Tina Fey Makeup-Free At Children's Musical Benefit (PHOTOS)

The phrase "makeup-free mom" should be redundant -- how many moms have time to put on makeup?! -- but in this hi-def, paparazzi-filled world, many celebrity mamas feel they don't have a choice.

So thank god for moms like Gwyneth Paltrow and Tina Fey, who bravely step out sans maquillage and look all the better for it.

Fey had a kiddie-filled day of fun this weekend, attending the performances of "Freckleface Strawberry The Musical" and "PETER PANTOmime" in New York. Sporting an off-duty look, Fey wore skinny jeans, a brown sweater, cute black ankle boots and a chic leather satchel.

Most importantly her face was nearly bare (although we may detect a hint of lipgloss and mascara...)

Either way, Tina appears fresh-faced and lovely (and totally relaxed -- her show, "30 Rock," doesn't come back to TV till January 12). And it's a whole lot better than her recent paint-spattered style.
