I’m not sure how seriously women compare themselves to what they see in the media (magazines, television, etc) but to me it looks like a bunch of lies. I ran across these Before and After Makeup photos (some photoshop too I’m guessing), and have seen how photography and camera tricks can make you “lose 20 lbs” in the same photography Before and After session. For the benefit of the doubt, let’s say the “Transformations” below are legitimately just makeup and hair. If you were a dude who picked up one of these ladies in a dimly lit bar, looking like they were super hot, and woke up the next day to the real them, what would you think? On the flip side, we do like our ladies looking made up, and when you’re married you’ve seen the best and worst of your partner. My wife looks good on a Sunday morning without makeup, but she looks hot when she’s made up for a function, so it’s no wonder she get’s hit on accordingly when dressed up at work marketing events. Anyways, enjoy.
