How different do you reckon all those celebs look without their makeup?

And what's the story with Christina Aguilera I hear she really piling on the pounds these days?

    I stick with what I've said in the past: Of all women I've seen with and without makeup, either I knew them or only in photos, there's no one that looks better with makeup. They all look worse.

    I was sent anm interesting link a bit ago- a website which shows just what they can do with airbrushing technology.

    I wish I could find it, they took 15 years off the model.

    I remember Avril Lavigne looking like a right granny with no make-up on.

    Apparently Christina Aguilera is putting on the weight, hoping to turn it into muscle, to give herself more energy for her tour. As she was never as fit before, like Britney Spears.

    I mean seriously, I felt sorry for the lass when I seen it put all over the magainze cause they seena bit of flab as she was 'sitting' down. Ya can't win, like, can ya?

    Look at Geri Halliwell. The girl couldn't win, She was too fat with spice girls. Then she started the yoga. Then she got too skinny for peoples liking.

    if you'd read the thread, you'd find i was actually complimenting her make-up artist for being a darn genius.

    if said make-up artist is reading. i love you. come live with me and do my make-up.

    is this thread about girls trying to help their self esteem, and actually ive seen quite a few girls without makeup, and well there is such a fing as looking great without having the most amazing seeming skin etc etc

    its called 'not being fooled by media into thinking what a hot girl is'

    a girl without maekup can be just as beautiful and/or sexy as a girl with makeup, in fact even more so! :D

    well of course they can, all the link is doing, is showing that not even the celebrities are flawless. women think they have to be perfect because these are the images of perfection weve seen, but what the link shows is that noone is that flawless. Theyre all digitally enhanced.

    Exactly. Do you realize how many of the psychlological problems that women (and men) have in our time are mainly because of this lie?

    The "natural" look is wonderful. It just takes hours to get it right:D

    As for the two Avrils, the not-made-up one is prettier. Because it's who she really is.

    If anybody is thinking of how they can achieve similar results in Photoshop, then don't ask me, I haven't a clue! ...However, there's a program called Neat Image that does some amazing stuff to your photos automatically. Just try it with a good, clear, sharp, detailed, portrait photo of someone, and see how amazing the transformation is. A quick Googling for Neat Image will find you a site to download it from. It's shareware, but quite a lot of its functionality is available to use without paying.
