I’m continuously fascinated by the after effects of Makeup and Photoshop on a person. Not because I want to highlight the wrongs in doing such things (as in concealing or retouching the reality, hence deceiving the world), but because I always keep my makeup to a minimum (read zero makeup) and I’m really not good at anything makeup – related.
So here’s Olivia Wilde, the new Hollywood darling, gracing the Marie Claire August 2011 cover as opposed to her every day look, without professional makeup or digital enhancements. Do you favor her cover look, fully knowing that it’s a distorted reality, just to preserve her “doll”-ish fabricated images? Or do you embrace her bare faced, natural look, enthusiast about her being a normal people, like every one of us? (photos via 1, 2)
