Kelly Rowland poses with no makeup for People magazine. Would you?

Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington and Halle Berry are among those celebrities chosen by People Magazine for the 2013 World’s Most Beautiful List. Check out two of Kelly’s photos below. Doesn’t she look beautiful with no makeup on? πŸ™‚ If you were her, would you pose in a photo spread without any makeup? If I had Kelly’s flawless skin, I wouldn’t mind at all! Also, it must be nice to let your skin breath for a minute. I feel like celebrities like Kelly Rowland have to wear makeup almost 24/7. I’m sure she was happy to finally have a...
