Victoria's Secret Angels Without Makeup (Are they still gorgeous?)
Business Insider ^ | 12/04/2012 | Ashley Lutz

Posted on 12/04/2012 5:01:55 PM PST by SeekAndFind

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs tonight, with an estimated production cost of over $12 million. The show has been criticized for promoting unrealistic beauty, especially since a Limited Brands executive famously told the New York Times that fewer than 100 women worldwide were capable of walking its runway.

But many of the models have appeared without makeup, showing what they look like before several stylists have worked their magic.

We compiled side-by-side comparisons of some of the most famous Victoria's Secret models with and without makeup.

See Tyra Banks, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima and more without their makeup.

Alessandra Ambrosio will be gorgeous until I won’t know the difference.

That’s funny. Imagine going to bed with the “after” and wake up next to the “before.”

Except for Adriana Lima, yeah, they’re all still pretty good looking, and I don’t even think Adriana looks that bad.

Most of them still looked pretty good, but that last one looked like a total goober.

Selita Ebanks actually looked better without makeup.

“big, fat stupid looking fish lips.”

We used to call them ‘Liver Lips”. :-)

I HATE ‘EM!

The upper lip is not supposed to be 3 times larger than the bottom lip.

Absolutely ridiculous looking.

Nope a bag won’t do, because I still know they are under there.

Can’t look at ‘em.

West coast fish lips are a deal breaker.

I am a Professional Photographer and see this before and after all of the time.

Pretty amazing actually.

They come over with little or no makeup on and then we have the Hair and Makeup Artists do their magic.

There are a few that look very good and fresh without the makeup but some start out not looking so good and then transform into a beauty.

Yeah, I know the term Liver Lips. I had a rather full lower lip. however, later in life I overheard my hot girl friend telling her friend how sexy my lips were. That made all those years of teasing melt away! Ah yeeessss!

It is surprising how much difference a good photographer will make over a poor one.

I used to work at a Summer retreat which every year had a yearbook. The photographer would take the pics for free and then sell you an assortment if you wanted them.

I can recall for several years this jolly little fat man did them and everyone looked great. Then for another year a different photographer did them and everyone looked awful.

Several years later I returned to that place and a young woman did the pictures. I asked her about the little man who did such a great job. She remembered him and agreed he was good. Hers were also pretty good.

With AUTOTUNE TECHNOLOGY, YOU CAN CREATE a sexy pop star.

SEE This link as to how they can do it.

A dialogue between a modern wannabe popstar and her agent: - Can you sing?

- No.

- No problem! Can you dance?

- No.

- No problem! What are your sizes?

- 90-60-90!

- That will be a golden album! No, even a platinum!

The lips are a little (maybe a little more than a little) over-done. Other than that, without makeup they’re nice looking young women. I’m sure with “average” makeup they’d look pretty good. When the pros get done with them yeah, very photogenic... ;-) But I wonder how they’d look in person with all that makeup on? Like a painted on face? My sweetie looks just fine in faded jeans, white top, and little or no makeup.

Well, a couple of them are OK - the majority NEED LOTS OF MAKEUP.

Hell, my wife is 75, and she's cute as can be with no makeup! And with makeup, she's just as, if not more attractive than many of these!

Of course, I'm just biased... lol

While tats can be removed today, it is a long and painful process. If you ever hear of a company that finds a way to remove them quickly and painlessly, invest in that company. With tats being as ubiquitous as they are, that company's going to be in for large profits. (Too many people acting impulsively.)

Yeah, they are wearing on me, too. Especially on athletes.

(I said TATS, too)

Many, many years ago, I saw Linda Evans in an Indian Wells restaurant and you wouldn’t give her a second look if you saw her walking down the street.

I am almost certain that I once saw Victoria Principal in a bikini. I had no idea who she was at the time other than a gorgeous young girl. This was in the early 60’s in Ft. Walton Bch. Fl and her face (and figure) are still imprinted in my memory.

I notice every one of the ‘before’ pictures is badly illuminated and/or out of focus or shot with a goofy expression. It’s all just click bait, I tell ya’! (and I fell for it).

I've met a few of Victoria Secret's women at publicity events in the mid-1990s. In person, Claudia Schiffer, and Frederique van der Wal were impossibly gorgeous.Claudia was 6'2" with heels. Frederique was sitting at a table in a Dillards(?) dept store. I was walking by, and pretending she was an employee, asked where the men's shoes section was. She laughed and pointed. Her accent and face would melt icebergs. Heidi Klum was butt ugly. Anne Kournakova had on 4 inches of caked makeup on, and all her hair pulled back tight in a bun. It was like they tried to make her look awful. There was a huge line of guys behind a rope in line for an autograph. Some arrogant large promotion lady was being elitist and rude to us trolls; apparently she thought she was more important, and we should bow down.

Flexing her power, she inquired;

"so boys (worthless scum), now that you see Anna in person, don't you just love how she looks?"

"Disappointed. She's not how I pictured her," I replied.

Praytell, why not? I love how she is made up. How DID you picture her?"

"I always pictured her naked."

She huffed off, to a roar from the crowd. Department Store Comedy Improv. Don't waste the opportunity.

LOL - I tell her every day how cute and or how beautiful she is - and how much I love her.

Someone above wanted a picture - but, no picture can capture the true essence of great beauty, but sometimes video/audio can a little bit.

Personality is a great adjunct of beauty - and it's interesting to watch how magnetic she is in a room full of people.

She was a personal friend of Ronald Reagan, who always went to see if she was running the behind-the-scenes at meetings of the parties he attended. They were on a first name basis for years, and Reagan would often stop in the middle of a speech to a group to briefly talk to or about her. While he was in Washington, he often sent little personal messages, cards and invites in the mail.

I hate tatooed females, makes them look like they need a bath all the time.

I am not opposed to a single discreet tatoo, but beyond that I can’t stand them.
