Sofia Vergara took a no-makeup selfie, and everyone is confused about it

Makeup-free selfies seem to be having a moment. First, Amy Schumer’s hilarious parody of boy band anthems “Girl You Don’t Need Makeup” launched a viral makeup-free selfie campaign. Then, Tyra Banks made waves last week with her “raw and real” selfie. Now, the notoriously glamorous Sofia Vergara is stepping up to the plate with her own makeup-free selfie.

Vergara posted this glowing poolside selfie to her Instagram last Sunday. While Vergara’s caption makes no reference to makeup or a lack thereof, media outlets and readers are marveling at how flawless she looks au naturel.

Some makeup-free selfie truthers, however, have been less kind.

It’s no surprise that trolls would be “suspicious” about Vergara’s flawless appearance. But guys, she didn’t even say she wasn’t wearing makeup. Can’t a girl just post a pool pic in peace?

Sofia’s not the only celebrity who’s been accused of faking her #makeupfree selfie. Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez have also been accused of wearing makeup in their own selfies—despite the fact that criticizing women for lying about wearing makeup is just as offensive as insisting they should wear it in the first place. 

But don’t worry, Sofia: You’re in good company.  Plenty of other celebs are posting similarly natural-looking shots, such as Kylie Jenner, Zendaya, and Demi Lovato.

We love seeing these ladies so comfortable in their skin. Here’s looking forward to the day when a lady taking a photo without makeup isn’t such a big deal.
