It took actress Megan Fox a lot longer than most celebs to jump on the Instagram and Twitter bandwagon, but she finally did. And what do you suspect she did next? Ding ding ding! Yep, she posted her very first "makeup-free selfie!"
These pics have become a major rite of passage for beautiful famous women, haven't they? But the problem is they also open up the comment floodgate. What exactly does it mean to be "makeup-free?" Does it count if a filter is used? A little mascara okay? And what if the actress has had plastic surgery -- not that I'm saying Megan has -- is it fair to ooh and ahh over her "natural beauty" when she's had a little help from a scalpel?
Rev your critical engines because here's Megan and her splendid makeup-free selfie ...
The 28-year-old Transformers star and mom to two boys posted this photo of herself in a white robe with the caption: "First IG selfie. Early morning no makeup."
Look, I can see that her eyelashes are a little too long and perfect, so maybe this isn't a true "makeup-free" selfie. But Megan proves two things with this image that are undeniable: first, her skin is flawless. You can fake a lot of things, but good skin is NOT one of them. She's about to give her dermatologist quite a bit of publicity with this shot. And the second thing: holy eyebrows, are those gorgeous! The rest of your face can be completely bare, but if you have well-groomed brows, you can totally forego the lipstick.
I'm sure Megan haters are about to have a fit because, we hear, she may have had some work in the form of injections and fillers. But let's give her credit where it's due. Her features are beautiful and, more importantly, she has waited this long to splash her photos across every social media site in existence. There aren't many other beautiful women you can say that about.
I don't know about you, but I'm going to go easy on her!
