Subject: The power of makeup

This topic has been discussed before. I'm just wondering what are your thoughts on the article itself...
 

Stop the Beauty Bullying: Let's Embrace Each Other, Flaws and All

Photo Credit: Alexandra Butler Makeup Artistry

As a full-time makeup artist, I use my personal Instagram and Facebook accounts to showcase some of my work. Recently, the photo above featuring a makeover I performed on one of my clients has been floating around on blogs and social media along with very hurtful and negative comments. The makeover has been called “deceiving,” “misleading,” and even “scary.” I have also been accused of using Photoshop while others have suggested that the woman in the after picture is not the same person. Really?

It is my job to apply makeup to enhance my clients’ natural beauty and make them look their best for special occasions. In no shape or form am I in the business to “trick others" or make my client appear to be someone she is not. This particular client has very noticeable acne scarring which has made her very apprehensive about walking out of the house without makeup on. When she first voiced her concerns to me, as a makeup artist, I wanted her to walk away appearing to have flawless skin. However, even with the skin imperfections, my client is beautiful. I created a look to conceal her blemishes and then used simple enhancements to bring out her natural features.

In response to many of the negative comments, I do not agree that wearing makeup is “deceiving.” Is it deceiving when a chemotherapy patient wears a wig? Is it deceiving when a woman wears Spanx to make her clothes look better? Is it deceiving when a person has vitiligo and wants to even their skintone? The answer is no. We all want to look our best. Everyone has flaws and almost everyone has blemishes, and the way that my client has been ridiculed and picked at is absurd. No one has the right to point fingers and name call especially when my client cannot control the fact that she has a hereditary skin condition. (For the record, my client has tried several acne treatments and is currently undergoing professional help to improve her skin.) My client has been ridiculed for walking out of the house with blemishes all over her face and now she is being accused of “deception” for covering those blemishes. How unfair!

Makeup is an art. A true makeup artist is able to apply makeup in such a seamless way that the contours, highlights, color correction, and color enhancements bring out the best in a person's face and compliment their every feature. I have worked very hard on this craft and have truly found my niche in makeup. I am extremely blessed to do what I am passionate about for a living and have had many great experiences with all types of clients. It breaks my heart to hear such harsh feedback on the photos above via Instagram and Facebook. My clients are real women with real feelings just like you. These women could be your mother, wife, sister, daughter, grandmother, aunt, or cousin—or even you. Would you want someone to make nasty remarks about your loved one or rude comments about you?

We need to be very mindful of our words and how we use them in the real world and online. Instead of using social media to tear each other down for having flaws, let’s be positive and build each other up. All of the mean-spirited remarks are a form of online bullying and it needs to stop. Allow makeup artists to do our job without trying to put down our talent or even worse, take credit for work you didn’t do (many artists have reposted the photo above claiming it to be their work). If you see a makeover that looks amazing, in whatever form, compliment the work and keep your negative remarks to yourself. Use your words to uplift and make someone else feel beautiful just as you would want someone to do for you or someone you love.

Yep, she is really skilled. I do wonder what it looks like in person for the second girl because it's obvious she's had a lot of nose contouring. The first one, not so much. It's kinda sad because you can see the prettiness even with the acne marks
 
Edited: Not true, now that I look closer, the first one has had some contouring as well. It's just more dramatic in the second pic

@tasty: Yeah, I don't have bad acne either, it's mostly a pimple here and there and it's under control but I've had kp for the longest, so I know what it's like to have a skin disorder that you can't fix no matter how many derms you go to or regimens you try

Can't say men are 100% to blame
 
Yeah, I have to agree with that. They're part of the problem but it's actually women that are the most critical of other women's looks.

she made them look really good and they were already attractive, beneath the acne.

there is a difference between needing make up b/c of skin conditions and those who see flaws that don't exist and can't leave the house without it piled on.  some people look like clowns.

She was medium brown with a whole bunch of Mac that oxidized red I'm guessing.
I remember her looking really nice and put together but with a terrible pink tint.

Surprisingly those two things coexisted lol

I would say that too but it's hard to fight something that is in the human psyche now. It's taught through images we see on tv, magazines, etc. And it's been going on for centuries really.

I'm reading Sister Citizen now and I think Melissa Perry is on to something regarding the psychological effects of shaming. It is very pervasive, almost systemic in cultures not just in the US but around the world. And maybe our part is that women buy into it.

That subject interests me Patti.
Specifically where it concerns the black community well I won't delve that far ill just keep it to things I've personally observed where I'm from.

Lots of folk see shame as not a negative trait to have.
I remember my great grandma saying do not trust a person that cannot be shamed.
And I hear variations of this sentiment all the time.

Ok this is an entirely different subject but I was waiting in the records office to add a class .
I sat and waited patiently .
This white guy comes through the hallway loudly complaining about a professor having a vendetta against him.
He makes small talk with me and says he was about to stretch.

So he gets in the middle of the floor with advisors and counselors having to step to the other side bc he is stretching for his life guard session.

It blew my mind I would be so shamed to make another person uncomfortable in that way.
He caused a spectacle of himself.

