Seeing pictures of celebrities without makeup isn't a very common occurrence in the pop music industry, but it always brings about some sort of comfort when they arise. When we catch a glimpse of a photo of an ultra-glamorous celebrity like Beyonce or Lady Gaga without their makeup on, the pic brings them down to a more familiar level, reminding us that these otherworldly creatures are actually just normal people when it really comes down it.

In these pictures of celebrities without makeup, scroll through photos of stars without their normal masks of expensive foundation, blush, lipstick and mascara. We must say, we were expecting to find some not-so-flattering shots, but for the most part, all of these ladies look stunning without makeup! Lady Gaga looks mesmerizing in her makeup-free Harper's Bazaar shoot, as do Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, who all went makeup-less for photo shoots in different publications.

To no real surprise either, Beyonce looks absolutely beautiful without the help of cosmetics, proving that this lady could be rolling around in a heap garbage and still somehow look ravishing! Rihanna also can ditch the concealer and eyeliner, because the 'Where Have You Been' songstress still floors us with her flawless looks minus the makeup. Same goes for Kesha, who should consider going au natural all of the time!

Check out these photos of celebrities without makeup, including more from Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry -- FYI: we still blame Katy's ex-hubby Russell Brand for not even giving the girl a minute to get camera-ready for that infamous Twitter picture, which you can also see below.
