Everyone knows the importance of taking their makeup off before bed; it’s probably one of the most basic skin care tips, right up there with making sure to always wear sunscreen and drink enough water. However, there have been quite a few celebrities in recent years who have admitted to wearing makeup at all times—yes, even to bed. Sometimes it’s out of laziness, and sometimes it’s an attempt to please their partner. Either way, it’s not something we recommend. Leaving aside the potential issues that could be behind the fear of letting your closest loved one see your bare face, it’s simply not good for your skin. Leaving makeup on overnight can clog pores and lead to breakouts and irritated skin.
Read on to find out which celebrities have admitted to never (or almost never) going makeup-free, but remember that this is one time you shouldn’t emulate a celebrity’s beauty habits.

Kim Kardashian credited Charlotte Tilbury with passing the habit of sleeping with makeup on to her in a speech at the 2015 InStyle awards. “Charlotte Tilbury is my hero because she has never let her husband see her without makeup on,” she said. “She sleeps with her makeup on. She’s my idol. She’s inspired me when I am really lazy and I can’t do my makeup the next day, so I’ll sleep in my makeup. I know that’s probably the worst advice, but she has all the magic creams to put on the next day to make up for it.”
