While some women are stocking up on fall shades of lipstick and eyeshadow, others are planning to go bare-faced for good.

A growing number of celebrities and "real" women are choosing not to wear any makeup at all thanks to the increasingly popular #NoMakeup movement taking over social media, according to the Huffington Post. Many are even taking it a step further by revealing their stretch marks, acne, untamed hair, and other "flaws."

The No-Makeup Look appears to have been adopted by women who are comfortable with themselves and their appearance. By embracing this trend, these women may be sending a message that they desire to be seen more authentically — to be accepted for how they actually look, without camouflage or enhancements.

The #NoMakeup movement doesn't care about your frizzy hair, acne or stretch marks.

"Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn't put on makeup," she wrote. "These were the insecure, superficial, but honest thoughts I was thinking. And all of it, one way or another, was based too much on what other people thought of me."

What began as one photograph, has already impacted women everywhere. 

It all started with Alicia Keys, who announced she would no longer be wearing makeup in her personal or public life, which includes her appearances as a coach on the popular NBC show The Voice.

 The singer explained that she was tired of covering up her face, and thereby also masking who she really is, in a recent issue of Lenny Letter.

"I hope to God it's a revolution," she said. "'Cause I don't want to cover up anymore. Not my face, not my mind, not my soul. Nothing."
