We all know how much I love makeup…this is where my blog started from: my love of shoes and lip gloss. Which has now developed into matte lipstick (what…I don’t even know who I am anymore). There’s lots of extreme makeup transformations out there and we would all like to dabble in a bit of contouring and highlighting (just me? I dabble!) but some people have gone to serious extremes and the internets are telling their entire story. Yes I know there are some celebrities out there that are like whoa without makeup on and loads of Photoshop…and not in a good way. But there are seriously some people who wouldn’t be identifiable if they took their makeup off.
So to these folks I ask how? And why? And how much? As in how much makeup does it take to completely change your face? People, every day makeup and special FX makeup are two different things and I feel like some people are toeing that line. It ain’t even a fine line folks! I mean I don’t think it is I think they are two very different makeup techniques don’t you?
So I go on the internets and I find lots of examples. There are some serious before and after pictures all over Pinterest and Instagram. It’s so hard for me to believe that these pictures are of actual people. I’m speechless. We’ve all seen this contouring tutorial right? This one is subtle compared to others.
Guys please stop! God forbid something happened to you how is your mama going to be able to identify the body if you look nothing like your all made up photo? Also, how you going to find a good guy when you lying to him about what you look like? Leaving makeup on the clean pillow cases because you don’t want him to see you without it? Missing out on events because it takes you forever to get ready. You all like…
But I got to make my eyebrows and eyeliner match! No puedo…I just can’t. This is not how we should live life. I love makeup and I have a collection to prove it but let’s limit our every day makeup to 5 minutes. I challenge you to 10 minutes tops! If you can’t put a full face on in ten minutes you need to get your life together. What do you say ladies?
