10 Celebs Who Look Unrecognizable Without Makeup

7 Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow became famous for her very prolific movie career. Now, she’s embracing a second career (and a string of criticisms and scandals) with her wellness and lifestyle brand Goop.

That distinction is both important and ironic because the picture of Paltrow on the right looks like the movie star you remember. And the picture on the left looks exactly like the kind of person you’d expect to peddle weird herbal cures and pseudoscience to you from a nearby street corner.

8 Shakira

Shakira recently made waves with a Super Bowl performance that wowed the world. Fans noted just how amazing she looked, especially for a musician whose career arguably peaked back in 2005.

Those good looks manage to shine through even without makeup. While she’s not really recognizable as megastar Shakira without her makeup, she still looks very much like the cute neighbor next door.
