    I was sent these (1 2 3 4 5) pictures in an e-mail today and there was much debate about whether or not they were photoshop jobs or the real thing.

    I've always said about celebrities that they only look that good because they have thousand-dollar an hour makeup artists working for them. This seems to prove it.

    So what do ye think (especially he girls) can make up change people that dramatically?

    Well up close you can tell when a girl is wearing excessive makeup, i think its horrible, i always go for a girl who i think has natural beauty rather than the skanks u c in town on a friday night who looks rather tasty at 15 feet but when u get up close u realise that shes fecking ORANGE

    No Makeup:definitely better.
    Like A. Kournikova after a quick game - top notch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,813 ✭✭✭sunbeam


    Oh dear. :eek: I feel a lot more radiant now...

    I think some of these images have to have been photoshopped and of course a lot depends on the angle the photos were taken and lighting etc.

    I personally am not a fan of excessive makeup, especially the luminous orange foundation that passes for 'ivory' on most beauty counters...

    i think yur right there. i think whats making them look so drastically different is that their hair is tied back in all the pics. What would be a better comparison is if she had the same style and pose for the first shot and then the same with all the makeup and stuff.
    Also i do think that excess makeup looks nasty too

    Yeah, I couldn't decide if a few were wearing wigs or had new hairdos photoshopped on.

    No.1 seems to have had her hair relaxed/extensions while her makeup was being put on, no.4 had her fringe cut and no.5 had highlights and a possible perm. :p

    A few of them look semi-genuine, but you can see the ones that have been Photoshopped just a little too much.

    Well even if number 4's makeup artist is on a thousand-dollars an hour then she still deserves a payrise! (ie the original face must be a p.shop?)

    Still, out of those 5 I'd only have deemed 1 and 2 as hot (and they still looked good w/o makeup anyway) so I guess it just goes to show ladies that makups not gonna do you much of a favour if you've got nothing to work with from the begining.

    Less is more when it comes to slap IMHO! :)

    ever see jordan without makeup? While I never really found her attractive with makeup - her before and after pics would fit in well with #4

    Gotta be airbrushed.. just a bit too perfect in the end up. I'm sure the make-up helped, but it can't work miracles - no. 4 looked like she'd need putty to even things up.

    So it's back to the old adage about seeing what someone looks like when they step out of the shower...

    TBH: some of the jawlines look changed - but I didn't look too closely


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 965 ✭✭✭DriftingRain


    #1 maybe
    #2 where did dhe get the highlights
    #3 Not the same girl
    #4 WOW
    #5 WOW
    That's all I have to say...These girls have to much time on there hands
    If a guy can't like me without all that then forget him!

    WOW Again!!!

    Could you imagine waking up next to #4 after bringing her home from the pub and spending the night with her.... Doubt you'd ever drink again.

    :: 1 - Same girl, just wearing a wig.
    :: 2 - Same girl, highlights can be half seen in the side pictures.
    :: 3 - Same girl
    :: 4 - Should be shot, but it's the same girl.
    :: 5 - Same girl.

    Yea,., all the same women. 4 and 5 should just be shot, or,.. well, whoever wakes up beside on a Sunday morning should be shot/will shoot themselves.

    I just picked out a couple of the women on that list that I think are hot and I when I saw their 'befores' I had to say they still looked good without the makeup anyway.

    But the most suprising thing is the FRIENDS cast! It's horiffic :( It must be down to years of rehearsing and reciting those terrible scripts.

    Ah c'mon ozwald the cast of friends aren't THAT bad. They're all getting pretty old and everything, but they seem like just bad pictures.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,166 ✭✭✭✭Sangre


    Not to mention they're compare pictures of them when they were younger and with makeup


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 537 ✭✭✭Oswald Osbourne


    Yeah in fairness regarding those Friends pictures they definetly are the two extremes. Tho that said (and I haven't seen a new ep of the show in years) you CANNOT tell me that Phoebe currently looks like her 'before picture' when she's filming? So I don't think aging can be the total explaination?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,552 ✭✭✭✭GuanYin


    Angelina Jolie looks great in both pics!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,680 ✭✭✭Tellox


    theres a bit of exaggeration going on with some of the pictures... like lisa kudrow,the picture of her is a bad picture,then it had the quality lowered,then it was tinted grey-ish. And its compared to an absolutly stunning picture of her.

    i think whats making them look so drastically different is that their hair is tied back in all the pics.

    eh yeah.. that and the plastic surgery between shots!

    make up is great ... it hides hangovers .. lack of sleep... it is my sunshine during the winter months! It is a skill aswell ... an art form... an extension to your clothes and style

    but I agree ... these pictures are scary... a lil bit of makeup goes a long way... but alot of make up scares men away!

    der is no way these pictures were merely a make up job!
