Khloe Kardashian goes out without makeup, and the world freaks out

As with most things Kardashian and Kardashian-related, there’s no real story to go along with the images. People just like to look at photos of anyone named Kardashian (unless it’s Kourtney, I guess), sometimes to laugh, sometimes to cry, sometimes to mock, sometimes to learn (what not to do). These are new photos of Khloe Kardashian in Miami yesterday. The family Kardashian has pretty much relocated everything to Miami over the past few weeks – I guess they’re filming a new season. How long does it take for them to film a “season”? Like, three weeks? Such is the life of a reality star.

Anyway, everyone is talking about the photos of Khloe without makeup – apparently, she was heading into the gym. I get that some people are like, “OMG, Khloe without makeup, SNARK, SNARK.” Obviously, she doesn’t look her best. Obviously, she actually looks kind of rough. But I’m also including photos of Khloe later on in the day, after her workout and when she took the time to pour herself into a too-small dress, and spackle on some makeup. Does she even look better in those photos? Eh. Not really.

I’d always held Khloe up as the “natural” Kardashian, The Real Girl in a family of phonies. But I think I might have to come to terms with the idea that Khloe is getting tweaked too. That’s what these photos say to me – she’s getting lip injections and… I don’t even know. She just looks different. And I’m so tired of her trying to dress like her sisters. Dear Khloe: your sisters look horrible when they wear those clothes too, so why are you even trying to compete at that level?

Meanwhile, did you know that Khloe has signed on to host The X-Factor? True story. I don’t think she’s going to be a judge… everyone keeps saying “host”. Which means… what? She’ll be the one throwing to commercials, I guess. It’s a decent enough gig for her. But it’s causing major problems, at least in the tabloids. Sources claim Kim “is worried that Khloe is going to become more famous than her because of her X Factor gig. She has been snappy lately and saying things to Khloe like, ‘I should be a co-host with you’, or the other extreme, ‘The X Factor job is going to be totally stressful, are you sure you are up for this type of thing?’ Khloe wishes Kim would just be happy for her but there has always been some sort of competition between the girls. Kim’s biggest fear is that she will become irrelevant like Paris Hilton!” Meanwhile, The Enquirer is trying to claim that Khloe’s marriage is in trouble because Lamar is upset about the X-Factor gig too – go here to read that story.

    That first picture is pretty much me on a good day.

  2. Psssh says:

    She leaves the house with no makeup on?! Travesty!!

    For gods sake leave the poor girl alone. Lets go back to talking about lohan.

  3. SueD says:

    No makeup is fine but no bra is ridiculous.

  4. bea says:

    She needs a more flattering pair of sunglasses and the “no make up” look wouldn’t be so bad.

  5. effy says:

    She looks ok to me. so are the lips.
    And what’s with people and bra? bras were made to support saggy boobs. Please stop with the bra campaign already.

  6. Schnikes says:

    Must be freezing in Miami!

  7. serena says:

    I don’t care about the make-up but wear a f-ing bra!

  8. Smashley says:

    I never realized she had a mole on her forehead. That’s gross.

  9. NerdMomma says:

    In the dress, she looks like she has B-cups at most. In the workout top, she looks like she has D-cups with massive headlights. So my question: is she wearing a super-padded bra with added nipples to workout? Am I a conspiracy theorist?

    • Elizabeth says:

      Thought #1 : Yes, you are probably a conspiracy theorist.
      Thought #2 : But now that you mention the padded bra to the gym conspiracy theory, I’m thinking you might be right about it!?
      Thought #3 : Hmmmmm (scratches head).

    • cr says:

      She could be wearing a sports bra, which would give just enough support (she doesn’t look saggy enough to not be wearing a bra). But, if you have NHO’s (Nipple Hard Ons)they will show through a sports bra.

      • NerdMomma says:

        I can’t believe I’m still thinking about this but- don’t her breasts look much larger in the workout photos? I mean like, 2 cup sizes larger?

        They’re just reminding me of Courtney Stodden’s padding that comes with its own nipples so that they look totally RILL.

