56 years-old Canadian-American actress and model Pamela Anderson explains her decision to go makeup-free. There are valuable lessons we can glean from her choice



Who needs makeup these days? It’s not Pamela Anderson.

More and more people of all ages are going against beauty standards and going for a more natural look. This is a healthy trend that we can all learn from, according to experts.

In an interview that came out Thursday, Anderson, 56, told Allure, “I don’t think you should give me credit for it being a stunt. That’s not how I think.”

Anderson was shot a lot in bikinis and heavy makeup while she was on “Baywatch” and as a model.

“I’ve always felt like I need to share a little monster inside me.” She said, “I’ve been trying, and I’ve started to feel closest to it. It’s peeling back everything and trying to remember what my first thoughts were.” “It’s not just about makeup, taking off the mask, but it’s about why am I here, what’s my purpose, why do I resonate with people, can I help in any way?”

Anderson herself chose not to wear makeup, but she said it wasn’t to make a “political” point.

“I would come back from the shows wearing all these clothes and a big funny hat and everything and there were all these paparazzi, and then I went in one door and changed into my jeans and T-shirt and no makeup and walked out the door right through the same crowd that had been chasing me and no one noticed,” she shared with Allure.

In an interview with Vogue France in October, Anderson said she doesn’t wear makeup to Paris Fashion Week events because she “doesn’t want to compete with the clothes.”

Also, “I’m not into the makeup look right now,” she said. “My mom always told me, ‘At some time in your life, you’ll not want to wear makeup on your skin,’ and she was right. Sometimes you have to question what beauty is.”

Anderson said she doesn’t wear makeup because she wants to show other women that there are many ways to express themselves.

“I’m not trying to be the prettiest girl in the room,” she stated. “I think it’s just freedom.” “That’s good news.”

Why are famous people going for a natural look?

Anderson is not the only famous person who has recently gone for a more natural look. Katie Couric wore no makeup for a People magazine spread in March 2021 and said it made her feel “liberated and vulnerable.” In August 2020, Kelly Ripa made fun of her gray hair. In April, Justine Bateman told “60 Minutes Australia” that she thinks she looks “rad” as she ages naturally, even though people have said mean things about her looks online.

“I like feeling that I am a different person now than I was when I was 20,” he said. “I like seeing that proof when I look in the mirror. I think my face shows what kind of person I am.” “That’s nice.”

The founder of Naturium Skincare and the YouTube program Mixed Makeup, Susan Yara, told USA TODAY that Couric’s People cover went against the idea that “women fade into the background as we age.”

“Men seem to thrive more when they age,” she stated. “Women should have the same rights.” “We’re more sure of ourselves and have the kind of wisdom that comes with age.”

Doctor of esthetics and YouTube skin care star Cassandra Bankson said, “Being able to age is a privilege” and “we should embrace how our skin takes care of us and the stories it tells.”

At “60 Minutes Australia,” Bateman seemed to agree with this point of view when she talked about why she doesn’t want to get plastic surgery: she says she believes the treatments “would erase” the authority she’s built up over the years.
