When it comes to celebrity photos people generally fall into 2 categories — ones that generally believe that celebs are flawless all the time, and ones that believe it’s all makeup and in real life celebs look nothing like they do on screen. In reality, it’s a bit of both. We compiled a list of pictures of famous Bollywood celebs with and without makeup, so you can take a look and be the judge.

Aishwarya Rai


Aishwarya is one of the most gorgeous women in Bollywood. Even in the first photo, without makeup, you can see that her skin is pretty much flawless and the only difference between the photos is a pop of color.

Jacqueline Fernandez


Honestly, if it wasn’t for the difference in picture quality, you couldn’t see the difference between how Jacqueline looks on these photos. She looks gorgeous even with the horrible lighting and the low quality of the first photo.

Anushka Sharma


Now there’s a huge difference between these two photos, but mostly because in the second one Anushka’s makeup is so heavy it looks like a mask.

Sushmita Sen


Some might say Sushmita looks super pale without makeup, but once again, that’s probably just lighting. Here’s the thing that very few consider when comparing photos with and without makeup.

Alia Bhatt


Alia is a young girl, she’s only 23, so it’s not a surprise that she looks great without makeup. There’s barely any difference between the two photos.

Nargis Fakhri


Are we already halfway done with breaking stereotypes about celebs? Looks like it. Nargis Fakhri’s face looks pretty much the same whether she’s going to the airport or attending a glamorous event.

Ameesha Patel


Ameesha is a pretty lady and there’s no doubt about it. Whether she just got off the plane and is wearing a Smurfs shirt, or walking down the red carpet, she always looks cute.

Kareena Kapoor


Kareena is wearing absolutely no makeup in the first photo and a full face of makeup in the second. Yet, the only big difference I can spot are the dark circles under her eyes. Perhaps she was really tired, or maybe it’s genetic.

Sonam Kapoor


Sonam seems to share Kareena’s problem of dark under-eye circles, but other than that, she looks pretty much the same with and without makeup. What a lucky lady. When you have such a beautiful face to begin with, you don’t really need a lot of makeup.

 Priyanka Chopra


Here’s a side by side comparison of Priyanka Chopra with and without makeup. What do you think? Does she look totally different to you or would you still be able to easily recognize her?

Deepika Padukone


What about Deepika Padukone? Her face looks more tanned and a way more shiny in the first picture, that’s true. But other than that she just looks like the more casual version of herself, compared to the second photo.
