Skin photographs
Okay well here is the deal. Lately my skin is pretty bad. It makes me feel so down that often I can't go out. Its just lumpy, not on the sides of my cheeks but all around my nose and all over my forehead...just lumps, skin coloured lumps, its awful. My quirks are also really dark brown so I always look as if I have some weird moustache.

Anyway, I was wondering if i'm putting myself down for nothing. You see, most people airbrush their photos anyway. Or they just put flash on. I was wondering if anybody here would be willing to put up photos of their skin, not edited, no super flash. Just as is. I think everybody has a distorted view of what 'normal' and good skin is.

People say 'oh I had a skin peel and my skin is great!'. So I try a skin peel and then find out that their idea of great isn't my idea of great.

So i'd be really interested in hearing people's regimes and seeing unedited pics of skin. And if i'm feeling nice I might make you all feel better by showing my nasty skin (which used to be great, one of the few things I had going for me).

OK, sounds fair

Here's a pic of me with no makeup at all, and a pic with makeup


Not much of a difference but tired stoned eyes

Photos one and two have the correct lighting, that's my skin tone...

In Photo #1, you can see my nose area...
In Photo #2, you can see my cheek...
In Photo #3...... well... I tried to make myself look attractive, it didn't work...
In Photo #4, I look like a goof.

You can clearly see dark circles in all of the photos, which I have because I took a nap. Dark circles are not usually a problem for me.

As you can tell, my skin is very clear, but I have a ton of moles. Most of them are not as pronounced as they are in the photos, except for the two on my right cheek, that I used to hate but now adore. Sometimes I even darken them for added mole glamour.

Prep, your eyes and lips totally remind me of Angelina in the 3rd picture.

Elle, you look like a supermodel or something.

Both of you look like you have better skin than Angelina.

oh no, all you guys have such amazing skin XD

TSCP: I think moles are great, I have a load but i've come to pretty much accept them, I hardly notice them anymore...you remind me of fiona apple a little...thanks for the photos!

Ale: your skin is just ....wow. I love the skin tone as well, its so even. Maybe I need more sun and exercise or something.

Elle: ....wahhhhhhhhhhhh

*cough* i'll post a picture later when i've woken up and my skin is less puffy ;D
