I saw a youtube short that highlighted what a massive waste of money and time makeup is.

Look at all that product she has on her face. And in the end, once she was done blending it together, it made....no difference. She looked exactly the same, except a bit tanner maybe?

Sis started out looking like the Colossal Titan, yet a guy on the street would look at her and probably think she's not wearing any makeup at all.

Like no disrespect if makeup is your thing, but WHY do we do this to ourselves? She spent hours doing that. I don't know why she seemed upset to blend it when she knew she'd have to take it off at the end of the day anyway. You can argue that makeup is like art for your body but at least a painter won't break out in zits if he doesn't destroy his painting before he goes to sleep.

Apparently she likes to do SFX makeup which is cool looking but my god is it worth it? Literally every "remove my makeup with me" video has her wincing in pain. All I can hope is that youtube and tiktok pay her decent enough money to justify doing it.

I do like how expensive grooming is now being sold to men and they are now big receivers of botox. Apparently, in the US, a large percentage of plastic surgeons are armed in the office due to unhinged male patients being unhappy with results and confronting them!

This is a sidestep, but: What is it about cosmetic surgery on men that inevitably results, if they have too much, in a more feminine look? Ivanka Trump's husband looks like Caitlyn Jenner just before the trans reveal. And much as I dislike the guy, he was quite handsome before. He had cute dimples. Zac Efron has started to look like a middle-aged woman after going through a weird uber-macho set of chins. What is it about the facial changes that begin to read as feminine?

I think it is due to shaving down the bones and cartilage. Also, getting your teeth too done can make men look very feminine.

The fillers and botox take out the "rugged" aspects of their face leaving them looking bizarrely smooth. The combination leaves them looking feminine.

Plastic surgery when done right for cosmetic reasons leaves the patients looking like they were on a nice relaxing holiday, not like a different person.

People from "old money" or certain backgrounds do not really bother with plastic surgery and if they do, it is incredibly hard to tell and never spoken about. This openness in this terrible practice is just reflective of the people doing it.

The state of plastic surgery is best reflected by how there are now "trends" in it.
