Pobody's Nerfect

When I first saw the photo above, I thought it was a "before and after" for a new 90 day fitness program or some fad diet.  Imagine my surprise when I realized this "transformation" was actually the handiwork of makeup artist Gina Brooks.  In the article Beautiful Illusions, Gina explains how she was asked by a photographer to create the illusion of a "very fit and muscular body." Gina accomplished this task entirely with the use of makeup.  "We strive for beauty and to be beautiful often using the models in magazines as our ideal vision of beauty," Gina writes.  "It's good to take a 'behind the scenes' look at how that perfect beauty is often created."  In a world inundated with images of physical perfection, it is important to remember that more often than not these images are simply the work of smoke and mirrors.  Or in this case, makeup and a sharp razor.
