Katie Couric Goes Makeup-Free on Friday’s Show!

Charles Eshelman/FilmMagicCharles Eshelman/FilmMagicKatie Couric is baring it all on her show tomorrow! She's going makeup-free to interview Phoebe Baker Hyde, author of the new book The Beauty Experiment, where she gave up makeup, new clothing, jewelry and more. Instead of applying Katie's beauty staples-like Lancôme concealer, Laura Mercier eye shadows and L'Oréal mascara-the talk show host is simply cleansing her face in the morning with Dove face wash and Lancôme moisturizer.

"I've been on television for a while now, but this is a first for me! No makeup…what am I thinking?" Couric told InStyle.com exclusively. "But the average American woman spends $12,000-$15,000 on beauty and salon treatments annually, not to mention 160 hours every year on primping and grooming. That's an entire week of your life every year! So we thought it would be interesting to do a show like this, and if Phoebe Baker Hyde can do it for a whole year, I can surely do it for an hour, right?"

Tune in to Katie tomorrow, Friday, January 11 to see the the talk show host go au natural!

And tell us: What's your makeup routine?