      • KC says:

        But sports bras squish everything down and make your boobs look smaller. I think in the first pic she isn’t wearing a bra so they’re sticking out more, and in the second one the dress is CLEARLY too small and is cutting into her boobs and probably squishing them down. I’ve worn dresses that are too small on top and they will make your boobs look smaller. Is this one of their Sears dresses so she has to wear it even though it doesn’t fit, or is she really this incapable of dressing herself?

    • MW says:

      Geez NerdMomma, I think you might be on to something! Speaking of creepy things!!! I just feel like running away, FAST, like Burton Guster on “Psych”!

  10. Palefire says:

    I can’t believe I’m defending a kardashian but SHE LOOKS FINE. This is not “rough”.

  11. mel2 says:

    OMG who goes to the gym with makeup on? Seriously people get a life.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Many decades ago, I dated someone who skied every weekend in the peak winter season. So I skied every weekend too. We left home at 6:30 am and drove north for almost 2 hours, then started skiing for the day. I would see women on the slopes with full make-up on and I would think “do you get up at 6:00 am to do that! ‘Cause I’d rather sleep in!”. Maybe they had chalets nearby. But my point is that going to ski, going to the gym, going for a workout shouldn’t have to involve make-up, IMO.
      I’m with you, mel2. Leave the girl alone. She’s going to go sweat already.

    • Stay-Cee says:

      Agree if you wear makeup to work out you are pretty damn insecure to show your face -__-

      • janie says:

        Meh, I’m in college and everyone looks hot at the gym, so I feel self-conscious if I don’t at least put some concealer under my eyes. I’m not insecure but I expect to be running in to people I know, and I’d prefer not to look like a sweaty raccoon.

    • Havik says:

      It’s a lot more common than you’d think! (doesn’t make it any less ridiculous, though)
      I once saw a woman go to “jog” (read: walk at a glacial pace) on the treadmill with full on smokey-eye and her hair (which fell at about her waist) completely down.

      I’m glad nobody takes photos of me going to and from the gym!

  12. Maritza says:

    She is going to the gym so no makeup is fine but no bra is not.

  13. Cathy says:

    I don’t care for the dress. It doesn’t look good on her at all.

  14. dd says:

    She has the best personality in that family…..because shes the least attractive

  15. lizzi says:

    A lot of people don’t wear makeup to the gym. big deal! I only wear it if it’s already on from that day. also the only thing I thought when i saw that pic was NIPS!!!

  16. Nibbi says:

    whatev. she’s by far the most likeable kardashian.

    also i think people’s objections to visible evidence that a woman has nipples is at best a bit much/ at worst downright sexist. (how dare she have real body parts that are related to us all being mammals and not have them strapped down/ covered up/ buried under layers of foam padding at all times?… )

  17. SnarkySnarkers says:

    Damn, I just said +1 to leaving her alone but upon review I can’t help but think “young Rosie O’Donnell” when I look at these pics. Nooooo Khloe!!!

  18. amurph says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Kim is extremely concerned about her “future” as a reality commodity. Khloe is definitely the nicest and seemingly more likable than the others, which means if you gave her a wider audience, she probably would get more and more business ventures going directly to her rather than through Kim.

  19. Amanda says:

    Prettier without the makeup

  20. jamie says:

    Can I just say it sucks being that sibling? My sister and brother have great genes and hair and stuff and I’m the one with short legs, long torso, nose broken multiple times, etc etc etc. At least Khloe doesn’t look fake, she just looks like she beds to find HER style.

  21. jamie says:

    Can I just say its tough being that sibling? My sister and brother have great genes and hair and stuff and I’m the one with short legs, long torso, nose broken multiple times, etc etc etc. Im not terrible looking by any means but then again im not trying to compete for attention or a paycheck or anything. At least Khloe doesn’t look fake, she just looks like she beds to find HER style.

  22. Phil E Stein says:

    The sexist comments on here. Gee I don’t know.

  23. BX says:

    Her nipples are intimidating, but her boobs look nice.

  24. keats says:

    I just want to push her sunglasses up the bridge of her nose a liiiittle bit.

