You know those days when you feel like shit? Your hair is kind of flat, you just can’t draw a perfect cat eyeliner and your skin looks bleh? Well, I can’t really solve that problem for you (you’ll just have to resort to the looks-are-not-everything motto for today), BUT I can show you an app that removes celebrities’ makeup so you can see how they look without so much powder!
I feel like your mood is getting better already. The app is called MakeApp. It’s available on iTunes and Android. The app is described as using a “neural network technology to digitally add or remove makeup from any face.”
This means that you can remove anyone’s makeup, even yours. But hey, we’ve seen ourselves without makeup too many times. What we haven’t seen is more celebrities without makeup. And isn’t that what life is all about — finding flaws in the people who come across as utterly perfect? I think so…
The problem is when the app removes the makeup and the celebrity still looks pretty good. Take Angelina Jolie without makeup. She looks good, maybe not as magnetic with her stare but she still looks great.
It's no surprise that Katy Perry looks good. This singer still has youthful skin. But do you notice how "normal" she looks without makeup? She looks much more approachable and less crazy without all that makeup.
Sadly, Selena Gomez didn't fare well with this app. Really, I'm starting to doubt the validity of this app now because she is the youngest out of all these women and she was made to look like a much older woman. This girl is much prettier without makeup but not in this picture.
Kim, on the other hand, just looks wrong. The Kardashian has been featured without makeup on the show and usually, she has dark circles under her eyes, just like the rest of us. In this "no makeup" shot, however, she looks like she was hit with a huge powder brush.
There's another shot of Katy Perry having undergone the Makeapp makeover. Except in this shot, Perry seems to be cheating. There’s still purple shadow on her lids and a touch of green under her eyes. Even her lips are a shade of pale pink.
There you have it, a couple of celebrities without makeup to make you feel better. But then, they didn’t look too bad, did they? And maybe, if you look in the mirror, you’ll realize you’re not looking so bad either. So get it together, pull up your hair, throw on some color on your lips, or don’t, and go conquer the world.
