(supernatural beauty) is a project from Elle Spain magazine featuring twelve (Spanish) beautiful women completely without makeup and without Photoshop enhancement; four of them appear on the covers. It's being picked up by other websites
, but so far only in Spanish; I couldn't find any coverage in English. Meanwhile, the US version
of Elle has the usual makeup/photoshop enhanced cover models.
The phrase on the web page, "ELLE defiende a la mujer sin maquillaje, sin retoques y sin miedo", translates to "Elle defends/supports the woman without makeup, without retouching, and without fear".
Needless to say, in the phrase "(Spanish) beautiful women", the first adjective makes the second one superfluous. Also (and I feel petty for saying this), no mention is made of past plastic surgery, Botox, etc., so we don't really know how natural any of this is, but it's still something.
