What your favourite SA celebs look like without makeup

Tinashe Venge

South Africa’s celebrities never skip a beat when it comes to looking ‘on fleek’, and a lot of it has to do with the makeup they choose to rock.

But once they are out of the spotlight, they like to remind us that they are still human underneath the cosmetics, and a lot of our favourites are not shy to show off their natural faces.

These women love showing off their natural beauty and we are all for it.


Lady Skolopad recently posed for a super natural selfie to show many of her fans what she looks like without makeup.

Minnie likes to tease a natural selfie from time to time. Though her job requires her to look ‘perfect’ as often as possible, she’s never afraid to keep it real.

Yup, even your girl B is not afraid to walk out the house without her make-up … and we love her for it!

Nandi Madida has always been on team natural; her occasional makeup-free selfies are further evidence of this.


Local singer, Moneoa inspired us with a touching post that revealed how afraid she has always been about sharing her makeup-free face.

I've always been afraid to post pictures of myself without makeup on because I hated my nose, I was embarrassed by my gapped tooth and I had an acne problem. It caused a lot of scarring and abrasion on my face. Throughout high school, I kinda thought I was ugly. I used to obsess over pretty girls with beautiful skin,small pointy noses and pretty teeth, Lol. I literally used to stalk them on Facebook, then I'd stand in the mirror and cover my nose and cheeks, imagining what I'd look like if I had features like theirs. Well, my skin has improved now thanks to a few acne treatments. However, It still took a lot for me to post this because I’m still self conscious about it. but for the first time in a long time… It’s okay. I feel good about my face. I woke up one day and felt empowered. It must have been God because I have no explanation for it. I looked in the mirror with my flawed skin, flat nose and gapped tooth and said "Beyoncé is that you?". Lol. Weirdly enough, people started complimenting my skin thereafter. Go figure.????????‍♀️ I'm not posting this to fish for compliments. I want to show young people that beauty isn't determined by the outward appearance that is justified by society. Not everyone with perfect skin, perfect teeth and a perfect nose is pretty. There a gorgeous people out there with buck teeth, pimples, flat noses, long chins, fat cheeks, huge foreheads and more. We get caught up in the whims of social standards, instead of creating our own trends, boosting authentic perceptions of what they should be. The people that have changed the world didn't accomplish that by adjusting themselves to fit into it. They embraced their own authentic qualities and in doing so, made the world adjust to them. No makeup, No filter. Feeling beautiful.❤️
