Rachel McAdams goes natural for the August issue of Allure

Rachel Anne McAdams (born November 17, 1978) is a Canadian actress. When posing for the cover of Allure magazine this August, it’s uncovered that Rachel McAdams is a natural beauty.


The Notebook actress — whose next film, A Most Wanted Man, opens July 25 — boldly went with what appears to be no makeup not for an #unfiltered selfie but for an international magazine. And… she looks gorgeous.


The 35-year-old seems to have passed on eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick for the August 2014 cover of Allure. Her skin looked flawless and fresh as she showed off her movie star smile. (A rep for the magazine would not confirm that she’s makeup free.) The brunette’s hair had slight curls and was sculpted around her face.


Rachel going sans cosmetics must have made her sister’s job quite easy. Kayleen McAdams, the younger sibling of the actress, is a makeup artist for the stars, including her sis and celebrities from Sofia Vergara to Lily Collins.


McAdams isn’t the only celeb who’s decided to go mostly bare for a magazine cover. In November, Penelope Cruz went makeup-free on the cover of Elle, showing off her freckles. Other magazines have also featured cosmetic-less celebrities inside their pages. Earlier this year, Scarlett Johansson and Kate Winslet were among the stars to go 100 percent makeup free for Vanity Fair. And last year, Demi Lovato, Olivia Munn, and Kelly Rowland were some of the stars who removed their makeup for People magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful issue in a section called “Not a Drop of Makeup.”


While Rachel’s fresh face is making headlines today, it was her The Notebook co-star and ex-boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, in the news yesterday after word leaked that he’s expecting his first child with girlfriend Eva Mendes. So fans of the movie will likely never get to see the reel-to-real-life pair reunite. Sigh!
