How Bananas Is This: Half A Woman’s Face With Makeup, Half Without

  • “Munner83” from Reddit posted this photo of herself last December. Our jaws dropped when we saw it. Photo:

    We just found out about an eye-popping photo on the online forum Reddit that we had to share, since it begs some serious discussion. Reddit user “munner83” posted a photo of herself with half her face completely done in makeup (including a deep smoky eye and contoured cheek bones) and the other half of her face completely bare. It’s a stark contrast that’s hard to ignore, and while it does speak to the “power of makeup,”

  • ” it also brings up questions about our perceptions of beauty—and the pressure we put on ourselves to conform.
    "Munner83" posted the photo in December, but the image rocketed to the top of Reddit’s rankings in April as a hot topic of discussion. Many users commended the young woman for her bravery, and pointed out it was an opportunity for her to overcome insecurities about her looks.

  • The discussion quickly turned to this foundation transformation video, featuring another young woman baring it all: she shows a completely makeup-free face with cystic acne, which she then amazingly hides with foundation, concealer, and more.

    Both of these ladies’ images bring up a number of questions, and we want to know what you think: Do you feel like there is an unspoken pressure to always appear perfect or flawless? What about pressures to conform to a particular standard of beauty?
