The Power of Make Up - Not always a Force for Good

Original Source

The entire world (i.e. Me) was in shock to see the above picture make headlines today. It's only a super slimmed down and make up free Snookie!

Viewers of the brain analgesic that is Jersey Shore will barely be able to recognise this loveable meatball. No poof, no print, no oompa loompa sponsored tan?! She could be Kim Kardashian's sister, let's face it, she looks more like her than Khloe. (Ooh, topical)

There are times (I'm looking at you, Britney) where a celebrity being caught without make up makes the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Unscrupulous magazines print entire sections of pictures of slebs sans slap urging you to feel better about yourself because the lady of the moment is not, in fact, immaculate 24/7. Yep, that totally validates me in my Puggs and sweats. (Penney's Uggs and actual sweats). I don't buy it. 

It's the same meatball, I swears!

The recent parody of Photoshop, Fotoshop, shows us how easy it is to misrepresent the truth and make ourselves beautiful after the fact, the question is why would Snookie do the opposite?

Girl is all kinds of gorgeous without the trowelled on Jerseylicious orange mask, how can she not see that?

There are days (They're mostly Saturday afternoons) when I can't be bothered to put on a bra, never mind the several step face preparation that is my working visage but, genuinely, had I the God given starting point like our Snooks? I would never wear make up again!

What do we think? Would you hold up to the baldy face Snookie test? Do you ever go out sans slap?
