Everyone likes different things. Especially when it comes to makeup. Some like to wear a lot of bold and extravagant makeup, some like a more natural look. Both and all approaches to makeup are valid. Everyone should be able to wear whatever they want and as much of it as they want. All over the world, expectations for women are really high, so at least we should let them and everyone else look how they want to look.

That's why it's so amazing what makeup artist Maria Kalashnikova does for women. She listens to what they want and transforms these beautiful ladies with makeup. There is no doubt they look stunning without it, but wearing makeup is not about looking more beautiful: it's about looking different, it's about changing up your look to match your style, mood, or event. And it's about having fun and playing with your appearance, creating art on your face and body.

Maria is very skilled at using makeup. She manages to bring out the best features in people's faces and make them glow. Maria has clients lined up for special occasions, events or just to pamper themselves. It's very amazing to see the happy and glowing faces of women when the artist is done with them.

There is a stereotype going around that women wear makeup for other people, especially men. Well, the thing is that most women wear it for themselves. Makeup is just part of your look and style. It's still the same person underneath all that makeup. Most women know they don't need it to look beautiful, but they still want to wear it because it's fun. And if some women don't, that's completely ok! Let's try to support and understand each other.

This is one of the best, because she's not loaded with eye makeup. It looks more natural and accents her features without overwhelming them.

It's quite ridiculous to hear that women are "catfishing" people by wearing makeup. I mean, isn't it obvious they don't have golden eyelids, bright red lips, or flushed pink cheeks? If you get tricked into thinking that a woman with a full face of makeup actually looks like that all the time, how is that the woman's problem?

I like that she smiled in both pictures. Having the smile in the before helps highlight that makeup only transforms so much. The smile transforms just as much.

Absolutely beautiful eyes, in both photos. Almost other-worldly in the one on the right.
