The Unfortunate Reasons Pamela Anderson No Longer Wears Makeup

Pamela Anderson first shot to stardom in the 1990s as C.J. Parker on Baywatch, and since then, she has become a household figure. The performer gained notoriety for decades with her trademark blonde bombshell, thin brows, and smoky eye combination. However, within the past year or two, she has completely abandoned her characteristic appearance, and there’s a very tragic explanation for why she doesn’t wear makeup anymore.

With a radiant, fresh face, Anderson has recently been photographed on numerous public occasions. These include the Oscars this past Sunday, March 10, the 2023 Fashion Awards red carpet a few months ago (4 December), and Paris Fashion Week last autumn (28 September). The 56-year-old has consistently sported a radiant, makeup-free look, and while it shouldn’t be a huge problem if celebrities choose to wear makeup or not at public events, it’s evident that this is regrettably not the norm.

Anderson had previously disclosed to Elle Magazine in August of last year that she had recently experienced a significant personal loss as the reason behind her decision to tone down her iconic bombshell beauty look. Anderson decided to give up her signature style after losing her close friend and beauty artist, Alexis Vogel, to breast cancer in 2019.

She was the best,” said the mother of two. “And since then, I just felt, without Alexis, it’s just better for me not to wear makeup.” In addition, Anderson told the source that giving up the cosmetics style that catapulted her to prominence was a refreshing shift, calling the novel experience “freeing, fun, and a little rebellious, too.”

Since then, German-born model and content producer Marie von Behrens-Felipe and her husband Roberto A. Felipe founded the vegan and cruelty-free skincare company Sonsie. Anderson has since revealed a brand-new skincare endeavor in which they have partnered.

Beauty Beyond the Layers

She explained that she was ‘peeling back off the layers of [her] life’ with her new, minimalist style in an interview with The New York Times. She remarked, “I’m a fresh slate now, at the starting position of the next chapter,” and that since she won’t have to “pretend to be something that [she] is not,” this chapter is “going to be even better.” “I’m enjoying the process of getting older,” she continued.

“I find humor in the things that are happening to my face, like some of the elasticity is going away.” Now that I’m somewhat mysterious and have some secrets, I feel hotter. That is something we discover much later in life.

The icon has discussed her notion of beauty, saying, “I don’t want to fit into any formula.” I want to peel it back and strip it off. I understand what it’s like to be a working mother, a single mother, a mother in the workforce, or to be in a failing relationship. “I’m drawing so much inspiration from life itself. For me, that means it’s much more enjoyable. We have no one to answer to.”

Furthermore, “[Beauty] is about being okay with who you are right now, loving where you are in your beauty journey, and celebrating where you are at. “Really embracing where you’re at and making yourself feel the best and representing your highest self.” Deliver a sermon.
