Why must you repeatedly create personal attacks?
Are you retarded?
Or do you find yourself fitting snugly into the category I heretofore denounced so scathingly?
Pellejema, pls go.
a) Personal attacks are the best sort of attacks. At least, they're superior to generalising whole groups of people based upon your limited experience!
b) I'm probably not retarded (although I'm probably not the one to judge).
c) I don't believe I fit into that category, just think it's amazing that you would equate 'pretty' with 'slut' so easily and without grounds?
d. Philistine, no.

What has that picture got to do with what you've written If you think the only difference in the 'before' pictures and the 'after' ones is make up, and not extensive plastic surgery (it's a picture from extreme makeover) then you're retarded, brb lying by applying mascara...
The picture is from a US extreme makeover series called 'The Swan', in which "ugly duckling" women were transferred into "swans", and it involved dental work, exercise and yes, cosmetic surgery.
Each week, two women would get the treatment, but only one would be put forward to the final pageant. These women were the winners from each week and were the finalists.
The woman third from right, Rachel, won the final beauty pageant.
So yes, these transformations are nothing to do with make-up, and every bit to do with cosmetic surgery.
As much as people want to slag off girls because they wear makeup, there are some girls who look genuinely amazing (makeup or no makeup - even if they are in the minority). Girls saying otherwise are jealous.
Nobody male or female can look perfect ALL the time. It's just impossible. Asides, I find that women who are constantly doing make-up every 2 minutes are dependant upon their looks to get noticed. Personally, I like girls who make a rare effort, as I would rather that they had a personality and a lot of knowledge so I can have intellectual and informed conversations with them. The majority who are all about the looks are nothing like that and are consequently bland and boring.

You know the girls I'm talking about. The wind blows and their hair stays perfect. Mine frizzes up, blows into my face, into my mouth. They dance at nightclubs, they don't sweat. At all. I dance? I sweat bucket loads, my eyeliner smudges, my foundation runs. They wear 6 inch heels and can walk as well as if they were wearing trainers. Me? I wobble, trip, and can just about manage half a mile per hour. In pictures they look like tanned, glossy godesses, whilst I look like I'm derping even if my face is neutral.
How do they do it? I just don't understand
i like girls with character
fake, plastic makeup heads are as fake as their breasts

OP probably isn't as ugly/ awkward as she thinks too.
Yeah thats probably true. I think people always pick faults in themselves that other people dont. I know I do, i dont stress about it too much but i might think i look bad some days when everyone else probably thinks I look exactly the same as every other day.
I do get a bit jealous of those girls who look perfect most of the time and seem to have just walked out of a photo shoot. Then in a kind of mean way, there are some girls who walk past who show signs of not really taking care of themselves.
If the girl looks great most of the time, then she probably is just naturally pretty/ photogenic or that she spends more than 2 hrs of her day in the bathroom ensuring that she looks good. lol.
I know what you mean! I have no idea how those girls do it. Most people tell me I'm pretty and I guess I have a nice face, but I can't help but look like a mess all of the time - my hair always frizzes out, my foundation never stays nice and my skins ends up looking dull or patchy etc. Whenever I go to gigs, I always end up looking terrible because of all the moshing/dancing etc. yet so many girls look absolutely fine (and yes, they've been dancing a lot too.)
I think it's partly luck (eg. those with naturally clear skin and glossy hair are always going to look more 'perfect'), partly spending a lot of time primping and finding the right products, and partly putting outfits together well, eg. I think a lot of these girls look more polished because they've taken the time to put outfits together and complimented them with polished nails/accessories.
Also, I think a lot of the time these girls just look confident and comfortable, rather than readjusting their clothes all the time/slouching rather than ~walking tall. The way you carry yourself can make you appear more polished.
