Tiffany Trump Is Unrecognizable Without Makeup

While most of President Donald Trump's kids are in the public eye, Tiffany Trump has been spotted more rarely over the years. There are a few good reasons for that, though. For starters, she grew up in California, on the opposite side of the country as the rest of the Trump siblings, moving there with her mom, Marla Maples, after her parents divorced (per People).


She's also been busy with her studies, having just graduated from Georgetown University Law Center in May (per HuffPost). When we do see the president's youngest daughter, she's typically all glammed up, like when she walked the runway at New York Fashion Week in 2016 (per Business Insider).

Catching a glimpse of the law school grad is rare enough, but spotting her without makeup is even rarer — which might be why she's unrecognizable when she's sporting a bare face.

Tiffany Trump is just as beautiful without makeup

With or without makeup, Trump is brilliant and gorgeous, of course, but she does look quite a bit different when she's sporting a more natural look. Her typical look consists of heavily lined eyes, long, full lashes, and a subtle lipstick shade. This look can be seen all over her Instagram page, although Trump's busy schedule has caused her social media presence to suffer — she's only posted a handful of photos in 2020. 


The public may be used to seeing Trump wearing a full face of makeup, but the law grad doesn't need a lot of products to look absolutely stunning. Without makeup, it's evident that Trump either has quite the impressive skincare routine or that she has been blessed with naturally glowing skin because she's just as radiant without any cosmetics as she is with a completely made up face.

Tiffany Trump is not afraid of going without makeup

Trump may usually be seen with makeup on, but that doesn't mean she's afraid to go natural. In 2015, she participated in an art project titled Confessional, by photographer Scott Nathan. In the black and white video, a makeup-free Trump stares intently into the camera for half an hour as jazz music plays in the background. While Trump was clothed for the video, it's shot in a way that implies nudity — clearly the younger Trump daughter is comfortable in her skin.


The video was part of a series featuring more than 100 other women, including Trump's mother, Marla Maples. "The purpose of Confessional was to explore authenticity and inner beauty," Nathan told the New York Post. "To strip away artifice. To destroy the power of objectification with the power of empathy. To let generations of people know that digital and surgical disfigurement is choice, not a requirement."

Nathan described Trump and her mother as "kind" and "down to earth," and revealed that Trump was actually the one who reached out to him about collaborating. She contacted him as a fan of his work, and the two quickly struck up a friendship. After that, he flew to New York to film her for his project.


Tiffany Trump has a small clothing budget

While Trump always looks fashionable and put together — with or without makeup — she doesn't have the same budget for her appearance as older sister Ivanka Trump, who is worth a substantial fortune. Nathan revealed to the New York Post that she didn't even have an outfit to wear to the 2015 Republican National Convention and couldn't find someone to make her a dress, with one designer calling her "radioactive."


"I suggested she ask Ivanka," said Nathan. "I said 'Ivanka has probably one of the great closets in Manhattan. Ask to borrow something.' She was reluctant and embarrassed to ask. She said 'I don't want her to know I don't have any money."

Trump ended up ordering a dress online from Nordstrom Rack. "I couldn't for the life of me understand how no one in that entire family or campaign thought to get Tiffany a full glam team for such an important event," said Nathan. "It was shocking."

Tiffany Trump doesn't budget a lot of money for her hair

While Trump is estimated to be worth millions, she doesn't seem to have a big budget when it comes to her hair or makeup. She and her mother made headlines in 2017 after they asked a hair stylist, Tricia Kelly, to style their hair for Inauguration Day for "exposure." The Washington Post reported that Maples' assistant said the mother and daughter only had $300 budgeted for their hair and makeup. Kelly explained that her rate is higher, but eventually agreed to be paid $200 with an additional $150 going to a makeup artist. This is when Kelly was asked if she and the makeup artist would provide their services free of charge, with the promise of being promoted on Maples' social media.


"I was stunned," said Kelly, who declined the offer. "I told them... I work for a fee, not for free."

She added, "There are people who make far less than they do who pay full price... It seemed like they were trying to see how much they could get for free based on their names."
