Jessica Simpson's Makeup and Photoshop-Free Cover Shoot

Since her infamous ‘mom jeans’ debacle which caused a major buzz months back, Jessica Simpson has been out to challenge the concept of beauty–and she’s taking her boldest step yet by going totally makeup-free on the cover of Marie Claire. “I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business,” The Price of Beauty star says of what prompted her to show the real her, even air-drying her hair for the shoots. Inspired by her own A Beautiful Me initiative, which encourages women to be comfortable in their skins, Jessica is the first to admit that while she feels confident showing off a totally natural look, it doesn’t mean she’s through with changing up her look. “If I’m in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back. But I also like bed head,” she says. Tell us: What do you think of Jessica as a fresh-faced cover-girl? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

Glad I’m not waking up next to her in the morning.

Sorry, she’s wearing makeup. Albeit just a little but she’s still wearing it. She looks good tho and prefer her with LESS makeup.

She has always been a pretty woman. Now, I am glad that she sees that as well.

I see eyeliner, fake eyelashes then coated by mascara, lip gloss for shiny lips, eyebrow filler, foundation and loose foundation powder, concealer for undereye circle and light peach blush for cheek. How’s that make-up free? At best it’s a fresh-faced style of make up.

I’m a fan of hers, but let’s not lead people on! She’s not make-up free in this photo. Very misleading!

I have alsway thought she is SOOOOOOOOOO much prettier WITHOUT all the make-up! She’s such a cute girl!!

Wonderful. About time some of these lovely ladies show that they don’t need air-brushing, and all of the phony things they use to look gorgeous. What a difference in Oprah in person and on her magazines..such a sham. This is a refreshing idea, and I hope it catches on. After all, we the public are not stupid, to think they all roll out of bed looking drop-dead gorgeous. Now, this is a real role model for my grand daughters and others. I admire her more each day.

She looks great. any guy who says otherwise is bs’ing himself. I love when women don’t wear make up. My wife goes makeup free 98% of the time and I prefer it. Natural beauty is the way to go.

I am so inspired by Jessica- it is about time that all of us women feel good about ourselves.
