Full title: How would you look after a month with no cosmetics? We challenged one woman to ditch her entire beauty routine. The results were, to say the least, revealing...

I have resolved to forgo make-up entirely for a whole month.

If you read the entire article, girlfriend is fairly high maintenance. Right down to monthly microdermabrasion and eye brow threading. Her at home cosmetic choices are also extremely high end as well. I guess the “chemist shops” mass market stuff isn’t good enough.

She also odd things like NOT removing nail polish and going on “holiday” with a bikini but NOT waxing or shaving and the wondering why she got stares? Really...ever hear of a one peice?

All in all a weak peice.

You are a guy & yet you nailed it perfectly! If I don’t FEEL pretty, clean, & smell good I look horrible. For me & for many women being well groomed is our armour to face the world.

I mean that in the most positive way too. I think making yourself as attractive as possible is a gift you give to the people you run into.

A large part of difference is the attitude and the proximity. The camera is much closer (making her look larger). Her demeanor communicates depression.

Yep. If they'd used the same focal length and distance, and if she had the same facial expression as the first shot... It would not look like such a dramatic change. She's a pretty girl, and it shows through even without makeup, IMHO.

Beauty is a projection of self love

If you Love Yourself, it will shine through

I’ve known many women,
gorgeous on the outside and empty as a tomb within;
plain as a mud fence and gold to the core

I’ll take the latter anytime
Learned that lesson @ tender age of 16

One who Loves themselves, can Love others in great bounty
One who is empty within, will be empty without

If you depend on others attention for your own self image,
you are a setup for failure

About the same. Makeup is just shoe polish.

One of the top wish list items on the ladies list for deployment packages is “scented lotion.”

Also in the photo on the right she's not wearing make-up.

Almost no 39 year old men need viagra.

Care to make a better analogy?

It looks like she hasn’t washed her hair for a month
also. Pretty frightening.

At least they kept the lighting and clothing similar between the two although the lighting is designed in both to reveal texture .. not removing the remnants of the nail polish is wrong.. should be on or off ,, not ragged. As noted by others attitude/lack of smile is a big factor here.

The photos remind me of those stupid weight loss before and afters.

The chubby woman has messy clothes, uncombed hair, no makeup, her chest is sunken, and her posture if terrible, and she is frowning. After she loses 15 pounds, she has had a total makeover including new clothes, is standing up nice and straight, and is wearing a lovely smile.

So cliche.

Actually, the lighting looks different, the color balance, or in the latter pic looks a bit flat and “flourescent” that makes anybody look bad, or at least worse.

Getting old sucks, tho consider the alternative...

Not guilty ... especially in the (before) picture to the left.
Slightly guilty ... still hittable ... in the picture to the right.
I'm easy ... ;)
