Take a look at these makeup artists.

Wouldn’t you stop this young woman on the street to tell her that she looks cool?

Don’t you want to be this girl’s friend?

Would you not commit to this as a “going out” look?

Now watch as they ruin it.

Does this basic (and admittedly adept) contouring even COMPARE to the beautiful face paint monsters that they were before?

How can we move towards “clown contouring” when we’ve yet to accept the clown that lies beneath?

Fellow face paint monsters, I encourage you: Wear your face paint. Love your ghoulish self. Forget the contouring. Be truly free.

Sincerely,

a friend