I thought to myself about white men thinking the world is their oyster .

I would just never do such a thing .


Ok that's off topic but it was interesting to me

u mean folks went easier or were more understanding about the skin issues and how they looked without make up.... on the white guru's channels as opposed to the black ones?  I've seen it and I believe it.  Folks have gone in on Destiny and JJ on here.

I used to have bad acne and I think it was mostly due to age, as I got older it went away and now I've been using a variety of products instead of a regime like ProActive, etc. I think MUA are "artist" skin is their canvas. I love playing in my makeup and contouring and highlighting. I do think the ladies in the pictures should really focus on the care of their skin and not try to hide behind it, too much make up can cause pore clogging and make skin worse

I understand why they wear makeup and don't blame them. I would too if my skin looked like that as I wouldn't feel comfortable going out in public like that.

However, it also has to be accepted that people may not find you attractive sans the makeup and if and/or when they see you without it on. Yes, underneath the acne you may be a beautiful person, however, you are using makeup to portray something that isn't real no matter how little or how much you use. When you have makeup on, that's not how you actually look even if you did just brighten up the corners of your eyes. People have the right to be shocked at the contrast. I just don't feel they have the right to go in the way they do on other people's actual looks.

With that said, this person is amazingly skilled. She does a great job.

For instance, I remember one of my psychology professor's speaking about their wife. He said told us how he had a conversation with his wife where she asked him if he saw her without makeup when they were first met, would he have courted her. He told he no. He told us it was a while before he saw her without makeup and he really liked her and just had to get used to her real face.

IC.  Iono......I think that these days it's kinda in to bash females for wearing make up.  With this whole barbie thing that has taken off in these last years.  With dudes gettin' "fooled" by well done tranny's. 
 
Females get judged for wearing make up and dudes are scared that females are dudes because the make up look too smooth.  Iono....

Ppl act like make up just started. No maybe make up as we know it but even in the beginning women have been crushing berries to add a little color to their lips and cheeks.

A lot of gurus...well the one's I watch, also have "My everyday makeup routine" videos where the look is very neutral/natural. With an exception for the one's who work as makeup artists and/or at makeup counters, they don't wear those looks on a daily.

My MUFE HD is my holy grail. I do like MAC Studio Fix with a fluffy brush when I just want a little evening out.

A lot of people seem to like MUFE but I just can't find my shade in that brand. The ones I've tried are even more reddish than MAC...

Spritz your face and/or brush with Fix+ then apply MV and see how it works for you.

eta: And MAC is launching some new foundation shades in March or April....I think

Love MUFE HD,  I'm now wearing Revlon color stay.  I want to try Chanel next.  Depends on who actually carries my shade. Don't really care for MAC.  Overhyped IMO.  and like the ladies said...errybody's a NW45.

i agree with what she's saying, women sound lost as hell tearing down other women and buying into that false advertising mess.

i read sister citizen this summer. i want to re read it again. i was just in a rush to get what others were on about that i never really took it in.

jolie have you ever tried nacara or vashanti? how you like them? are there any other canadian ethnic brands you know about?

I feel like I'm sleeping on black opal and iman. I've been saying I was going buy either since grade 10.

I think I have a sample of fix + somewhere in my closet. hope it works. it takes so damn long to set an dry. I feel like pocahontas and em smearing war paint on my face with my brush because I can see the strokes.

You are. Iman Luxury Radiance Liquid and BO True Color Liquid Foundation are bomb.com.

BO had a foundation very much like Mat Velvet several years ago. Identical coverage, identical finish, damn near identical packaging and it was only 8-9 bucks. I loved that stuff. Then they DC'd it.Disapprove

I will always sleep on Iman as long as I can't try it and return it if the shade is off. Only the stores that don't have a try and return policy are the ones that carry her makeup line

Those stores (minus Ulta, bc I haven't seen one here in NYC. We have Sephora) don't take back open makeup. I remember associates at Walgreenes told me that they don't do that but would make an exception if I had an allergic reaction to it

@Scorpio: I have never had a problem getting a refund at Walgreens.

http://www.walgreens.com/topic/shophelp/returns_help_main.jsp

Q: What if I need to return cosmetics or electronics?

A: Returns for cosmetics or electronics are handled at the discretion of the store manager, usually in the form of a Walgreens gift card.

That's not a concrete policy like CVS or Rite Aid, it's up to manager discretion and I guess that manager didn't want to do it. Let CVS start to carry, I'll try it, because around me the only places I have access to hat sell Iman are Walgreens, Duane Reade and Target. The nearest Walmart is in Long Island and u need a car to get there. So that's a no-go

Right now I'm mixing two shades of Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (Caramel and Cocoa). I was really into MAC for a while. I mixed two shades with them as well. I went through quite a few compacts of Studio Fix but it did me dirty in pictures. I like the liquid though.

If Dream Matte didn't rub off, it would be a fav. (great for pics). But Revlon liquid combo/oily Colorstay works then Covergirl Queen liquid in 725 Golden Honey or Maybelline Fit Me in 350 or 355 (depending on the season) are also good
