Nicole Richie: I Don't Own Any Makeup

Nicole Richie: Hair is Easier Than Makeup
Kelly Jordan/Startraks

Despite the fact that Nicole Richie always looks perfect on the red carpet, she insists that when it comes to beauty, she’s hopeless.

“I actually don’t know how to put on makeup — at all,” she confesses to “I have to get it done every time I want to wear makeup. I do not know how to wear it at all. It’s so bad.”

“I don’t even own it,” she continues. “I only own under-eye concealer, Maybelline mascara, and an eyelash curler.”

But Richie’s trademark off-duty look — funky separates and strategic oversized sunglasses — is usually punctuated with runway-ready tresses. Why? “I can do my own hair,” she explains.

Nicole Richie needs to stop lying! Who does she think she is fooling?

It takes a lot of make up and money to achieve the “natural” look.

Nicole would be nowhere without Paris Hilton. She is much better looking and also a much nicer person than Nicole.

I don’t know why anyone would hate on Paris but put Nicole on a pedestal.
Paris never produced illegitimate kids to get a guy to marry her. She is also much more successful in her businesses.

Anyways, I like Paris better because she is more real.

Some of you all seem a tad bit jealous. I got what she meant. She can’t put on all that is involved with makeup. There is so much out there. Some people just want to nit pick. Mascara and concealer are hardly makeup.

Nicole ritchie is a natural beauty. Hah! She’s had cosmetic surgery on her face. Just look at her old pictures. I don’t get the point of this story but she obviously does own makeup. Can’t you guys come up with more interesting stories than this?!!

Well I don’t know if I believe that Nicole Richie doesn’t own any makeup unless she has a full time makeup artist living in her home but either way, she always looks fabulous!

Yeah, but the wording is difficult… she first says she doesn’t own any. Any would mean zero. She should of just said “minimal” or something. The title and the article aren’t even accurate.
