Heidi Klum Goes Makeup-Free, Looks Beautiful (PHOTOS)

We're used to seeing supermodel Heidi Klum walk the Victoria's Secret runway decked out in red lips, dark eyeshadow and lots of rouge but the 39-year-old mom doesn't really care if she has her photograph taken without a hint of makeup on her pretty face.

The gorgeous "Project Runway" host was seen with her two children, Leni and Johan, while taking a walk in California yesterday.

Looking fresh-faced, Heidi hid her model figure beneath jeans and a grey hoodie while holding her son close to her.

So what's her secret to flawless skin? Heidi told Allure magazine, "I learned not to go in the sun early on in my career. A tan lasts for a week or two before it fades, and the sun is so damaging—it's not worth it."

She isn't the only celeb who likes being make-up free; other stars such as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lawrence and Selena Gomez have been spotted bare-faced and beautiful.

Heidi's dressed-down look is a far cry from the sexy image she presented to us at Elton John's Oscar party in February where she wore a sequined gold gown with a plunging neckline that left very little to the imagination.

The model has been very low-key since rescuing her son Henry from a near-drowning in Hawaii earlier this month.

What do you think of Heidi's low-key look?
