In this gallery we see some unsettling evidence of the enormous power of makeup, in many cases approaching and exceeding the power of Photoshop, with the all the more terrifying prospect that it is an illusion which can be carried off in the flesh. These ladies probably have more need than most of skill with cosmetics, it has to be said. Images were seized from the Vippers.
This gallery is frankly rather disturbing; as you’re finished you may want to look at some miko, or schoolgirls or something else, and so sooth yourself? I leave you with the thought that between makeup and Photoshop, how much of these idols are real?
