Y'know, I'm inclined to agree. I think many of the women in porn are quite attractive. And just remember, these are the photos of a make-up artist with a vested interest in the 'before' photo looking least flattering as possible. And who among us in our lives hasn't had a photo that didn't show us in our best light?

The last black lady got like 5 shades lighter, very fake photos.

I think this is silly, most of them look fine without makeup.

That's the thing about women sometimes. At least with men what you see is what you wake up next to.

That's entirely possible but that can be attributed to lighting as well. If you look at photos of dark skinned celebrities, you'll see a range of skin tones in candid photos because of changes in lighting and flash photography. It's true of celebrities of every color, but it's much more evident in those with dark skin.

I'm very conscious of room lighting when I go out. My husband laughs when I tell him "We have to move...I don't like this direct overhead lighting." Hell, it's why I insisted on dimmer switches throughout my whole house.

So true -- when I put on blush in my oddly color fluorescent lighted bathroom, I look like a hooker.... and in sunlight it's perfectly natural. (My bathroom is color blocked in day glo lime green and pastel blue)

More than half of those women just look plain weird/scary, with or without makeup!

Elle Alexandra (the green eyed redhead) looks great without makeup.

You can tell by the bad skin a lot of these women are on drugs. Some of them look so young though, it's kind of depressing when you think about what they are doing with their lives.
