  • Yes. And you know that's not pleasant & it takes away the likableness!! I have Daughters & told them before anyone really notices your outter Beauty your inner Beauty has to outshine it! Meaning you must have True inner Beauty to be a Great person! I tried to instill Kindness, Caring, Giving, Compasion, Empathy & everything Good into them! For that's True Beauty! That's what Mattters, counts & is most important!! They're 24 & 29.. I still hear Great comments on them from old Aquaintances, prior teachers Kindergarten on up, Doctors Etc... That's my Best reward! Sorry if I ramble & go on...

  • Yes, myself. I have had many pictures taken of me that I know how to "work" the camera.
    1. Drop the jaw a little- rid of a double chin
    2. No open collars- makes long neck look longer (my face is more important than the neck)
    3. Fluff my hair- brings more attention to the face
    4. Mascara and eyeshadow, but no eyeliner
    5. Lipstick- a must
    6. Less reference of shoulders to face- Face dimensions are easier to fake w/o shoulder reference
    7. Practice a smile that doesn't distort the face
    8. Consider plastic surgery in the future

  • Certainly - many celebrities are like that. You see them in a magazine and they look awesome, but to see them in person, it's like EWWW! The same with models. Makeup and PS do a lot to enhance a person's looks.
