Katie Couric’s fresh-faced beauty is making the news.
The award-winning journalist, 64, posed makeup-free for People’s annual “Beautiful Issue,” telling the magazine she felt “both liberated and vulnerable” during the stripped-down shoot.
“You feel great because you’re being true to who you are and how you look. It’s a huge dose of reality!” she said.
Couric kept her responses as real as her look, admitting that when the outlet first approached her with the concept, she thought, “Are you out of your mind? Hell no.”
But after thinking it over, the news icon agreed to the shoot. “Let’s face it, people feel prettier when they have some makeup on that enhances their features,” she said. “So I think doing a shoot like this requires a lot of trust.”
Even when she’s not going barefaced for photos, Couric said she’s been skipping the “full spackle treatment” during her own beauty routine, since she’s no longer on camera every morning.
“If you wear too much, it’s really aging. If you wear none, it’s terrifying,” she said of her makeup approach in her mid-60s, which includes her “go-to” L’Oréal mascara from CVS.
“You just have to wear the right amount [of makeup] to enhance yourself but not to cover up who you are,” she explained. “Now people are saying to me, ‘We don’t like you with all that makeup anymore!’ I think people appreciate showing the real you.”
Don’t expect her to be stressing over fine lines anytime soon, either. “I think wrinkles show a lifetime of laughing and smiling,” Couric said. “And that’s an awesome thing to show on your face.”
While Couric recently revealed that she won’t be permanently hosting “Jeopardy”, the former “Today” co-host has her own media company and produces a newsletter and a podcast.
And as a mom of two daughters — Elinor, 30, and Caroline, 25 — the media mogul is striving to teach her kids that “girls are so much more than their packaging.”
“When we start seeing women as they age and appreciate the beauty that comes with that, women will stop trying to look young all the time,” she said.