  25. aims says:

    I would never go to the gym without some kind of support. It would be painful for me and others

  26. shewolf says:

    Why is everyone so HARD on these girls? They are all absolutely gorgeous despite the tranny makeup and unflattering outfit choices. The average woman isnt even half as good looking as a Kardashian so where does all the hate come from? Why am I defending the Kardashians? I think Im tired.

    • Rachel says:

      I’m just pissed that people are all in an uproar because she’s out without makeup on. I mean, oh my hold god! Is this the message that we want to send to women… and especially young girls??? Don’t go out with makeup! If you do, people will put you down right and left. You’re not pretty unless you spend at least 20 minutes “putting on your face.” Geez. I roll out of bed on the weekends to teach an early morning spinning class. I hope the people walking into my class aren’t judging me because I didn’t get up an hour earlier to do my hair and makeup.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Not only do I not criticize women who don’t wear makeup-I’m completely envious of them!

        I’ve been wearing eyeliner/mascara almost every day since I was 18. The older I get the more I realize that makeup doesn’t necessarily make me look better.

        I have several friends that NEVER wear makeup and they look fantastic-better than me.
        So there :)

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I’m just not a makeup-wearing gal. I LOVE it; I buy a LOT of it; I have a TON of it (mostly mascaras and lip stuff and eyeliners). But when it comes to wearing it, I’m so not there.

        I no longer work outside the home, and I don’t feel the need to gunk up my face for my 3 year old and the cats. Hubs likes me sans makeup, too.

        So WHEN I wear it, it’s mascara, maybe a little eyeliner, and lip gloss. I’m a sucker for lip gloss!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        That’s great, Obella.

        Honestly, with every year that passes, I get more and more exhausted and just plain bored with the process of applying makeup. If I didn’t have to drag my butt to an office every day, I would do away with it permanently.

      • RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

        Yes, of course there judging you. And, do you know what their thinking? “Omg, look at my spinning teacher. She looks like hell.” or some other judgy thing. Because thats people, especially women.

    • Lady D says:

      Hey OKitten, I wonder if you have ever thought of getting your eyelashes dyed? Takes about 15-20 minutes and the dye job lasts about 6 weeks. I wear makeup about as often as OBella does, but in the summer I can go swimming at the drop of a hat without worrying about raccoon eyes. I also do it around Xmas-New Years for the holidays. Trust it’s a hardcore time saver. Costs about $15-20, comes in 3 colours. You also get a bonus eyeliner job for about a week.

  27. muprhy says:

    (unless it’s Kourtney, I guess)

    I hope by this you mean no one even cares enough to look at her pictures to snark.

    I love Khloe.

  28. Paloma says:

    I’ve never seen her without her hair extensions.

  29. N-Bear says:

    She has a really nice figure – I’d kill for it, myself. I wish she’d dress it better – she’d outshine her sisters even more if she dressed for her curves instead of dressing like they don’t exist.

    No makeup? Yeah, letting all that skin breathe must let oxygen to her brain. The horrors!

  30. Francesca says:

    A sweater or a bra to cover the nipples would help A LOT but then no one would look twice at her so guess that’s why she rolls around with them out…

  31. Celt Lady says:

    Khloe can’t win, no matter what she does. She is called fat, but when she heads to the gym to work out then she is called ugly for being without makeup. Leave the girl alone. She is the only one in that family who has her act together.

  32. KellyinSeattle says:

    In the third photo, I can see the resemblance to her Kris. Thankfully, not personality-wise.

  33. Sara says:

    God, she went to gym. Why would she put some make up?

  34. Krissy says:

    I SWEAR I thought that was Rosie O”Donnell. But, work it girl!! No one needs to be dolled up 24/7. Be you

  35. palermo says:

    If we all had makeup artists fixing us up daily we would look totally different too. I never wear makeup to the gym, don’t know any serious exerciser who does. I like Khloe the best of them, she seems to have an actual personality and a more caring side, the other two girls are cold as ice and totally selfish. Kim has dead eyes, no soul inside her.

  36. ladybert62 says:

    If those snide comments by Kim to Khloe are true and correct, Khloe should put an immediate stop to them.

