Obviously, country music fans think all of our female stars are beautiful… because they are. We can’t wait to see them decked out in sassy stage wear at their concerts or dazzling evening gowns as they stroll red carpets for award shows. And, of course, their makeup, often professionally done, is impeccable with lush eyelashes, flawless foundation and the perfect shade of peach or berry for their kissers. They absolutely take our breath away.
Those moments aren’t every day though and, as Luke Bryan sings, when they’re home, they “strip it down.” But unless you live in Nashville and might run into them at the grocery store, you wouldn’t expect to see them out and about without their hair and makeup perfect, right?
Wrong! Country girls aren’t afraid to go au naturel (without makeup) and even post pictures on their socials of their bare faces and hair in ponytails and messy buns. Carrie Underwood, who works with cosmetic company Almay, even posted a photo recently of her makeup free and sweaty after a workout. We absolutely love that these superstar ladies keep it real, and we love them even more for it.
It also just goes to show that country girls are natural beauties — inside and out.
1. Carrie Underwood
We aren’t saying Carrie doesn’t look great made up, we’re just saying she also looks amazing undone.

Cloudy but no rain = perfect day to run outside! 1mi treadmill warm up, tabata arms and abs, finish up with a 3 mile run/lunge up the hills. I'm a sweaty mess, but fortunately I have sweet Penny to help get me cleaned up! Ew. #StayThePath #CALIAbyCarrie #NoMakeup #NoFilter #BeNice
We aren’t sure if Reba is completely barefaced here, but she isn’t in full glam. Maybe just a brush of mascara and a kiss of her own brand of Reba lipgloss.
3/4. Miranda Lambert and RaeLynn
Hey, these ladies are busy working women and when they aren’t, they can’t be bothered with getting done up. And they don’t need to.
5. Jennifer Nettles
A peek at J-Net’s Insta page proves she isn’t afraid of her bare skin. Or of poking a little fun at her beautiful self.
6. Kelly Clarkson
The cool thing about Kelly is when she’s bare-faced, there’s nothing holding her natural glow back!
7. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott
I mean, come on. Those eyes. Absolutely stunning!
8. Cassadee Pope
We love Cassadee’s freckles so much that it’s great to see them uncovered!
