Jessie J, Sammi, Snooki And More Celebrity Makeunders We Love (PHOTOS)

Some stars are known for their wild, over-the-top clothes and makeup. So what happens when a celebrity gets a serious (and often critical) makeunder? Our respect for them seriously skyrockets, that's what.

Take singer Jessie J, for example, who recently unveiled a brand new look after ditching her signature blunt bangs, ombre hair and brightly-colored makeup. We can't get over how pretty she looks.

She's not the only one, however, to undergo a beauty transformation. "Jersey Shore" stars Snooki and Sammi have both received noteworthy makeunders (from V Magazine and XOJane respectively). But, that doesn't mean we don't have a soft spot their famously bronzed look -- just take a look at the makeover our mostly makeup-free beauty editor Simone Kitchens got from Snooki last year.

Check out these celebrities below and let us know what you think: Do you prefer stars with a lot of makeup or just a little?
