I don’t do my makeup regularly, mostly because I’m lazy as hell and like to sleep in more than I like to look pretty, hahah. That said, I always receive lots of compliments when I do my own makeup, so I thought why not at least start practicing and see if something comes of it? I can still go for a professional trial, so there’s no real risk.
… is what I thought, but as I was trying to photograph my makeup to post here, I finally realized what the hell it is that makes me hate every single fucking photo of my face.
Ladies and gentlemen, come one, come all, step on up to see the Amazing Two-Faced Girl!
See her smooth(ish) jawline on this side!
Then see her “this is what the other side of my face will look like in 15 years!” jawline on the other side!
I never actually noticed how prominent it is until I was trying to get side shots of my makeup (those first photos are after I’d removed it), but now that I have I can’t deaaaaal. I also know why it’s like that; when I was 18 I had surgical realignment of my jaw, in which they removed a piece of bone from that side because it was growing longer than the other side. This is what it looks like face-front:
I actually don’t think it’s as noticeable here, and to be honest, I don’t even notice it when I’m looking at myself in the mirror, I think because I’m just so… used to it. But the photos make it just, like, augh! I don’t know if there’s anything at all I can do–I mean plastic surgery is probably the only option, and honestly, if I’m too lazy to get out of bed 5 minutes early to put some eyeliner on I’m too lazy to go through elective surgery, lol.
Anyone else out there have a lopsided face? 🙁
… also just so you can see my first attempt lol–sorry I couldn’t get a better photo that didn’t involve absolutely terrible lighting or, you know, my sideshow face. (I definitely need to step it up if I want to do DIY, this definitely isn’t anything close to a final look!)
