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

She and her photographer couldn’t feel that confident in how she looks without makeup, or they wouldn’t have covered up her face with all that hair!

It’s very sad that even with all that she has been put through because of the “mom jeans” situation and with all the effort she’s shown in her show to demonstrate to people how hard it is for women tho show their real selves she needs to put a bit of makeup on a “photo shop and make up FREE session”. You can only see a headshot, not a full body image and she is wearing makeup, it’s obvious! So, I don’t think she’s matured at all or accepted herself just as she is. She’s cheating us viewers and herself.
