Khloe Kardashian gets a make-under and opens up about the downsides of fame for Harper’s Bazaar. For the shoot, the magazine says Kardashian “agreed to wear minimal makeup, a natural nude nail lacquer, and no shoes.” The stripped-down look matches the accompanying story, in which the reality star lays bare her insecurities and her complaints about her ridiculously famous life. Check out the highlights and photos below!

Khloe On Being Close With Her Family
“Most people see [their families] on holidays. We see each other every single day because it’s part of our job. I love that, I really do. Our show has brought us closer together and I’m able to witness moments I never would if we all had jobs in our individual spaces.”

Khloe On Agreeing To Do “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”
“Kourtney and I didn’t want to do the show. “We weren’t anti the show, but we were so obsessed with our clothing store [DASH], and I couldn’t imagine having to give that up.” The family was able to feature the boutique on the show, and the rest is history. “That’s why season one is so brilliant — because we didn’t really care. Kourtney and I would say anything and do anything. We didn’t realize it was going to be so big. Nobody did.” Kardashian later notes, “If I wanted to [leave ‘KUWTK’], I could, but I love doing our shows — it’s the media scrutiny I don’t like.”

Khloe On Being The “Real” Sister
“People think I’m more ‘real.’ I’m the first person to say if I didn’t do something right or that I could have done something differently. I share so much, maybe more in-depth than my sisters, and I think people appreciate that.”

Khloe On The Downsides Of Kardashian Fame
“The thing I dislike the most [about being a Kardashian] is the judgment on us. If I want to go out with a group of friends, it’s never as harmless as that. There has to be some story the next day that I’m dating somebody.”

“Our family has way more information about [us] online than any other, and it’s always so bizarre when you meet someone and see their perception of you. Sometimes I feel like I have to prove people wrong, and that’s weird. It’s easy to meet people, but you don’t know if you’re meeting them for the right reasons. Knowing who to trust is hard.”

Khloe On Kendall And Kylie Dealing With Fame
“Kendall handles it so incredibly well, but I think Kylie — she’s a lot like me, just wanting to hang out with her friends and do things any normal 18-year-old can do, like go to the mall. Usually [18-year-olds] are only subject to judgment within their own circle. For Kylie, things are thrown on the front page on so many news outlets, but no one stops to think: this is an 18-year-old’s life. She’s just trying to figure it out.”

Khloe On Dating In The Spotlight
“I used to wonder why celebrities only dated celebrities, but when you’re in it you understand. You feel a little safer. If you’re seen with someone on your first date, you’re automatically getting married the next day. It’s so extreme! So when you’re two celebrities, you can keep it really quiet at first, to see if you even like each other. Dating someone in your world is a little easier.”

Khloe On Her Insecurities
“I like to say I don’t care what people say about me, but that’s not true. Not wanting to go to certain places because I wonder what will be written about me the next day — I hate that I carry that with me.” On reading her Instagram comments, Kardashian notes, “I think people who say they don’t are lying. What’s sad is that I can read 10 beautiful comments and then one bad one and I’m like, ‘Ugh!'”

Khloe On Using The Gym As A Refuge
“My home [with Lamar Odom] was dark and toxic,” she says. “At the time, my family didn’t know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I’ve kept. I just needed a place to go.” Kardashian ruled out Kris Jenner’s house because “she would start asking too many questions,” as well as a hotel because “the paparazzi would see me and it would look shady.” But with the gym, “They had a TV and I could watch ‘The Real Housewives’ on an elliptical. No one talked to me. I loved that solitude.”

Khloe On Losing Weight
“I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I’ve lost weight. Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn’t even that crazy big!” And now that those other stylists want to dress her? “I’m just like, ‘F*ck you. I’m not going to reward your bad behavior.'”