    Kim’s jealousy is rearing its ugly green head and makes Kim look even uglier than usual.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      ladyb – I totally believe Kim would say stuff like that to her sisters, especially Khloe.

      I mean, look at Khloe: She’s happily (and successfully) married to the ONLY man she’s ever married; people on gossip blogs seem to agree she’s the most tolerable, likable Kardashian; she just got that X-Factor gig; she’s basically removed herself from the family businesses and drama since her marriage; and Lamar and she are trying to have a child together.

      I’m sure Kim is green with envy and simply cannot stand the thought of not being that family’s “Biggest & Brightest Star.” (And by “star” I mean fame-whore.)

      Plus, it’s probably KILLING Kim that she can’t stunt-marry Kanye because she’s still married to her LAST stunt-marriage husband. Add to that the fact that Reggie’s having a baby with his girl, and I definitely wouldn’t want to be anywhere near Kim. (Though I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall to hear her meltdowns over all this.)

      We’ve seen (or read about) how Kim treats her siblings, and the conflict her attitude has caused within the family, so yeah, I totally believe she’s treating Khloe like shit.

    • KC says:

      I agree with BellaLuna, that sounds exactly like something Kim would say. I caught part of an episode (I’m ashamed I even watched part of it) and Kim noticed her brother’s hair was thinning and said something along the lines of “Your hair is thinning! You need to fix that NOW!” She was cackling the whole time, even when he became clearly upset because it was so hilarious that her little brother was loosing his hair. (“Why are you so upset? I’m just trying to help you!)

      The rest of the episode was Rob trying to find different ways to keep his hair from falling out even though Khloe and and Scott were telling him to calm down, it wasn’t that big of a deal. You know it’s bad when you make Scott Disick look really nice retaliative to you.

  37. Anonymous says:

    As I understand it, this girl is on fertility meds and has been for some time now. Please everyone, leave her face alone. I looked bloated as hell and generally different (not in a good way) for several months while taking fertility meds.

  38. Shelb says:

    I actually find her attractive in the “later” photos, which is something I never thought I say about Mrs. Odom.

  39. skuddles says:

    Whatever. She still looks better than her plastic, diaper-butt sister.

  40. LeslieM says:

    I can’t stand this woman. The way she goes around spanking her sisters and pretending to hump them is sick.

  41. tru tru says:

    she is one fugly “China, the Wrestler” looking chick..


    the magic of 10 make up people

  42. Mindy says:

    … is it bad that when I took a quick glance at the photo on the home page, I thought it was Rosie O’Donnell????

  43. UNF Joan Jett! says:

    “Kim’s biggest fear is that she will become irrelevant like Paris Hilton!”

    That would be HEAVEN!

  44. Saor says:

    Women don’t actually have to wear make-up if they don’t want to.

  45. blondie10101 says:

    Give the girl a break, she has to listen to Kim and Kris’ voices more than we do!

  46. The Original Victoria says:

    On the one hand people need to shut the hell up because the majority of the world is average just like Khloe, so they might want to take a good look at themselves in the mirror before coming at anyone. On the other hands, though a tinge more tolerable than the others, she’s still a Kardashian and by default deserves the snark for being famous for absolitely no reason.

    Even Joan Rivers had a career beyonder destroying her face.

  47. dj says:

    Who wears makeup to the gym? First, it is bad for your skin–clogs up your pores when you sweat and causes acne. Second, what a waste of time. She looks fine. Maybe, her sunglasses would be better in a different shape for her face. At least, she has a working relationship/marriage and now a real job! Way ahead of her siblings in my opinion.

  48. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Awww damn. My hubby and I have actually been watching X-Factor (we don’t normally watch those kinds of shows). But if a Kartrashian is going to be involved I may have to stop :( .

  49. baja says:

    ……..heart failures were numerous that day.

  50. Genevieve says:

    I don’t care about the no make-up. Its the glasses & how low they are on her face. And no bra?

  51. xoxokaligrl says:

    That is such an unflattering picture, she looks like Rosie O’donnell.
