  • Michelle Dockery is a natural beauty for Children In Need

    Downton Abbey‘s Lady Mary has decided to bare all, and show off her make-up free face for this year’s BearFaced Day.

    Michelle Dockery is one of a host of celebrities to support the annual campaign, which aims to raise money for Children in Need. Joining Michelle in her cosmetic-free crusade is fellow actress Jodie Whittaker, newsreader Fiona Bruce, singer Rachel Stevens, athlete Denise Lewis, and Radio DJ Vanessa Feltz.

    Speaking about her involvement in BearFaced Day, Michelle called to women everywhere to leave their make-up bag well alone next Friday 8 November: ‘Ladies discard your mascara and join me and all our women in going BearFaced for the day – it’s such a simple way to get involved with raising money for Children in Need.’

    Laura Whitmore, Sheridan Smith, Kimberley Walsh, Suki Waterhouse and Jo Wood are just some of the other names that have already announced their commitment to BearFaced Day 2013, and have been photographed without any foundation, mascara or lippy for world-renowned photographer Rankin.

    From 1 – 9 November, Boots will be supporting your efforts and helping you get your skin looking its best to go make-up free, by donating 5p out of every £1 spent on No7 products to Children In Need. 

    So, come next Friday, we don’t want to see any make-up anywhere near your face. It’s only one day…
