Katy Perry, who claims to never leave the house without makeup, apparently doesn’t sleep with a thick layer of foundation and her signature red lips. Husband Russell Brand snapped this photo of a makeup-free Perry in bed (clearly against her will) and then briefly posted it on Twitter. He took it down, but not before gossip blogs everywhere grabbed the image for themselves. How should Katy get revenge? [TooFab] Keep reading »
I met a girl the other night who, I kid you not, claims to wake up before her boyfriend to put on makeup before going back to bed and re-waking-up with him. And she said it as though it ain’t no thang. Best part? She’s been with this dude for three months. Umm, what? For me, date three typically consists of biking or rock climbing, sweat and an utter lack of eyeliner, so I was a tad flabbergasted at the thought of keeping up that charade for months. The Frisky staff has weighed in on the matter — most of us falling somewhere between sleepover one and month two — and we want to know about you, too. So tell us: how long do you go before the new guy sees you sans fards? Keep reading »
Debenhams, a department store in the U.K., has banned airbrushing in their upcoming swimsuit campaign. Pictures like the one above will appear in the store’s windows with marks at places where it might have been altered if airbrushing were involved. We think the model in the picture looks amazing as she is and it’s cool to know that she hasn’t been altered. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
This morning, during the millionth hour of “The Today Show,” Kathie Lee and Hoda, ever on trend, decided to go sans fards
, like so many recent fashion cover models. Apparently, however, the idea came about because Rosie O’Donnell pointed out that she thought Kathie Lee had been looking differently lately, implying she had some cosmetic work done. During the makeup-less segment, Kathie Lee encourages Rosie to look for scars as evidence. Meanwhile, Hoda said she felt liberated by the experience. All of this gave me an idea, one I have not shared with the rest of the staff until just now — someday, in the near future, The Frisky will be run for a day sans fards.
Stay tuned! Keep reading »
Going sans fards is trendy right now, but there are a few fashion ladies who’ve been doing it since long before it was “cool.” T Magazine picked out a few of the coolest makeup-free women in fashion and we wholeheartedly agree with the list. First up — and our favorite — is Kelly Cutrone, PR maven and total badass. Also included were eco-conscious Barneys’ buyer Julie Gilhart, Celine designer Phoebe Philo and a few other natural, hot women. T says Philo pulls off her makeup-free look “by enveloping her face in a cloud of cigarette smoke,” but we’ve got a few suggestions less likely to result in cancer, after the jump.

The photo caption for this image reads: “Jennifer Garner seen out and about with no make-up.” If I looked that good sans fards, I would never not leave the house without makeup. [3/14/10, LA] Keep reading »
