Makeup has been a very talked-about topic lately. A lot of people are discussing what amount of it is ok and what is too much. At the end of the day, it depends on the person wearing it. It does have the reputation of making people look different than they look. I mean, that's kind of the point of putting it on. However, the transformations we're about to share with you leave you pretty stunned and even make you question reality a little bit.

The Instagram account Asian Makeup gathers transformation videos from all over the internet and posts them for us to enjoy and marvel at. We not only see women change their look radically, but men also join in the fun this time!

Looking at all these pictures, it's like watching a group of people go through a homogenizer. They start out unique and interesting and distinct and all turn into generic "Instagram pretty" people.

What are your opinions on makeup? Do you wear lots of makeup yourself or do you like to keep it more natural? There have been lots of debates over what is right and what is wrong in the makeup world, with many people hating on the ones that wear too much makeup: "catfish," "take them swimming on the first date," and many other comments that probably make the person wearing the makeup feel discouraged and insecure.

This article on NBC News reads: "Using makeup doesn't hide women's 'real' beauty, it hides the labor that goes into meeting beauty standards. We’ve bought into the notion that it’s not just desirable, but mandatory to invest in the charade of what 'real women' look like." The article states that there is a danger when it comes to being too good at makeup. Many people think that makeup wearers, especially women, are trying to deceive men with their looks, but fail to see that people usually wear makeup for themselves and no one else.

There is a lot of pressure to look perfect. When you don't wear enough makeup—you're not trying or don't care about your appearance. When you wear too much, you are suddenly vain and deceitful.

I know makeup can make the bridge of your nose look narrower, but the base width and nostrils as well? I call filter.

However, according to this piece on Men's Health called '11 Reasons Women Look Gorgeous without Makeup,' women who don't wear a lot of makeup seem more confident, innocent, 'primal,' and sexy. It also states that they seem more outdoorsy, approachable, and down to earth.

As per this article in the New York Times, in most cases, men who try to prove that women look better without makeup using photos end up using pictures of women who are, in fact, wearing makeup. This just proves that most enjoy the 'no-makeup makeup look' that a lot of people like to do, especially for everyday purposes.

There's some photo editing here. The face shape has changed from diamond to oval and the whole face itself has become narrower at the cheek bones. I know she's in more of a 3/4 on the right instead of full face, but still...

None of you have seen these transformation videos have you? Filters are for videos and lazy ppl. But some folks use makeup to exaggerate features from tape, putty, contact lenses changing pupil size/Iris colour, to nostril extender inserter from the inside plus contouring and makeup. You've all seen movies right? Not everything is CGI, old school movies uses makeup like the movie "The Mask"...
