1. v

      I agree. We are so ready to pounce on a female and shame her for not looking like an airbrushed goddess at all times of the day. Show me how many men wear makeup. Since we’re going for the constant air brush effect….why only women? Why the double standard?

  7. cupquakes

    thank god for who ever invented MAKEUP! cuz I think celebrities wouldn’t even exist without it… without the fake lashes and the contouring, and the over linnings and the layers and layers of foundation, how the hell would they get their confidence!! THEY’LL WILL BURN OUR EYES!!!!!!

  8. Jade

    I’m sorry, but most of the “without make-up” images are truly not! They almost all have make-up on! The title should have been: ” High quality/Photoshopped pictures and just plain picture taken with a crappy camera”. That would have been more accurate! Common, we aren’t that stupid!

  9. v

    This is actually a disgusting article. All women are beautiful in their own way. Even the adds on the side of the article were repulsive ‘Buy skin brightening cremes here’. I’m not Indian, but it is terrible that this part of the culture is trying so hard to portray a more ‘westernized’ look. How about you be yourselves. Dark is just as beautiful as light. Hazel is just as beautiful as dark brown. This mental slavery you have bounded yourself to needs to stop.

  10. Aidah

    There is a certain kind of make up that looks good with a certain kind of clothes. These actresses are public figure and they have to dress up in a certain way. We all end up painting our faces when we dress up for weddings and such occasions. And its a fact that anyone with dark circles and dark lips have to put an extra effort to conceal their flaws – the reason could be anything whether its your work round the clock or its your health not very perfect. we all go through the same conflict. and may be its not the picture perfect faces but what you see in real is drastically different of what you see in pictures – sometimes faces with flaws look more appealing in person as we as human see things more as overall package than micro scoping minute details in person.

  11. arianna

    I think they all look best without any makeup. Just confident women who are secure in their self-worth. Make-up and beauty products can be fun and certainly can add to an actress or celebrity character portrayal….but the way this article is written…not so much…..

    1. Stacy Reece

      your looking like a bitch.(BTW thats worst than a fuckin bitch). No one person knows your damn name and your definitely not famous, so think twice before being judgmental. You little whore. ps: im pretty sure youre not regina george. Only she has the right to be mean.

  12. Kate

    See, the thing is, they are almost all wearing make-up in all the photos. There are only a few in that article where they are truly wearing no make-up. They have just put on minimal coverage and haven’t been photoshopped and airbrushed for a press photo. You can tell as well by the sometimes vast difference in skin colour/tone between the two photos.

  13. mrsmakeup

    I like this article, it shows our daughters that even celebs need a little help and it shows them not to strive to look like them because the end of the day they dont look like what they appear. That is the power of air brushing and a team of beauty experts from head to toe.

  14. melanie sarah

    aiswarya is the best…Dia Mirza is also preety.i think aiswarya,Dia mirza,Bipasha Basu,Depika Padukone,Rani mukerji looks beautiful with and without makeup.but i think Isha gopikar looks better without make up………..

  15. Yashmi

    Can’t believe it!!! Aishwarya is looking damn gorgeous even without makeup. I have never seen her off the makeup, but after seeing these pictures i fell in love with her all over again. Thanks for sharing this post.

  16. Bananita

    I just wanted to say that skin tone has nothing to do with beauty (reading the descriptions seems like they favor lighter skin), and of course they look prettier with the makeup, everybody does!! That’s is why we wear it. I personally find these ladies gorgeous with or without makeup, since I don’t know their personalities.

  17. Amit Guha

    Oh! really. What you done mam is great. Some heroines look beautiful with makeup and their fans die for them, but you have shown without makeup most of them are most ordinary. But, you have kept the most beautiful actress out of the list is Jaya Prada. She in her earlier years, were very beautiful. She used to get some roles less significant than other heroines, due manipulation of some south heroines. But, she used to look unique even when she cried. So, kindly try to include her in next blog. Thanx a lot.

  18. chandan

    Really you did a good job by making it clear to the young generation that real life hero’s are different and we should care those real actors and actresses.

  19. adez

    are these actresses bleaching?? or is it just the bollywood industry hating dark skin so they make them look white in pictures…if you look at image 26 …THATS SUCH A DARKskinned woman..how come shes so white in the makeup picture?

  20. Truth

    First of all lets differentiate between no-makeup and nude-makeup (minimal), and with-makeup and airbrushed pics. Most of the pics posted are of actresses with nude-makeup or natural makeup vs their airbrushed images. That makes a huge difference.

  21. Harsha

    It’s so sad to see that some people want to ‘burn their eyes’ after looking at these pictures. Is it really so bad to see these women look like normal people for a change? All of them even look prettier than the average woman with or without makeup. And some of these are really mean ‘this is one actress without makeup we never want to see’ Really? The moment the real woman peeks through the cover you never want to see her?
    ‘This is what a heroine without makeup should be like!’ Honestly, a real heroine could look like a fucking potato and it wouldn’t matter.

    Please get over these unrealistic airbrushed standards of beauty and go look in a mirror, not that it should matter, but chances are you look worse than any of these women.
    This article really is crap and promotes the idea that women look good only with makeup and that is such bullshit.

  22. neema

    This post is absolute nonsense…. to start with half the pictures that claim they are pictures “without makeup” are certainly not without makeup. e.g Kareena kapoor is blatantly wearing foundation in both images and I can see aishwariya’s blusher from a mile away in the no make up picture. So in a nutshell this is not a fair comparison to start with.

    Moving on secondly more than half these women are looking just as pretty without the three layers of caked makeup on their faces. By suggesting makeup is the way forward for them this post is suggesting that normal women should refrain from stepping outside the house without make up and looking normal because it does not fit with the unrealistic standards of beauty hollywood and bollywood is setting for present generations.

  23. Anjali

    Wow this is a horrible and spiteful post.

    Like everyone’s said before me, firstly the comparison is unfair. Forget that you have taken some random caught unawares mid-sentence, right after a long day in the sun/gym picture for one actress and another fresh from the bath actually *with* make-up for another? How do you have the audacity to actually make a post that compares people, pitting their natural beauty against cosmetic looks?

    What do you mean by things like “certainly never want to see her without make-up”, and “most definitely do not like”? Look at you, elitist pig, sitting behind your computer screen and passing judgement at perfectly nice people who are just pursuing their dreams. It’s a horrible, horrible thing to do, and it’s people like you who spread seeds of venomous hatred and judgement that causes others to stop believing in the good of humanity.

    Just because someone chooses to be in the public eye as an actress, musician or any eminent personality, doesn’t mean they’re handing you the right to judge and criticize their every move. And if they say even one negative thing about anything or anyone, even if it’s completely justified, you make a big deal out of it and throw huge hissy fits.

    If you don’t want to see them without make-up, who’s asking you to dig out pictures of them from their personal lives, Just don’t fucking look.

  24. kkp1066

    Seems like wearing and removing such heavy eye makeup has taken a toll on the delicate skin around the eyes of many of the women.

  25. leila habib

    all looks beautiful without makeup. some even better. funny enough its the picture with the darkest skin their is seen as the bad looking and then they are beautiful when they look white on the edited image and the ones that are white in both are the ones beautiful in both of the pictures after you.

  26. fairy

    Most of the women are wearing make up even in the ‘before make up’ pics.. and ur comments are plain rude and degradatory.. “here’s a face we do not wanna see w/o make up”, really?
    Go get a life.
