I had my hair and makeup professionally done for work on the promotional circuit for the movie White Noise. It was amazing. And I've had glamor shots done...would love to find another one of those deals. For about $100 you get your hair and makeup and several wardrobe changes. Then of course you can buy the pics. Do they do that in Canada? Or was it just a passing fad from the 90's?
Most of the girls were not bad-looking, it's just that they didn't take slightest trouble to make themselves look good. I detest this kind of laziness in women. We are supposed to be beautiful, because we are supposed to be beautiful. Or at least good-looking. It takes some trouble to achieve it, but once you get used to taking care of your appearance, it's not hard at all. Plain laziness lead them to looking like they did on the "before" pictures.
Oh yes, if make up can transform women like that, then a little transformation on men could only help matters. The make up seems to move the cheek highlights up a bit, cover up any marks like freckles, make the eyes sparkle and, generally speaking, take a number of years off women. Why shouldn't men take a few years off so women appreciate them a bit more too?
Anyone see the Real Beauty (external - login to view) ad by Dove? You can watch all the "modelling" in action, its truly incredible.
And pluck their eyebrows too. I have thought this for quite some time now, most actors wear makeup to appear better looking, our poor cultural inertia keeps us from embracing this.
why are all of you so interested in making yourselves into what you are not?
makeup is a lie. Sometimes very pretty, and I have no objection to using it on occasion, but seriously, to suggest that it's somehow wrong for a woman not to use it is just plain crazy.
