A lot can be said (and frequently IS said) about the unrealistic expectations celebrities absentmindedly impose on us regular, everyday folk. We see them bounce back to the epitome of fitness after giving birth, waltz around in gowns and gemstones with probably a thousand dollars worth of makeup, and even at the beach, they put us to shame more often than not. We see them in magazines, television shows, and movies every day and we know we don't look like that but my gosh do most of us strive towards.
The truth is most of it is a bit of a lie. Or at the very least a huge exaggeration! They DO have access to tools, food, and beauty regimes that we could only dream of but at the end of the day when they're tired and stripped of all make up, they look a lot more like you and me than they usually put up.
It's not like we celebrate their exhaustion but we appreciate their realism. We appreciate reality because we live it every day. So, with that in mind, here are 18 flawless examples of how some of our favorite celebrities really look.
