Are Makeup and Weaves False Advertisement?
I've seen this topic circulating before over the media and just recently today I saw a post from someone on Facebook about whether makeup and weaves are false representations of women to the men they meet, start dating and possibly get married to. I'm not talking about the basic makeup of a little mascara, gloss, foundation etc. I'm talking about having your face completely beat - where the makeup applied makes you look super gorgeous beyond what you may see in the mirror without makeup. That's the best way I can describe it. See some examples here:
As you can see both of these women look totally different after the makeup and weaves were applied, so much so that they almost look like two different people. I personally think they both look good without their makeup. However if they met a man while dolled up and then some time later he sees them in their natural beauty, would that be false advertising? Would it be understandable if the guy is upset with her "natural package" when he met and accepted her "dolled up package"?
I'm not a makeup person. Getting dolled up for me is adding mascara, eyeliner, lipstick and maybe some eye shadow. I also love adding weaves sometimes for a different look. So I'm not against the beat face and weave wearing. Although I can see where some controversy may come in with this topic. My solution is to show your man what you look like with and without makeup right away so he's not shocked when he finally sees you au natural weeks or months after first meeting you.
