What sorcery is this? :eek:
Ah, the horrors of makeup. A layer of makeup thicker than decoration on a cake.

I absolutely hate it. Granted, I think she looks *almost* gorgeous in the dolled-up photo, but at the same time, the thick makeup is a major turnoff. You can tell every single pore has been covered in makeup, and that's disgusting. Sure it's nice to see it from time to time, but to live with the constant dichotomy of someone's appearance, I wouldn't be able to stand it.

Accentuating is one thing, but a complete makeover? For a one-off, cute, but if it's constantly needed, you need to do something else. (unless you're in stardom/the media, for which it is a necessity mandated by the law of media... and high intensity lights) For that photo, I think a light touch of makeup and the artistry around the eyes to draw them out, is more than sufficient.

Search makeup before and after on google, and see how often we are fooled into believing how amazing and "perfectly" beautiful women can be.
I for one love natural beauty. Granted, I am not attracted to the "before" photo. That "girl next door" look, that's perfection. Waking up to that everyday as opposed to waking up to someone who only looks beautiful with makeup, that's the dream.
Katy Perry without makeup is sort of like that, IMHO. Not the dolled up perfection she has to wear for media appearances, but her daily self, what you'd wake up to, that's life, that's natural. And still an attractive face. (there are a million such examples, she just stuck out in my mind)

You can laugh about that, but .... in Europe we have Ryan Air. Cheap flights between most (large) cities in Europe. And they are cheap. Sometimes a lot cheaper than 40 bucks. You can fly from one side of Europe to the opposite site for as low as 20 euros sometimes.
