@Chalket Yeah, and makeup also made one of the girls hair line move around an inch lower on her forehead, in relation to her eyes, the same girl's ears are different shapes, a few others ears are different shapes, as well as a few teeth being different shapes. I wonder about the teeth. Think there may be a reason most of them don`t show them? Nah, can`t be, they can be fixed with makeup! You go ahead and believe what you want. I agree, a lot can be, and is, done with makeup, but it only goes so far. I don`t claim to have any kind of "extra-sensory perception skill", just half-way decent "powers" of observation. Most people look at the world around them all day, every day, and see less than half of what they are looking at. You, unfortunately, seem to be one of those people.

@WhoSaidWhat I'm sorry if you think you have some kind of extra-sensory perception skills, but you don`t. You`re just underestimating a skilled makeover. When hightlights and shadows are expertly manipulated, you would be very hard pressed to tell, particularly from a 2"x2" internet photo.
There`s no reason to doubt that these pairs of pictures are the same women, none of the changes I see are at all beyond belief. I agree there`s more than just makeup, these are full makeovers so yes, some eyebrows were plucked and hairstyles were changed, etc. When makeup, lighting and staging are artfully combined you can most definitely achieve these effects you seem so doubtful of. Those "thick wrinkles" for example? It`s makeup, sure, plus a combination of lighting her neck into shadow and having her angle her body away and lean into the camera.

"Makeup seems to function for its intended purpose and I take that personally. Hygiene is unnatural and smacks of deception."
makeup =/= hygiene
Makeup is unhygienic. It's bacteria-filled chemical goop and powders. I specifically gave up make up because it was causing acne.
I actually do take it personally when the beauty industry sells us on the idea that we can only be attractive if we buy all their products. All the money I save on that crap, I`ll spend on a vacation and sexytimes with my man. I`ll save the time on an extra hour of sleep, which will do far more.
