9 Times Megan Fox Went Makeup-Free And Looked Flawless

Since stepping into the spotlight in the early aughts, Megan Fox has been the epitome of classic beauty. A beloved yet somewhat controversial figure in the entertainment industry, Fox has captivated audiences with her striking features and magnetic presence. Moreover, she's become a major makeup and fashion trendsetter, not least because of her glossy Y2K lip look from "Jennifer's Body."

Today, Fox is synonymous with confidence, beauty, and female strength. Of course, the star is aware of her beauty and even addressed it in a 2014 interview. "I don't feel like being beautiful is a hindrance when you are an actress. I feel like it's probably something that's helpful," she told E! News at the time. "But in terms of being critically acclaimed, that has to come from me giving a worthy performance. That lies within myself — it's not someone else's fault."

Amid the glitz and glizour of the entertainment industry, Fox has managed to remain authentic and unafraid to showcase her beauty with a bare face. From candid moments at airports to adorable selfies, Fox's makeup-free looks, which the star shares (and deletes) on social media from time to time, serve as a reminder of her radiance.

Early morning ✔️ no makeup ✔️ filter ✔️✔️." This immediately showcased her candid and down-to-earth approach to social media. Of course, anyone who used the platform at the time surely remembers just how popular Instagram filters were, so we can't fault her for indulging.
