When Lady Gaga debuted her new "nymph" persona last week, the world was a-twitter over her lack of face beads or pink hair or pointy cheeks. "She's not wearing any makeup!" crowed several blogs, but in truth she was just wearing less makeup than usual. The October cover of Harper's Bazaar gives a close-up of this nearly unrecognizable Gaga, who is made up with pearly eye shadow, bleached eyebrows, and face powder, but is described in the press release as "basically barefaced."
