Sometimes body modification is just a way of telling yourself “this is still my house, I paint the walls and and I hang the art because I’m the one who owns it”

Same with makeup.

Men having opinions on women’s fashion/makeup/grooming when they literally define masculinity by not caring about those exact subjects, and actually pride themselves on it, is so fucking ridiculous.

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. 
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.

During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes. (x)

I put these together because I am sick of reading girls putting themselves down on tumblr because they don’t look like any of these women. There are things called high end cosmetics and photoshop that make these women look perfect by hiding their blemishes and wrinkles. The truth is they can afford far better makeup than you. The stuff they use is almost magic. And we all know the things they can do with photographs these days. Strip all that away and they’re just like you. You also have to figure how many of these women had cosmetic surgery. There is no so such thing as a perfect and flawless looking person.

You know what’s worse about this though? We see these pictures under captions like ‘SHOCKING pictures of celebrities without makeup’, and ‘Ten HORRIFYING photos of celebs’. And you know what that teaches us? That teaches us that a woman who isn’t immaculately made up is something to be feared and reviled.

Frankly, I’m not sure which is more more worrying: the idea that we should all strive to achieve unattainable aesthetic perfection, or the idea that we are unacceptable in our natural state.

(And as an endnote, you can be sure as hell that nobody’s kicking up this kind of fuss about male celebrities looking normal)

District 11

District 12

So Covergirl has created a line of makeup for the new Hunger Games movie, and made a look for each of the Districts. The result is pretty awesome. Pretty sure I would rock 12 without a thought and District 4 just looks outstanding. 

These all look cooler than any of the tributes do in the parades. Maybe CG should be the next tributes’ stylists.

^^^SERIOUSLY i am so peeved by the design in these movies and i am glad i’m not the only one noticing it.

also: not only props to CG for great original designs but also for KNOWING HOW TO MARKET IT?!

you have a whole world built on selling kids murdering eachother and whoever’s in charge of marketing doesn’t really get it

So as soon as I get home I take my clothes off and lock myself in my room
but today my asshole little brother decided to barge in and he saw my tattoo
image (my dad doesn’t know about it) and he threatened to tell my dad

Being the makeup junkie that I am, I ran to my makeup trunk and pulled out 2 concealers, brown eye shadow, bb cream, and powder foundation and went to work
image
I came out and he was like “That was Sharpie? You’re so lame.”

Joke’s on you motherfucker.

The monster strikes back against his maker! Well, sort of… This is Boris Karloff goofing around with legendary makeup artist Jack Pierce, who created the iconic grotesque looks of Frankenstein’s monster, his bride, Imhotep the mummy, and Gwynplaine (from The Man Who Laughs, the inspiration for The Joker), among others.
Also note that this footage was not colorized; the makeup for Frankenstein’s monster, though photographed in black-and-white, really was this shade of green.

The hilarity of women spending (on average) $1,000 a year on beauty products is that the whole idea that women are given much of a choice whether or not to wear makeup.

Plenty of women choose to not wear makeup. But we pay the price - literally. 

Women who wear makeup are paid more money than women who don’t: they’re seen as more competent. We’re inundated with images of women wearing makeup - even the images of women going “natural” the way straight men protest they REALLY like involves a level of artistry with makeup because natural just means “flawless without me having to think about you trying”.

Performing patriarchal accepted femininity takes time and money. This isn’t a coincidence. Women exist in a patriarchy to be fucked by men. This is the idea of patriarchal womanness - how do you appeal to men. How do you prove it.
