We’ve been trying to do some pics of Rhian without make-up for a few years now but for one reason or another it’s not happened until now.
Our personal view is that make-up is one of the few holdovers from another century that is still popular in this one. Obviously it was invented to make women look more beautiful, but how did we decide on big eyelashes, dark eyelids, even skin, rosy cheeks, high cheekbones and red wet lips? Easy. Each of these represents a desirable quality. Big eyelashes represent youth, dark eyelids represent seriousness, even skin represents health, rosy cheeks represent purpose, high cheekbones represent strength and red, wet lips represent sexual availability.
Beauty is the representation of values, and since make-up represents those values, it creates beauty. But it’s our belief that there are more important values in life than the ones represented by make-up. For example, intelligence, benevolence, morality, courage, innocence, wisdom, etc.
We find that NOT wearing make-up is the best way to project these qualities. Which is why NOT wearing make-up can often make a woman more beautiful than wearing it can. We think this is true in this set of Rhian. What do YOU think?
