Pamela Anderson says she stopped wearing makeup after her makeup artist died.
Alexis Vogel, Anderson's longtime makeup artist, died of breast cancer in 2019.
"I just felt, without Alexis, it's just better for me not to wear makeup," Anderson told Elle.
Pamela Anderson said she stopped wearing makeup after her makeup artist died from breast cancer.
In an interview with Elle, Anderson described her style in the '90s as "wild and uninhibited."
Known for her pencil-thin brows, smokey eyeliner, and messy bun, Anderson said that there were even times when she showed up to her children's school covered in glitter.
"I'd be volunteering at the kids' school, and I would catch myself in a reflection, and I'd have glitter all over my face," Anderson told Elle.
Everything changed in 2019, when her makeup artist Alexis Vogel died from breast cancer.
"She was the best. And since then, I just felt, without Alexis, it's just better for me not to wear makeup," Anderson said.
Anderson met Vogel in 1993, at a cover shoot for Playboy magazine. The makeup artist was responsible for Anderson's signature smokey eyes, according to Byrdie.
The 56-year-old actor also spoke about how she "just went along" with what people were telling her to do because she didn't have much say over her appearance in the early parts of her career.
But now, she's learning how to embrace the aging process and her natural beauty.
"I think we all start looking a little funny when we get older. And I'm kind of laughing at myself when I look at the mirror. I go, 'Wow, this is really...what's happening to me?' It's a journey," she said.
Calling her new minimalist look "freeing, and fun, and a little rebellious too," the actor acknowledges that she is just as defiant of trends as ever.
"Because I did notice that there were all these people doing big makeup looks, and it's just like me to go against the grain and do the opposite what everyone's doing," she added.
