These child pageant stars prefer no makeup to their over-the-top costumes!

Anderson Cooper hosted three child pageant stars (including Eden Wood!) and their moms on his show and asked the wardrobe department to give the girls ‘makeunders’! When he asked the girls if they preferred to be with or without makeup, they all had the same quick response: “Without!”

The team took off the girls’ makeup, removed their hair extensions and put them in more age-appropriate outfits. The girls all agreed they liked their new look. A former child beauty queen was also on the show to talk about how she felt robbed of her childhood. “I was happiest when I was playing soccer or digging for worms in my own backyard,” she said.

The moms semi-agreed that they liked their daughters without makeup, and Eden’s mom said, “However she wants to be.”

If the girls all preferred being barefaced, do they really want to do pageants? What do you think HollyMoms? Do these girls look better with or without their makeup?

Check out New York Magazine‘s video to see the girls sans makeup!
