I just came across a video by directors and artists Lernert & Sander called Natural Beauty. It's a short film that documents the application of 365 layers of make-up to the face of Belgian fashion model Hannelore Knuts. Ladies, this is what a year of painting your faces looks like. I'm not the make-up wearing type, and after nearly vomiting while watching this video, I'm quite pleased to stay make-up free. Seriously.
Women are naturally beautiful creatures. Stop gooping up your faces with gunk to impress objects of your affection or to create the illusion of perfection on a skin-deep level. If the evenness of your skintone is a factor in how someone views your character, something is outrageously wrong.
