There have been a few of these types of covers in the past, but here comes another one – this time its Jessica Simpson on the cover of Marie Claire WITHOUT make up. Apparently.
I have nothing against Jessica Simpson, other than the fact that one morning, a long time ago, one of her songs woke me up (I use a radio alarm clock) and I thought I had died of asphyxiation during the night and entered the the 7th circle of hell and that was what Satan had in store for me. Jessica Simpson songs over and over again.
So anyway, back on point.
Is Jessica wearing make up or not?
I say – from my utterly, totally, personal opinion – yes. She seems lightly flushed there, There’s some black eyeliner on her lower lid (it seems. Her brows are awfully defined for a blonde. She’s also quite matte (a lot of people get shiny during the day).
Whilst good lighting will help – trust me here – they will also show up the many flaws you have. Great clear lights + Great clear camera = Flaws magnified x 1000000000000000000
Here is what she really looks like with no make up on:
This is more realistic – circles and some redness around the eyes, redness around the nose, slight unevenness in the skin. This is exactly how I look without make up – red bits, blotchy bits, circles. Even with decent skin there are some flaws that are hard to avoid.
Also, for someone who is showing her face nude, she seems to be keeping a lot of it covered by hair and shadows:
I guess these days, one could have tattooed brows, tattooed lip and eyeliner, fake lashes – a number of permanent to semi permanent treatments which wouldn’t count as physically ‘adding’ more make up but nevertheless disguises a number of imperfections.
