The 'Marie Claire' Jessica Simpson cover for the magazine's May 2010 issue shows the pop starlet without a trace of makeup. Simpson insisted that the photos for the magazine not get retouched either, so fans could view her true self.

She took this opportunity to go bare-faced for the camera to endorse her 'Beautiful Me' initiative, a project that encourages other women to embrace their bodies and feel confident in their own skin.

Hopefully these courageous images of makeup-less Ms. Simpson will encourage other women to feel just as fearless as the starlet herself--to face the world without any foundation and blush. Stats for Makeup-Free Covers Trending: Older & Warm
