Lady Gaga is a true chameleon. She’s transformed her look numerous times while building her award-winning singing and acting career. I mean, one moment she’s in a red carpet gown with full glam, then a rocker no-pants ensemble, and the next free and clear of everything with a totally makeup-free look. No matter what, she tends to look absolutely fierce, though. To prove it, take a look at her best #nomakeup snaps from over the years.
1. Pre-Oscar Sparkle
Before she glammed up for the Academy Awards (and added some precious hardware to her collection), the actress shared a towel- and diamond-clad photo to Instagram. The iconic Tiffany diamond was more than enough to light up the frame, no makeup needed.
2. Au Natural In A Star Is Born
When Lady Gaga did her screen test for A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper famously told her to wipe all her makeup off, LA Times reported. As a result, scenes of the award-winning film had Lady Gaga without any makeup whatsoever. That allowed her natural beauty and strong vocals to get all the attention.
3. Makeup-Free Meditation
Though dimly lit, Lady Gaga looks radiant in her side-by-side selfies snuggled in what looks like her bed. The singer also shared how meditation helps her mental health, but held back clues to her skin perfection.
4. Fresh-faced Dreams
Lady Gaga shared a note of gratitude along with a gorgeous selfie, complete with her flawless complexion showing through. “What I have realized is that my true life dream above all things was to spread peace and love as far as possible through music,” she wrote in the caption.
5. Gorgeous At The Grocery Store
The superstar shared a totally relatable photo while running an errand. There’s a meat counter in the background, and she’s dressed in casual clothes. Her hair is thrown up in a topknot and her complexion is totally clear and utterly flawless.
6. Glowing Nine To Five
Lady Gaga snapped a glowing selfie after a day working on set. Who needs highlighter when you have cheekbones like that?
7. Celebratory Selfie
The singer took a moment to send love to her fans (a.k.a her Little Monsters), and include them in her celebration of her Super Bowl halftime performance. She looked cozy and all-natural in her robed selfie.
8. Product-free Promotion
Counting down to the release of her album release Joanne, Lady Gaga posted a morning snap with her J coffee mug. She’s wearing a hat and gold earrings but not a drop of makeup.
9. Singing On The Road
Lady Gaga belts out Sinner’s Prayer, from her Joanne album, while driving along the coast. The close-up video shows only her bright eyes and not a bit of makeup anywhere near them.
10. Thanksgiving Dinner
Lady Gaga shared a selfie from the kitchen during Thanksgiving. Her makeup-free skin looked as good as the scrumptious feast around her.
