LOL, wow. i was shocked. but lighting does play a big part. and are they photoshopped at all? the cheeks of a few of the girls are so much larger. maybe thats the illusion of the makeup, but it doesn't seem like it
click on the link to see more, it's not that crunchroll supports it, they just took it from the another stereotypical blog site.
anyway, lol theses are mostly aunties trying to look in their 20's-30's.
Okay, so make-up enhances their beauty a lot apparently. Look, I'm a Chinese (American), but still full Chinese and I don't look that much different with or without make-up. It's all about a natural look, and not trying to go crazy...
so true, i remember when i met my cousin for the first time in 2 years and her face didnt change at all. but she didnt need makeup. she used skin care products. same thing with my mom, shes 42 and looks 35.
see this is why you go to her home at 7:30 in the
morning . it save the disappoint of find out after being married... that is if your that type person and fail to see what is really under all that make up...
It's very interesting to see the power of make-up. These women pre-make-up look real. Normal. They're unflattering images, but the make-up, lighting and camera angles are only accentuating what is already there.
I agree that it that some of the pictures don't look related. Especially the fourth one down, make up may make a woman look younger sometimes but thats ridiculous. 2nd ones fine 1st one is questionable and 3rd and 5th are acceptable.
Why is everyone so offended? Really think about it. Are they all Chinese? Apparently yes. Are they all showing before and after pics with and without makeup? Yes. Ok then. The title is factual. It is exactly what it says it is. :-)
That's just very rude. How could people judge their actual faces as ugly? Or at least portray them as ugly people.. if that was made by an asian, shame on him!! Please do not be dictated by the western standards of beauty..
The sad thing about these before and after is that they take the worts and best poses to give contrast. only 2 really look like the same person.
To give a true contrast they should take pictures of the exact same pose,
Also, I agree with X_LoveHolic_X. There is definitely no need to specifically label these pictures Chinese or any other nationality. I suggest that crunchyroll think about what people they could offend by posting these types of photos.
I find these pictures offensive. And I think they are sending the wrong message: that girls need to wear make up in order to look pretty. I know a lot of girls, Asians, Caucasian, etc that do not wear make up and look amazing.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the apparently undisputedly positive effect on the looks of the wearer is subjective and based purely on traditional ideas promoted by the media of what constitutes 'beauty'.
