Check Out These Striking Photos Of Porn Stars Before And After Their Porn Makeup

porn5

So, this is interesting. Yesterday, Reddit got a hold of a bunch of “before and after” photos of porn stars designed to showcase the work of porn makeup artist Melissa Murphy, and I must say, she is good at what she does. Whether her subject is young and fresh faced or starting to show signs of aging, she makes every performer over in that same eerie, ageless, Barbie-like style of which the industry is so fond. Buzzfeed got a hold of them today, and looked up the actresses’ ages (which may or may not be accurate, of course) to weird it up even more. The lesson that I take from this is that while not everyone might have what it takes to be in porn, pretty much everyone has the ability to look like they are. But you probably already knew that. I am also a big fan of anything that shows porn stars as human beings and not just sex dolls, and I feel like the “before” photos give us a glimpse into the more normal, less “XXX” parts of their lives.

    This post made me understand what it is that I don’t like about most women in porn. All the makeup!! Sure, the foundation and concealer are fine, but that’s some serious eyeshadow! Visible makeup (except for red lips) is not appealing to me.

    Talk about the magic of make-up. I wouldn’t have recognised the befores and afters as the same person.

    Is it bad I think that’s probably a good thing to avoid harassment?

    I think one of most interesting things about this is that the women whose ages were younger looked older in the “after” shots (in my opinion, at least) while the women whose ages were higher looked a lot younger. Like, everybody looks about 27/28-years-old in these photos to me.

    Also, wow, Melissa Hill definitely does look like Kristen Wiig’s redheaded sister.

    Holy mackerel, this is amazing. They’re like optical illusions!

    The “after” shots all look seriously fake, and yet I have an overwhelming urge to kidnap the makeup artist, keep her chained up in my closet, and make her give me the illusion of cheek bones every morning.

    Ok this is screwing my head up pretty badly. Not because of the before-and-after shots, but honestly, like most guys I watch a good lot of porn and short of Daryl Hanah I have NO CLUE who any of these women are.

    So if I were a porn star, I’d never allow my before pics online. I’d want to keep my privacy.

    The porn stops when the fantasy stops.
