Beauty RANTS!



Personally, I hate seeing before and after pictures!

We know you are great at what you do...but subjecting your client to open ridicule is just what I don't understand ( ...I am guilty too but I have come to realise that once you are good at something, you need not try to justify it).

Most of these pictures mean no harm initially but once it gets to the wrong hands, they kinda take the whole thing out of proportion.

Trust my brothers...

"First date, take her swimming"

"We must sue all makeup artists for defamation of appearance"

"The evil women do..."
It is so bad now, guys are taking notes!...Should really be the "girl code" uno...

Just stop it!

Makeup should enhance your beauty not alter it!

If you have noticed, photographers HARDLY post unretouched pictures. It just doesn't sit well with most of them.

I have a couple of photographer friends and I've been able to understand that they themselves do not
like when MUAs(Makeup Artists) do that (before and after shots ie)... But hey, you can't knock a Makeup Artist's hustle eyy..

Anyway, I decided to take a whole new dimension to this topic of ranting, I put it up on my PM on BBM ("Hey ladies, I need your help! Most annoying makeup trends! eg before/after photos, overly structured brows, etc" ) and awaited responses.

I decided to drop it just the way I received it from the respondents (....straight from the heart, lol)

I picked 3 people though, because I KNOW, if I paste the conversation of everyone that contributed, you people will feel somehow.

Let's go!

*deep sigh*

I think one common thing from above is eye brows (thankfully, there's a post on that!==> here)

Another one will be highlighting and lowlighting (contouring), I'd have a tutorial on that ON Saturday! (even though I had something else in mind, I think that's highly requested)

Over to you guys!

What beauty trends do you dislike??

What should they stop??

Your experiences perhaps! Let's laugh it out!...Be sure I'd post it up soon,lol!

Have a beautiful day Gorgeous!
