It takes a brave woman to venture out in public without makeup -- especially when she knows there are likely to be cameras following her every barefaced move. Regardless, even the rich and famous sometimes don't want to assemble an entire glam squad before leaving the house.

Some, like Olivia Wilde, look just as good without makeup, while others (hi, Cameron Diaz!) wear face paint for a very good reason. We've assembled a list of dozens of barefaced stars along with photos that prove the point.

So the next time you're comparing your face to a famous airbrushed mug in a magazine, knock it off already. With the right makeup, hair and lighting, you too could look that fabulous. (Okay, maybe not, but the thought makes us less bitter.)
