Beauty or Beast? Highlighting begs an answer

Maybe it’s the Anthropologist in me but I see a tree. I also see a tribal bushman with gaunt eyes whose failed hunting and gathering mission let his hunger down. But I do NOT see a woman in there. Sorry Kim K. This is not makeup.

T his is a smattering of yellow muck that would have stirred a lot of laughter back in my makeup academy days. Yet the world’s curiosity has been fed. Every one from gum-smacking pre-teens to 50 something botox addicts are furiously buying whatever thick paste youtube professes can conjure up that look. And what’s worse, they are rendering their own version in video for all the world to see. It’s like youtube has been invaded by the living dead…no one knows whose face belongs to thousands of youtubers buried under all that goop. I just want the insanity to stop. I can’t waste energy detailing step-by-step what’s wrong with this phenomenon. That is dignifying the look too much. It deserves so much less. I hope that if you are reading this blog, you’ve kept your receipt for whatever product you bought after Kim lead you down the wrong path. If you haven’t guessed…this is one of my celebrity makeup MISSES!
