Since stepping onto the scene, a.k.a. the Hollywood spotlight, Paris Jackson has made it incredibly clear she’s not one to abide by society’s arcane — not to mention sexist — notions of how women are “supposed” to look. The 19-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson showed off her body hair with pride, got candid about having stretch marks and scars, and even spoke out about unattainable beauty standards.
None of this should be ground-breaking news, but then again, it’s no secret we still have a lot of work to do when it comes to the perennial and unrealistic pressure society puts on women to look perfect all the time. Nevertheless, Jackson unapologetically does her, no matter what anyone thinks, and proved this yet again when she showed up to a red carpet event completely bare-faced — that’s right, no a drop of makeup. (Cue me swooning all over the place.)
The blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty stepped out for People’s Ones To Watch event on October 4 sporting, well, nothin’ but a bit of clear lip balm. Her skin was left totally au naturel — and somehow managed to still look completely dewy and glowing — and she didn’t appear to be wearing anything on her eyes or brows either. And you know what, folks? She looked stunning, as per usj. What’s more, this is making me seriously get into the zero eye makeup look.
We’ve also seen other celebs such as Alicia Keys, Zoe Saldana, Busy Phillips, and more go without their glam for red carpet appearances. Jackson is clearly comfortable in her own skin, just as she’s also to throw on lots of fun and bold beauty products, and why shouldn’t she be? Props to her for throwing societal expectations to wayside yet again, and for switching up her look so effortlessly.
