Russian hair and makeup artist Vadim Andreev shows what a little (ok, maybe a lot) of hair and makeup can do. While we've featured our fair share of artists on My Modern Met, this is one of the few times where we've shined the spotlight on a makeup artist. Using only cosmetics, and not any post processing software like Photoshop, Andreev transforms ordinary looking girls into ones you'd find on the cover of a fashion magazine. The blotchy skin has been perfected, the eyes are bigger, the lips more full.
Of course, as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and one can argue that all of these women are more beautiful as their natural selves. Let's open it up for discussion. Can we just appreciate the work of this makeup artist or do images like this hurt us in some way? What are your thoughts?
