I decided to go and do the challenge myself. I mean, it's not like I wear makeup to go run (wait, that's a lie, but I MOSTLY don't, except for testing purposes). So after I went for a quick saunter through Mordor (aka my morning jog), I decided to see if putting on red lipstick on a bare face really does make a difference...
...and it does. But it's not a GOOD difference.
JUST red lipstick makes my skin look more yellow, I look older, my lines and wrinkles look deeper, and oddly enough, I look more asymmetrical. I also look slightly unhappier in the photo on the right. Both photos were taken within minutes of each other, in the same room, same lighting, no filter in either.
I highly prefer how I look on the left to the photo on the right.
Of course, I know all the women in the group are all trained to say that all things Type 4 are automatically stunning and look better with bold lipstick no matter what blah blah blah, but I am highly disagreeing with this one. I look younger, healthier, happier, and way better overall in the left, completely bare-faced. *turns on location* Fight me.
