Heidi Klum Goes Makeup Free For First Ever 'BearFaced Day' (PHOTOS)


It's not very often that we get to see supermodels without a stitch of makeup. Aside from the rare sighting of a Kate Moss or a Brooke Shields au naturale, these ladies are usually perfectly done-up every time they step into the public eye. So what would make an industry big-whig like Heidi Klum take it all off in front of the camera on purpose? Why a good cause, of course.

The 39-year-old posed for BBC Children In Need's first-ever "BearFaced Day" campaign that will raise money for disadvantaged children in the United Kingdom. The official day is November 9th, and women across the UK are encouraged to join in on the makeup-free day to boost awareness for the cause. We clearly have no qualms about going without makeup, but if we looked as good as Heidi does in the photo, we don't think we'd see a need to drop another cent on cosmetics ever again.

As we've well-documented, the mother-of-four is used to having fun with her beauty look (dip-dyed pink hair and matching mommy-daughter lipstick are just a couple of trends she's tried recently), but there's absolutely no hiding behind any gimmicks in this campaign. While Heidi looked flawless in her portrait, the Rankin-lensed shoot featured two other lovely faces who are more well-known across the pond: Louise Redknapp and Harry Style's ex Caroline Flack.

And even though we're based stateside, we plan on spending the day sans makeup on November 9th -- hey, what could be better than joining in on a good cause while supporting a little female empowerment? Check out the gorgeous shots below and tell us what you think. Would you go makeup-free for a day?
