the Magic of Make Up

Earlier today, a friend sent me a pic of a doll like girl named Kotakoti..she has flawless skin, bambi eyes, and soft hair.. I really love her face!
Then I went to google her and found out some photos of her BEFORE the flawless make up.


She's a pretty girl but she looks completely different with the perfect make up..
Then I went to search some of female celebrities I adore so much for their beauty..

Drew Barrymore

Not so great without make up, although she's still the same Drew Barrymore..

CL (a band member)

She looks HOT isn't she???
Well, scroll down..


The same person, CL..
Without make up


Now, I love CL, but sans makeup she looks … what’s the word..what’s the word…oh right…UGL…I mean…DIFFERENT.

More example, my beloved Tiffany Hwang, the flawless beauty.. (Member of band Girl's Generation)


Care to look up her appeareance BEFORE debut?

Although the ‘before’ photos are taken from Tiffany’s teenage years, no one goes through puberty and ends up looking like she does now (unless you’re Neville Longbottom). I mean, all I did during puberty was gain weight and get darker.

And please look up this pic below. Before and After picture, taken from a popular Taiwanese makeup show. It is a prime example of how makeup can drastically change a woman’s appearance.


I once heard that in a certain Asian society, an important piece of advice that mothers often give to their sons is to take their girlfriend swimming at some point in the relationship. Studies from gossip circles have shown that such precautions significantly reduce the likelihood of a heart attack after the couple is married. Why is this so? The answer lies in the power of makeup.
Although one third of me feels ill at the objectification of these women and the other third feels indignant at their narcism, the rest of me is screaming: ‘TEACH ME HOW TO DO THIS! TEACH ME!!!’ I do know how to apply make up, but I want to be looking as gorgeous as these women above.

Now you’re probably thinking WTF! Makeup is totally distorting the hunting ground and making victims out of innocent men! And I agree, to an extent. On the other hand though, I believe that men who are superficial enough to like a woman for her looks alone, probably deserve to be ‘tricked’ as such.peace

Oh, one more picture for the bonus

Back!!

Stop this foolishness about your looks. You are a beautiful young woman! It's it and that's that! And when it comes to being friends and knowing someone I would rather know someone like you instead of ANY star!

I can say this about many women on CS. Our own gallery of beautiful women and just to name a few! La Chica, Shay, The one and only Ariel, Golden, Auntie Sassy (Who wear a lot of makeup and I think it loooks great!) and that's only a few of them because our CS girls are HOT LOOKING!

Jadi inget lagu cherry Bell ......

Ed, you re melting me blushing teddybear
cherriebabe
even in these pics, most of them are still wearing foundation, just minus the eyeliner and lip stick/gloss! when i was young and naive i thought beauty or good looking should be a certain way, but as im maturing (rapidly) i see beauty in each person i meet in my day to day life! but what i find ugly is people boasting about it and always want compliments and go out of their way to belittle someone who does not have the same traits as them, thats why beauty is in the eye of the beholder
virgosingle
yes as seen through the botom of a beer glass wave teddybear

Now now.. I wrote this blog because I was shocked seeing how my fave female celebs look like sans make up and also I do this FOR FUN. It's it and that's that. No other intention.
Ed.. It's not that I'm depressed with the way I look or something but it's more about my wish that I could apply such make up on me and making me dastrically different, in a good way, from the way I look right now... And about my conversation with Bambina, how I ended up saying I might need a plastic surgery was because Bambina and I found those women- in the picture Bambina posted-very beautiful and very different after the make over and I asked her if there's such great beauty salon in Indonesia that's able to change our appeareance like that, and she said if there is one (beauty salon that's able to transform people) like that, she would love it and she wants them to apply shading on her body also..and I wanted the same thing also (the body shading and I want them to do that on my arms, thigh, legs etc.. And because there's no such thing-the body shading- I said I might need a plastic surgery. When I was pregnant I gained 35 kilos, although all those fat has gone, but I lie if I say I still look exactly the same with the way I look before I was pregnant. I'm grateful enough that I can loose all those fat I gained though, if I can have my tight body back, I would be a lot happier. teddybear
And Cherrie, that's true, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think those celebs look fabulous with make up. I THINK.. :) and also I THINK they don't look so great with no make up. In addition, I THINK I look quite good with make up but without make up, I don't look that good. That's what I think.. And in case you thought I did that to get compliments..well it never was my intention to do that (in case ya.. :) ). My intention was actually to show people that I'm not ashamed to say that -the same with those girls in these pics above,I look less good without make up.- As I stated before, I know how to apply make up but I wanted to be able to apply these "crazy" make up on myself because in MY eyes, these girls are stunning (after make up).
And mba lavina.. Yes mba.. And so are you, very beautiful and become even more beautiful now after we know each other better because now I know you've got a wonderful heart, you care about me..and that means a lot for me.. I'll see you di bbm lagi ya mba.. Pengen cerita deh.. hugteddybear
virgosingle

Ed1941
Back!!

I said it once and I'll say it again!!! You look just fine! And let me tell you something else. A mother is really special because that baby is part of you. So what if you gained a little weight. Just look at the piece of heaven you brought into this world.

@ Ariel! You deserve it!
cherriebabe

Dear Ed,, you are soooo sweet you know :) thank you and thank you and thank you for saying those sweet words.. teddybear

Ariel, Ed is right, you're sweet and adorable, and also I need to mention my favorite lady, golden.. You've got perfect face and I seriously thought you are at the same age with me. bouquet

Cherrie, I wouldn't call myself paranoid, just that since you wrote that on my blog, I just feel I need to say that laugh also I meantioned the "just in case" thingy laugh laugh
