However, seeing our favourite celebrities without their makeup on is still a rare thing and despite the recent trend for stripped back beauty, a glance at their au naturel looks can be surprising - especially when getting all dolled up for film premieres, awards ceremonies and A-list parties is all part of their day jobs.
Yes, looking effortlessly beautiful on the red carpet is a given when you're a film star or singer, but guess what? Rihanna, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian didn't wake up like that. Need proof? Watch this video for a peek at the best before and after makeup shots of these famous faces:
You'll also notice these celebs don't like to stick to the same look for too long either.
Remember what Taylor Momsen looked like before she embraced her gothic side? Or Emma Stone's days as a blonde? As these ladies know, there's nothing like a brand new hair colour or a makeup transformation to get you noticed.
Bored of having long locks? Don't be. Before you go for the chop, look to these celebrities for hair inspiration - the style options are endless...
