Kim Kardashian's Reason for Ditching Makeup Is As Cool As It Gets

It's highly unlikely that many people would refer to Kim Kardashian -- or any of the Kardashians for that matter -- as "fresh-faced." The KDash ladies love them some makeup, and there's no denying that they know how to rock false eyelashes and contoured cheeks like nobody's business. But, as you may have noticed, Reigning Makeup Queen Kim appears to be wearing less lip gloss, mascara, and bronzer than usual recently. In fact, we've even seen a few no-makeup selfies from the reality star as of late -- something she rarely did in the past. Wondering why Kim isn't piling it on as much these days? The reason is pretty dang adorable.


Apparently, Kim wants to be able to kiss and hug her sweet 1-year-old daughter, North West! And, as anyone who's ever kissed and hugged a baby knows, it's much easier when you don't have on a face full of makeup (unless, you know, you don't mind said baby getting lipstick, blush, and foundation all over them). In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, Kim said, "Ever since I had the baby, there was at least four months I went without makeup or hair products. I loved it. You can kiss your baby and you can snuggle. I am less on the makeup since I had a baby for sure because it makes it hard to kiss." Adorable.

There are always a million and one changes parents make when kids come into the picture, and although "wearing less makeup" probably isn't a big one for most moms, clearly for Kim, whose livelihood is her looks, it is. So, I think it's pretty cute that she's making the "sacrifice" in order to cuddle her little girl.

Now, show us more photos of you cuddling North and less makeup shots, Kim! Put your money where your un-glossed mouth is!
