Jessica Simpson goes makeup-free in new selfie

·2-min read

A day after Adele posted a makeup-free photo to celebrate her 33rd birthday, Jessica Simpson has shared a barefaced selfie of her own.

The 40-year-old star and mum of three showed off a more natural look on Instagram on Thursday, posing without makeup and with her long blond hair seemingly unstyled.

Her outfit was equally relaxed and fuss-free: a gray hoodie which she also sported in a second photo posted to Instagram Stories.

Both photos hinted at Jessica's upbeat mood, with captions like "sunny kinda mornin'" and "rise and shine."


Most of the Open Book author's followers were feeling the softer look.

"Thank you for being so real!!!" read one comment. "Still gorgeous without all the makeup!"

"So naturally beautiful!!!!" added another follower. "You are such an amazing example for women our age."

"I just love these natural fresh-faced pics of you!!!" agreed a commenter.

But some suggested the singer’s ageless look might have been the result of Botox and fillers – or even plastic surgery.

“Not natural unfortunately … but each to their own,” one person wrote.

“What did you do to your face?” was another question.

The fashion boss has previously addressed rumours about her appearance, telling Glamour in 2006 that while she did try Restylane, she found it made her look "fake."

"My lips are back to what they were," she told the magazine. "Thank God!"

And in her 2020 memoir, Open Book, Simpson revealed that she underwent two tummy tucks following her first two pregnancies, one of which caused complications resulting in a nine-day hospital stay. 

“I need to say this: If you have stretch marks from pregnancy, I hope you can be proud that your body created life," she shared. "I was not strong enough. It touched all my insecurities, and I couldn’t handle it.”

While she said the procedures made her feel like herself again, she added that "I can tell you that plastic surgery does not cure what’s inside. Really, it’s about how you feel emotionally, and I was still just as hard on myself once those stitches were out.”
