When Pamela Anderson jetted off to Paris for Paris Fashion Week, she wasn’t planning on going makeup-free for the shows, however it felt right. In a recent Get Ready With Me video for Vogue France, the actor and author got real concerning the reason why she’s been skipping makeup lately, and in true Anderson fashion, it’s as unfiltered and free-spirited as you possibly can imagine.
“I didn’t come to Paris Fashion Week and think, ‘I’m not gonna wear makeup,'” Anderson says as she prepares for the Vivienne Westwood show. “Something type of got here over me and I used to be dressing in these beautiful clothes and I assumed, ‘I don’t desire to compete with the garments.’ I’m not attempting to be the prettiest girl within the room.” The star is fresh out of the bathtub together with her blonde hair air dried and only moisturizer on her face — that is it. “I’m not into the makeup look without delay,” she says, adding that she doesn’t have a glam team or a stylist.
According to Anderson, her makeup-free status — which has gathered a lot of attention in recent weeks — is a less of a press release and more of an “experiment”; it is a way for her to be “a little bit bit rebellious” in such a public, camera-heavy event like Paris Fashion Week. It’s also a part of her current attitude toward aging and loving herself for exactly who she is. “You must challenge beauty sometimes. If all of us chase youth or our idea of what beauty is … we’re only going to be upset and possibly a little bit bit sad,” she explains. Anderson did query her decision at first, but then she decided to roll with it. “I’m just being me, who I’m, in all these great clothes running around Paris. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my very own skin.”
For the Vivienne Westwood show, Anderson does apply just the teeniest, tiniest little bit of mascara alongside her homemade rose oil, which she applies throughout her face. As she preps for the show, she reveals that Victoria Beckham gave her a bunch of products from her eponymous beauty line, but she hasn’t used any of it.
