Makeup: Chinese Celebrity Candids

I chose these photos 'cause I really felt none of the looks were that flattering, except for Gao Yuanyuan's natural look, maybe bad lighting was to blame. Perfect makeup shots are not inspiring to me, these more realistic ones are. Ultimately, having good skin matters more than knowing fancy makeup techniques, especially as we age. Gong Li has amazing skin, she's already 41 and has got no wrinkles or age spots.

i totally agree with you about beautiful skin vs. fancy makeup techniques, which is why i'm in search of the perfect foundation. i don't need heavy and i'm interested in coverfx.. a brand formulated by MAC artists but more so for skincare than theaters and runways.
