    I used to think you couldnt polish a turd and some girls who are wearing makeup are obviously unattractive even with it. (For example most emo girls cake their face in it, but are obviously 6/10s even with loads of foundation)

    But then you see "before and after" pics when celebrities use great makeup artists and it's like 5/10 to 10/10 wtf

    Girls can makeup make an ugly girl pretty? Do you think this is deception?

    Depends on how well the make-up was done

    Depends on how much makeup they put on

    I've seen a lot of celebrities who do it. They can probably afford really good makeup people though

    those photos are photoshopped too and where the girl has no make up on, they usually wear glases, have their hair messy, look insecure and dont pose. This is to trick you into believing that the change is more drastic than it actually is. Also, when girls are wearing make up they seem to be more confident which adds to their beauty

    Clearly depends on what you consider ugly and pretty. But to answer your question, probably yes.

    it's how you apply it as well, the discussion of make up being a deception is so over-talked. if you feel left out, feel free to purchase your own and try it out.

    I'd post celebrity pics but Im gonna get flamed.

    Off the top of my head someone like Victoria Beckham though. Celebrity women are often really thin and gaunt, so while they look good with makeup on, their cheeks look sucked in and about 50 years old with it off

    It depends on the person :P

    Well if you're not very good at it (like me) you may just end up looking really silly xD
    Or if someone just copied a look they liked from somewhere that doesn't actually suit them they may also look silly...

    I know girls who are apparently "good" with it. I dont know many who can do celebrity transformations though.

    How do you mean by "suiting" though? Colours and stuff?
