Lauren Conrad is a classic California girl, with her blonde, All-American beauty. She doesn't usually spackle her face with cosmetics, so this shot of the reality star and young adult autobiographical fiction author without makeup isn't much different than LC with makeup.

This image was snapped at JFK Airport in 2010. It's as though LC's nerdy black glasses replace eye makeup. What a trend -- an accessory-as-makeup. Even with a plain face, LC doesn't sacrifice one iota of style, thanks to her massive black Balenciaga bag and olive green slubby tee.

We'll go on record to say that we prefer LC without makeup than with. She's such a naturally pretty girl who doesn't need to rely on lots of enhancement.
