13 Amazing Before And After Makeup Photos

There is a popular saying in Russia  that before you marry, you should take your bride to the sauna first. You may think it has to be done for some dirty purposes, but actually wise men explain it differently:

“When you go with your chosen one to the banya (Russian word for sauna), you can see the real person, without all the cloths and all the cosmetics that can deceive you greatly and affect your choice.” (englishrussia)

But remember, it’s an old saying/tradition long before the Photoshop era – so today this sauna test is probably even more important than ever before.

If you still don’t believe it’s necessary – Vadim Andreev, makeup artist from Russia, has an amazing portfolio of before and after makeup photos you should definitely see!

What do you think?

  • Anca

    This one : is not only make up but very obvious Photoshop too (look at her lips and nose dimensions).
    Nevertheless, cool job(s)!

    • illustrator101

      to be fair, it can be done without photoshop. it can be done with a very light type of foundation and diffuse light (when taking the picture) from one side and a stronger one from the other. the light effect on the picture dissolves the contours of her nose making it look smaller.

  • Andrey

    it’s just makeup and photoshop. Prior to this model without makeup – such a contrast

  • Matisse
  • Norian

    Way too artificial but still amazing work on changing those looks.

    The only one I consider beeing good is number 12 and it´s her lips only. She´s got perfect lips and he just took them a made them visible. That is a good job.

    Cool post though.

  • Daniel

    El maquillaje de verdad que hace milagros.. De echo hay personas que sin maquillaje son irreconocibles..

  • Kamila

    # 3 & 9, amazing!!! Huge contrast and great job for all!

  • Cristina

  • Ccru4real

  • Lili Flores

  • shai
