Let’s face it, we do live in a society were wrinkles and aging are totally unacceptable to the ideal beauty standards set out by the society, so you either don’t care and continue to live your life regardless of these beauty standards (highly recommended), or you adapt. I’m no one to judge, whatever floats your boat, and if you give in to the pressure society puts on you, I don’t blame you, besides, there’s no harm in having a little fun. This has even worked out for a lot of people, I mean, they became world-known artists using just a makeup brush and an eyeshadow palette.
What makeup means to you, is totally up to you. Some people see makeup as some kind of art as a way to express themselves and do it simply for the fun of it, while for other people, it is simply a profession which they do for a living.
Such a person is Anar Agakishiev, a makeup artist coming from Azerbaijan who is so talented that he completely transforms women to look like half their age. Anar works in his studio in Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, where he transforms older ladies by hiding their wrinkles, under-eye bags, discoloration, and other stuff that come with aging. However, the beauty is still there, so he basically just helps them put it out there. I’m warning you, some of the makeovers are so drastic, that you will barely believe it’s the same woman. Keep scrolling down and take a look for yourself:
1. See? I told you, amazing
2. Truly wonderful
3. Can he also conceal my problems away?
4. Simply stunning
5. Love the bold lipstick
6. Rock it, glam-ma
7. Can you believe that is the same woman?
8. Ready to hit the town in 3, 2, 1…
Kudos to you, Agakishiev. Seriously though, could your talent perhaps work on concealing financial problems too? Just asking for a friend. *chuckles nervously*
